About the Artists 

Emily Roysdon

Exploring the lineaments of love, politics, sexuality and gender—and sometimes all four together—Emily Roysdon’s works delineate both struggle and spontaneous joy. She works in film, photography, silk-screening, and bookmaking, as well as with many different communities to create her projects.

Cruz Ortiz: HECHO FARM

HECHO FARM is a stage for the continued growth of artist Cruz Ortiz’s lovesick alter ego Spaztek, as well as an exploration of the material, social, and political possibilities of collaboration within an art education context.

Liz Hingley: Under Gods

Under Gods showcases the intimate work of photographer Liz Hingley, who studies the myriad of faiths that make up the fabric of contemporary British society. Focusing often on material expressions of faith, she uses photography to reveal how religions are uniquely experienced and inhabited by people.

Future Regions

Future Regions pairs the paintings of Houston artist Shane Tolbert with the paintings of Austin artist Raymond Uhlir. The selected works reflect interests in monuments, materiality, natural and built spaces, irrational science, the Internet, and artifacts.

Now What It Never Was

In this group exhibition, Nick Griffin, Philip Harrell, and Anne Riley investigate the language of abstraction through the employment of additive and subtractive painting techniques
