Brazos Gallery Presents “LUX” by Andrew Kochie, Through July 19

The Brazos Gallery presents “LUX” by Andrew Kochie, with the exhibit being up through July 19. In this exhibit, Andrew pushes the boundaries of refraction and light on hand-etched aluminum panels, which are balanced with works that play with shadow. “LUX” also includes QR Code technology that will reveal stories and thoughts behind the pieces.

Andrew is a Dallas-based visual artist and cultural advocate. His body of work is a synthetic blend between abstract and trompe l’oeil illusion (a flat or painted object that looks three-dimensional), ranging from abstract minimalism to hard-edge geometric abstraction. He is a pioneer in metallic trompe l’oeil. 

This summer exhibit will open with an artist talk from 11 a.m.-noon June 19 and a reception from 7-9 p.m. June 21.

Outside the Toy Box Exhibit, Through Oct. 26

 

The Richland College community is invited to the Outside the Toy Box exhibit by John Hartley in the Brazos Gallery from now until Oct. 26. This exhibit was created to show characters influenced by Hartley’s surroundings. His subjects are diverse, as are his interests. His paintings combine his two passions, making art and collecting, that link the past with the present. Common threads that binds his art are time, nostalgia for the past, recognition of former achievements and moments captured in a glance. Hartley’s aim has always been “to create intellectually and emotionally significant statements of the soul.” For more information about Hartley, visit http://www.johnhartley.net/index.html

See the exhibit from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. through Oct. 26 in Brazos Gallery. You can also listen to Hartley talk from 1-3 p.m. Oct. 17 in the Brazos Gallery.

BoeingBoeing_PosterV2

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.

 


Americana: Arts Fest 2015


We’ve been hosting Arts Fest since 2012. It’s a collaboration between different Humanities disciplines. Each year we highlight an aspect of the Humanities department. In the past we’ve had a theatre performance or a dance performance. This year we’re highlighting the visual arts with an outdoor poppy installation around Fannin Hall: The Blood of Texas Heroes. The theme this year is Americana. That’s the inspiration behind this year’s Arts Fest.
