IN PLACE: REGINA AGU AND SHANNON CRIDER
February 28 - April 11, 2019
This exhibition includes two Houston-based artists, both of whom were residents of the 2017-2018 Artist Studio Program at Lawndale Art Center. Regina Agu and Shannon Crider both work across multiple mediums, drawing from pop culture references and lived experiences. They both create alluring and subtly subversive artworks seeking to tell stories that have been otherwise suppressed.
February 1 - May 4, 2019
Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition, began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 32nd year, the exhibition shows the top national and international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media.
This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts and the City of Denton.
