A brief description of the DoV-Z ROBOTT performances in citations for Alernative Art in Houston (go to the 1980's), cited under 1981. Individual ROBOTT detailing data and images on this website.
The finest webzine for tha visual arts in Texas. This is the earliest, covering all "current" genere factions. Nationally, this is a paradigm WebSite for visual arts coverage. Thank you, RAINEY. The reviews are incredibly balanced and most in street-art-speak. Good relevant images that often actually have scale indicated! Info posting of all legitimate visual art venues, commercial and non-profit, are posted as the calendar dictates, seemingly a 24/7/365 effort. You will love the writers, editors and those doubling as curators. Sometimes outrageous and most often on-target subjective perspectives. The updated LISTINGS are certainly to be commended. Often very good visuals.
This Quarterly webzine is an ongoing contemporary art series of conversations, interviews, essays and intelligently probing discernments/judgements written and edited by the artist STACEY HOLZER, covering both the Houston art scene as a base and wonderful national comparative examples. Excellent visuals.
This is the host for THIS website. ARTISTS, if you like what you see, visit this site, contacting VAN STOKES. He is very helpful, and the price is right while allowing you great freedom in setting up your own website. Very instructive guides and templates for all levels of Internet sophistication.
Over the plate,
Mistakenly I am shown as "Hj" instead of "HJ (aka Harvey) BOTT"
The usual social networking time-sponge, but fun. Less formal than this website and maybe a bit more personal at times.
I run VERY hot and cold updating Facebook.

9@59@9 Gang honored at DiverseWorks "Fire Sale Gala"
A peek of the 59ers being honored by Diverse Works:artists H.J. Bott, Jack Boynton, Andy Feehan, David Gray, Don Redmond, Earl Staley, Richard Stout; art historian, Bill Camfield and art patron, Barry Rose that meet at the 59 Diner, Houston, on Friday mornings at 9 am. 5-25-10: by this date, Jack has passed away at 82; Andy has moved his family to France, teaching English and painting; Don has moved to Santa Fe, doing heroic scale sculpture commissions across the country and Barry comes in from his retirement about once/mo from Oxford, Mississippi. The 59ers dialectically solve most of the world's problems with avalanches of email and letter writing activism concurrently policing the visual arts from coast to coast and Europe. Richard is our venerate traveler, keeping us apprised of exhibitions afar, painting, sculpting and exhibiting. Bill, normally traveling to Paris quite extensively for his Picabia research, is readying himself for knee surgery & an extended rehabilitation after his exploits "from" a ladder. Earl continues teaching at Lone Star College, painting in his classes and curating exhibitions. David continues his UFO research, amassing detailed political knowledge and painting.
The LAURENT BOCCARA FOUNDATION
An extraordinary exploration into this late painter's ephemeral-minimalist work. This is the gateway to acquire these meticulous paintings, drawings, collages and watercolors from the Foundation.

This was a combination website, webzine and personal blog. Lester Marks had a related column in "artHouston" magazine and on the webzine. This site is being archived by Stacey Holtzer for << VISUALSEEN.com >> and is replacing this "NING" website as the "host" contracted time runs out.
