Transcript June 4,1982 / Montrose Voice 17 MontroseArt 'Sculpture and Fiber Hangings' at the Art League Photostory by Ed Martinez Across the street from Texas Art Supply at 1953 Montrose sits a modest little house that has been converted into the home of the Art League of Houston. This fellowship of Houston area artists and patrons was founded in 1948 to promote interest in the achievements of its members by providing a showcase for artists' work and studio workshops for learning. This non-profit league, a community- oriented, educational organization consisting of over 700 members, has become a vital force in the development of Houston artists. It is the only institution in the city providing continuous juried exhibitions with the opportunity for workshop and studio participation. The current exhibit at the Art League, "Sculpture and Fiber Hangings," is open to the public at no charge through June 16. The judges for the exhibit are Mary Ellen Whitworth, M.E.'s Gallery, for fiber hangings, and Charles Hooks, Hooks-Epstein Galleries, Inc., for sculpture. The Art League offers continuing education for its members in the form of meetings and programs with speakers, demonstrations and films, as well as workshops in painting. The League has been serving our community for almost 35 years. The exhibit currently underway is one of the more exciting and interesting shows the group has presented. The sculpture entries are particularly good, and the fiber hangings are a medium that seldom receives its just consideration in the art world. Of particular interest is a sculpture by Elsie Azadian entitled "Woman number 2," in clay. It has depth and intensity that is compelling. The viewer seems drawn in by a cavernous feel created by the space within the work. The piece represents a woman's head and, like all good sculpture, makes you want to touch it, to feel how the artist achieved her effect. This same artist has another work, "Mother and Child," a bronze which has a strong resemblance to the work of Bran- cusi, or perhaps reminds one of Brancusi. All three of the works of this talented woman are strong and display great talent. Ofthe fiber hangings, the works of Marion E. Cole seemed most impressive, partly, of course because of their size. They are both large works, and display a range of feeling that, while representational, also portrays a kinship with recent trends in modern art. Both pieces depict the human form, the one in "Forces," and the other in "Defeated." Of interest also was the work of Trace Guthrie, whose "Reaching," a bronze, won third place in the sculpture category. He was represented by two other pieces in the show. Mary Narum's sculpture "Mirror, Mir- "Defeated" fiber hanging by Marion E. Cole "Woman 2" clay by Elsie Azadian "Mirror, Mirror" clay by Mary Narum ror" displayed a haunted face that indicated a depth of feeling often lacking in modern sculpture. She also had two other pieces in the exhibit. The winner of first place in sculpture was an amusing bit of Tinkertoy craftsmanship of the kind that one frequently sees at art festivals but usually doesn't want to buy. The first place winner in wall hangings was a lovely saddle blanket that apparently got placed on the wall by mistake but won anyhow.
