misc_none 9:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) invites you to take a deep dive into the mysterious world of deep-sea exploration and discovery this summer!  Children of all ages will love exploring life at the bottom of the sea. With multiple interactives using modern technology, visitors will learn firsthand about the geologic forces deep within the earth and the magnificent engineering feats of Mother Nature as they explore our latest exhibition Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss presented by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss exhibition puts the technology necessary for deep-sea exploration in your hands so that you may develop a greater interest in scientific discovery or, at the very least, a better appreciation for the pursuit. You will join fellow explorers in an interior replica of the submersible Alvin's 

personnel sphere, which you can operate to simulate a dive to depths of up to three miles. You can fly a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) over a model of the Titanic's deck or test your skill at manipulating Alvin's robotic arm by picking up lava rocks and clams from the seafloor while peering through a re-creation of Alvin's four-inch viewport window. It's not as easy as it looks!

Geologic forces deep within the earth drive the great crustal plates of our planet, building seafloor features that create hydrothermal vents. Researchers study the process firsthand in WHOI’s submersible Alvin, or using other tools like the remotely operated vehicle JASON and autonomous underwater vehicles ABE and REMUS

Extreme Deep brings the sea floor to the surface in an amazing display that illustrates the magnificent engineering feats of Mother Nature, such as the building of enormous “black smokers” that spew mineral-rich fluid into the ocean supporting life vastly different from that flourishing on land or shallow water.

Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss exhibition will be open from May 20 to September 4, 2017 in the Discovery Pavilion of IMAS. There is an additional $4 charge for this exhibit except for Family Premium Members or above. Be sure to mark the exhibition dates in your calendar. Ask us about our Museums for All program. For more information on Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss, please call (956) 682-0123 or visit www.theimasonline.org. IMAS is located at 1900 W. Nolana Avenue, McAllen, TX 78504.

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

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is pleased to present Imaginary Botanicals: Sculptures in Glass by Kathleen Elliot, an exhibition of works from the last decade by California-based artist Kathleen Elliot in the Central Gallery of IMAS from May 20 through September 10, 2017. Elliot creates sculptures out of flame worked glass, using a variety of botanical forms including leaves, flowers, fruits, pods, and vines that convey a sense of fantasy and mystery.

Her work has moved from the representational to the imaginary, in which plant forms incorporate human characteristics and convey a sense of fantasy and mystery. Her sculptures are modern studio glass, a blend of art, science, and technological innovation that embrace the notion of glass as a medium for creative expression, in contrast to its use in industrial production.

Prior to being an artist, she had a career as a hairstylist; then built a career in organizational development. In 1991, an invitation from a friend to try glasswork in his garage paved the way to a new life. Elliot took to working with glass immediately and began teaching herself the art of making glass beads, which she pursued for the next eight years. This introduction to flame work, working with a torch directly on glass, was to serve as the basis for her future sculptural projects.

Elliot took her first glassblowing workshop in 1996 and studied art at De Anza College. She attended the Pilchuck Glass School for three summers where she studied with leading glass artists Laura Donefer, Robert Mickelsen, and Shane Fero. The Imaginary Botanical series explores and plays with the notion of imagination, using whatever ideas struck her: a plant and cyclone hybrid, a botanical giraffe, a plant ballerina. It’s a fun series.

The exhibition Imaginary Botanicals: Sculptures in Glass by Kathleen Elliot is 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.

Oscar Alvarez: Of Beasts and Butterflies will be on exhibition at the McAllen Public Library from June 25 through September 10, 2017. Brownsville self-taught artist Oscar Alvarez is by day a funeral director. In his second career, he is a painter of fantastical, playful and mysterious images. Delving into his rich imagination, Alvarez creates paintings that play with the contrast between our dreams and our nightmares. Circus themes, fantastical animals and brilliant colors mingle with monsters, flames and darkness. The beasts and butterflies speak to the dichotomies we all experience in our lives.

misc_none 9:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Exhibition | American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artist's Colony Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Abby Alaniz   956-681-2800   aalaniz@theimasonline.com
   

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is pleased to present American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artist’s Colony, an exhibition featuring the stellar collection of works by American Impressionists from the Reading Public Museum in Pennsylvania. This exhibition opens on August 12, 2017 and runs through November 12, 2017 in the Clark Gallery of IMAS.

This collection of lyrical landscapes, ranging from snow-covered hills to sun-filled harbors and seascapes, penetrating portraits, and remarkable still life paintings documents an important moment in the history of American art. It includes more than 50 works, including 40 oil paintings and almost 20 works on paper dating from the golden age of American Impressionism, the 1880s through the 1940s. A wide range of approaches to Impressionism in the earliest twentieth century is explored, including an abiding interest in capturing the effects of light and atmosphere in loosely brushed compositions.

Arranged according to the artists’ colonies that played a critical role in the development of American Impressionism around the turn of the century, this exhibition examines those at Cos Cob and Old Lyme in Connecticut; Cape Cod, Cape Anne, and Rockport, in Massachusetts; New Hope and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and Taos, New Mexico. Within each of these colonies, artists were able to teach, collaborate, and escape the daily rigors of their city studios. Often located in scenic locations within striking distance of major cities, artists’ colonies served up steady doses of natural beauty and provided ample subject matter.

“The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see such a wide variety of approaches to Impressionism in America,” said Scott Schweigert, The Reading Public Museum’s Curator of Art and Civilization. “I think visitors will be delightfully surprised by the tremendous scope and depth of these works. While the exhibition includes some ‘big name’ artists; there are also some rediscoveries of lesser-known painters who also embraced elements of Impressionism.”

Leading artists of the movement include William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Chauncey Ryder, Frank W. Benson, Charles Webster Hawthorne, Daniel Garber and Edward Redfield, among others. In addition, American expatriate artist Mary Cassatt will be examined. American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artists' Colony is organized by the Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania.

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.

Join the Write Stuff Club on Thursday, August 24 at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library for the Club’s Third Annual Reading Presentation. The event is scheduled to start promptly at 6 p.m. and end by 8 p.m.

The Write Stuff, a group of local writers, will read the short stories they have worked on for the past year. The group was created in September 2014.  Members meet every other Wednesday to fine tune their writing skills. Their main goal is to publish their works. 

During this special presentation, authors will read stories they are now ready to share with the public.  The stories include a wide range of genres.  The featured authors are:

  • Gloria Perez, a short story writer with a background in theater. Her inspiration comes from world myths, classic fairy tales, and human superstition. Her work has been described as romantic suspense and magical realism. 
  • Dee Lopez has been a writer since she received a toy typewriter for Christmas when she was nine years old. She recently returned from the League of Texas Writers conference in Austin where she had a chance to network with more than 600 writers.
  • Dr. Marjorie Anne Estevis considers herself a writer of fiction, but does enjoy writing and performing poetry with her granddaughter. Estevis, a retired educator, has authored two young adult fiction books, “Down Garrapata Road” and “Chicken Foot Farm.” As well as the novel “Goat Creek Crossing” and a book of short fiction “Welcome to Tecolote, Texas.”
  • Steven Ramirez, a retired salesperson who enjoys cooking and reading. His writing is influenced by historical fiction and legal suspense novels. 
  • Valerie Ramirez, a former elementary school teacher who loves history, gardening, and writing.
  • Fernando (Fred) Gorena, Jr., an Air Force veteran, a nationally published cartoonist, an editorial cartoonist, a former grocer, a draftsman and a man who likes to write when the inspiration hits him.

This year’s event Master of Ceremonies is Daniel Garcia Ordaz. He is a teacher and writer and an emerging voice in Hispanic American poetry. He has book publishing experience, including editing and book cover design credits. García has an MFA in Creative Writing, a terminal degree, from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. He's also a songwriter, former journalist and word-maker-upper.

He appears in the documentary, “ALTAR: Cruzando Fronteras/Building Bridges” and he was one of five authors and the only poet selected to participate in the Texas Latino Voices project in 2009 by the Texas Center For The Book, the state affiliate of the Library of Congress. García Ordaz is also a founder of the Rio Grande Valley International Poetry Festival. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from The University of Texas-Pan American. 

The Sekula Memorial Library looks forward to showcasing these up and coming writers as they share their talented writings with the community.

Date: Thursday, August 24, 2017

Time: 7:00PM

Location: Main Library, Meeting Room A

As most pathways of the Underground Railroad lead north into Canada, there was also movement through south Texas and into Mexico. Lured by the fact that slavery was abolished in Mexico in 1829, slaves were able to achieve freedom by slipping over the Rio Grande and settling in colonies throughout northern Mexico.

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.”

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.”

The Board of Trustees and the Museum’s staff members are excited to announce Collage 2017: IMAS 50th Anniversary, a black-tie celebration, which will take place at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) on September 16th from 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. Mark your calendars and reserve your tickets to join us as we honor both individuals and businesses that have supported us over the past 50 years. Collage is one of the longest running fundraisers raising critical funds and is one of the most eagerly anticipated social events of the year that benefits IMAS. These funds allow us to continue creating an inspirational legacy by providing life enhancing art and science exhibitions, educational programs, and cultural events serving to inspire our visitors to “Think. Discover. Experience. & Create!”

This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the International Museum of Art & Science also known as the McAllen International Museum (MIM). The Museum was chartered under the laws of the state of Texas on June 2, 1967 through the efforts of the Women’s Junior Service League and the McAllen City Commission to increase the quality of life for the citizens of the Rio Grande Valley and to provide activities in the arts and sciences that are meaningful, educational, and available to the public.

The Museum was dedicated and formally opened to the public on October 26, 1969. During that time the Museum presented and showcased collections in art, science and history. The Museum staff members and Board of Trustees made acquisitions to grow the museum’s collection of Mexican folk art and contemporary art of the region. In addition to art acquisitions, the Museum also collected scientific specimens of rocks, minerals, and sea life including coral and shells.

In 1974 when the McAllen citizens voted to construct a new 21, 000 sq. ft. building at its present location on Nolana Ave. through a city bond. The Board of Trustees raised $400,000 for new exhibits, furnishings and landscaping. In 1982, the Board of Trustees narrowed the focus of the museum to the arts and sciences and in 2001 an additional building was added and the name changed to the International Museum of Art & Science.

Today IMAS has 50,000 sq. ft. of exhibition, programming and outside sculpture and play space. IMAS is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), is a Smithsonian Affiliate, a member of the Association of Science and Technology Centers and Museums for All program. IMAS, the largest art and science museum in the Rio Grande Valley, hosts over 70,000 visitors a year. IMAS has delighted visitors by featuring the finest national and international art and science exhibitions while providing exceptionally engaging educational programs since its establishment on June 2, 1967. A must see exhibition at IMAS is the Science on a Sphere, located inside the IMAS Theatre. There are only 145 Science on a Sphere theaters throughout the world.
