Nothing speaks of summer more than Houston in August. Days are at their hottest and always humid, the afternoons punctuated with dark clouds and thunder. Despite the climate, HCCC is alive inside and out with things to both delight and educate the eye. As for the Asher Gallery, we bring the inspirations of nature inside, to enjoy in a thoroughly civilized manner, with air conditioning and cool drinks. Join us this Thursday, August 16, from 5 – 7 PM, for a special opening reception for our Summer Trunk Show, featuring the leaf-printed wearable art of fiber artist Carolyn Dahl and the sinuous metals of jeweler Marcela M. McLean. The show continues on Saturday, August 18, from 11 AM – 4 PM, with additional access during the opening of Glass Graphica on Friday evening, August 17, from 5:30 – 7 PM. Continue Reading »
