UH exhibits students' artworks

Poetry, paintings, sculpture, colorful mixed media and photography are part of the 8th Annual Warehouse Art Crawl, which will feature artwork from UH current and past students.

The event will take place from 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday, exposing Houstonians once again to a potpourri of art media.

At 7 p.m. today, students can get a good warm up for the aesthetic marathon workout at the grand opening of ARTfx's new art exhibit at the Archive Room of the College of Architecture Building. Admission is free.

At the opening of Momentum: The Charge of Destiny, ARTfx will be offering refreshments and lectures about the artists' works. The exhibit features poetry, covering aspects of spirituality, sculpture, colorful mixed media and photography.

A man playing a violin and mannequins with eerily life-like appearances are some of the featured photographs. The exhibit's paintings range from the still-life of a peach to the abstract.

UH students did most of the works presented, but alumni also did a few.

Senior media productions major Monica Adams will be performing an interpretive dance of "Egersis." The title of the poem, written by Darrell Williams, is Hebraic for "Resurrection."

Some of the pieces will be for sale, and a catalogue might be published for potential patrons.

ARTfx is the first official UH organization to actively involve all mediums of art and to encourage artists to plug into the community. The club offers opportunity for artists to network and focuses on culturally relevant topics.

ARTfx meets regularly at 7 p.m. Monday in the University Center.
