At Process & Practice, a gathering for visual artists of all media, we will come together for the sake of community, discussion, and growth. Visual artists and art lovers are invited to join us as we hear from 4 visual artists for 5 minutes each. After the presentations, there will be a facilitated panel and interaction with all of the presenting artists about their projects, passions, and creative vision. There are few experiences better than connecting over great art and conversations with like-minded individuals. Following the presentations and interviews, the room will open up to seeing and meeting old and new friends and further conversation.
The four featured artists are Glen Gauthier (mixed media/collage), Kelly Clemons (porcelain and installation artist), Letitia Huckaby (mixed media photography), and Micheal Rowley (filmmaker). Read more about their backgrounds and bios below.
We hope you will join us as we make new friends, discuss current projects, and discover collaborative opportunities.

Guest Artist Bios
Glen Gauthier co-owns Street Fair Studios, a company he and his wife Stacy formed while dreaming on a mountainside in Telluride one summer. He chose the name Street Fair because he believe that the business of advertising, or its more fashionable names (communications, branding, digital, social, experiential, VR, AR...) should be an experience that makes you feel something. Like the feeling you get when you ride that ferris wheel or tilt-a-whirl. Not a list of product attributes, but a true, interesting story about your product or brand. Something that makes it stand out from the crowd. He has had the privilege over the past few decades—as a designer, art director, and creative director—to create work that he is proud of, and that has moved the needle for his clients and their businesses. He has worked for both large ad agencies and smaller branding firms, with the common thread of creating memorable, strategically sound work that resonates with audiences.
Letitia Huckaby studied and holds degrees in both journalism and photography. With the loss of my father, she became interested in doing more personal work. She turned the camera on herself, and her family. The results have been an exploration of her own family history and her African American heritage. Also the change in perspective caused her to shift from the life of a photojournalist to a more impassioned contemporary artist interested in personal expression, history and culture. The basic premise behind her work is faith, family, and legacy. It is a time capsule for the African-American experience. She is married to artist Sedrick Huckaby and resides in Benbrook, TX with our three children.
Micheal Rowley is an emerging documentary filmmaker who has worked in the commercial film industry for nearly a decade. Founding the film production company Fold Studios in 2012, Rowley has demonstrated the ability to apply his technical skill and honest approach to transform challenging subject matter into impactful narratives. The result has been partnerships with NGO’s focused on conflict resolution, Grammy-Nominated artists and human rights organizations with international impact. Rowley’s documentary feature directorial debut, Hurdle (2019), was the recipient of Austin Film Society’s North Texas Pioneer Film Grant and a winner of the American Documentary Film Festival Pitch Competition. Hurdle enjoyed its world premiere at the 2019 Dallas International Film Festival where it received a nomination for Best Documentary Feature Film and is currently continuing to engage and inspire audiences at screenings around the world.
Kelly Clemons is a Dallas-based artist who was raised in the small town of Prosper, Texas. While attaining her BA in Literature and Theater from Texas Tech University, Kelly discovered a small and quaint studio on the outskirts of Lubbock where she learned the beauty and power of clay. Many years and a husand and child later, she returned to clay and found herself working solely with the beautiful yet fickle medium of porcelain. She is extremely grateful for the daily lessons of patience and humility that come with being a full-time artist, and she looks back on that tiny, old-world studio in Lubbock with immense gratitude and reverence.
