Winter Studio Update

Fall/Winter Studio Update 2016

Greetings Friends & Colleagues,

Happy holidays! I wish you well as 2016 comes to a close. I want to share what’s new, upcoming events, and recent developments and directions in my studio practice. 
Notably, I’ve been working on several small art journals this winter as a way to unwind. Sometimes, in the middle of trying to create work that speaks to social, cultural, and political issues, I need to take a break from big issues and just paint. For me, stepping away helps the work relax and allows new pathways to take form. Have a look,

If you’re not already aware, I filled the early fall season with several shows and an exhibition that I self-curated. I am glad to share with you some news coverage and photos related to a couple events. Thank you to everyone who attended and also to those who showed their support in spirit. Below are links and images:

·      Contemporary Art Exhibit Probes African American Identity,” The Austin Statesman (
·      Naming and Shaming: Deborah Roberts at Art Palace, Glasstire (
·      Coarse Coil Twist Re-twist, Art Palace (

Make sure to check out my current and forthcoming exhibitions. My solo show Coarse Coil Twist Re-twist at Art Palace Gallery in Houston is on view until this December 17th.

 Also, I am featuring work in two group shows between December and February. The first is Smart Dust at SLA 307 Art Space in New York City (December 9, 2016 to January 7, 2017). Second, MISCELLANEA in Austin runs between January 21stst to February 18th 2017.

I also plan to show work at the Warfield Center’s newly named exhibition space, the Christian-Green Gallery, late next spring in Austin. Be on the lookout for more information to come. It’ll be great to hear from you all, and thanks for staying tuned!

It’s funny how one part of my life has come full circle since my studio visit with the Studio Museum in Harlem. In 2006 I travelled to SMH to speak with Lowery Stokes Sims, then their executive director, and left with the feeling that much more work and scholarship needed to be done.  I met with SMH’s newest associate curator Connie Choi and assistant curator Hallie Ringle and felt good about it. Of course there is always work to do, but I feel much closer. Twins (2017) is now part of their permanent collection! Thelma Golden before Twins Nobody’s Darling: Women and Representation at UT Austin’s Christian-Green gallery continues over the course of this summer and concludes on August 4, 2017. As I’ve said, I’m thrilled to have support in Austin and am as happy to see varying interest across the US. I will participate in the 2017 Art on the Vine atMart…
