    12th Juried Invitational Exhibition

    The Silos on Sawyer 1502 Sawyer St 77007 (Map)
    Exhibitions

    Each quarter, Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) hosts professionally-juried art shows as part of the effort to create more opportunities for established and emerging artists alike to connect with the viewing public. On Wednesday, August 9, VAA will host an opening reception for the 12th Juried Invitational Exhibition from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., with an awards presentation at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on display from July 31 through August 26 at The Silos at Sawyer Yards, 1502 Sawyer Street, Houston. The public is invited to attend.

    The exhibition is juried by Catherine D. Anspon. Since 1998, Catherine has covered the Texas art scene for PaperCity magazine, where she is currently an Executive Editor, based in Houston. Her byline has also appeared in Artnews as its Houston correspondent, Art & Antiques, Spot, and Glasstire, and most recently, Artdesk and Cultured. With a Master's in Art History, this Pittsburgh native — who's obsessed with Warhol — has served as an independent curator, and is the author of the volume Texas Artists Today (Marquand Books, 2010). Catherine is looking forward to serving as a juror for VAA's 12th Invitational Exhibition, and plans to profile the winner on PaperCity's website.

    Exhibiting artists will have the opportunity to give a short presentation on their work and answer questions from the audience. The artist talk will be Saturday, August 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
