Transcript June 18,1982/Montrose voice 27 MontroseArt New girl on the block: the Drawing Room Photostory by Ed Martinez It's always encouraging to see a new art gallery open. There seem to be so many convenience stores, junk food outlets and expensive "gift shoppes" popping up around Houston like toadstools after a heavy rain that it is a pleasure when Houston gains another art gallery, especially in Montrose (where most of them are located anyway) and even more especially when it is a good one. (Yes, gentle reader, there are, unfortunately, good and bad art galleries.) The Drawing Room, located at 3209 Montrose on the southeast corner of Montrose and Westheimer behind what used to be a Texaco station and is now a liquor store, is definitely striving for excellence. The current exhibit, entitled "The Other Dimension," will be on display through July 2. The show features the work of eight artists, all of them presently working in Houston with the exception of Kelly Fearing, who has been teaching at the University of Texas in Austin for 32 years. The Drawing Room makes superb use of limited floor space in the gallery, taking advantage of windows to give as much natural light on the works displayed as possible for those viewing the pieces during the day. The eight artisits selected for this show are obviously very talented craftsmen. Alice Cahana, Mark Diamond, Kelly Fearing, Donald Fox, Bob Graham, Otis Huband, Nancy Kern and Juan Vela all project works of finished and professional artists, each with his or her particular attitude toward and vision of reality. Of these artisit, several stood out as especially appealing, among whom are Otis Huband and Alice Cahana. Mrs. Otis Huband and "Rebe oil on canvas, at the Dr wing tto "Qumran Bathsheha," mixed Alice Cahana Cahana was born in Budapest and was the unfortunate victim of German concentration camps in 1944-45. She was educated in Tel-Aviv and Sweden, where many of her paintings are now in private and public collections. Her work in this exhibit centers around several pieces of mixed media which draw their inspiration from the Qumran, or Dead Sea Scrolls/manuscripts. These abstract works invite close scutiny, for they seem to contain more than is readily apparent at first glance. There is a dense kind of energy in these works, somewhat akin to closely packed molecules, apt to burst at any moment into something unknown or unknowable. They attract and compel attention, and at the same time, they disturb the mind of the viewer. Mrs. Cahana's talent is powerful and obvious. Mr. Huband has studied fine arts at William and Mary, with extensive further study in Italy. He has taught at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Rice University and the University of Houston. Says Huband, "Art, for me, presents the possibility of revelation. A food work is a presence in the room " Mr. Huband's work occupies a position somewhere between expressionist and representational, but unquestionably strong and unequivocal. His anthropomorphic shapes, the careful attention to color and line are tools to deliver a message that differs from viewer to viewer. Again, in the works ofthe artist, "...we should be able to recognize some hidden part or aspect of ourselves." The Drawing Room, in business since September, 1981, has made a bold beginning in furthering the caliber of art it seeks to offer to the Houston art scene. This show deserves the attention and support of Houston art lovers.
