Otis Huband: Recent Work

Valley House Gallery is honored to present our first exhibition for Houston artist Otis Huband. After a hiatus of over 20 years from regular exhibitions, his work was re-introduced to the art community in 2010 with a 50-year retrospective organized by Bill Reaves. Born in 1933 and reared in Virginia, Huband began his formal art education after 4 years in the Navy. He earned his BFA and MFA at Richmond Professional Institute of the College of William & Mary, now Virginia Commonwealth University. His study of art had just begun. Two years later, Otis and his wife Anne Hite Owen headed off on a freighter to Italy where he studied painting and sculpture at Academia di Belli Arti in Perugia. They made Houston their home when they returned to the US in 1965. Otis taught at the Houston Museum School of Fine Arts and the Art League of Houston for many years, retiring in 1982. Otis works in the studio daily, beginning at his desk in the morning to find inspiration using collage and drawing although Huband states, a painting is begun with no prior plans or ideas, but rather to find out what will reveal itself once I am involved with it. Inspiration also comes from two yearly trips to Italy and France. About his work, Huband states, I am a full-time artist who works from the inside out rather than from the outside in. I do not try to duplicate reality, but to interpret what I see and create a separate, new and personal reality.
