This exhibit runs through November 25, 2018. An opening reception and artist lecture will occur on July 21 from 2-4 p.m. in the fine art galleries. The exhibit and accompanying events are included in the cost of General Admission and free for IMAS Members.

South Texas College highlights the work of two recent BFA graduates

South Texas College’s Technology Campus Library Art Gallery proudly presents “Recent BFA Graduates: Mariela Gonzalez and Victoria Zuniga,” a 2-D exhibit of paintings. The exhibit opens Tuesday, September 4 and runs through December 4, 2018. There will be an Q&A and reception on November 15 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Technology Campus Library Art Gallery. The exhibit is located at 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

Mariela Gonzalez and Victoria Zuniga both completed UTRGV’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program in December 2017. Gonzalez and Zuniga both lean towards 2-D work. The technical skill and stories of these students’ progress will be inspiring to current students and public and will give unique insight into a new generation of local professional artists.

Mariela will be exhibiting her 48 pigeon paintings showcasing a different pigeon breed in each one. Each painting measures 8" by 8" and varies in bright colored background. The birds seem to have their own personality, some are big and poufy while others are thin with long legs. Victoria will be exhibiting a collection of paintings portraying porcelain or ball-jointed dolls. They each have an eerie feel to them with their cracked exterior and vacant glares.

The Latino List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders

September 18, 2018-January 6, 2019

On loan from the San Antonio Museum of Art, The Latino List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders presents thirty-one portraits of influential Latinos who span the worlds of culture, business, politics, and sports. From professional golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez to rapper Pitbull to Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, renowned photographer and director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders documents the vibrant culture of Hispanic America. The Latino List is the museum’s major fall exhibition, in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Texas is particularly well-represented in the series, which features former mayor Henry Cisneros, writer Sandra Cisneros, and South Texas’s actress Eva Longoria. 

As one of America’s foremost contemporary portraitists, Greenfield-Sanders (American, born 1952) has explored constructions of identity and community throughout his career. His works invite viewers to ask questions about how we participate in groups, both self-defined and defined by others. Is there an essential communal identity? At the same time, his candid portraits celebrate the individual characters of their sitters. Previous series include The Black List (2008), a collection of contemporary African American sitters; Injured Soldiers (2008); About Face (2012), portraits of female models; The Women’s List (2015); and The Trans List (2017).

Greenfield-Sanders has also made award-winning documentaries that similarly explore community and biography including Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart, which won a Grammy Award for Best Long-Form Video.

To see the trailer for the documentary The Latino List, made in tandem with the exhibition, please click here.

The exhibition is included in the cost of General Admission and is free for IMAS Members. A special preview of the exhibition will be hosted on September 15, 2018 during our Collage Annual Gala.

STC Drawing instructor uses charcoal and water from the Rio Grande in new exhibit

South Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery presents “Hydrogen, Oxygen, Carbon,” an exhibit featuring charcoal drawings by Luis Corpus. This exhibit marks the opening of the newly renovated Library Art Gallery at the Mid-Valley Campus and begins Monday, October 8 and will be on view through December 1, 2018. There will be an opening reception and artist lecture with Corpus on October 8 at 6 p.m.  The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

Luis Corpus’s current body of work uses symbolic medium of handmade charcoal from branches and water from the Rio Grande River. He creates portraits using these materials, attempting to express a cultural identity whose dual nature does not handily offer itself to absolutes. Corpus is an instructor of Art at South Texas College.

“Artists are simply catalysts reacting to their environment. The best singers create tone by allowing the sound to bellow from deep within their diaphragm,” said Luis Corpus. “Art should be created with a similar concept in mind. It should emanate from a person’s ‘core’, translating experiences and the concept of self in the process. Self, referring to the individual, and by extension the commonality of human experience.”

This new, comic play for children features over 22 performers and giant, Mexican-styled puppets, called mojigangas, which are over eleven feet tall.

The story begins with an undocumented family in South Texas that's struggling to keep its spirits up in the face of extraordinary hardships.

When all hope is lost, magical puppets appear and transform the local flea market, where the family works, into an uplifting celebration of life. All ends well for the family and they join the puppets in a spectacular parade.

Sunday Speaker Series: Traditional Uses of Native Plants with Benito Trevino

October 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Benito Treviño, an ethnobotanist, owns Rancho Lomitas Native Plant Nursery located outside of Rio Grande City. During his presentation, Treviño will discuss the many ways native plants can be utilized, ranging from healing skin cuts to preparing meals. The history of native plants will also include how the native peoples in the region used plants to survive. After learning which plants are the right ingredients for cooking, guests are encouraged to visit the Museum Store and pick up a copy of “Heritage Cookbook” or choose from a variety of locally-sourced foods such as Cappadona Ranch mesquite bean jelly. Guests can also browse through the book selection at the Museum Store and find a variety of cookbooks from salsa making to Texas barbecue.

Treviño graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in botany. Since starting the nursery, Benito has grown more than 800,000 native plants, which have been used for native landscapes and restoration projects throughout the state.

Sunday Speaker Series is included in the fee for regular museum admission. FRIENDS of the MOSTHistory are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship and must provide their FRIENDship upon entrance.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley.

Carmona was the winner of the NACCS Tejas Award for Best Fiction Book of 2016 for The Road to Llorona Park.

Monica Munoz Martinez is Stanley J. Bernstein Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies at Brown University and an Andrew Carnegie Fellow. She is cofounder of the nonprofit organization Refusing to Forget, which calls for a public reckoning with racial violence in Texas.

Día de los Muertos: Calaveras y Ofrendas

November 3 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

In Mexico, calaveras (skulls) and calacas (skeletons) are used in the annual remembrance of the dead. Mexican artist, illustrator and printmaker José Guadalupe Posada used calaveras and calacas to make social commentary on the living. His most famous artwork, “La Calavera Garbancera,” is a wood-print etching of a calaca portrayed as a mocking image of a snobby society woman with a big fancy hat. This image is also widely known as “La Calavera Catrina.” Posada’s artwork pokes fun at the elites of his time by showing that possessions in life are of little importance in death. During Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, sugar skulls are placed on home altars. Names are written on the skulls as a token of remembrance, and the deceased’s favorite foods and drinks are placed as ofrendas (offerings) for their return.

The Museum of South Texas History’s (MOSTHistory) event celebrates life and honors ancestors through a bicultural lens. A mixing of pre-Columbian traditions and Christian belief, the observance has evolved to become recognized worldwide. Join the celebration with family and friends to learn more about this cultural tradition.

South Texas College highlights the work of two recent BFA graduates

South Texas College’s Technology Campus Library Art Gallery proudly presents “Recent BFA Graduates: Mariela Gonzalez and Victoria Zuniga,” a 2-D exhibit of paintings. The exhibit opens Tuesday, September 4 and runs through December 4, 2018. There will be an Q&A and reception on November 15 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Technology Campus Library Art Gallery. The exhibit is located at 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

Mariela Gonzalez and Victoria Zuniga both completed UTRGV’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program in December 2017. Gonzalez and Zuniga both lean towards 2-D work. The technical skill and stories of these students’ progress will be inspiring to current students and public and will give unique insight into a new generation of local professional artists.

Mariela will be exhibiting her 48 pigeon paintings showcasing a different pigeon breed in each one. Each painting measures 8" by 8" and varies in bright colored background. The birds seem to have their own personality, some are big and poufy while others are thin with long legs. Victoria will be exhibiting a collection of paintings portraying porcelain or ball-jointed dolls. They each have an eerie feel to them with their cracked exterior and vacant glares.

    Contact: Cheryl LaBerge   (956) 793-6254   cblaberge@gmail.com
   

The Malpass Brothers don’t just sound retro … they are retro!  Their smooth vocal blend, skillful musicianship, and off-the-cuff quips are reminiscent of many country legends to whom they pay tribute.  The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours, and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to the Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest. Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have shared billing with country music legends like Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more. The title cut video from their album Memory That Bad hit CMT Pure Country’s Top Ten. Their most recent self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads’ Organic Records in 2015.  This will be a wonderful evening of old-time gospel music, songs made famous by Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, and other classic country artists, plus some new Malpass tunes. 

Presented by the nonprofit Harlingen Concert Association, as part of their 2018-19 season.  For info and tickets, visit www.HarlingenConcert.com or call the Harlingen Municipal Auditorium box office at (956) 216-5990.
