The Blaffer Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition Standing In by Jamaica-born, New York-based artist Paul Anthony Smith who makes photo-based works that push back against the medium’s inherently predatory dimensions while simultaneously introducing a network of added layers to navigate.
Martinez (they/them/their) creates immersive, spellbinding paintings that explore ideas of place, climate, landscape, and personhood through unconventional methods of applying and interlaying various materials, textures, and hues on canvas. Their signature style of abstract painting features viscerally tactile and spatial atmospheres created with physical ingredients like fabric rags, recycled clothing, and crushed stone that reveal discordant visual intersections of destruction and emergence.
For over a decade, Jacolby Satterwhite has used 3D animation, sculpture, performance, painting, and photography to create fantastical, labyrinthine universes. Exploring the themes of public space, the body, ritual, and community, Satterwhite draws from an extensive set of references guided by queer theory, Modernist tropes, and video game languages to challenge conventions of Western art through a personal and political lens. An equally significant influence is his late mother, Patricia Satterwhite, who lived with schizophrenia and made ethereal vocal recordings as well as drawings and diagrams for visionary household products throughout Satterwhite’s childhood. His mother’s work often serves as the source material within a decidedly complex structure of memory and mythology.

The HPAC Personal Statement Workshop is designed to help our pre-medical and pre-dental students strengthen and develop their personal statement drafts. (Please note students should attend the Personal Statement Orientation first, write a draft, and then attend their selected workshop.) Students will need to be able to share a rough draft of their personal statement that is substantial enough to receive feedback (1/2 page, single spaced minimum) but it does not need to be full completed. RSVP is required; one RSVP per student.
Students who wish to go through HPAC evaluation in Spring 2023 must attend one HPAC Orientation, one HPAC Personal Statement Orientation, and one HPAC Personal Statement Workshop. Please be sure to sign up for one of each event, and sign in when you attend to receive credit.
If we are busy, you may not be seen during this time. The last person will be seen 15 minutes before the end of the hour. Know that you can call CAPS if you need immediate assistance 713-743-5454
Visit our Let’s Talk page to learn more.
“Let’s Talk” is a program that provides easy access to informal confidential consultations with therapists from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). Consultations are available to the entire UH community – students, staff, and faculty. Consultations are free of charge, and no appointment or paperwork is needed.
A “Let’s Talk” therapist is available on a first-come, first-served basis; usually, there is not much of a wait. Each session takes about 20 minutes. The therapist will listen closely to your concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for additional resources that may help you address your concerns.
Therapists at CAPS provide a wide range of services that can be helpful to students. One service is short-term counseling that requires a commitment to several appointments that typically last between 45-50 minutes. “Let’s Talk” is not formal counseling. It is a “drop-in” service where you will receive an informal consultation to address concerns you may have at the moment. Consultations are brief and focused, typically lasting not more than 15 – 20 minutes.
“Let’s Talk” may be beneficial to:
- Students who are not interested in short-term counseling but would like the perspective from a consultation with a professional.
- Students who have a specific problem and would like to briefly discuss the issue.
- Students who have a concern about a friend and want some guidance and support about how to address the issue.
- Faculty or staff who want to consult with a professional about an individual of concern.
A triage appointment is a formal initial assessment that helps match the student’s needs with a clinical service, such as individual or group counseling, or an essential skills workshop, each of which requires more of a time commitment from the student. It is through the triage process that a student becomes a CAPS client. “Let’s Talk” allows you to address concerns at the moment, with the help and perspective of a professional therapist, without becoming a CAPS client and committing to additional services.
Absolutely. The therapist will talk through your issue with you and help you determine the best way to get help.
