Transcript Arts and evie on the other side of Main Street m^" Artist GERTRUDE BARNSTONE (far left) got lots of help unfurling 250 yards of blue and yellow nylon fabric up and over the Hermann Park reflecting pond for the recent Main Street '76 Art Festival. "Flowing nylon fabric interacts with wind and creates constantly changing forms -- a swaying sensor and reflector of air movements. In all of its vulnerability, fabric sculpture is thrilling and unique because it has a life of its own, ever changing and independent of its maker/' Gertrude Barnstone photos by Arlo Moore Craft Industries 78 Woodlake Square 1513 W. Alabama 789-8170 523-9518 specializing in Handcrafted pottery, folk crafts, Eskimo carvings, craft, stained glass, basketry supplies for pottery, macrame', weaving STICKER WOMAN BY JAMES SURLS First Prize in Visual Arts Projects Main Street '76 ti Ideas on Sticker Woman » By Becky Zeller To the subconscious of every woman, politically unaware, who sees this sculpture, a reinforcement of fear is again established to be forever aware of the power of the penis — the patriarchal system. Not to question absolutely, much less buck the patriarchal (male) heirarchy. Not only is this piece a blatant symbol of power, it can be compared to the porno-violence of the film Snuff. "Sticker Woman" is a phallus with knives projecting from it to kill when inserted. It simply represents — symbolizes - the death of womankind at the hands of the male system. What is most interesting is that in the raw naivete of this Texas male artist, he has made an object blatant in an art world that has worked at trying to be subtle, that has denied the existence of sexism and has presented its male art in male abstract form, consequently couching the patriarchal power in supposedly "high" art. I think the male art world has always understood the subterfuge it has perpetrated on the public, and this is proven by its stupid -- stupid politically -- award given to Surls for exposing a truth that's been so deviously hidden. I will not undermine Surls as an artist — in his honesty he has actually done all women a service. Only after sexism is so blatantly exposed can we fight it. As long as it is denied, it is impossible. Millet coming Nov 18 Kate Millett, renowned feminist author, is coming to Houston November 18 to speak on "Female Sexuality." Scholar, teacher, creative thinker, Millett is one of the most famous, most admired women in the feminist world. Her first book,.Sexual Politics, brought instant fame including her picture on a cover of Time (Kate Millett of Women's lib" August 31, 1970). The immense problems of dealing with the overnight change in the tenor of he* life resulted in her second book, Flying. As with most second books by writers who have achieved sudden suc- ces, Flying earned both intense admiration and vicious attacks. Millett survived both. Her creativity does not stop, with the written word: She is a filmmaker and has had one- woman shows of her sculpture in Tokyo and Greenwich Village. An active member of feminist groups, Millett has also worked for the Congress of Racial Equality and with NOW. KATE MILLETT Kate Millett is always search- lecture. Her lecture on "Female mg for new approaches and new Sexuality" will be at the UH interpretations. She likes to Agnes Arnold Hall at 8 p.m. on piece for each November 18. write a new November 1976 Houston Breakthrough Page 13
