Every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. during exhibitions, CentralTrak hosts regular open hours in the exhibition space. This Saturday was not only the last week of Christopher Blay's installation exhibition, "Satellites;" it was also the DADA gallery walk. So, we had a lively afternoon.

Most lively of all, we kicked off the afternoon with coffee and a crescent of CentralTrak's signature white plastic chairs. The residents (plus my dad) gathered 'round to talk about what we we're making and share insights. As we meandered near and far from discussing the wood sculpture and 3D Google SketchUp renders that I showed, we covered…

Yesterday I took a trip down to Houston to see the Art Fair. There was some good and some bad, but overall it was a shotgun array of art like you would expect. I had a method planned out to research the artists I was interested in. I had a handful of favorites that I took snapshots of, along with the title card in order to look up later.

In conversation with CentralTrak’s director, Heyd Fontenot, Blay explains his practice and his influences in his own words:

Q:  You spoke of watching Sci-Fi films and being having your aesthetic influenced by this genre'.

Yes. There’s a certain optimism in science fiction that I connect with. Even in tales of dystopia. At some level the world is a better place, for some. My particular interest is the post war/cold war era. (Alphaville, Dr. Strangelove, and of course Star Trek, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and the list goes on). I like the problem solving that set designers attempted back then. Knobs…

On Thursday, March 20th CentralTrak artist-in-residence Jeff Gibbon's will introduce a conversation between Bruce Lee Webb and Kimberly Alexander, two creatives who have a common interest in the practice of Vodou. The spiritual practice of Vodou and the art practice can both imbue objects with great power and meaning. Special guest Bruce Webb has studied occult practices and their relationship to fraternal orders’ ritual, performance and visual art. He has co-authored a book on the subject to be released by University of Texas Press in 2015. The conversation will be followed by a short question and answer session.
