Native Houstonian and artist Howard Sherman assembles an exciting exhibition of paintings by some of the city’s cutting edge visual arts talent.

Curator’s Statement:
“Picking this exhibition has been an effortless pleasure. Early in the curatorial process I realized that I was attracted to these artists because I am interested in many of the same things in my own studio practice: matters of tactile surfaces, hard edge graphics, and unorthodox processes which cause irregularities in one's work to fully bloom. These artists take these notions and twist and turn them into their own distinctive languages. Come in and listen to them speak.” - Howard Sherman
