2016 Houston Bay Area Juried Exhibition
June 3 - Aug. 11, 2016
The University of Houston-Clear Lake Art Gallery hosted its second Houston Bay Area
Juried Exhibition in summer 2016. On view was a diverse selection of works by eight
artists who live within a 30-mile radius from UHCL. The exhibiting artists -- Paul
Atwell, Scott Bruno, Helena Gijsbers van Wijk, Cynthia Giron, Douglas Hiser, Rebecca
J. Hopp, Beth LeBlanc, and Ricardo Rivera -- were selected from a larger pool by exhibition
juror Daniel Fuller, who is the curator of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. For the artists in the show, this exhibition afforded them the opportunity to present
their talents in a highly professional and academic setting. For UHCL, the presentation
of works reinforced the university’s position as the hub of the visual arts in the
Clear Lake area.
This exhibition was generously funded by Lunar Rendezvous Festival and the UHCL Alumni Association. In-kind support for the opening reception was provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
