Jill Hendrix uses wood, textiles, and pigment in her two- and three-dimensional pieces that use a ladder as a central visual element, combining architectural formality with informal elements and colors. Her pieces convey our life-long struggle to ascend above the tendency to remain stationary, while encouraging the viewer to rise above life’s plight. A native Texan with a BFA from UT Tyler, she splits her time between her studio in Lindale in East Texas, and Austin. In Gallery 3, Center for Contemporary Arts, 220 Cypress Street, September 9 - October 25. Open Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
By welding together flat steel forms and inflating them with air, Cannings creates dynamic pieces with the permanence of steel and the softer, gentler form of fabric: pillowing, folding, stretching, seemingly temporary. His sculpture captures the popularity of inflated objects in our culture, representing cheap, disposable, fleeting, and iconic fun. Originally from England, Cannings earned a BFA and MFA in the United States. He is currently a professor at Texas Tech and exhibits all over the country. In the Jane Breed Gallery at the Center for Contemporary Arts, 220 Cypress Street. Open 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, September l9 - October 25, 2014.
