Jung Center of Houston presents the exhibitions Jim Adams: Scrap Iron and David Habercom: Severance and Passion at Broken Hill. The scrap metal sculpture of Houston artist Jim Adams and the photographs of Tennessee resident David Habercom share The Jung Center Gallery space this November.Jim Adams’ mission is to find aspects of beauty or meaning in what is considered “scrap” and give it a second life as art. The mute solidity and history of unheralded service found in the rescued metal objects flows into the character of the works.David Habercom creates dramatized photographs in series and incorporates a fictional history which aims to unveil the unconscious origins of religious desire. Habercom follows the premise that art, at its best, opens onto Mystery. In conjunction with his exhibition, David will present, What Does Art Look Like When It Matters?, a lecture exploring how the best art aims to transform our understanding of life, Thursday, October 31 at 7:30 p.m.For more than 50 years, The Jung Center has served as a nonprofit resource offering dynamic and compelling classes – “continuing education for the human spirit” – on a diverse range of psychological, artistic, and intellectual topics. The Center’s building was originally designed as an art gallery and mounts approximately nine exhibits of work by both established and emerging artists each year. The Jung Center is an active member of the Houston Museum District.
