House ofQnteman 901 West Alabama • Houston 77006 ■ i 7Vh 523-2521 Trudy Sween is obsessed with doors. 'Houston is a city where doors are being opened all the time," she says, "doors between countries, doors to transplanted northerners. When you think of all the car doors opening and shutting here every day. . .it can boggle the mind!" Trudy Sween's laugh echoes around the studio where she is currently busy preparing for the Doors show which will open Houston Festival /Main Street Plus on March 17. "Oh, I'd say around last November it was time to come up with a project for the Festival, which will grow, by the way, into a major annual international event during the 1980s. Britt Davis (of the Houston Festival Foundation) asked for a visual artist's idea for a show that would be a unifying gesture. Something to help build the reputation of Houston as an art town. I'd wanted to do Doors for a long time, so I suggested it. "Well, it got off the ground right away. Davis called Mr. Olshan, of demolition fame, and he donated 50 doors. Then I called some top name artists in town, and they not only accepted eagerly, but referred me to other people whose work they thought was worth including. So it's literally a show of Houston artists supporting one another." Fifty artists, including Gertrude Barn- stone, Jan Beauboeuf, Robert Fowler— and Trudy Sween—have been given S50 and a door and told to create a piece of art. The doors will be on display during the festival, March 17-25, at the Central Library, downtown, some indoors and some in the plaza outside. A phone call to a printer friend turned Trudy's original small grant for a black-and-white catalog into plans for a $10,000 full-color catalog of the show. And there are already plans for the Doors to tour. "Everybody's gonna do something WONderful, I know it. The idea's just caught like a fever," Sween exudes. That idea is simple: you don't have to go to New York to buy art. There are serious working artists here in Houston, and one of them, Trudy Sween, invests a lot of time in making the rest of the city aware of the local artists' existence, "Do you know that some 25 to 30 per cent of the art bought in New York is done by Texans? Now, that means one thing: we have no frame of reference here. We don't think local is any good. These artists find their buyers in New York, where the quality of their work is apparent, because there's a lot of art around to compare it with, " Susan explains. "For the local art scene to thrive, all you need is a little thought, a lot of energy, and a lot of money. Now that we have the Cultural Arts Council, all these artists are beginning to come out of the woodwork," Sween says. The Cultural Arts Council of Houston (CACH) was created a year ago to handle the funds-$1.6 million this year-generated by the passage of a hotel and motel occupancy tax earmarked for the arts. Trudy Sween is on the executive board cf the CACH, which registered 135 member arts groups in its first year. "Anyone can join. Individuals, too. Anyone can have a vote on how the funds are spent," Sween says. (Write: Cultural Arts Council of Houston, 2999 Wayside Drive, Houston 77023.) The phone rings. It's an artist who's heard about the Doors show and wants to be included But it's too late. "I know, I'd hoped we could have even more . . ." says Sween.
