Prints and Ceramics from Little Egypt Enterprises and Related Studios

September 6 – November 17, 2019

Leslie and Brad Bucher Gallery, The Glassell School of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

In the 1970s and 80s, the expertise and equipment supplied by master printer David Folkman and his colleagues at the Little Egypt Enterprises print shop provided a transformative opportunity for Houston’s artists to explore the medium during a period of rediscovery and reinvention. Decades later, Little Egypt’s collected output is deserving of greater recognition as one of the city’s most significant, imaginative, and longstanding collaborative art projects. This exhibition presents lithographs, serigraphs, etchings, and ceramics produced by Little Egypt Enterprises (1972-1989) and its descendants, the Cerling Etching Studio (1990-2004) and Tembo/Cerling Collaborative Studio (1999-2002).

Opening reception: September 6, 6 to 8 p.m. Panel discussion: October 6, 1 to 3 pm.

I worked at LittleEgypt enterprises 1984 to 86 with some people that have influenced my Art making process and my life. I am very honored to be part of this show and part of the history of the Arts in Houston.
