&ldquo\;These artists moved Houston arts into the realm of complete abstraction\, covering an expressi onist gamut which ranged from highly-charged\, landscape-inspired canvases\ , to more sensual renderings attentive to light and atmosphere\, to freneti c figuratively-inspired expressions.&rdquo\;  \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; -William Reaves\, 2014\, William Reaves Fi ne Art\, LLC

Bayou City Chic \;was orig inally presented by William Reaves Fine Art LLC in Houston where it was see n in the early part of 2014. \; The art in the exhibition is created by artists who called Houston home and whose creative output is evidenced by the works in the exhibition. \; In 1950\, the city of Houston populatio n was 701\,000 and by 2010 had reached over 2 million people. Houston&rsquo \;s development as a major American city provides the backdrop for the arti st&rsquo\;s significant output. \; It was a time of great optimism\, en ergy and progress which met the needs of artists\, cultural centers and the public\, but also became a model of what social vitality could foster. The comradery and mutual appreciation for the art relationships that existed i n this culturally progressive city continues to be tangible today. The supp ort of the collecting base and the artwork that represents that dynamism is what constitutes this exhibition.

\n

Bayou City Chic \;o ffers insight into the mood and creative output of the time between 1950 an d 1980s.  \;Nine of the artists included are represented in the AMST&rs quo\;s permanent collection\, and \;Bayou City Chic \;will offer a wider field to examine their contributions and the development of modernism in Texas. Artists who are in the exhibition and are also included in the AMST permanent collection include Dorothy Hood\, John Biggers\, Mic hael Frary\, Lucas Johnson\, Earl Staley and Dick Wray. As the museum antic ipates their upcoming retrospective of Dorothy Hood\, \;The Color o f Being/El Color del Ser \;in the fall of 2016\, taking a closer l ook into artists who worked during the same years in abstraction in the sam e city\, reflects a palpable discourse that defines the energy and legacy o f the time. \;Bayou City Chic \;will exhibit Hood alongsid e many other contemporaries and we see this dynamism of abstraction by mult iple artists who worked during this &ldquo\;watershed&rdquo\; time period.< /p>\n

On \;Saturday January 31 at 10:00am \;join us for a brunch and panel talk on \;Art and Commerce: \; \;Pe rspectives on All Sides\, the artists\, the gallery dealer and the c ollector. Artists on the panel are Richard Stout and Noe Perez and collecto r David Ellis as well as Bill Reaves owner of William Reaves Fine Art LLC w ho together with Deborah Fullerton\, Curator for the art museum organized t he exhibition. This art program is underwritten by CASETA\, the Center for Study of Early Texas Art now based at the San Angelo Museum of Art whose mi ssion parallels the museum&rsquo\;s role in understanding the legacy and de velopment of the art of Texas over time.  \;The museum wishes to thank the collectors who loaned art\, Bill Reaves\, Sarah Foltz\, and all the sta ff of William Reaves Fine Art for their dedication to these artists\, and t o the organization of this work for exhibition. The catalogue will be avail able in the museum store and William Reaves Fine Art. Underwriting for the catalogue was provided by Gayden Family Trust.

In January we celebrate the coming of the light\, as does Erin Leichty\, in her new series of paintings entitled\, < em>Shadow Stories. Erin explores the idea that we are all made up of t he stories that were handed down to us from generations before and ones tha t were written for us from the day we were born. It is when we become consc ious of their influence in our everyday movements and choices that we can b ecome not just a reader and a repeater of our history but the writer of our own futures. Erin&rsquo\;s work travels through time exploring each powerf ul moment when a new story begins. \; Her graphic narrative enlivens he r panels as she pays homage to each shadow cast. Using layers of graphic ty pography\, photographic images of those she holds dear and sensuous layers of limestone clay and cold wax she is transformed from reader to writer\, v ictim to victor. Each panel a cathartic memoir designed to inspire the view er to bring their own stories to light.

During Doris Duke&rsquo\;s Shangr i La: Architecture\, Landscape\, and Islamic Art\, Shangri La The Center for Islamic Art&rsquo\;s residency program welcomes Iranian filmmake r and graphic designer Hamid Rahmanian. As part of the residency\, the Hono lulu Museum of Art is partnering with the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art to hold Shahnameh: The Epic of the Persian Kings\, an exhibit ion of Rahmanian&rsquo\;s innovative illustrations of the Shahnameh\, or Epic of the Persian Kings\, one of the great classics of wo rld literature. Consisting of some 50\,000 verses\, the Shahnameh was compo sed by the poet Ferdowsi in the late 10th to early 11th centuries\, but its origins trace back much earlier\, and it follows the history of the Persia n empire from its mythical origins to the end of the Sassanian period in th e 7th century.

\n

In 2013\, after thousa nds of hours of work over more than five years\, Rahmanian published a crit ically acclaimed newly illustrated edition of the Shahnameh\, revi ving once again its significance for a contemporary audience. Intended to m ake the epic accessible to a new generation of readers\, the bold\, dynamic illustrations seamlessly update the traditional aesthetics of historic Sha hnameh imagery. Rahmanian brilliantly took 15th- to 19th-century Iranian\, Mughal Indian\, and Ottoman miniature paintings as his source material\, tr ansforming them through digital editing into an entirely novel way of illus trating the text.

\n

The exhibition is p art of a larger series of events promoting arts and culture from the Islami c world\, presented in conjunction with Doris Duke&rsquo\;s Shangri La: Architecture\, Landscape and Islamic Art.

These mats&rsquo\; common denominator is plaiting&mdash\;they were wor ked by hand\, without a loom and originally made only of natural fibers\, s uch as pandanus (pandanus tectorius)\, rattan (calameae)\ , and other sedge grasses\, referred to as makaloa (cyperus laevigatus) in Hawai&lsquo\;i. Informally\, mats were used to create barriers\, t o insulate floors and walls\, or for sleeping. Officially\, they were used for receiving honored guests. Others may have been charged specifically for marking ceremonies and rituals\, worn around the hips as body adornment\, displayed as a sign of wealth\, offered in gift exchanges\, conveyed as eco nomic currency\, or presented in the investiture of chiefly titles.

This showcase of objects of Is lamic art from the spectacular Honolulu home of philanthropist and art coll ector Doris Duke (1912-1993) also includes new works by eight contemporary artists of Islamic background\, all of whom have participated in Shangri La &rsquo\;s artist in residency program.

\n

The works from Duke&rsquo\;s personal collection are being shown outside of Shangri La for the first time\, in an exhibition that was organized on t he centenary of her birth. After travelling nationally for two years\, the show ends its journey in the objects&rsquo\; &ldquo\;home&rdquo\;&mdash\;Ho nolulu. Large-scale\, newly commissioned photographs by Tim Street-Porter e stablish the context of the legendary five-acre property of Shangri La.

\n

Open to the public under the auspices of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art (DDFIA)\, Shangri La today maintains a collection of so me 2\,500 objects. With the estate able to accommodate approximately 20\,00 0 visitors a year\, the exhibition Doris Duke&rsquo\;s Shangri La is an extraordinary opportunity for thousands more to experience what guest curators Donald Albrecht and Tom Mellins call the &ldquo\;inventive synthe sis&rdquo\; of architecture\, landscape\, and Islamic art that Duke achieve d. In addition\, the exhibition is a must-see even for those who have visit ed the Diamond Head property&mdash\;most of the works in the show are not o n view at Shangri La.

In the 19th century\, the grap hic arts&mdash\;printmaking and drawing&mdash\;diverged from their traditio nal illustrative function to become fertile ground for innovation and perso nal expression. Noting this trend\, the influential poet and art critic Cha rles Baudelaire singled out printmaking as &ldquo\;the sharpest possible tr anslation of the character of the artist\,&rdquo\; and with this statement heralded an era of experimentation in etching\, draftsmanship\, and lithogr aphy.

\n

This exhibition traces the lega cy of Baudelaire&rsquo\;s observation through a selection of rarely exhibit ed fine prints and master drawings from the museum&rsquo\;s collection. Etc hings by Impressionist painters show how the numerous applications of this largely untested medium achieved unforeseen (and often astonishing) ends at the hands of artists famously concerned with the temporal and the fleeting \, while Post-Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist lithographs  \;demons trate how planographic techniques proved particularly appealing to artists seeking sharp linearity and chromatic precision. Prints and drawings associ ated with Symbolism will reveal how the intimacy of the sketch and the prin ted page yielded intensely private images that suggest emotional\, psycholo gical\, and even spiritual states\; as residual traces of first thoughts an d nascent ideas\, these works paved the way for Modernism in the visual art s.
