NEWS HCCC to present 'Reminiscential'

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft will present Reminiscential April 5 through May 26 in the Artist Hall, 4848 Main Street.

With the investigation of memory, remembrance and the materialization of these ideas as a common thread, artists Clare Finin, Rebecca Drolen, Robert Thomas Mullen and Deme Wolfe-Power have created distinctive works that pay homage to the rich history of memento mori
objects and Victorian sentimental and mourning jewelry. Through the use of materials often regarded as repulsive or grotesque, many works in the show ask viewers to reevaluate and challenge their conventional notions of beauty. 

HCCC Curatorial Assistant Ashley Powell, who curated the show, was captivated by the work.

She said, “Objects made to remember someone, something or sometime are what we use as tangible reminders of the most valuable and ephemeral possessions that make us who we are as individuals. I was inspired by the ways in which these four artists so uniquely materialize their inner thoughts and emotions.

HCCC is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on  Sunday, 12 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Free parking is available directly behind the facility, off Rosedale and Travis Street.
