 “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

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.”

South Texas College’s Library Art Gallery Program exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.

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

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.

misc_none 12:00 PM Author Ann Estevis to speak at Edinburg Public Library Brown Bag Luncheon Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Ramon V. Vela, Jr.   (956) 607-9048   
   

Meet author Dr. Ann Estevis who will be this month’s guest speaker during the Friends of the Edinburg Public Library Brown Bag Luncheon.  Dr. Estevis will be reading excerpts from two of her books Down Garrapata Road and Chicken Foot Farm.  This special presentation will take place on Monday, April 6th, at 12 noon at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library. 

Dr. Ann Estevis is a native Texan, raised in Corpus Christi. She lived a number of years in New Mexico where she met and married a fellow educator from South Texas.  She and her husband Fransicso have lived in Edinburg for the past 40 years.  She is retired from the University of Texas-Pan American.  Recently Estevis and fellow writer Richard Sanchez established La Nopalera Press, a small independent publishing company.

Her first book, Down Garrapata Road is  set in South Texas during the 1940-50’s and includes a series of fun yet some times tender short stories that reflect the culture of the Valley during that time period.  Chicken Foot Farm, her second book, was greatly awaited by her fans, and depicted the pre-WWII’s coming of age story of Alejandro and his experiences living in a South Texas Farm.

The Friends of the Edinburg Public Library is a nonprofit organization who takes an active role in the support of the public library and its services to the community.  Mr. Ramon V. Vela Jr., President of the Friends of the Edinburg Public Library, cordially invites the public to attend this event and enjoy Dr. Estevis’ presentation.

For your convenience the Books & Bytes Café is conveniently located inside the library so avoid the long wait at the restaurant and stop by the café where you will find healthy salads and sandwiches served in just a matter of seconds by our own friendly library staff.

The program is free of charge and open to the public.  Don’t forget to get your ticket at the door for an opportunity to win one of the wonderful door prizes.

    Contact: Esther Garcia   (956)872-6485   egarcia10@southtexascollege.edu
   

Present-day smuggling across the U.S.-Mexico border is a professional, often violent, criminal activity. However, it is only the latest chapter in a history of illicit business dealings that stretches back to 1848, when attempts by Mexico and the United States to tax commerce across the Rio Grande upset local trade and caused popular resentment.

This April, Dr. George Diaz will join the South Texas College Library to discuss the first history of smuggling across the U.S.-Mexico border based on the research for his book Border Contraband: A History of Smuggling Across the Rio Grande.

Dr. Diaz will visit three of South Texas College’s campuses. On April 6th at 1:00 pm, he will visit the MidValley campus library, and at 6:00 pm, he will visit the Pecan campus library. To conclude his visit, Dr. Diaz will visit the Starr campus library on April 7th at 10:00 am. Following his discussion, there will be an opportunity to purchase his book and have the author sign it.

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.

The Valley Symphony Orchestras Presents Romantic SymphonyConcert VI at the McAllen Civic Center Auditorium

Romantic Symphony

The Valley Symphony Orchestra presents the last concert of the Major Works Series – Romantic Symphony on Thursday, April 9th at 8:00 p.m. at the McAllen Civic Center located at off of Expressway 83 and 10th Street. Throughout the season the orchestra has performed music from a variety of composers and styles including music from Russia, China, the United States, Western Europe, popular music, choral music, and holiday and classical favorites. For the last orchestral concert of the season the VSO will go back to the bread and butter of symphonic literature with classical pieces by Beethoven and Brahms preceded by Glinka’s famous overture to Ruslan and Ludmila.

Mikhail Glinka (1804-1857) was one of the first Russian composers recognized both in his homeland and internationally. At a time of growing nationalist sentiments throughout Europe, Russian nationalists were divided in two camps referred to as “Slavophiles” and “Westernizers”; the former stressed Russia’s uniqueness and the latter highlighted Russia’s cosmopolitanism. While Glinka based many works, such as his opera Ruslan and Ludmila, on Russian subjects, and even though he developed innovative approaches to represent folk and magical themes, he also embraced characteristics of the Western European styles, which made his music internationally accessible. The overture to Ruslan and Ludmila illustrates his internationalist traits. Its energy and lyricism--that use traditional idioms from the Classical and Romantic movements--have made the overture a fitting opening piece to many concert programs, independently of its reference to the Pushkin-based opera.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), may well be the best known classical composer of all times, having not only affirmed aesthetics models pursued by his predecessors Haydn and Mozart, but also moving beyond them and charting a path to the Romantic style. The Valley Symphony Orchestra opened this symphonic season with his famous Fifth Symphony, and will fittingly feature another of his compositions at the closing symphonic concert. Beethoven wrote his triple concerto for piano, cello, violin and orchestra in the momentous year of 1803. Facing the fact that his hearing continued to deteriorate and the prospect that deafness would become his fate, Beethoven retreated from society and contemplated suicide. Despite all odds, he resolved to continue composing to the best of his abilities. Thus, 1803 became a pivotal year in Beethoven’s career; he transitioned from his “Early Period” to his “Heroic Period” of composition, which some regard as the dawn of the Romantic era.

The Triple Concerto represents many of the characteristics that made Beethoven memorable: his ability to work within existing musical traditions while expanding and innovating on them. The idea of a concerto for a small group of instruments goes back to the Baroque concerto grosso in which a small group of soloists (concertino) alternates with a fuller ensemble (ripieno). In the classical era this format became known as the sinfonia concertante. By Mozart’s day the format was more conventional: three movements organized like a classical concerto (fast-slow-fast), but the ornamental cadenzas of the baroque eras were replaced by virtuosic solo improvisations. Beethoven did not think of his piece in such terms, however. As his title suggests, he saw this work as an expansion of the solo concerto. The piano part is relatively simple, perhaps written for Beethoven’s student to whom the piece is dedicated. Perhaps, its simplicity derives from Beethoven’s struggles with deafness and his intention of potentially performing the piano part himself at the premiere. The cello exhibits some of the innovations in the concerto; despite its traditionally supportive role, it introduces various themes.

Dr. Brendan Kinsella (piano), Dr. Tido Janssen (cello), and Dr. Diana Seitz (violin), all professors of music at the University of Texas Pan American will interpret the solos. While creative, the piece does not make heavy demands on the listener and can be enjoyed by audiences of all levels of musical training and ability.

The concert will close with Brahms’s symphony no. 2. Like Beethoven, Brahms may be considered both a classical and a Romantic composer. On the one hand, he lived towards the end of the nineteenth century, the time of high romanticism. Accordingly he worked with a broad palette of harmonic colors and textures. On the other hand his drew inspiration from the music of previous generations, especially baroque counterpoint and classical formalism. Hailed by his contemporaries as Beethoven’s true heir, Brahms was paralyzed by the prospect of writing symphonies for many years. He finally decided he was up to the task after the age of 40, and sure enough, his first symphony has been called “Beethoven’s 10th.” After the premiere of his first symphony, Brahms quickly put his fears behind him and produced his second in just a few months.

The public received Brahms’s second symphony with even more enthusiasm than the first. Different in character from it, the second symphony was nicknamed Brahms’s “Pastoral Symphony,” again drawing parallel between his work and that of Beethoven. Indeed, even though still preserving a serious character and dramatic moments, the symphony in general has a lighter and happier tone overall. This symphony will thus bring a happy conclusion to a season that has been full of surprises and changes. Brahms joyful finale will energize you and leave you wanting for more excellent music, which you may hear in the final chamber and chorale concerts this season and the upcoming 63rd symphonic season.

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?

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.
