Plausible Structures?
Scotty Hensler
Downstairs / Project Space

"A pool of ambient information encompasses us; I unconsciously and consciously filter and
sample from that expanse. There is a magnetic accumulation of notions and material
that impress upon me about place and person." This new work from Scotty Hensler is that
amassing of materials, both physical and in thought, that spawn from the artist's
relationships with art, art history, people, structures. The exhibition will be all new paint
and sculptural work with an installation art component. The materials are wood, oil and
acrylic paint, foam, nylon, plastics, found objects.
On Water
solo exhibition by Valerie Powell
Downstairs / Main Gallery
November 11 - December 3, 2017

Valerie Powell’s solo exhibition, On Water, features new drawings and sculptures as well as a site
specific wall installation, informed by the rising water of hurricane Harvey on the Houston area,
where she lives. Inspired by both the devastation caused by Harvey as well as the resilience of
the human condition witnessed by the kindness and generosity felt by many after the storm,
this exhibition of new work explores the tension of being under/on water. Continuing to investigate
the complexities of being human, Powell’s new work reflects upon memories of
floating and the sensation of being carried by a force greater then yourself.  On Water maps
both physical and psychological journeys navigating the space between disaster and hope.
Pass Trough Me
solo exhibition by Tabatha Trolli
Upstairs / Main Gallery


Tabatha Trolli’s solo exhibition, Pass Through Me, invites the viewer to inhabit a tunnel-like space as one
might if shrunken and placed inside of a whale…a tomb…an underwater cave.

The space itself is a passage, momentarily transfixed by its current place in time. Connections can be made
between the physical body and the sculptural object. Objects are imbued with their own unique appeal
and have no shame in their boldness. The sculptures are layered, worn and seem to have lived once
before, an alternate existence with different meanings. The artist is inviting her viewer to a place, vulnerable
yet unafraid, to stay true to oneself. Further, she aims to provoke them to consider their own relationship
between the objects and themselves.
