David Waddell, media artist, Director of Media Studies at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and Lawndale Artist Studio Program participant, curates a video screening in two parts. The first part will include work from HSPVA's digital lab. The second part will be an eclectic group of artists selected from around the United States.

Waddell's videos have been screened in Washington, D.C., Chicago and San Francisco. His iPod work has been on display at Fotofest in the Fall 2008 and at Gavin Brown Enterprise, in 2007. He curated the show "Play" at Commerce Street Art Warehouse in 2007 and was included in Aurora Picture Show's Extreme Shorts (2009).

Audio Transmission for Beginners
Workshop with Nick Meriwether
Thursday, May 20, 2010
6-8 PM

Make a contact microphone with Lawndale Artists Studio Program participant Nick Meriwether. In this class you will learn the basics of electronics. You will also learn the fundamentals of soldering while creating your very own contact microphone*. Plus you will learn how to transmit sound through a laser beam!

It is easier than you might think. This class is for anyone with an interest. You do not have to have ANY experience or prior knowledge to be successful.

Registration for this class is required as seating is limited. Please register by emailing or calling (713) 528-5858. There is a $10 equipment fee for the class, which includes all of the materials you will need and allow you to take home the contact mic you make in class.

*(A contact microphone is a mic that is designed to transmit audio vibrations through solid objects.)

Gallery Conversation with Emily Ballew Neff, MFAH curator of American Painting and Sculpture, and Lily Cox-Richard
Thursday, May 27, 2010

Join the conversation as Lily Cox-Richard introduces her project The Stand, currently on view in the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, and Emily Ballew Neff discusses the complexities and significance of Hiram Powers' The Last of the Tribes, a sculpture in the collection of the MFAH and the impetus for Lily's project. Together they expand on ideas of density, tension, and conflict in sculpture. Following the talk, join Lily for a walk to the MFAH to see Hiram Powers' sculpture in person (On Thursdays, the MFAH is free and open until 9pm).
