LUBBOCK AREA FOUNDATION

2015 HERO’S LUNCHEON HONORING ALAN & SANDY HENRY

11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Overton Hotel & Conference Center

2322 Mac Davis Lane

http://communityfoundationofwesttexas.org/hero/

When selecting honorees for the Hero’s Luncheon, we look to those whose initiative and accomplishments have brought significant benefits to Lubbock and the South Plains Area. We believe Sandy and Alan Henry exemplify the spirit of the Hero’s Award.

As a couple, Sandy and Alan Henry worked hand in hand to achieve success on a personal level and a community level. As students at Texas Tech University, Alan and Sandy met at the Baptist Student Union. Romance blossomed and they were married in 1966 and they were soon off to Washington, D.C. for Alan to work for Congressman George Mahon. The Congressman quickly 2015-Heros-Save-the-Date enlisted Sandy to assist West Texas constituents when they came to the Capitol. Alan and Sandy soon learned that community service is a family endeavor.

Their collective service has enhanced the quality of life for the citizens of Lubbock and the South Plains civically, culturally, and educationally. As the 2015 Heroes of the Year, the Sandy and Alan Henry Endowment will be formed in honor of the Henry’s. The Sandy and Alan Henry Endowment will be making a difference both now and long after the Henry’s great-great-grandchildren are grown.

We invite you to join LAF in honoring Sandy and Alan Henry as the 2015 Heroes of the Year.

In an time of synthetics and plastics, folks appreciate the real thing. Musically, we look for songs that reach beyond our eardrums, touching our hearts. Cody Johnson’s unique blend of Country and Rock does just that. Many Texas Music fans met Cody Johnson’s honest style through the radio singles from his Six Strings, One Dream album: “Nobody to Blame” (#6 on the Texas music charts in 2009); #1″Pray for Rain” (2009 – 2010); and “Texas Kind of Way” (#6, late 2010 – 2011).

At first opening for other artists, Cody has also taken the Texas dance-halls by storm. Increasingly, the Cody Johnson Band is the attraction, and an honest-to-goodness one. Cody’s childhood, though, was different from his rowdy onstage personality. Growing up, home was Sebastopol, a speck on the East Texas piney woods map, the perfect setting for that country boy to roam the woods, hunt, and fish. Home-schooling and family times around the piano provided the kind of life the kind many folks envy. Even Cody’s music training started when dad Carl taught him the chords to “I’ll Fly Away,” a Southern Gospel favorite.

Starting public school as a freshmen, Cody expanded beyond playing the guitar and drums at church. When his “ag science” teacher overheard Cody playing an original song, he convinced Cody to form a band with other FFA (Future Farmers of America) members. A few months later, Cody’s band placed “runner-up” in the highly competitive Texas State FFA talent contest.

Halloweek!  $500 prize for top Halloween costume!

Receiving a hand up in this business of music from the likes of Ray Wylie Hubbard is no small accomplishment, and that mentorship – and sometimes harsh instruction – was not lost on Sam Riggs, who has had the fortunate opportunity to meander through Wylie’s cerebral countryside over the last few years. At the time of their meeting, Riggs was already a commercially-viable songwriter with an impressive root system, having sprung from his family’s musical genes; but he was still feeding off the unripe fruits of his youth. Through the songwriting school of Hubbard, he learned the time-honored virtue of patience and the aptitude for turning the rough and tumble falls to the ground into a steady, recovered gait.

“He opened my eyes to songwriting, and I could see the idiot I had been and the idiot I was going to be, and he helped me to navigate that. He taught me what it really is to be a songwriter.”

Those rough and tumble falls steadily began upon Riggs’ relocation in 2007 from his home base in Florida to Austin, Texas, after some friends brought him a CD from the prominent Texas-based band, Reckless Kelly. Their unprocessed lyrics and raw production hit Riggs squarely between the eyes, like hammer on nail, driving him to plant his personal flag in a place where he could be his own artist. His inception was less than spectacular, as he struggled to imprint himself on the hearts of Texas Music fans while also drawing heavy influence from commercial radio. With hard stares and indifferent responses, Riggs diligently worked to strip down the polish and bring out the more natural shine – a task that resulted from the truth that, as Riggs so accurately put it, “You can’t bullshit a Texan.” The experience was both a breath of fresh air and a simultaneous smack in the face, and it ultimately cultivated the signature collection that is his debut record release, OUTRUN THE SUN.

CELEBRACION

October 16 – November 29, 2015

The Buddy Holly Center is proud to announce the opening of Celebraciόn, an annual invitational exhibition of artwork that explores the history and meaning behind the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Día de los Muertos blends the Catholic traditions of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 1st & 2nd) with pre-Columbian concepts of death that have been a part of Mexican society since Aztec times.  Modern traditional Día de los Muertos festivities take place on November 1st and 2nd, and are a time of remembrance, reunion and feasting. Artists are not limited by choice of media, but are asked to focus on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one.

FOYER GALLERY

CAMPOSANTO SUITE:  ART FOR ETERNITY

October 2 – November 29, 2015

Photographer and life-long resident of the Texas Panhandle Jim Jordan will showcase a selection of his photographs taken in cemeteries throughout Northern New Mexico. Unlike modern perpetual care cemeteries, camposantos graves are often highly individualized with hand-made monuments using humble materials such as cement, wood, scrap metal, AstroTurf and lovingly decorated with artificial flowers. In Jordan’s words, “I find camposantos to be very special places of devotion and remembrance.  As historian Bill Green says about cemeteries, “Every plot has a story.””

Please join us at The Buddy Holly Center on October 30, 2015 from 6-9 p.m. for Procesión, Lubbock’s citywide observance of the Día de los Muertos holiday, and meet artist Jim Jordan. Camposanto Suite: Art for Eternity will be on display in the Foyer Gallery.

COREY ESCOTO:  SCREEN PLAY

SRO Photo Gallery

Multimedia artist Corey Escoto crafts multi-exposure photographs with Impossible Silvershade™ instant film for his Screen Play Series by using hand-cut stencils inside his camera to “control exposure possibilities and the pictorial illusion.” With photography as a means for generating illusions of depth, texture, and coloration, Escoto incorporates texts into his sumptuous photographs that ‘expose’ common Hollywood tropes and question the “mechanics of the illusion” as well as the influence of popular media in today’s consumer society.

Corey Escoto holds an MFA from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, and a BFA from Texas Tech School of Art in Lubbock, TX. He is currently a member of the Visual Arts faculty at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and he is represented by Regina Rex Gallery in New York, NY.

The Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall will feature Glenn Downing exhibition One Way Ride. “A traveling hoot’nanny filled with hijinks and hilarity”.

October 2 – November 28, 2015

http://lhuca.org/christine-devitt-exhibition-hall

Glenn Downing grew up in China Springs, near Waco, Texas. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Texas Austin. Downing is a Professor of Art at McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas.

Downing’s artwork is raw and real. Through aggressive and consciously intuitive mark-making, Downing’s work tells stories visually. Using a wide array of materials, Downing produces bright, larger than life drawings and sculptures that do not conceal the artist’s process. This exposed process allows the work to have the impact that it holds. His work captures emotion. Downing refers to his artwork as his “visual tunes combining materials and images like notes.”

The Helen Devitt Jones Studio will feature James Watkins exhibit Reflections. “I am influenced by many cultures and people, by my experiences in faraway places, by acute observation of nature and, in some way, by every object that I have ever seen”.

October 2 – November 28, 2015

http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

I am trying to make vessels of clay that appeal to all my senses: hearing, taste, sight, smell and touch.  Each piece is comprised of preserved memories from both a personal history and a borrowed history.  It becomes an artifact of my reality, made up of historical references, cultural melodies, dream images, physical stimuli and an aesthetic vocabulary.

I am influenced by many cultures and people, by my experiences in faraway places, by acute observation of nature and, in some way, by every object that I have ever seen.

My work is influenced by layers of remembered images.  These images come from memories of my mother and grandmother making soap and washing clothes in black cast-iron caldrons and memories of scaling the scorched canyon walls of Rattlesnake Canyon in the Pecos wilderness to see ancient pictographs.  The long-ago memory of holding a twelfth-century Song dynasty tea bowl in my hands in the basement of the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, led me many years later to firing a five-hundred-year old wood kiln in Jingdezhen, China. There are memories of reading about the Senoi people of Malaysia who trained themselves to become conscious while dreaming in order to bring back images and information to the wakened state. The memory lingers in my mind of the ineffable beauty of the sun setting behind the great Shinto Torii on the island of Miyajima, Japan.  I also keep in mind the internal visions of the high and low intervals in the one, two, three, four rhythm time of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”.  My strongest memory is or my daughter’s response at age five to a platter that I pulled from the kiln, “um, yummy, Dad.”

In my current work, I am actively participating in the rite of remembering, and using this rite as a creative mechanism.  The forms challenge me to explore the perfect balance and depth of visual texture that I remember from the Song tea bowl.  As I mentally listen to Coltrane’s energized rhythms, the studio becomes a place of improvisation.  All of my memories become players – composing vivid internal images of form, line and movement.

HELENN J RUMPEL:  FOUR DECADES OF ART 

Gallery 1

October 2 – December 20, 2015

This exhibition will feature approximately 60 of Helenn Rumpel’s embroidered works, paintings and ceramics spanning four decades. Rumpel, who died in 2014, was a Santa Fe-based artist best known for her “creative stitchery.” Combining vibrant colors and energetic textures, Rumpel joins threads, cloth, varieties of stitches, dyed fabrics, yarns, sparkling materials, beads, and found objects to explore landscapes and cityscapes. The subjects of her artistic world are international, spanning the mountains of her home in New Mexico, Greek villages along the Mediterranean, onion-domed churches in central Europe and Russia, rural villages in Germany and England, and Byzantine architecture. In addition to acclaim she earned in textiles, Rumpel also painted in oil and watercolor and created ceramic pieces. This exhibition celebrates her rich career as an artist.

ANSEL ADAMS: AMERICAN MASTER

Galleries 2 & 3

August 14, 2015 – January 17, 2016

Selections from the David H. Arrington Collection

This exhibition is a collection of 103 photographic works of art surveying a lifetime of creative insight and photographic acumen by American master, Ansel Adams (1902-1984). Adams prevails as a premier American artist of the 20th century and his images established the standard for American landscape photography. The masterful photographs have been curated from one of the largest collections of Adams art work in the world. Midland, Texas, resident David H. Arrington, an advocate and student of Adams’ artistic methods, has gathered together not only many hundreds of Adams’ original works but the most iconic and finest prints that the artist ever completed. He has generously shared his collection with the Museum.

ANARTICA-PIONEERING AMERICAN EXPLORATIONS OF THE FROZEN CONTINENT  January 30-December 20, 2015

Main Gallery, Balcony and Gallery 6

Battling roaring winds, freezing temperatures, and crevasses, F. Alton Wade, joined the Second Byrd Expedition to Antarctica in 1933. He was appointed lead geologist for the Eastern Sledge Party, a 77 day sled journey into the unknown of Marie Byrd Land.

In 1939, Wade, returned to the icy frontier as Senior Scientist for the United States Antarctic Service to plan and manage the expedition’s scientific program as well as command the cutting-edge Snow Cruiser, a mobile research lab equipped with an airplane on its roof. Wade came to Texas Tech University in 1954 serving as Chair of the Department of Geosciences and leading 6 Texas Tech Antarctic expeditions. Wade was also a member of the first group of professors to be awarded as a Horn Professor. In 1971, he created the Antarctic Research Center at the Museum of Texas Tech University to further advance the discoveries of the Texas Tech expeditions that are detailed in this year’s featured Horn Professor exhibition, “Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent,” a new exhibit running Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University.

The exhibit highlights nearly 100 objects from the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, said Tabitha Schmidt, interim director for the Museum. Attendees can learn why it took 200 years before large sections of the Antarctic interior could be explored. Penguins, sled dogs, fossils of ancient animals, and a mummified seal tell the story of how this seemingly inhospitable landscape, 98 percent covered in snow and ice, has evolved and always teemed with life.

“Not only will you be able to trace the steps of Antarctic exploration, you can see how you would measure up to a life-sized cutout of an Emperor penguin, interact with games that test your knowledge of Antarctic exploration, learn about the Frozen Continent’s prehistoric tropical past, and see what parts of an actual exploration campsite would have looked like,” Schmidt said. “The exhibition also features a large mock glacier in the main gallery that contains a continuous mural depicting Antarctic scenery. These are experiences you will not want to miss.”
REMNANT TRUST

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –
THE ART OF EDGAR SOTELO 

August 22 – November 21, 2015

A one-man exhibit featuring 22 oil paintings by Western artist Edgar Sotelo.
Sotelo is a fourth generation artist who was born in Durango, Mexico, and came to the United States to attend Texas Tech University. He graduated in 1988 with a degree in food technology from the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. As a student, Sotelo paid some of his college expenses with the proceeds he earned from selling pencil sketches.

After years of working in corporate America, Sotelo now devotes full-time to his art career.

He lives with his wife and three daughters on a ranch near Sulphur Springs and raises American Quarter Horses.

Last year the American Quarter Horse Association named Sotelo as signature artist for its 2014 America’s Horse in Art Show and Sale. In addition, he has been the featured artist at such premiere events as “Trappings of Texas” at the Museum of the Big Bend at Sul Ross University and the 2015 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention.

A largely self-taught artist, Sotelo paints vibrant, accurate depictions of ranch scenes, charreadas (Mexican rodeos) and portraits. He realistically portrays the life of pioneers, Native Americans and the working cowboys and charros of the American West. Because Sotelo believes in experiencing what he paints, he attends charreadas in Texas and visits Texas ranches that allow him to ride alongside the ranch hands to observe, record and preserve the cowboy/charro way of life.

Sotelo’s paintings can be found throughout the country, including in the atrium of the Animal and Food Sciences Building at Texas Tech. His paintings have garnered national attention through award-winning placings at shows in Arizona, Texas and California. In addition, his work has been featured on the covers of such publications as American Horse magazine.

Most of Edgar Sotelo’s paintings will be available for purchase. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the National Ranching Heritage Center.

ACROSS TIME AND TERRITORY:  THE NRHC STORY

“Across Time and Territory: the National Ranching Heritage Center Story,” is a permanent exhibit covering the walls of the Don and Kay Cash Reception Hall. Material in the exhibition is present in a mural form with 3-D enhancements. Also in this area are two touch-screen monitors featuring attractive photographs of the structures in the historical park, presented in a virtual tour format, along with educational information about each building, available in both English and Spanish suitable for adults and children.
WRITERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE

The exhibit title – “Writers of the Purple Sage” – is a word play on Zane Grey’s famous novel, “Riders of the Purple Sage.”  Published in 1912, the novel set the pattern for the modern Western and sold over a million copies.

Owen Wister, who wrote “The Virginian: A Horseman of the Plains,” had his 1902 novel form the basis of four movies and a television series.  Wister’s novel defined the Western genre and paved the way for such authors as Zane Grey, Louis L’Amour and Larry McMurtry, all of whom are represented in this exhibit.

Writers such as Willa Cather, J. Evetts Haley, Tom Lea and Elmer Kelton, to name a few, allowed every one of their readers a chance to experience the American West as it once was or might have been.  Written in ordinary language about ordinary people and places, Western literature has become an important part of our national literary scope.

The permanent collection of the NRHC includes a wide range of Western and ranch-related books, many of which are first edition signed manuscripts that will be part of this exhibit.

BLUE STEVENS GALLERY

The Blue Stevens Gallery is home to a collection of items that have been donated to the NRHC over the past several months. This Gallery features changing content as new items are donated to the NRHC.

CENSORED!  WALT WHITMAN’S LEAVES OF GRASS

Her awards for this feature include First Place Winner of the Greenpeace Postcards from Climate Change and Special Jury Award at Alexandria Film Festival, as well as, official selections at Environmental Film Festival in Nation’s Capital, Blue Sky Animation Festival, and more.

he Ballad of Holland Island House is a moving tale of the environment and home. Using stop motion animation specially created with clay-painting. Tomlinson’s piece is as active as the ocean, making for an unique visual experience for audiences. Told from the perspective of a home, the last remaining on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay, the film follows the devastating and emotional impact of sea level rise.

LANDMARK ARTS AT THE TEXAS TECH SCHOOL OF ART PRESENTS THE EXHIBIT:  DRAWN, QUARTERED: MARKS BY GHISLAINE FREMAUX, SCOTTY HENSLER, HANNAH DEAN AND MICHAEL GLENN

Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents the exhibit, Drawn, Quartered: Marks by Ghislaine Fremaux, Scotty Hensler, Hannah Dean, and Michael Glenn, at the TTU Satellite Gallery as part of the November 2015 First Friday Art Trail. The exhibit will be on view from Friday, November 6 from 6-9 pm and by appointment through Saturday, November 21, 2015. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

For the artists featured in Drawn, Quartered, a mark on paper, canvas, or other surface “is always begot of pressure, of a bodily antagonism between things;” the mark is engendered by dialogue and signifies dialogue, and it is a “testament of sight, cognition, and affect.” With distinctly different subject matter, styles and approaches, artists Ghislaine Fremaux, Scotty Hensler, Hannah Dean, and Michael Glenn explore these considerations of mark-making in the drawings and paintings presented, investigating the potentials and limitations of “corporeality, observation, doodling, diagramming, and handwriting.”

Drawn, Quartered presents works by Texas Tech School of Art faculty, staff, and alumni. Ghislaine Fremaux in an Assistant Professor in Painting at the Texas Tech School of Art and holds an MFA in Painting from Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA. Scotty Hensler is the Assistant Director for Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech School of Art, and holds an MFA in Painting from Texas Tech University. Hannah Dean is an adjunct Art Instructor at Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, TX and holds an MFA in Painting from Texas Tech University. Michael Glenn is a curatorial assistant at the Museum of Texas Tech University, and holds an MFA in Printmaking from Texas Tech University.

The Unique Works of Richard Slechta

INHERENT TRAJECTORIES

Opening at the Science Spectrum

Oct. 16th, 2015 – January 10th, 2016

The Science Spectrum Museum is delighted to present the enigmatic chromogenic photograms of Richard Slechta’s Inherent Trajectories.  Slechta’s art process is a simple one: light = color.  It is the basic premise of how we perceive our natural world, only with Slechta’s art; there is a very specific place and time of this occurrence.  John Cage once said, “There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time.  There is always something to see, something to hear.”  In the photograms of Inherent Trajectories, that principle is turned into moments of transience.

Slechta is a descendant of the Action Painters such as Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly and the like who made art that had an unmistakable ‘physical’ aspect.  In this instance, the term ‘physical’ refers to the fact that when one views the works of the aforementioned Modern Masters you imagine the artist in the act of painting.  Slechta’s art has that imprint.  His process is about recording movement and time, which is how any physical act is interpreted and understood.

The complexity and the ‘control’, for lack of a better term, comes from the paintings he creates to make his photograms.  Using permanent pigments over prepared acetate, Slechta paints hard edge, geometric compositions that are later employed as a sort of negative that filters direct points of light.  Working in a totally darkened space, the ‘Action’ begins when Slechta moves a pen light across the surface of the painting.  The light, which travels through the pigment is filtered in varying degrees by color, paint thickness, time and distance. Each piece is unique – one-of-a-kind – as the variables can never be duplicated.

Slechta has no preconceived notions about representation when he makes his marks with light.  Yet, viewers cannot help but see horizon lines as we tend to look for something to ground us.  However, after those needed anchors are set to rest, the art tends to lean more toward the realm of the afterimage – something one might see when one’s sight is temporarily blinded by a flash, and vision first begins its return.

The beauty in Inherent Trajectories is its simplicity.  Once the paintings are made and laid upon the light sensitive paper the most elementary factors such as the gentle ripples in the acetate, the time of light exposure, the speed of movement and the opacity of the pigment leaves us with both the elements of chance and the fleeting aspects of control that make Slechta’s art truly uplifting and inspirational.

Admission to Inherent Trajectories is included with a regular museum ticket of $8.00 for adults and $6.50 for kids (ages 3 to 12) and seniors (ages 60+).  Inherent Trajectories is on display in the ExploraZone gallery on the ground floor of the museum.
