Description Andy Warhol promoted and managed a 1960's avant-garde band named The Velvet Underground. The mylar in the background is a nod to the floating pillows made of the newly-invented stuff that made their debut at a show at Warhol's 'Factory.' There is no historical evidence that Andy wore red velvet underwear. But if he didn't, he really should have.(Original: acrylic-painted illustration board and red velvet mounted on mylar-covered canvas.)
Ann Huey, Dallas Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I am proud to be from a place where so much talent has sprouted from oil and rice fields and drainage ditches and other toxic goo—Beaumont, Texas—a shady, stinky corner of the state that shares a tendency to mildew with its close neighbor, Louisiana. Naturally, I have made idols out of the likes of big time artists John Alexander, Paul Manes, Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur), photographer Keith Carter, writer Mary Karr (Groves), dead singer Janis Joplin (Port Arthur), and a terrific wealth of other-worldly-gifted, interesting characters not famous, but just as unbalanced.
