Gemstone Carvings: The Masterworks of Harold Van Pelt
For over 35 years, Harold Van Pelt has quietly been perfecting the art of carving quartz, rock crystal and agate gemstones. Working the stone down to paper-thin walls brings out the gorgeous natural quality and colors of the agate and gives quartz the transparency of glass. Transformed by one man’s vision and skill from a solid stone to an incredibly delicate work of art, the gemstone carvings of Harold Van Pelt have to be seen to be believed.

Open through September 14, 2014
The first major exhibition in the United States devoted to 19th-century French artist Charles Marville explores the beauty, variety, and historical poignancy of his art. Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris features nearly 100 photographs that span Marville's entire career.

Soto: The Houston Penetrable
Open through September 1, 2014
Jesús Rafael Soto’s signature Penetrables series is one of the great marvels of contemporary art. The Houston Penetrable—the Venezuelan artist’s final, and most ambitious work—is the only one Soto (1923–2005) designed as permanent or semipermanent, and one of the few he created as an indoor piece. A vast, floating sea of plastic strands suspended from the ceiling, the Houston Penetrable is completed only by the viewer’s participation. Intended to be touched, handled, and waded through, the strands compose a floating yellow orb on a transparent background. The 24,000 PVC (polyvinyl chloride) tubes, individually hand-painted and tied, hang two stories high from the ceiling to the floor in the Museum's Cullinan Hall. This immersive, kinetic environment was designed by Soto on commission from the Museum in 2004 and has taken almost a decade to produce.
