It’s the morning after and - we gotta say - cheers to the artists in RESIGHT!

They DID IT, y’all!
They hauled their artwork across the country and fully embraced the spirit of the HUSTLE in our city. Props to this group of creatives for their D-I-Y attitude and for being all in for an experience in our super non-traditional venue.

If you catch any of these lovely folks out and about this weekend, welcome them and thank them for the H-town love!

Super duper special thanks to Tere Garcia for spearheading the RESIGHT effort and for being such a wonderful catalyst for bringing communities together.

Job well done, Parsons friends!

Join us for our Open Studios event to learn more about EL RINCON SOCIAL. Truly the last artist's run space of its kind in Houston, TX!

El Rincón Social (The Social Corner) works through and expands from local means. According to exhibitions coordinator Juan Alonzo, the spirit of El Rincón Social lies in the collaborative nature of a self-sustaining community that is “earned and built, not bought. Each who arrives here has something to show and teach, and likewise will find something to see and learn,” he says. “The challenge of collective and collaborative endeavors is in the balance of independent thought and universal engagement — in the task of sustaining a creative ecosystem that allows for personal growth while simultaneously maintaining a mindful objective to have a proactive relationship with our community.”

EL RINCON SOCIAL's Open Studios Resident Artist: Dylan DeBock Conner, born in Houston, received his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD and studied Art History at the University of Houston. Conner explores material, form, and process directly in the new works to debut in this exhibition. Concrete, steel, and plaster are the foundations of Conner’s most recent body of work. He investigates the dualities of liquid and solid, rigid and fluid, movement and rest. His latest series employs unique casting techniques, honed and developed through years of experimentation. Materials used are found, fabricated, manipulated and molded in these works that respond to the exhibition space. Controlled fabrication is complemented with an allowance for the materials to behave according to their physical properties.

Y'all. MECA is seeking art donations to auction at their Gala event this month. The date is real quick-fast upon them and they've asked if I know any artists who'd be willing to donate artwork. I'm looking at each of you, if you have something - cause MECA is an amazing organization who does super work in our community on shoestring budgets. Anyone willing to donate an item? Admission to the event comp'd.
CLEAR DRIVEWAY PLEASE!!! Please park across the street tonight. I will be loading trailers up with my firefly Sculpture tomorrow morning and we need room to maneuver a forklift and stage trailers. Please tell your friends who might come here the same thing.
