Drunken Poet's Dream : Lori Vrba

It's a big weekend for art in Houston and I'm so thrilled for my lifelong friend,

Lori Vrba

, who's in town for the opening of her show, Drunken Poet's Dream at

Catherine Couturier

Gallery.

The exhibition opens this Saturday, March 29 and runs through April 26.

Ubiquity

The Gallery is exhibiting two new bodies of Lori's work,

Drunken Poet's Dream and Assemblage

Following is an excerpt from Lori's artist statement:

“My recent foray into the assemblage work feels like an organic extension and progression of my photography.  My imagery has a strong narrative component as does each assemblage piece.  I am a lifelong collector of curious oddities and I love transforming space, whether it be for an exhibition or my home.  The photographs are finished in encaustic for both the aesthetic and archival properties.  Bringing these elements together is just another way for me to tell a story.  My own.”

Lori's show runs in conjunction with

FotoFest

which is offering portfolio viewings of the artists work in attendance. This is a great opportunity to view current work from artists that are in town attending FotoFest and is open to the public. If you're a collector, or someone who's always wanted to collect art this is an excellent way to get acquainted with artists and their work. 

Congratulations and much love to my dear friend. I am so proud.
