The Bosch Bash

The Bosch Bash
Saturday, April 22 at 8:00 PM

This year, Women and Their Work's annual spring bacchanal, The Bosch Bash, is an ode to Hieronymus and his seminal 16th century triptych, "The Garden of Earthly Delights." Inspiration abounds in this colorful panoply of animated figures, fantastical animals, oversized fruit and hybrid formations! Partygoers can expect specialty cocktails; (suggested) hedonistic attire; a triptych photo booth; Elysian performance; an animalistic art auction; and more...

Suggested Attire: Hedonistic or Hybrid. 

At the lovely home of Kimberley & Dan Renner above The Renner Project; 3018 N. Lamar Blvd.

Greener Pastures

Liss LaFleur
Greener Pastures
March 11 - April 20, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 11, 7 to 9pm

GREENER PASTURES combines kitsch, objects of consumerism, and queerness to position performance and media artist, Liss LaFleur, as a cowgirl on a new frontier. Included in this exhibition are five new performances captured in photography and video, along with leather, aluminum, glass and neon sculptures. LaFleur's work often originates with the artist creating extensions of the body as props for performances to exploit how history, language, and expectations work to etch identity into (or out of) one's existence. For GREENER PASTURES, LaFleur confronts the biological, historical, and political ideologies of the cowgirl to outline a new conceptual territory surrounding sensuality, the feminist body, and the South.

Heat Loss

Heat Loss
January 21 - March 2, 2017

Liz Rodda's work involves investing found materials, primarily video, with meanings unintended by the original maker. This process begins with a broad search online and in the physical world. After developing an archive of material to work with, her role shifts from a collector to a curator of sorts. The disparate materials she collects are then paired, manipulated, and reframed to enable new interpretations.

Studies for Future Objects

Ana Esteve Llorens
Studies for Future Objects
November 17 - January 12, 2017

In Studies for Future Objects, Ana Esteve Llorens examines space and form through sculpture by creating an ambitious 20-foot long structure made of interlocking wooden panels that commands the gallery. In addition to defining the space, Llorens emphasizes an on-going dialog with the body by creating human sized cutout voids in the panels. Exploring ancient techniques, she also creates weavings that are hung on the wall; all made by hand on a back strap loom, they are dyed with natural pigments extracted from plants, seeds and insects. Through this process, Llorens investigates our understanding of time, place, and memory.
