O’Quinn Gallery
Essay by Betsy Huete

In this solo presentation by Sterling Allen, the Austin-based artist creates a site-specific sculpture-based installation that activates sight lines, architectural relationships, hanging conventions, and spatial connections, all while celebrating pop, the handmade, function, failure and the cheap illusion.

Sterling Allen holds an MFA in Sculpture from the Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts at Bard College and a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas in Austin. He is a co-founder and co-director of Okay Mountain, an artist collective and former gallery based in Austin, Texas.

As a solo artist and in collaboration with the group, he has exhibited, organized, and completed projects at venues throughout the United States and received several residencies including the Artpace International Artist-In-Residence Program in San Antonio, Texas and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha, Nebraska. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Studio Art at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.

Katherine Trimble: Touch Box
September 22 – October 22, 2017
Project Space

When does a sound become music? When does language break down into sound? What happens to live music if you can’t see the performer? Houston-based artist and musician, Katherine Trimble asks her audience to contemplate the breakdown of sounds in an immersive site-specific installation entitled Touch Box.
