The Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery of Art proudly presents the first art exhibition of the Spring 2016 semester, Household, a group exhibition that includes artists Bradly Brown, Jeff Gibbons, Candace Hicks, Clayton Hurt, Shelby David Meier, and Tiffany Wolf.  The exhibition will be on view from January 11 – February 12, 2016.

This exhibition derives its title from Allen Kaprow’s seminal happening Household. In his essay “The Legacy of Jackson Pollock” from 1958, Kaprow envisioned a “concrete art” made from everyday materials such as “paint, chairs, food, electric and neon lights, smoke, water, old socks, a dog, movies.” The artists in this exhibition produce work that exists in the wake of Kaprow’s thoughts and methods. Reference or use of commonplace materials is a common thread throughout while a range of issues about language, form, and meaning is explored by each artist.

Bradly Brown holds an MFA from Texas Christian University. He is a co-founder of the artist collective Homecoming! Committee and currently serves as an artist in residence at Lawndale Art Center in Houston, TX. Jeff Gibbons holds an MFA from University of Texas at Arlington. He is the co-founder of Apophenia Underground and has exhibited widely at venues including The Goss-Michael Foundation (Dallas, TX) and Gallery Homeland (Houston, TX). Candace Hicks holds an MFA from Texas Christian University. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at Stephen F. Austin University and has exhibited widely at venues including Lawndale Art Center (Houston, TX), and K-Space Contemporary (Corpus Christi, TX). Clayton Hurt holds an MFA from Texas Christian University. He served as President of the long-standing artist run 500X Gallery in Dallas. He has exhibited at venues including 500X Gallery, and Brand 10 Art Space (Fort Worth, TX). Shelby David Meier is an MFA candidate at Southern Methodist University and a member of Homecoming! Committee artist collective. Works have appeared at venues including Oliver Francis Gallery (Dallas, TX), and Anya Tisch Gallery (Houston, TX). Tiffany Wolf holds an MFA from Southern Methodist University. She is Assistant Curator of Education at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and is a co-founder of Homecoming! Committee artist collective. Works have appeared in venues including 500X Gallery (Dallas, TX) and Brand 10 Art Space (Fort Worth, TX).
