To celebrate its much-buzzed-about $2 million overhaul, the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston tapped New York sculptor Tony Feher for its inaugural show. Nearly 400 art lovers admired the sweeping 25-year survey of the artist’s work, simply named “Tony Feher” (through March 17, 2013). Sixty VIP collectors and curators adjourned to Hiram Butler Gallery — Feher’s Texas representation — for an after-party catered by Armandos and a sneak peek at the gallery’s “Tony Feher: A Work in Four Parts” installation. Feher fans: Blaffer director and chief curator Claudia Schmuckli and parents in from Switzerland Vreni and Jack Schmuckli, Judy Nyquist, Ryan Gordon, Leslie and Mark Hull, Dean Daderko, Bill Arning, and Rob Weiner in from Marfa.
