D.M. Allison Art Presents Wanda Alexander and Chris Hedrick

Art making is a process. A kind of development humans consider their natural right to control. So art resists us. Art stares up at us from a blank canvas or page, from the noiseless ivory rectangles of pianos, from the shapeless lump of clay sitting in the pottery wheel, from the empty seats in the auditorium-muted, deaf, blind. No matter how much we kick art in the shin, pound our fist into its chest, call it foul names, pull its chair out from underneath it, and cry and cry and cry, art, often, refuses to budge. But sometimes art cooperates as if it wanted to help ... Read More »

Tony Feher

Artists have a way of taking lackluster, commonplace things and turning them into gallant masterpieces. In creative hands limited spaces become endless, small ideas inflate into ingeniously crafted concepts,  and the indifferent become the impassioned. This interest in turning over useless, inanimate scraps of household waste has consumed much of sculptor, Toney Feher’s, artistic energies. UH’s Blaffer Art Museum exposition of sculptor Tony Feher currently awaits local art devotees. The exposition, started October 13th and ending March 31st, showcases a 20-year collection of Feher’s sculptures. The materials that comprise Feher’s work are the kind of stuff, again-stuff- you might nag your roommate’s about disposing ... Read More »
