Artist In Action: Jesse Lott2016
Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to present the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award in the Visual Arts exhibition: Artist in Action by legendary Houston artist, teacher and mentor Jesse Lott. The exhibition features a concise but detailed survey of over thirty works in sculpture, drawing and collage, which focuses on highlighting the three key materials in Lott’s work – paper, wire and wood. Pulling from art historical, political and personal references, the work in this exhibition reflects Lott’s profound engagement with the creative process, and his commitment to the value of lifelong learning and community building. In addition, the exhibition highlights Lott’s significant efforts as both a teacher and mentor, and includes work by some of the artists’ longtime students and co-collaborators; Patrick Davis, Kimberly Lakes, Angelbert Metoyer, Rhonda Rhodes and Kari Steele. An exhibition catalogue will be available featuring essays by Mel Chin, Pete Gershon, James Harithas, Patricia Johnson, and Rick Lowe.
