My current work “reduces” the female figure to a basic shape inspired by the Woman of Willendorf. We can only estimate the ‘when’ and ‘how’ of this figurine, but looking at it today, to me it represents the beginning of “woman” without assumptions and expectations. Maybe a second chance for humanity to let ‘Woman’ be.

I am honored to be working along artist curating her next solo exhibition. Please save the date.
Through the work of multidisciplinary artist Angela Corson, this exhibition intends to raise critical consciousness and motivate individuals to acknowledge everyday injustices. Themes surrounding misogyny, violence, and human rights are continually explored within Corson’s work, and she has taken the conversation further with her art by also tackling subjects such as race and historical events. Overall, this exhibit seeks to have the viewer acknowledge and recognize the derogatory perception of women, consider its ripple effect and ultimately empower women to work together and advocate for change.

New series. ‘Totem of Woman of Willendorf -num1- (2021)
I want to paint women without ornaments, striped her off of culture and language. I want to paint women from the beginning of humanity when beauty was manifested in the most basic and natural form. I want to paint strong women that are building a world, mothers of humanity, hunters, gatherers. Nomad women without nationality, viewed from the roots of the world we inhabit. Universal women without borders… I want to paint timeless women.

Last days of ‘The Glassell Connection’. - Figurative art in Houston - Make plans to visit before it closes on February 9! Showcasing present and former faculty (1st floor) and present and former students (2nd floor) of The Glassell Studio School. Artist and Dean Patrick Palmer wrote: ‘The figure. It pervades my art, my teaching,
my vision. I love it.
The human head is my primary inspiration.
How are people perceived through facial
expressions?
How do we view the illusion of power and
strength in others?
The figure speaks to me. I speak through
the figure.’
Very proud to be part of this ❤️.

Thank you to everyone who came out for this weekend! We are lucky to have so many great artists on campus, including Silver Street Studio's Artist Gabriela Monterroso in studio 101. Check out her work, "No Point Pretending" from a series of paintings (16x20" to 36x40") that focus on the female figure in a safe space.

If you didn't make it to all of our six buildings of open artist studios and exhibitions make sure to return for Silver Street Studio's new exhibition, "Collective Consciousness" up now through February 8th.

Save the date for our February Sawyer Yards Second Saturday and Second Saturday at Spring Street on February 8th, 12-5PM and come out for an awesome afternoon of art! We'll have open artist studios, exhibitions, The Market at Sawyer Yards and great food and drinks!

Congratulations to Sticky's Chicken too; their grand opening celebration Saturday brought in the crowds and celebrities to welcome our new chicken & foodie headquarters!
A rare picture of the artist at her home studio somewhere in Texas. (2019)
Taken by her biographer and probably the person who knew her best, this rare image captured the artist at work in her home studio.
Gabita used to work in a small room with a great view surrounded by souvenirs and antique findings that inspired her art. Paola, her biographer and also her muse, described this moment as follows: “While drinking a cup of strong guatemalan coffee, Gabita took a moment to reflect about the color palette she would use in her next painting. Gabita didn’t use brushes, but preferred spatulas and her hands, and mixed every color with bold and wild enthusiasm”
