BakerRipley Neighborhood Tax Centers
Ongoing through Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Beginning this month, families and individuals earning up to $58,000 can visit any of BakerRipley's free tax preparation sites open this month for quality tax preparation services at no cost, including electronic filing (e-filing) and direct deposit. IRS-certified tax preparers can be found at 12 sites around the Greater Houston Area and Montgomery County to help taxpayers avoid paying fees, predatory practices and high interest refund advance loans all while making sure the client's tax return is prepared correctly. For low and moderate-income families their tax refunds can amount to 10-40% of their annual income. This is a meaningful boost that can help set families on the path to financial stability. BakerRipley is an IRS VITA program under United Way THRIVE which focuses on helping families establish a path to financial stability. More than 62,000 families last year achieved financial success through United Way THRIVE, with over 35,000 tax returns completed.

Archway Gallery presents There is Another Garden
Archway Gallery
2305 Dunlavy
Houston, TX 77006
Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 5 – 8 p.m.

Archway Gallery presents There is Another Garden

Archway Gallery presents There Is Another Garden, featuring new paintings/mixed media by Sherry Tseng Hill and mosaics by Nathan Hill, on view February 1 – March 5, 2020. The artists will be at the opening reception to visit with guests on Saturday, February 1, from 5 – 8 p.m., and will discuss the exhibition in a talk at 6:30 p.m. The artists will host a mosaic demonstration on Sunday, February 9, from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. and a performance by Traveler on Saturday, February 22, at 7 p.m.

Observing that the plant world is much like the human world, embodying the duality of both opposition and contradiction, as well as balance and harmony, artists Sherry Tseng Hill and Nathan Hill investigate the nature of this duality in their works for this exhibition.

Using mosaic tile, as well as paper, paint, and other materials, each artist explores the possibilities of realism versus abstraction, of the cells that make up the whole, and of the underlying mathematical patterns. The result is a revelation that There is Another Garden, one that can seem both beautiful and strange.
