Texas Emerging Vol. 1

 

Texas Emerging: Volume I opens at Foltz Fine Art for a summer virtual exhibition, on view July 24-August 29, 2020.

 

Starting July 24, 2020, Foltz Fine Art presents Texas Emerging: Volume I, an ongoing series of group exhibitions featuring emerging visual artist of all disciplines from the state of Texas, co-curated with visual artist Jonathan Paul Jackson.  In this debut exhibition, aptly referred to as Volume I, five extraordinary Houston emerging artists on the rise are being showcased: Tom Bandage (sculpture - Austin/Houston),Theresa Escobedo (photography/installation - Houston), Ronald L Jones (mixed media/installation - Houston), Matt Manalo (painting/mixed media - Houston), and DUAL (painting/installation - Houston).

 

In the first volume, the caliber of the artists’ work combined with their innate sense of altruism towards fellow artists and within the greater art community that link these artists together; whether by curating exhibitions for fellow artists, organizing art shows to raise funds for charitable causes, running studio space for other artists, or having produced public art projects.  Each of their individual efforts and dedication to the arts in Texas is impressive; and, in return, we wanted to celebrate these five artists, just as they have inspired so many others. 

 

This summer is unlike previous ones, as attending art shows has been made all but impossible with the current social distancing requirements amidst an atmosphere of uncertainty in our city.  However, art must go on. And it is the artist, as cultural barometers of our times with their unique ability to perceive and express the complexities and absurdities in our society, that we must support in this time.   

 

While we do not know what tomorrow may bring, art must persevere.  Even the favorite Glasstire’s maxim “Go See Some Art” meets a new frontier, blurring the line between traditional gallery exhibition protocols with an introduction to new media and more integrated use of video and virtual environments within existing programming and platforms.

 

It is with this hybrid type of exhibition, which will likely become the norm soon enough, that we present Texas Emerging: Volume I, giving a physical space to the exhibition, but presented as virtual shows so that the audience is not limited by proximity, physical space, or time constraints.  

 

Here, the artist, after months of being resigned to their studios, are able to create installations for their work in a gallery space for public viewing.  With the presumed limited viewing times, the show will be made available virtually for wider audience access and enjoyment.   

 

Jonathan Paul Jackson, as curator and virtual tour guide, will walk the viewer through the gallery space, while engaging with the artists about their work.  Additional interviews will be available, following each artist from creating works in their studio through the final installation, allowing viewers a unique opportunity to learn more about each artist and their process.  

 

While we cannot replicate the immersive experience of attending an art exhibition in person, we hope to leave the viewer with a sense of connection, having witnessed and participated through this additional content. For those in need of art and inspiration, we hope this will quench your thirst.


Texas Emerging: Volume I will be on view for 4 weeks at Foltz Fine Art starting July 24th, with opportunities to view the works in person and meet the artist by appointment.
