The 5 Best Things to Do in Houston This Weekend

Houston PressPosted September 15, 2014 in In The News

The eight women currently in residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft — Christina Carfora, Paris Jomadiao, Grace Zuniga, Lauren Salazar, Caitie Sellers, Delaney Smith, Kamila Szczesna and Demitra Thomloudis — exhibit their latest creations in the group show “In Residence: Work by 2013 Resident Artists.” Two of the women, ceramist Carfora and filmmaker Jomadiao, have been profiled in the Houston Press 100 Creatives series. Carfora’s work often examines the relationship between change and preservation and is frequently inspired by her travels (she’s visited 23 countries so far). Jomadiao uses her cut-paper illustrations in stop-motion animations and experimental films. Her work often reflects the duality of objects in the physical world and images in the digital realm. There’s an opening reception with the artists at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through November 9. 4848 Main. For information, call 713‑529‑4848 or visit Free.
