misc_none 9:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Exhibition Display-Gloria Garfinkel: Origami Interpretations Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Abby Alaniz   956-682-0123   aalaniz@theimasonline.com
   

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is pleased to present Gloria Garfinkel: Origami Interpretations, an exhibition of twenty-nine vibrant paintings, sculptures and prints by the New York-based artist on display in the Clark Gallery at IMAS from January 21 through April 2, 2017. The exhibition features pieces from several of Garfinkel’s series, including Gingko Kimono, collaged etchings from the late 1980s; paintings inspired by the obi or Japanese sash; etchings from the Kiku (Chrysanthemum) series; Kado woodcut prints, Hanabi maquettes; and aluminum Flip paintings.

Garfinkel draws inspiration from her extensive international travel and her keen interest in science and mathematics. Her art is an immersion in vibrant bursts of color and vivid patterning, embedded in animated geometry. The forms are clear and strong, but the structures that they create are surprising and changeable, unfolding in unpredictable permutations. The works, produced in the late 20th century, accentuate the artist’s dramatic intellectual and emotional interconnection, inspired by Japanese designs and origami forms.

The most distinctive body of work presented in Gloria Garfinkel: Origami Interpretations consists of striped wall panels, fabricated in aluminum, with inset sections that rotate when manipulated by the viewer. In Seven Circles (2008), seven striped and checkered circles, in pastel and non-primary colors, tumble across a wall. Some circles bunch up into each other more than others, and two or three can be turned by the viewer to push the movement of the sequence along. Garfinkel has accommodated patterning to the optical potential of moving discs by processing patterns through mathematics, the basis of most of her pattern work.

The exhibition Gloria Garfinkel: Origami Interpretations has been organized through Katherine T. Carter & Associates. Join us for all of our new programs and activities! General admission is FREE for IMAS Members; $7/Adult; $5/Senior or Student with ID; $4/Child (4-12). Ask us about our Museums for All program. For more information, please call (956) 682-0123 or visit www.theimasonline.org.

Location: Welcome Pavilion

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is the premier venue for the photography exhibition Architecture of the Rio Grande Valley: A Visual Journey from November 12, 2016 to April 9, 2017 in the Welcome Pavilion at IMAS. The 30 photographs selected from a forthcoming book, Architecture of the Rio Grande Valley: Vol. I, celebrate the architecture that reflects the region, its craftsmen, its cultures and its climate over the past 160 years. Photographer Deval “Pino” Shah has captured the significant architecture of the four border counties and created a visual perspective of the Valley: its traditions and innovations, persistence, and adaptations.

On Saturday, November 12, Shah will talk about Architecture of the Rio Grande Valley from 1:00 P.M. to 3 P.M. in the Welcome Pavilion at IMAS. On Sunday, November 13, Shah will conduct a photography workshop from 2 P.M. to 3:30 P.M., which will include a discussion of cameras (smartphone and/or dslr), lenses, shooting in RAW, tripods and composition basics. Bring your own camera or smart photo for hands-on tips and tricks. Stay after and work with Mr. Shah as you snap some photos of IMAS! This workshop is perfect for beginner to intermediate photographers.

The exhibition’s architectural images provide a journey through history and heritage while revealing that the border’s built environment is filtered through diverse cultures:  Mexican, Spanish, American, German, and French.

Pino Shah is a photographer based in McAllen, Texas, and Ahmedabad, India, who specializes in architecture, food and the performing arts (ArtByPino.com). His architectural photographs of his birthplace Ahmedabad are aiding a grassroots project to secure a UNESCO World Heritage City designation for the 600-year-old city.

The research and words accompanying Shah’s photographs are by Stephen Fox and Rochelle Hawk. Architectural historian Stephen Fox is a Fellow of  The Anchorage Foundation of Texas. Rochelle Hawk is a writer based in Ohio. A former journalist, she now works in marketing and public relations.

General Admission is free for IMAS Members: $7/Adult; $5/Senior or Student with ID; $4 Child. Ask about our Museums for All Program. For more information, please call 956-682-0123 or visit www.theimasonline.org. IMAS is located at 1900 W. Nolana Avenue, McAllen.

THE UNEXAMINED PORTRAIT

Mixed media by Len Davis and Jessie Burciaga

 

ART TALK: February 22, 1 PM

RECEPTION: February 22, 5-7 PM

On display at the South Texas College Pecan Library 

January 17 – February 26, 2017

 

  

Len Davis (Los Angeles, California) was born in Philadelphia, PA and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina University in North Carolina. Davis works mainly in assemblage and collage where he uses found objects, drawings, graphite, gouache, and acrylic. He has been exhibiting prolifically since 2004, working on television and movie set designs and art exhibits across the United States.  About his work, he says, “My pieces deal with life itself: the people we are, what we create, our capabilities and the issues with which we deal. My premise is to lure the viewer in. Once they’re in, they will be placed in a position to reflect on and question their ethics, be it disquieting or placid.”

 

Jessie Burciaga (Brownsville, TX) is a local artist who was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. He received his degree from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and works in printmaking, painting and collage. About his recent series he says, “I grasp the soul of my border town and imprint it through portraits of its hardworking people. The intention behind these portraits is to capture, immortalize, and display the level of resilience of each person. My subjects, often considered average by outsiders, are our local urban heroes.”

    Contact: Abby Alaniz   956-682-0123   aalaniz@theimasonline.com
   

International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is pleased to present the exhibition Fusing Spirits Old and New: Mexican Masks from the IMAS Permanent Collection on display from January 28, 2017 to April 9, 2017 in the Cardenas Gallery. Masks have a long and rich history in cultures around the world, and those traditions in Mexico are particularly rich and vibrant. The exhibition will feature the original grouping of masks donated to IMAS by Dr. David and Bernice Harner in 1986. These hammered copper masks were created in Altamirano and La Parota in the southwestern Mexican state of Guerrero. Long a center of mask making, this region began to produce traditional masks for the tourist trade around the 1970s. Based on old forms of masks used in traditional festival dances, these masks combine lightweight copper metal plates with delicate texture and colorful paint. The resulting masks are both elegant and whimsical.

The Bearded Man, or El Barbón, may come from the Dance of the Marquis, one of many dances originating in Colonial Spanish efforts to convert native Mexicans to Catholicism. The deer on the man’s forehead possibly refers to the animal sacred to the Yaqui and Mayo tribes. The tortuga or tortoise mask is carefully hammered to create the pattern of a shell with a beautifully colored human or spirit face in the center. A rich Mexican tradition since at least 1200 BCE, these Mexican masks reflect a fusion of cultural and religious practices, resulting in an extremely rich, complex and evocative art form.

Join us for all of our new exhibitions and programs! General admission is FREE for IMAS Members. For the general public, tickets are $7 for adult, $5 for seniors or student with ID, $4 for children age 4-12, and free for children age 3 and under. Ask us about our Museums for All program.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV), in partnership with the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library in Edinburg, is the recipient of a $16,000 grant to host the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read program.

The NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. The NEA Big Read in our community will focus on the novel In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez.

In the Time of the Butterflies transports readers to the Dominican Republic in the mid-20th century when the country struggled under the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. A work of historical fiction, the novel honors the lives of Patria, Minerva, and Maria Teresa Mirabel, who became icons of freedom and women’s rights when they were assassinated in autumn 1960 for their role in the underground movement against Trujillo’s regime. The murders of the three women inspired many in the Dominican Republic and marked the beginning of the end of Trujillo’s reign. 

Book discussion groups and other Big Read activities will take place in March 2017, including a presentation by U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera on March 2 at 12 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center on the UTRGV campus in Edinburg.

Grant recipient and professor of Creative Writing in the College of Fine Arts at UTRGV, Dr. Steven Schneider said, “This is an exciting program which will be launched during FESTIBA and will offer an opportunity for the entire community to engage with an important novel through a variety of stimulating programs.”

Past participation in the Big Read was met with great enthusiasm according to Library Director Leticia Leija.

“This year we hope to continue the excitement generated by the shared experience of reading the same book, as we jointly read and discuss In the Time of the Butterflies,” Leija said. “This book is sure to engage our Hispanic community in vivid book discussions planned in various Libraries and schools throughout Starr, Hidalgo, and Cameron County.”

For more information about the NEA Big Read visit neabigread.org.  To participate in a community book discussion contact Omero Morales at 956-383-6246 or visit the library located at 1906 South Closner Boulevard.

Carlos Ochoa is a graduate of the UTRGV Studio Art Program. In his recent Vogue series, he paints over models to embellish the commercial ideal of beauty by manipulating ads found within Vogue magazines. In his newest Vogue series, the viewer is left to interpret the altered art form as well as their own perspective on how companies sell their products by misusing the viewer’s notion of beauty.

Carmen Lomas Garza (San Francisco, CA) was born in Kingsville, Texas, in 1948. Inspired by her parent’s activism with the American G.I. Forum, Lomas Garza joined the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. She earned her M.A. from San Francisco State University in 1981. Lomas Garza is an author, illustrator, and artist. About her work she says, “I saw the need to create images that would elicit recognition and appreciation among Mexican Americans, both adults and children, while at the same time serve as a source of education for others not familiar with our culture. It has been my objective since 1969 to make artwork that instills pride in our history and culture in American society.”

The Carmen Lomas Garza collection of artwork and books is a gracious loan from George Gause and Virginia Haynie Gause who began collecting in the 1970s.

South Texas College began collecting artwork in 2006 with a photograph from Ansen Seale. Eleven years later, the college has a collection of over 300 pieces and is a high value asset to the region. To celebrate Women’s History Month and to commemorate the generations of women whose significant contributions have proved invaluable to society, the exhibit will host thirty-eight women in South Texas College’s Collection.

ITheatre kicks off the Spring Season with their production of Drinking Habits.  This fast paced comedy follows The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing, two nuns in a small convent, trying to keep the doors open by secretly making and selling wine to the local townspeople.  The only problem is the two nuns have been keeping their secret from the head nun, Mother Superior, who hates wine so much she can't even mention the word. Add on two snooping reporters going undercover as clergy and Rome sending out secret spies to check on convents, and you have a zany show about good intentions going bad.

Drinking Habits  will be performed at the historic Tower Theater of Weslaco, located at 120 S. Kansas Ave Weslaco, Texas 78596. Performances will be at 7:00 p.m on Friday February 24, Saturday February 25, March 3, and Saturday March 4.  There will also be two special matinee performances 2pm Saturday February 25 and March 4.  Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at www.itheatreoftexas.com, by calling 956-261-5656, or at the box office the day of the show.

ITheatre kicks off the Spring Season with their production of Drinking Habits.  This fast paced comedy follows The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing, two nuns in a small convent, trying to keep the doors open by secretly making and selling wine to the local townspeople.  The only problem is the two nuns have been keeping their secret from the head nun, Mother Superior, who hates wine so much she can't even mention the word. Add on two snooping reporters going undercover as clergy and Rome sending out secret spies to check on convents, and you have a zany show about good intentions going bad.

Drinking Habits  will be performed at the historic Tower Theater of Weslaco, located at 120 S. Kansas Ave Weslaco, Texas 78596. Performances will be at 7:00 p.m on Friday February 24, Saturday February 25, March 3, and Saturday March 4.  There will also be two special matinee performances 2pm Saturday February 25 and March 4.  Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at www.itheatreoftexas.com, by calling 956-261-5656, or at the box office the day of the show.

FESTIBA 2017

"The Healing Arts:
Arte y Salud – Una Buena Alianza!"

Overview:

The Festival of International Books and Arts (FESTIBA) was established in 2006 to promote the importance of literacy, culture and the arts to students, parents, educators and community members throughout the Rio Grande Valley. With the theme The Healing Arts: Arte y Salud – Una Buena Alianza!, FESTIBA 2017 will take place February 27 through March 5.

Healing is more than the prevention and curing of disease — it is also about the fulfillment and expression of the full potential of the heart, the mind and the spirit! Traditional healing arts include music, art, dance, creative writing, and drama. The healing arts have been described as creative activities and practices of artistic expression that promote wellness and healthy living. Join us for FESTIBA 2017, as we explore the positive impact of the healing arts on good health!

Carmen Lomas Garza (San Francisco, CA) was born in Kingsville, Texas, in 1948. Inspired by her parent’s activism with the American G.I. Forum, Lomas Garza joined the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. She earned her M.A. from San Francisco State University in 1981. Lomas Garza is an author, illustrator, and artist. About her work she says, “I saw the need to create images that would elicit recognition and appreciation among Mexican Americans, both adults and children, while at the same time serve as a source of education for others not familiar with our culture. It has been my objective since 1969 to make artwork that instills pride in our history and culture in American society.”

The Carmen Lomas Garza collection of artwork and books is a gracious loan from George Gause and Virginia Haynie Gause who began collecting in the 1970s.

South Texas College began collecting artwork in 2006 with a photograph from Ansen Seale. Eleven years later, the college has a collection of over 300 pieces and is a high value asset to the region. To celebrate Women’s History Month and to commemorate the generations of women whose significant contributions have proved invaluable to society, the exhibit will host thirty-eight women in South Texas College’s Collection.

Campers will get to know the planets in our solar system and create a beautiful solar system model to take home. Your camper will have a blast as they build and launch a rocket fueled by soda pop and get messy with galaxy inspired space slime!

Campers from grades 3-5 will discover the needs of living things and what it takes to survive on other planets. Campers will travel through our solar system on a search for alien life. They will build a spaceship and harness the power of propulsion to launch their very own miniature rocket.

Full Day sessions are from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., please bring a brown bagged lunch. A snack will be provided in the afternoon. Please note, snacks may not meet all dietary restrictions.

Looking for something fun and educational for the kids to do during spring break? IMAS is hosting Spring Break Camp from March 13 to March 17, 2017 for children who are in grades PreK-5. Each day is a new adventure as we build, experiment, create and explore. Your kids will have so much fun they won’t even realize they’re learning! 

Campers from grades Prek-2 will learn what it takes to be an astronaut as they train to become an outer-space explorer. Campers will get to know the planets in our solar system and create a beautiful solar system model to take home. Your camper will have a blast as they build and launch a rocket fueled by soda pop and get messy with galaxy inspired space slime!

Campers from grades 3-5 will discover the needs of living things and what it takes to survive on other planets. Campers will travel through our solar system on a search for alien life. They will build a spaceship and harness the power of propulsion to launch their very own miniature rocket.

Full Day sessions are from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., please bring a brown bagged lunch. A snack will be provided in the afternoon. Please note, snacks may not meet all dietary restrictions. Before care or after care is $5/day. Before care and after care is $8/day. Before care begins at 8 AM, after care runs until 4 PM.

The Brew-seum 2017 Committee is once again preparing for the International Museum of Art & Science’s (IMAS) annual fundraiser Brew-seum Craft Beer Week to be held Tuesday, April 4 to Sunday, April 9, 2017. SAVE THE DATE!

Originally known as A Night at the Brew-seum (a one-day beer festival), the fundraiser expanded to a full week’s worth of events six years ago so as to quench the Valley’s ever-growing love for craft beer. Various locations, restaurants, and bars in the City of McAllen will serve as Brew-seum Week’s backdrops that perfectly compliment the various activities surrounding the festival.

For more information on sponsorship opportunities, participating restaurants, or events, please visit www.brew-seum.com or call (956) 682-0123.

In our 24th year, The Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival continues to delight birders with excellent field trips, fascinating presentations, terrific workshops and overall, a Texas-friendly event.  Field trips (fee) go to destinations up and down the Valley.  Presentations and workshops (some fee, some free) strive to hone birders' skills, or inspire them to see what experiences are available in the birding world.  Other free events include a trade show with over 60 vendors, a family bird walk, The Raptor Shows, and activities for kids in Kiskadee Korner.  Registration will begin two weeks after the website with details goes live (early July).  See www.rgvbf.org.
