Work by Felice House and Dana Younger

Join the artists for an opening reception
March 9, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Felice House is a figurative painter who strives, through her portrayals of women, to provide a counterpoint to the passive female representations found in art historical tradition. She has a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, an MS in computer graphics from the Visualization Laboratory at Texas A&M University and an MFA in painting from the University of Texas. In between her other schooling, House spent time studying classical painting and portraiture at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore, MD. She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, sculptor, Dana Younger and her two-step sons Jasper and Wiley. She is an Assistant Professor in the Visualization Department at Texas A&M University.


Dana Younger is a process fanatic. He uses a wide variety of sculptural mediums to call attention to cultural heritage that warrants reexamination. Humor, beauty and biting commentary combine in his work and invite the viewer to take another look. Younger earned a BA in Theater from the University of Texas at Austin. His experiences in the theater, including acting, directing and prop making, all culminated in an interest in art fabrication and business. With more than 25 years in sculpture fabrication, He has handled a vast array of materials used in fabrication. This experience, along with his love of theatricality, comes to play in his work. Currently, Younger is a partner producing an annual holiday art show and a manager of artists, designers and fabricators for Texas Parks and Wildlife.


McCormick Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. and on Fridays, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.
