All About Art League Houston

Art League Houston

Art League Houston was founded in 1948 with the mission to connect the community to contemporary visual art. It does this with a series of exhibitions and programs that are accessible to people of all ages. Learn more about what is going on at Art League Houston right now and make plans to visit.

Current Exhibitions

Time is running out to see some cool exhibits at Art League Houston. Several exhibits are wrapping up on July 20.

First, you can see “Flicker Futures.” Bill Brown and Sabine Gruffat created this three-part analog-digital art installation. This installation takes filmmaking methods of the past and projects them onto the future. You will walk away with a different idea of screens, projectors, and film frame after you see this exhibit, and it will make you wonder what the future will bring.

“So It Will Be” is also at Art League Houston until July 20. Houston artist Daniel Heimbinder is known for creating complex works with watercolor, ink, and paper, and he has reached a new level with this installation. His pieces dive into the human mind and paint a dystopian picture. The images are surreal and apocalyptic and will make you feel to your core. That is what great art does. It leaves an imprint on you that lasts forever.

You will also want to see “Ubuntu: I am because we are” and “Sustainable Lifeguard Chair Chicken Coop (SLICK).” Both projects are visually stunning and will provide you with insight into contemporary art.

What’s Coming Up?

Art League Houston already has its schedule set through 2020. That schedule includes an installation from Margarita Cabrera. Her work has been displayed all over the country, including the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. She is just one of the countless prominent artists that will be featured at the art league soon.

Open Studio Figure Drawing

Seeing all this art might make you want to pick up your paints. There’s just one problem. You don’t know the first thing about creating art. You can learn by attending an open studio figure drawing class at Art League Houston. The art league hosts open sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. You can join for just $20. If you are a member of the Art League Houston, you will only need to pay $15 to attend a class.

This is a really neat class. You will sketch, draw, or paint a live model. The class will have a proctor who will help you work on your technique. Attend as many classes as you want. You don’t need to register ahead of time. Just stop by with your money and get ready to learn.
