LIZ CONCES SPENCER
Painting, Drawing and Fused Glass
Liz Conces Spencer grew up in the refinery town of Pasadena, Texas and earned a BA in Art at the University of St. Thomas in 1975. Intrigued by the visual tangle of urban life, she began what would become a lifetime study of figures and patterned landscapes, a reflection which has crossed visual media lines.
A Winant Clayton Volunteer in 1975, Conces developed an art program for underprivileged children in London. She taught at St. Thomas High School and Incarnate Word Academy, and is currently a teaching artist with Young Audiences of Houston.
Freelance design work led to her internationally marketed line of infant soft goods in the 1980s. In addition to her own designs, she oversaw the art direction of licensed products for Gerber Childrenswear, Binky, Crayola and the World Wildlife Fund.
Her exhibition history began in 1976. Since 2005, she has shown her gallery work at the cooperative Archway in Houston.
She completed commissions for the UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Camp Aranzazu, Silver Eagle Distributors, Cool Globes, Houston Arts Alliance, Talento Bilingue, Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer Center, Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism, the Kroger Company and individual clients. She is completing a chapel project for the Catholic Archdiocese of Galveston/Houston.
