The Pearl’s summer exhibition showcases unique holdings from the collections of the Chaney Family. Jereann Chaney, along with daughter Holland, has been a longtime advocate of the arts. She and husband Robert Chaney began collecting art in the early 1990s with a focus on younger, contemporary artists.
Their growing collection includes emerging international artists as well as Texas artists. The Chaney Family exhibition includes a range of work from over 30 artists, including large-scale sculptures and installation art.

In the Heights
Hillery Community Gallery
May 22 – July 10, 2021
In the Heights features the work of Houston artist and educator Arthur Deatly. This body of work includes plein air paintings of homes and Little Libraries in the Houston Heights neighborhood. Having embraced the genre of urban landscapes, Deatly's approach to the subject has evolved from panoramas to more intimate portraits of buildings and the neighborhoods they reside in. From street views to alleyways, he wants the viewer to feel the splendor of the day he felt while painting.
