Transcript CLYDE A mystical exhibit from a Great Gator by Betty Yancey Clyde Connell is an organic artist; her work develops from her environment. It is obvious not only from her sculpture and scrolls but from the names she gives them. Hearth Stones, Daily Bread, Family, Non Person Woman, Crow's Foot Woman, Heart Guardian, Gate of the Circling Wind, and finally, the habitats: Habitat I, Inner Place Habitat, Woods Habitat, and Vine Habitat. These are the titles in a sculpture exhibit now on display at the Lawndale Annex of the University of Houston. "I always wanted the creative experience from my environment. It didn't work though until the 1950*8 when I moved to Lake Bisteneau (near Shreve- port, Louisiana) with its cypress trees, branches and moss which I now use in my work," the artist recalls. "By this time," she says laughing, "I was in my 50's too." She feels she has finally worked out her own personal style to her satisfaction with material from her own surroundings. "I make a cedar form and cover it with papier-mache-which I make out of paper and Elmer's Glue-all—then I add the iron work (old rusty machine parts)." The materials are "folk" but the art is abstract and severely modern, not primitive and naive. Her seven-to-nine-foot-tall papier- mache sculptures or habitats are shrines Betty Yancey is a photography student at the University of Houston who has been taking her lunch breaks and communing with the artist at the Lawndale Annex.
