misc_none South Texas College Art Faculty Show Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Federico Gonzalez Jr.   (956) 872-2501   fgonza14@southtexascollege.edu
   

The Fine Arts Faculty at South Texas College celebrate 17 years of bringing art and exhibitions to South Texas with the Faculty Exhibit. The exhibit will run from Monday, November 24, 2014, to Thursday, February 12, 2015, with a reception on Thursday, January 29th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The community is invited to come and enjoy the exhibit, which will offer diverse aesthetic directions.

‘The Faculty Exhibit provides an opportunity for students to see their professor’s ‘homework’’, said faculty member Rachael Brown. It’s important for students to see that the faculty who are asking so much of them in various studio classes, are themselves still studying – asking questions, linking concepts together, expressing ideas about the world we live in, communicating with our colleagues and continuing to explore media. When we are life-long learners, and model that to our students, we’re providing a valuable lesson’. The gallery exhibit offers a space for conversations about the work on display, and topics that spin off from those works.

Exhibit will be open 8-5, Monday - Friday.

Dreams, Hope, and Magic by Puente
January 15th - March 7th, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 15, 2015
6:30 p.m.—9:30 p.m.

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.

Please join us for this exciting exhibition.

The exhibition is being hosted by Beyond Arts Gallery

Gallery hours are
Tuesday – Friday 11:00am – 7:00pm
Saturday 10am – 5:00 pm
Other times by appointment.

For additional information please contact Jessica Salazar McBride, 956-230-2859

Program is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors. Call (956) 681-3370 for more information or visit www.quintamazatlan.com

Everywhere, Evergreens!

The cooler seasons are slow to come to the plant world in the Valley. At some point in December or January, we begin to notice that some trees like Mesquites, Rio Grande Ashes, and perhaps Cedar Elms have lost their leaves and that things aren’t their usual bright green. This is the time to think about evergreens! Broadleaf evergreens are plants that stay green year-round, and provide shelter for birds and other wildlife, privacy in our yards, and a point of interest in gardens.

Join us at Quinta Mazatlan for our January Garden Walk & Talk tour on Everywhere, Evergreens! to learn about native evergreens that you can plant in your garden. The tour will run on Wednesdays from 10-11 a.m. We will walk the grounds of Quinta Mazatlan and learn about native trees and shrubs that stay green throughout the year.

The garden tours are led by Silvia Barr at Quinta Mazatlan in McAllen.  She grew up where tropical plants are native and has lived in places where the native vegetation is coniferous forests, deciduous forests, or thorn scrub, and has loved them all! She has a degree in Biology and a Masters in Horticulture.

Quinta Mazatlan is located at 600 Sunset in McAllen, one block south of La Plaza Mall on S. 10th Street. For more information, contact Quinta Mazatlan at (956) 681-3370 or visit www.quintamazatlan.com or Quinta’s Facebook page.

misc_none 7:30 PM John Legend - UTPA Distinguished Speaker Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: UTPA Student Union   (956) 665-7989   
   

The University of Texas-Pan American is proud to present nine-time Grammy award-winning R&B artist John Legend as the second guest of its Distinguished Speakers Series for the 2014-2015 school year. Legend will speak at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 2 at the UTPA Fieldhouse.

The “All of Me” crooner has earned millions of fans with his chart-topping albums, has collaborated and written best-selling recordings for artists such as Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Jay Z, and Kanye West and has embarked on worldwide tours. Legend recently won a Golden Globe award and was nominated for an Oscar for the song "Glory" that he wrote with the musical artist Common for the film "Selma."

Although he is primarily known for his musical talents, Legend has contributed his passions and ambition to benefit the lives of others. His song “Show Me” became the inspiration for the Show Me Campaign  he launched in 2007 that aims to break the cycle of poverty by striving to inspire society to take action and provide children with a quality education.

In addition, he is also a member of the board of directors of Pop Tech, a network that uses research to adopt new initiatives and encourage diverse new projects and ideas.

Legend’s humanitarian efforts have earned him numerous awards, including 2012 BET Humanitarian of the Year Award, the 2009 CARE Humanitarian Award for Global Change, the 2009 Bishop John T. Walker Distinguished Humanitarian Service Award from Africare, and the 2012 Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year Award.

He is the national spokesperson for the Management Leadership for Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization equipping minority business leaders with the keys to success. Furthermore, he has partnered with Samsung to support educational outlets with a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.

Legend’s advocacy for education, along with his many accomplishments, landed him a spot in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.

 “Through his philanthropic efforts he has been able to give back to the world,” said Sergio Martinez, director, UTPA Student Union and Residence Life. “Social responsibility and service to others is a value we want our student body to share.”

The Distinguished Speakers Series program has been a well attended experience for UTPA students and the University community over the last decade.  It is an event that offers insight and engagement. Now in its 11th season, the series is underwritten by student fees as recommended by the Student Affairs Advisory Committee.

Past speakers have included former leader of Russia Mikhail Gorbachev, former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, author and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou and Emmy award-winning CNN host Larry King.

The event is free and open to the public with seating available to 2,000 people. To expedite seating that night, 1,000 wristbands will be made available at 8 a.m., Feb. 2 at the Student Union Information Desk to students who have a valid UTPA ID.  The wristband will allow them early admission at 6:15 p.m. and guaranteed seating. Other students without wristbands, staff, and faculty with valid ID's will be admitted at 6:30 p.m. Doors will open for the general public at 6:45 p.m.  An overflow audience area where Legend's presentation will be streamed live will be held in the Student Union Theater.

For special accommodations, call the Student Union Office at (956) 665-7989.

    Contact: Lillian Carrillo   956.447.1288   lillianm@southtexascollege.edu
   

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.

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.

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.

 Gathering of the Texas (Rare) Fruit Growers of The Rio Grande Valley!

Saturday, February 28th, 2pm @ The Valley Nature Center (301 South Border Ave., Weslaco, TX 78599).

 This will be a gathering where all are welcome who have an interest in fruit, plants, grafting and growing.

 Many who attended the initial TRFG-RGV gathering in August 2014 were exposed to an amazing variety of fruit that is being grown by people in their Rio Grande Valley home gardens!

 The August gathering gave everyone some new plants to go home with and we look to this February gathering
 for another opportunity to repeat the mission of having everyone give and receive even more exciting plants and fruits!

 Our December gathering had several new faces who were exposed to citrus fruit that was collected from the Upper Gulf Coast Citrus Show in Houston, Texas on December 4, 2014. Some of the 313 exhibited fruit, grown by 59 exhibitors, was distributed at our Rio Grande Valley meeting for a one-of-a-kind citrus tasting!

 Some of the citrus varieties distributed included, but was not limited to:
 -Oro Blanco Hybrid Grapefruit
 -Ponderosa Lemon
 -Panzarella Lemon
 -Pomelo
 -Calamondin
 -Kumquat
 -Tangerine
 -Mandarin
 -Moro Blood Orange

 We want to continue reaching out to those who want to share their growing experience,
 along with generating new friendships through (growing, sharing, and tasting) fruit!

 Please look around your plant collection, and consider bringing one,
or multiple plants or fruits to the gathering for the opportunity to exchange with other people and perhaps,
 go home with one or many new fruits and/or fruiting plants!

 At our gatherings, we always discuss the following topics:

The 5K race route begins on the west end of PSJA Stadium located on 709 E. Gore, runners then dash through the heart of this city, and then finish near the original starting line.

Although the primary purpose of this event is to encourage physical fitness through an enjoyable health conscious recreational activity, it is also intended to promote Pharr’s increasingly charming downtown district. There will be cash prizes and trophies awarded to the top finishers, and there will also be live music and entertainment for the entire family. Online registration will be available at register.iaapweb.com and the fee is only $5. per participant, ages 17 and younger, and $10 for adults.
