    Will Henry is a visionary artist based in Houston.  VAA will visit his studio, which is rarely open to the public. He and arts writer Garry Reece will discuss the current works Henry is readying for his next exhibition at the Galveston Arts Center in May. VAA members and guests will be the first to see these new paintings. The studio visit will be Saturday, Jan 4, 11:00 a.m., at Winter Street Studios, Studio 10, 2101 Winter St, Houston, TX 77007.

    Will Henry says of his work, “The paintings have a strong sense of narrative and the landscape functions almost as a backdrop to the drama that unfolds. Growing up in a rural area the landscape really imprinted on my psyche and noticing a sense of sparseness of melancholy or loneliness.”

    Leslie and Brad Bucher Mandell Artspace

    Designed as a private retreat and housing a major collection of contemporary and Latin American art, this converted plumbing supply warehouse is tucked away in Houston’s eclectic Montrose neighborhood. The collectors are strong supporters of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and in addition to an outstanding selection of modern and contemporary Latin American Art, have added a special balcony room focused on the works of alumni of the Museum’s Glassell Core Program. The collection tends towards minimalism and most pieces reflect a strong geometric component, including works by Kelly, Judd, de Kooning, Nevelson, and Eliasson and a strong Latin American emphasis with works by Soto, Cruz-Diez, Oticica, Kuitca, Crespin, Saraceno and Neto. Site specific installations by James Turrell, Soo Sunny Park and Henrique Oliviera round out the collection.
