Back and Forth

Octavia Art Gallery | Houston

November 8, 2018 – January 4, 2019

Opening reception: November 8, 6 - 8 pm

 

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present Back and Forth, a group exhibition including works by Gil Bruvel, Jerry Cabrera, Bradley Kerl, Jeffrey Pitt, Mason Saltarrelli, Regina Scully, Anne Senstad and Ken Tate. In celebration of our 10-year anniversary this exhibition celebrates the past, present, and future of Octavia Art Gallery.

Established in 2008, Octavia Art Gallery expanded in 2013 from its Magazine Street location onto Julia Street in the heart of the New Orleans Arts District andopened a second location in the River Oaks community in Houston. Over the years, Octavia Art Gallery has continued its commitment to showcasing the work of local, national, and international emerging and established artists along with modern masters, emphasizing the preservation and conservation of unique and authentic artistic cultures worldwide. The gallery also continues to offer a broad selection of works from 20th century artists. 
 
Out of the group of artists featured in our Back and Forth exhibition, 4 of these artists have been an integral part of Octavia Art Gallery’s program for several years including Gil Bruvel, Jerry Cabrera, Jeffrey Pitt, and Regina Scully. Their works explore various concepts such as perception, movement and energy, time and space, and the current state of our environment and our world. Although their unique styles vary vastly, these artists all use distinguishing forms of abstraction to express their individuality and to tell their stories.

Additionally, we are pleased to present the works by Bradley Kerl, Mason Saltarrelli, Anne Senstad, and Ken Tate. These artists offer a unique diversity for the present climate of the gallery’s program. Their works lean towards a more literal and representational visual language, focusing on themes such as metaphorical narratives, relatable idyllic still lives, experimental expressionand the phenomena of ocular perceptions.
 
In addition to showcasing dynamic art exhibitions, over the past 10 years Octavia Art Gallery has grown to provide art consulting services for corporate, legal, hotel, and healthcare facilities, as well as offering fine art appraisals. Looking to the future, the gallery is excited to invigorate and enhance our gallery program, provide literary services, and perpetually stay abreast of current trends and opportunities to exhibit the world’s best talent while maintaining our distinctive identity and aesthetic. 
 
The Octavia Art Gallery staff is honored to work with such amazing artists, clients, and institutions. We thank you and look forward to our next 10 years!
