Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out opens Sat., Feb. 3 at Valley House

Join us for the opening reception for “Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out” this Saturday, February 3, 6:00pm–8:00pm. View images of paintings in the exhibition online at www.valleyhouse.com

Cindi Holt is a self-taught artist who was first inspired to paint in 1985 when she was 34 years of age. Her richly-detailed paintings are imaginative, carefree responses to a place. Even the formal rooms she painted of the Texas Governor’s Mansion in the 1990’s have an energetic warp described by Clint Willour, “Patterns are chalk-a-block: bumping into one another; climbing over each other; jostling for space. Flowers on tables mate with those in the carpet and in paintings on the wall. Furniture takes on human form: chairs bow and tables stand on tiptoe…”

Central Market commissioned Cindi Holt to paint a three-panel panorama of the highlights of Fort Worth for their Fort Worth store, and a four-part mural for their cafe at the Preston Royal location in Dallas. The original paintings are on view at The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, respectively. Her painting “The Red Room” graced the 2004 Christmas card from The White House.

Cindi Holt is a California native who lives in Fort Worth and has been represented by Valley House Gallery since 2003.

Cindi Holt will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, February 17, at 11:00am.

The exhibition will be on view through March 10, 2018.

OPENING JUNE 18: Otis Huband

Join us Saturday, June 18, 6:00-8:30pm, for the opening reception for Otis Huband. At 5:30pm, Otis Huband will give a gallery talk about his recent paintings.

Valley House Gallery is pleased to present new paintings and collages in our second exhibition for Houston artist Otis Huband.  Born in 1933, and reared in Virginia, Huband began his formal art education after 4 years in the Navy.  He earned his BFA and MFA at Richmond Professional Institute of the College of William & Mary, now Virginia Commonwealth University.  Two years later, Otis and his wife Anne Hite Owen headed off to Italy where he studied painting and sculpture at Accademia di Belle Arti di Perugia.  They returned to the US and settled in Houston in 1965.  Huband begins his work with no preconceived ideas, but rather to discover what will reveal itself.  He states, I work from the inside out rather than from the outside in.  I do not try to duplicate reality, but to interpret what I see and create a separate, new and personal reality.
