This is Not a Cat

Collages by Carl Vestweber

 

 

ART TALK & RECEPTION: April 4, 1 PM

On display at the South Texas College Starr Co. Library

January 17 – May 12, 2017

 

Carl Vestweber’s work explores his interests and experiences as an artist, husband and father living in the 21st century. His preferred media ranges from illustrative drawings and paintings to anthropomorphic cat art and abstracted dot collages. While the materials of this work may vary, the colors, themes of playful interaction, family, culture and power structures overlap and represent his experiences and understandings of the world around him.

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.

              641 E. Madison Street

When: May 2 through June 17, 2017

Included with paid Museum Admission

For more information, call 956-548-1313

Come visit an exhibit of beautiful artifacts from what is referred to as the “Pre-Columbian Period”. Many of these pieces were gathered by individuals who traveled throughout the Americas. This is a collection of ancient terracotta and geographic domain extends broadly into the cultures of the most notable empires of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, prior to the arrival of Europeans in the 15th century. The mystical names of the Olmecs, the Maya, the Huastecans, and the Inca are nobly represented in this resident collection. Each artifact offers an insight into the daily lives of their crafters; whether the item be an effigy of a figure from the religious world, a utilitarian vessel that was a part of their culinary practice, or an object that was inspired solely on an artistic level.

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) invites you to join us on May 6, 2017 from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. for the lecture by special guest Michael T. Ricker on To Spin a Yarn. Distaffs: Folk Art and Material Culture, which is an extraordinary exhibition that showcases over 70 decorated wooden distaffs, or spinning implements. The beautiful distaffs are rarely found today, since many didn't survive years of hard use. Today, distaffs remain cultural touchstones and marvelous examples of the rural craftsman's talent and creativity.

Dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, the distaffs come from countries across Europe, each of which has its own style. Originally simple sticks, they evolved into highly decorated objects, as important for their meanings as for their function. Distaffs hold unspun wool or fiber during the spinning process. They could be used with or without a spinning wheel to create thread or yarn for weaving cloth. Because spinning was traditionally women’s work, the word “distaff” came to mean “female.”

This exhibition includes three different types of distaffs. Russian ones often feature a large, footed base where the spinner sat. Short ones with no base usually attached to a spinning wheel. Long ones without a base were held under the arm or tucked in the belt. All three kinds could be used with a spinning wheel or a drop spindle.

Distaffs were more than tools. In some ways, they were the equivalent of an engagement ring today: a gift from a young man to his hoped-for spouse. A more expensive and elaborately decorated distaff expressed wealth and status. Individuals made some distaffs, but a workshop-based industry also sprang up in response to demand. The giver and the maker were not necessarily the same person. The time and money spent on these objects show the important place of cloth in a pre-industrial era.

The exhibition is organized by the Stephen F. Austin State University Galleries, and objects are on loan from the collection of Michael T. Ricker unless otherwise indicated. To learn more about the distaffs, folk art and material culture from Europe, come view the exhibition which will be on display in the Main Gallery of IMAS from May 6, 2017 to August 6, 2017.  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.

Scholars For Life Series to Feature The Causes and Consequences of the Texas Revolution

The Texas Revolution began in 1835 when most colonists from the United States rebelled against the Mexican government in the Mexican province of Texas. Dr. Linda English will present a program on the Texas Revolution along with its causes and consequences during the Scholars for Life lecture and presentation scheduled for Thursday, May 11, at 6 p.m. at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library.

The revolution started with the Battle of Gonzales on October 2, 1835, and ended with the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. It only lasted 18 minutes because Santa Anna’s army was caught off guard by the Texan army with his soldiers either being killed, scattered, or captured.

English received her Ph.D. in American History from the University of Oklahoma in May 2005. She taught at Oklahoma University and the University of Northern Colorado before becoming an Associate Professor of History at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Her research and publications focus primarily on race, class, and gender during the late nineteenth century, specifically Texas and Indian Territory. Her articles include “Revealing Accounts: Women’s Lives and General Stores” (“The Historian” 2002), “Inside the General Store, Inside the Past: A Cultural Analysis of McAlester’s General Store” (“The Chronicles of Oklahoma” 2003), and “Recording Race: General Stores and Race in the Late Nineteenth-Century Southwest” (“Southwestern Historical Quarterly” 2006). 

She also contributed a biographical chapter on Oscar James Dunn in “Before Obama: A Reappraisal of Black Reconstruction Era Politicians,” titled “That is All We Ask for—An Equal Chance: Oscar James Dunn, Louisiana’s First Black Lieutenant Governor,” ed. Matthew Lynch (Praeger 2012). Her most recent publication is “Southern Reflections: Evolving Attitudes on Race and Region in Indian Territory” (“Great Plains Quarterly” 2014).

In 2013, the University of Oklahoma Press published her book, “By All Accounts: General Stores and Community Life in Texas and Indian Territory.” Her current research examines the Runaway Scrape” and other aspects of the Texas Revolution through the lens of gender. Her current article under review is titled, “Madam, you ought to be the man such times as these:” Gendered Confrontations and the Runaway Scrape.

The Scholars For Life Series encourages library partnerships with local educational institutions by providing access to lifelong learning through lectures and presentations that enhance lives and the Rio Grande Valley community.

Their storylines have captivated many, and their imagery has become contemporary idols throughout the world. Experience the escapades of iconic superheroes with this pumped-up collection of international artworks in a variety of media at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS), opening on Saturday April 15, 2017.

For decades popular culture has been fascinated by superheroes - their superhuman capabilities, their desire for truth and justice, and their ability to save the day. Their storylines have captivated many, and their imagery has become contemporary idols throughout the world. Experience the escapades of iconic superheroes with this pumped-up collection of international artworks in a variety of media at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS), opening on Saturday April 15, 2017.

As contemporary idols, superheroes provide a rich source of inspiration for artists around the world. Exhibition My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action celebrates and re-envisions the possibilities that exist when you have a magic cape, lasso, or some superhuman power that changes everything. The variety of interpretations in My Hero is vast and challenging, dark and humorous, familiar yet new!

Through our exhibition-related programs of My Hero!, IMAS provides invaluable opportunities for all ages to experience contemporary art in new and exciting ways.

  • Heroes in the Sky - Stars and Skies will be on July 6th from 4 PM to 10 PM. We will explore the ancient superheroes in the sky. Learn about some of the most famous constellations including Hercules, Orion, and more! Discover the ways ancient heroes inspire the famous superheroes of modern times.

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.
