 “Movement” New work by Artist Jessica Monroe.

Janurary 10 – May 29, 2015

 

Opening Reception:

March 5, 2015

5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

 

Hosted by Texas State Technical College, Learning Resource Center, 1902 N. Loop 499, Harlingen, TX 78550. 

“Movement” is an art exhibit that celebrates the natural world, by artist Jessica Monroe. Influenced by childhood memories of many long hours spent outdoors, Monroe’s paintings embrace the idea that observing nature offers an opportunity to reflect and better understand our self.  Though based in realism, her work celebrates abstractions found in the chaotic interconnected network fundamental to all life.  With her art, she explores beauty in the grace of growth and decay, and in the energy of light and constant movement. 

Born in 1983 in McAllen Texas, Monroe holds a Bachelor of Arts from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, and has studied painting at New York University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  For over fifteen years, Monroe has exhibited her work throughout Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, and has taught art to students of all ages.  She lives with her husband, Daniel Martinez, and works in her home studio in Edinburg, Texas.  When not in the studio, Monroe spends much of her time painting at birding and nature centers across the Rio Grande Valley.  www.JessicaMonroe.com

Harlingen, TX – January 15, 2015
The Beyond Arts Gallery is proud to present “Dreams, Hope, and Magic” By Puente

An exhibition of large scale surrealistic paintings.

Puente's works have a strange beauty that pulls the viewer, almost forcing him or her to stare deep into the canvas as if trying to find an excuse and an answer for the scene that unfolds. The paintings tell a story, they give warning, or make us reflect and sometimes… sometimes for that single instant, we dream and hope for magic.

“Dreams, Hope, and Magic” will run from January 15, 2015 – March 7, 2015 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 15th from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

South Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery presents “Conceptualization, Expression and Feelings,” an exhibit featuring artworks by Irma Garza-Garcia. The exhibit opens Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015 with an artist talk at 6 p.m., and will be on view through Friday, May 15. The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

A native of Monterrey, Mexico, Garza-Garcia enrolled in the Art Instruction School based in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2009. She also attended intensive workshops in Mexico City with a well-known professor in the art field, Dr. Alberto Angel Bustillos. Garza-Garcia has had exhibitions along the Rio Grande Valley as well as international exhibits in London and Rome.

Garza-Garcia enjoys working in vibrant colors and high contrast. In her artwork she strives to depict someone’s inner workings, or soul, through outward bodily expressions. Garza-Garcia’s work also explores feelings and issues of identity.

“Garza-Garcia demonstrates great skill in her chosen medium,” said South Texas College Librarian Lillian Carrillo. “The personable expressions and gestures that she depicts are sure to appeal to a wide audience.”

misc_none 8:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Journey Stories, a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Virginia Haynie Gause   956-665-2303   vgause@utpa.edu
   

Journey Stories, a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution will open February 17, 2015 at UTPA Library. It will be on display in the Shary Room through March 27th. The exhibit will be open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. UTPA is one of only six places in Texas that the exhibit will travel to this year and UTPA was able to schedule it to coincide with FESTIBA 2015.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held February 17 from 4-6 p.m.

The theme of the exhibit is immigration, migration, and transportation. For a quick glance at what the exhibit is about take a look at this short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajGkdarLzjY

The Library hopes the exhibit inspires viewers to think about how they and their ancestors first came to South Texas. Recent immigrants may have come by automobile, bus, or plane. However, in the past, they may have arrived by railroad, wagon train, or boat. When thinking about these journeys, some may wonder:  What essentials did the traveler pack for the journey? Did they travel from another country? What obstacles did they encounter along the way?

The Library hopes the exhibit will inspire students to incorporate projects connected to journey topics, whether the students are in history, art, literature, creative writing, music, or other coursework.

In conjunction with “Journey Stories,” the library is hosting a speaker series. Several faculty members and local historians will make presentations while the exhibit is here:
• Feb. 17, 6-8 p.m. UTPA Ballroom. Book Launch for "Living the Dream: New Immigration Policies and the Lives of Undocumented Latino Youth," Dr. Jessica L. Lavariega Monforti
• Feb. 19, noon-1 p.m. Schilling Room (Library 2.101). “We Were Here First: Early Indians of the Rio Grande Valley,” Dr. Russell Skowronek
• March 10, noon-1 p.m. Schilling Room (Library 2.101). “Orphan Trains,”  Dorothy Lund Nelson
• March 12, noon-1 p.m. Schilling Room (Library 2.101). “Poems About Travel,”  Emmy Perez
• March 24, noon-1 p.m. Schilling Room (Library 2.101). “Travel Writing:  Sharing Your Journey Stories with Others,” Dr. Phil Zwerling
• March 26, noon-1 p.m. Schilling Room (Library 2.101). “Songs About Travel,”  Dr. Andrés Amado

Journey Stories has been made possible at UTPA by the Texas State Historical Association. The exhibit is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

The University Library at UT Brownsville cordially invites you to come join us for the photograph exhibit, “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy”. An exhibition created in the early 1970’s, when noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity- to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways.  Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse’s back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition.

The exhibition features photographs with bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.

 As part of the program, there will be three Humanities Scholars presenting the following topics:
"Women of the Vaquero Tradition” - Dr. Diana V. Dominguez
University Library Reading Room 2.202

We hope you will join us for these educational events where our library will have the opportunity to present this exhibit in order to fully educate and inform our university and local community on the history and culture of the vaquero.

misc_none 3:00 PM The Chisholm Trail by Pharr Community Theater Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Elva Michal    956-648-2488   elvamichal@gmail.com
   

After the premiere of “Frontera Sin Fin” and “Pat & Lyndon” last year, The Pharr Community Theater is performing its newest play, “The Chisholm Trail”.
 
The western takes place in the post-Civil War Rio Grande Valley as vaqueros, cowboys, and cowgirls attempt to make their living herding cattle to Kansas. “It’s an exciting historical western with an epic cattle drive, adventure, comedy, romance and a gripping gunfight,” said Artistic Director Pedro Garcia. “Along the journey they encounter rough river crossings and bandits. Eventually they comes to terms with the senseless civilian and soldier casualties lost during the Civil War and with the displaced Native Americans caught amid U.S. Expansion.”
 
David Cid, a Theater Arts graduate of Weslaco High and Prairie View University directs 13 local actors in the production. “David is a very passionate director and wants to tell the story as authentically as possible,” said Garcia.
 
Pharr playwright Romeo Rosales, Jr. wrote the play after doing historical research on the Chisholm Trail and watching the AMC show “Hell on Wheels” as an inspiration to structure the story. “Seeing the script come to life is surreal. This is the first play I have ever written and knowing people can judge you and critique you negatively for any reason is kind of scary. But, to quote one of my heroes, Louis Pasteur, ‘Chance favors the prepared mind.’ That’s the motto I live by.”
 
Araceli Casares doubles as both “Big Mouth Henri” and the stage manager of the production. “Initially the role of ‘Big Mouth’ was created for a male but not enough actors turned up for the audition, [David] thought I’d be a good Henry so I got the part. I love acting, it allows me to transform myself into someone else for that time,” she said.
 
Casares performs onstage alongside Pharr Community Theater actors Ivan Orozco, Francisco Crisanto, Heriberto Leal, Gracie Gonzalez, Eric Reyna, Juan Guerra, David Ecklund, Genaro Escobedo and Daniela Ramos.
 
The play opens February 12 at 7:00 pm at Donna High School, 1/4 mile Eastwood Ave, (admission to this show will be free but donations as little as a dollar will be accepted at the door). On February 14, a mini-skit of the show will be performed at the annual Chisholm Trail Festival at Donna City Park. The play will then return to Pharr for its regular run of eight shows from February 19 through March 1st. Showtimes are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm at the Carnahan Elementary Auditorium, 317 W Gore Street, Pharr, Texas.
 
Tickets are only $7.00 general admission and $5.00 for anyone 18 and younger. Tickets will be sold at the door one hour before each show or in advance by calling 956-648-2488 or 956-655-9308.

Imagine being a woman, dressed as a man fighting in the Civil War.  This March 4th during Women’s History Month, you will be able to get insight into four women’s lives during the American Civil War when New York Times bestselling author Karen Abbott visits the South Texas College Libraries.

During her visit, Abbott will explore the spellbinding true stories of four very different women – a socialite, a farm girl, an abolitionist, and a widow – who took on the responsibility of soldiers and spies.  Her book Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War has received many accolades with many noting Abbott’s pulse-quickening narrative as well as praise for her wealth of primary source materials.  It has been named a best book of 2014 by Library Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Amazon, and Flavorwire, and has been optioned by SONY for a miniseries.

Abbott will visit two of South Texas College’s campuses on March 4th.  At 1:00 pm, Abbott will visit the MidValley Campus Auditorium, and at 6:00 pm, she will visit the Pecan Campus Library.  Following her discussion, there will be an opportunity to purchase the book and have the author sign it.

Abbott’s previous books include Sin in the Second City and American Rose which were both New York Times Best sellers.  She is a featured contributor to Smithsonian Magazine and also writes for the New York Times series about the Civil War.  A native of Philadelphia, where she worked as a journalist, she now lives in New York City where she is at work on her next book.

Abbott’s visit coincides with the South Texas College Library’s commemoration of Women’s History Month.  Other events throughout the month will include lectures, movies, and book displays. 

For more information on these events please contact Esther Garcia at (956) 872-6485 or egarcia10@southtexascollege.edu or visit http://library.southtexascollege.edu/libraryevents.  All events are free and open to the community.

 “Movement” New work by Artist Jessica Monroe.

Janurary 10 – May 29, 2015

 

Opening Reception:

March 5, 2015

5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

 

Hosted by Texas State Technical College, Learning Resource Center, 1902 N. Loop 499, Harlingen, TX 78550. 

“Movement” is an art exhibit that celebrates the natural world, by artist Jessica Monroe. Influenced by childhood memories of many long hours spent outdoors, Monroe’s paintings embrace the idea that observing nature offers an opportunity to reflect and better understand our self.  Though based in realism, her work celebrates abstractions found in the chaotic interconnected network fundamental to all life.  With her art, she explores beauty in the grace of growth and decay, and in the energy of light and constant movement. 

Born in 1983 in McAllen Texas, Monroe holds a Bachelor of Arts from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, and has studied painting at New York University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  For over fifteen years, Monroe has exhibited her work throughout Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, and has taught art to students of all ages.  She lives with her husband, Daniel Martinez, and works in her home studio in Edinburg, Texas.  When not in the studio, Monroe spends much of her time painting at birding and nature centers across the Rio Grande Valley.  www.JessicaMonroe.com

WHAT: WOMEN'S VOICES

WHEN: MARCH 14TH

WHERE: NMCAC

               225 E. STENGER, SAN BENITO

The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center’s Writers’ Forum is proud to sponsor “Women’s Voices” March 14, 2015, as part of International Women’s Month.

The event will feature two area writers, each will perform a one woman act play from their original work.  There will also be an art exhibit by women artists from the University of Texas Brownsville.

La Primera Voz Que Oi/The First Voice I Heard by Brenda Nettles Riojas
By incorporating some of the poems in her book by the same title, the play/monologue will address memory; voices that stay with you, the imprint of a mother who births you; the voice that echoes in your DNA and shapes you; the journey of finding your own voice; and the struggle to learn how to speak up in a world that sometimes prefers you stay silent.

Brenda is the Diocesan Relations Director for the Diocese of Brownsville, where she also serves as the editor of the Valley Catholic newspaper.  She is also the host of “Corazon Bilingue,” a weekly radio program that addresses the dynamics of language and culture and how it impacts writing.
She authored a book about the history of the Catholic Church in the Rio Grande Valley in 2002.  Her first collection of Poetry title “La Primera Voz Que Oi” was published in 2009.  She co-edited “Writing to Be Heard/Escuchame: Voices from the Chicho” with Alan Oak, which was released by Otras Voces Publishing in June 2011.
Brenda earned her M.F. A. in creative writing through the University of New Orleans.

Otra Esa on the Public Transit – created by and starting Amalia Ortiz
Otra Esa on the Public Transit is a unique play about destination and destiny. You follow Amalia’s adventures on the city streets and using the public bus system in San Antonio.  The play was commissioned by and premiered at Talento Bilingue de Houston in 2005. It opened TeatroFest at the Guadalupe Theater and was also produced at Northwest Vista College in San Antonio.

Amalia, Tejana poet and playwright, appeared on three seasons of Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry on HBO. She was awarded the Alfredo Cisneros Del Moral Foundation Grant from Sandra Cisneros and writing residency at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.  She is CantoMundo Fellow; a Hedgebrook writer-in-residence alumna; and an MFA student in creative writing at the University of Texas Pan American.  Wings Press will publish her first collection of poetry in 2015.

The event will start at 6:30 with refreshments and art exhibit.  The plays will start at 7:00 to 8:30 with an intermission.  After the plays hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served with an opportunity to meet the playwrights and artists.

Suggested donation - $5.00.

    Contact: Millie Hernandez   956-882-8221   Milagro.Hernadez@utb.edu
   

The University Library at UT Brownsville cordially invites you to come join us for the photograph exhibit, “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy”. An exhibition created in the early 1970’s, when noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity- to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways.  Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse’s back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition.

The exhibition features photographs with bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.

 As part of the program, there will be three Humanities Scholars presenting the following topics:

"Women of the Vaquero Tradition” - Dr. Diana V. Dominguez
University Library Reading Room 2.202
Wednesday, March 4, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

"Origins of Tejanos and Vaqueros" - Dr. Antonio N.  Zavaleta
Main (Formerly EDBC) Salon Cassia 2.402
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

"The Vaquero and the South Texas Rancho" - Dr. Manuel F. Medrano
Main (Formerly EDBC) Salon Cassia 2.402
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

We hope you will join us for these educational events where our library will have the opportunity to present this exhibit in order to fully educate and inform our university and local community on the history and culture of the vaquero.

The Vaquero exhibit will be available to the public from March 1, 2015 to April 30, 2015.

This exhibition, Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy is created by the Wittliff Collections at the Alkek Library, Texas State University-San Marcos, presented in partnership with Humanities Texas, the state affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities. This exhibition is made possible in part by a We the People grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

For more information, contact Millie Hernandez at 956-882-8221 or via email at Milagro.Hernadez@utb.edu.

The GAC is an annual community effort to banish litter and trash from our parks, schools, streets, and sidewalks.  Every year we pull together from across our Valley community and hold a giant service event that packs up and bags literally tons of trash and removes it from our public spaces.This event is a chance to give back to the community you love and to make it cleaner, better looking, healthier, and safer.  (We're serious!  Did you know litter creates crime?  And that where there is less litter and trash, people tend to be healthier?)

Interested yet?  What if we told you we'll feed you lunch, cover your transportation from Municipal Park to the clean-up zones, and give you a free T-shirt?  Oh, and we'll probably have door prizes too.

Sound cool?

Here's the info:

The University Library at UT Brownsville cordially invites you to come join us for the photograph exhibit, “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy”. An exhibition created in the early 1970’s, when noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity- to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways.  Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse’s back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition.

The exhibition features photographs with bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.

 As part of the program, there will be three Humanities Scholars presenting the following topics:

"Women of the Vaquero Tradition” - Dr. Diana V. Dominguez
University Library Reading Room 2.202
Wednesday, March 4, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

"Origins of Tejanos and Vaqueros" - Dr. Antonio N.  Zavaleta
Main (Formerly EDBC) Salon Cassia 2.402
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

"The Vaquero and the South Texas Rancho" - Dr. Manuel F. Medrano
Main (Formerly EDBC) Salon Cassia 2.402
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
6:30pm - 7:30pm

We hope you will join us for these educational events where our library will have the opportunity to present this exhibit in order to fully educate and inform our university and local community on the history and culture of the vaquero.

The Vaquero exhibit will be available to the public from March 1, 2015 to April 30, 2015.

This exhibition, Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy is created by the Wittliff Collections at the Alkek Library, Texas State University-San Marcos, presented in partnership with Humanities Texas, the state affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities. This exhibition is made possible in part by a We the People grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
