misc_none 10:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Exhibition: Love of Life and Landscape: The Art of Edward E. Nichols Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Abigail Alaniz   956-681-2800   aalaniz@theimasonline.com
   

Edward Edson Nichols was a professor of art at the University of Texas Pan American (now UTRGV) for 33 years, retiring from teaching in 1999. During those decades, dozens of artists passed through his classrooms, benefiting from his teaching as well as from his generous, kind nature. Nichols loved south Texas, and his art work celebrates the beautiful landscapes and traditions of the Rio Grande Valley and Mexico. Adept in many media, his watercolors and gouache paintings are perhaps his most well-known, but he also worked in acrylic, printmaking and collage.

As part of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the International Museum of Art & Science, the exhibition Love of Life and Landscape: The Art of E.E. Nichols commemorates the major contribution the artist made during his life to the culture of his home town. Working with his family and local collections, the exhibition represents a retrospective of the broad range of his art, from the landscapes of the citrus groves around his studio, to the Mexican festivals he witnessed on his travels.

Nichols passed away in 2016; he left behind a fond record of the beauty he saw around him. His broad range of interests, from landscape to Mexican folk art, abstract expressionism and biblical themes were all expressed through his lens of thoughtful spiritualism: “Painting to me is about being very quiet and centered and then waiting to see what is revealed through drawing visual thoughts and listening to hear/see the next one. My position is that each of us is a perfect spiritual reflection of an infinite Mind, infinite Love, and this is what fills us with awe and inspiration.”

    Contact: Rogelio T. Nunez   956-367-0335   
   

The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center is bringing folk singer Tish Hinojosa to San Benito, Texas on Saturday, December 16, 2017. However, the concert will be held at Getsemani Presbyterian Church.

Tickets $10.00.

Tish Hinojosa is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas. Hinojosa’s blend of folk, country, Latino, and pop has an undeniable far reaching appeal, garnering her accolades such as a White House concert at the invitation of President and Mrs. Clinton and teaming up with artists such as Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Seeger, and Dwight Yoakam.

She has recorded as an independent artist as well as for A&M, Warner Bros, and Rounder Records and has been a featured artist on Austin City Limits, A Prairie Home Companion and other NPR programs.

With sixteen CDs to her name, Tish’s distinct sound has gained her much critical acclaim. Her latest CD After The Fair, released in 2013, was recorded in Germany and is reflective of her 9 years spent in the Beatles old stomping grounds in Hamburg. Tish has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe and continues to draw a loyal and growing audience.

Sunday Speaker Series: Conjunto Music, the music of the working class

December 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Conjunto music was born in the Rio Grande Valley during the settlement and development of many towns growing along the railroads as the tracks crossed the Rio Grande Valley in the 1920s. The presentation will explain the beginnings and the evolution of conjunto music in South Texas including how it spread among the migrant field workers.  In addition, Lupe Saenz will share examples of the music as it evolved and credit those pioneers who are responsible for creating the genre, including Narciso Martinez.

During his school years in the mid-1960s, Saenz worked at KSOX 1240 AM. In 1998, after many decades in public education at Weslaco ISD and Donna ISD, he founded the South Texas Conjunto Association. Since then, he’s written, produced and directed conjunto culture documentaries and television shows. Saenz currently lives in Weslaco.

Sunday Speakers Series is included in the fee for regular museum admission. FRIENDS of the Museum are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created at the museum by her family to honor her memory and to continue her commitment to providing opportunities for education to the community.

It’s a gingerbread wonderland at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library as the Children’s Department hosts its annual holiday festival.  The festival is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec 20, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Children in attendance will enjoy a puppet show and two musical performances by local elementary schools.

Afterward, the Truman Elementary school choir will sing holiday favorites followed by the De La Viña Elementary Orff ensemble who is sure to delight the audience with an array of instruments and holiday interpretations.

Following the performances, children can participate in an arts & craft activity where they’ll decorate their own construction paper gingerbread man. There will also be three game stations set up around the department, which include a Christmas Tree Ring-Toss, a Frosty the Snowman Snowball-Toss, and a Pin-the-Nose on Rudolph.

A gingerbread house backdrop will be on display for those wanting to capture the night in a picture with their own cameras. However, Santa Claus will also be in attendance for those who prefer a more traditional picture.

Cake, cookies, and punch will be served in the library meeting room. Children will also be able to choose a free book of their choice and will receive a goodie bag filled with all sorts of treats.
