About the Show
HABA is going to have a very fine first exhibit of its members work at the Houston Center of Contemporary Craft on February 11 through March 7, 2004. The breadth of work on exhibit ranges from the basic to the advanced. Seventeen HABA members, twelve from the Houston area and five from around Texas and Louisiana, submitted a total of fifty eight individual pieces of work for consideration in HABA’s first public exhibition. Thirty four pieces were accepted for exhibit.
Each member who submitted work has at least one piece in the show. Here is a list of HABA members and the titles of their accepted work.
Here are some photos taken and captioned by Dave Koenig when the show was set up.
