galleryHOMELAND and HOMEcore is pleased to present Mark Ponder for his first solo show in Houston Texas. Ponder explores and dives deeper into the darkness of the Taboo. With many of the topics shadowed by dark associations, the works are twisted and tweeked to become a playful and colorful reimaginations of the subject matter. Through the works and the ideas formed from them, the matter of “Belief” springs forward as a leading theme in the works. Ponder reveals moments of his inner head space and give the viewer glimpses of his matrix of god, sex, joy, and death.

Scratch::A Culinary Bake Sale

A Food Lovers Benefit for galleryHOMELAND
at galleryHOMELAND and NUU Creative Agency
November is a time for cooler weather transition here in Houston. The last remnants of summer have disappeared and we begin to prepare ourselves for the fresh weather and holidays ahead. Suddenly we have an excuse to stay in and watch some TV show we are obsessed with, read a few books, catch up with friends over good food and BAKE. Yes Houstonians bake, so let’s have a bake sale! A great contemporary twist on “ the Bake Sale” galleryHOMELAND would like to invite you to participate in a very nostalgic sort of benefit. Remember bake sales from high school and community gatherings? This however is not an adolescent affair; this is our community doing what it does best, food. Scratch is a food lovers event and perfect for the Holiday Guest. This will be galleryHOMELAND’s Third go at this widely successful event.
Phoenicia Specialty Foods, Cat Lee ( T&A Kitchen ), Matthew Tobar ( Southern Goods ), Tout Suite, Ann Marie Tcholakian, and many many of Houston’s Finest!
galleryHOMELAND Turns 10 Years Old!
Today galleryHOMELAND is 10 years old! For a decade galleryHOMELAND has blazed its own trail with its staff making great sacrifices to keep our programming strong and relevant. We’ve traveled the globe, cross pollinated, and championed our local heroes. On this day 10 years ago me and Paige Saez talked of changes to be made in the arts. We agreed to do it and start galleryHOMELAND. With a mid day cheers of an ice cream cone we made it so. So many people to thank! All of my staff of present and past, my boards, all of our artists, collaborators, awesome mayors, civic leaders, significant others, and all our lovely friends…THANK YOU! At the end of this summer we are sad to say we will be closing our Portland location in the Historic Ford Building. We will be sad to not have our HQ there but will still remain as a curatorial element. PDX has our heart always. I tear as I write this for I’m filled with so much love for what we have done and will continue to do. I tear up for I could not in any way done this without your endless support and love. Our love for Portland and Houston will forever be deeply embedded within us. I love you and galleryHOMELAND loves you. An endless thank you to you all.
