Mid-Century Mod in Motion, Stella Sullivan Retrospective

Stella Sullivan: A Retrospective
This exhibition will pay tribute to the life and work of Stella Sullivan, a true pioneer of Modernism in Texas. Stella Sullivan (1924-2017) was born in Houston, Texas. Early in life she received private lessons from artist, Ola McNeill Davidson, and attended classes at Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. After graduating from St. Agnes Academy, she studied architecture, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rice Institute (now Rice University) and worked for her father in architectural drafting. Sullivan then moved to Michigan where she studied at the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, later transferring to the Cranbrook Academy of Art where she graduated with her Master of Fine Arts degree. Sullivan was an instructor at the Museum School (now Glassell School) of Art, the University of Houston, Sam Houston State University, and the University of Delaware. She established the Stella Sullivan School of Art where she taught painting, drawing, design, and silk-screening during the 1970s. Her career as an artist and teacher in Houston spans seven decades. 

This exhibition will include Sullivan’s paintings, prints, textiles, life-drawings, and ephemera from her private collection.

 

Mid-Century Mod in Motion

Also on view in the interior gallery will be Mid-Century Mod in Motion. Just over two years after the opening of the exhibition This WAS Contemporary Art: Fine and Decorative Arts in Houston 1945-1965 organized by The Heritage Society, Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art (CASETA), and the Houston Early Texas Art Group (HETAG), Reaves | Foltz Fine Art revisits the often-overlooked Houston Handmakers group among others, highlighting many important works by artists Margaret Baum, Bill Condon, Henri Gadbois, Ruth Laird, Frank Dolejska, Stella Sullivan, and more.

The inner gallery space will become a menagerie of prints, textiles, garments, ceramics, sculpture, paintings, and source photographs. This compelling installation will open up a mid-century time capsule that may feel oddly familiar to today's Mod connoisseur.

 

Transformed

Two-dimensional and three-dimensional works and dynamic pieces that exist somewhere in between will also be on display. A dialogue occurs and poses the question, "What happens when an artist lets go of traditional expectations of medium?" Jack Boynton and Richard Stout attempt to answer this question by elevating everyday materials to create truly memorable works.

After graduating from St. Agnes Academy, she studied architecture, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rice Institute (now Rice University) and worked for her father in architectural drafting. Sullivan then moved to Michigan where she studied at the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, later transferring to the Cranbrook Academy of Art where she graduated with her Master of Fine Arts degree. Sullivan was an instructor at the Museum School (now Glassell School) of Art, the University of Houston, Sam Houston State University, and the University of Delaware. She established the Stella Sullivan School of Art where she taught painting, drawing, design, and silk-screening during the 1970s. Her career as an artist and teacher in Houston spans seven decades. This exhibition will include Sullivan’s paintings, prints, textiles, life-drawings, and ephemera from her private collection. Mid-Century Mod in Motion Also on view in the interior gallery will be Mid-Century Mod in Motion. Just over two years after the opening of the exhibition This WAS Contemporary Art: Fine and Decorative Arts in Houston 1945-1965 organized by The Heritage Society, Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art (CASETA), and the Houston Early Texas Art Group (HETAG), Reaves | Foltz Fine Art revisits the often-overlooked Houston Handmakers group among others, highlighting many important works by artists Margaret Baum, Bill Condon, Henri Gadbois, Ruth Laird, Frank Dolejska, Stella Sullivan, and more. The inner gallery space will become a menagerie of prints, textiles, garments, ceramics, sculpture, paintings, and source photographs. This compelling installation will open up a mid-century time capsule that may feel oddly familiar to today's Mod connoisseur. Transformed Two-dimensional and three-dimensional works and dynamic pieces that exist somewhere in between will also be on display. A dialogue occurs and poses the question, "What happens when an artist lets go of traditional expectations of medium?" Jack Boynton and Richard Stout attempt to answer this question by elevating everyday materials to create truly memorable works.
