David McGee

South Texas College Library Art Gallery presents, "David McGee: New Work".  Join us for an Art Talk and an evening of art refreshments and food.

Houston artist David McGee exhibits at South Texas College
Talk by artist David McGee slated for Feb. 22

MCALLEN, TX– The South Texas College Library Art Gallery has curated an exhibit entitled, “David McGee: New Work” featuring the work of Houston artist David McGee that will be on display until February 25, 2018. The exhibit is located on the second floor of the STC Pecan Campus Library. The exhibition and lecture are part of the college’s larger annual Black History Month celebration.

The Library Art Gallery invites students and the community to a special talk by David McGee on February 22 at the Pecan Library Rainbow Room at 1 p.m.

The talk will be followed by a reception from 5 – 7 PM in the Library Art Gallery. The Pecan Campus Library is located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd., Bldg. F in McAllen, Texas. All events are free and open to the public.

“My work is an attempt to reset the irregularities between language and image, to reroute the labeling system thus refocusing the body politic to reassess the abstraction of word versus image or the abuse of language and the misdirection of image,” said David McGee. “My paintings also heavily influenced by my love of literature and film. I seldom go back and forth from the style of abstract painting to that of the figure, but by all facts and vocabulary, everything is abstract. So the paintings adhere to no stylistic allegiance, but just the emotional weight of what is to be human.”

David McGee is a Houston-based artist whose work explores identity and experience. This exhibition features McGee’s large-scale, heavily textured abstract paintings he made during a one-year sabbatical on the Bolivar Peninsula, a remote area near Galveston, and his signature watercolor figurative drawings. McGee recently finished a twenty-year retrospective at the Houston Museum of African American Culture.

STC’s Library Art Gallery exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.

     100 Women, 100 Words exhibition  
    Contact: Gina Otvos    956-872-3488   gotvos@southtexascollege.edu
   

100 Women, 100 Words, is an exhibition intended to honor South Texas Women. The idea began in 2002 as a Women's History Project at McMurry University by Dr. Christina Wilson, Dean of Art and Letters and Jennifer Nichols, Gallery Director.

 In the Rio Grande Valley, a tremendous number of women have made and continue to make a difference in our community through their generosity and dedication. The participants are native and non-native to the RGV and include educators, business owners, community activists, and artists. Their contributions through their work, community service, and philanthropy positively impacts literacy and education, the arts, social causes, and the environment in the Valley. The best part is the list of 100 + participants was made by recommendations from all the women we are honoring.

 This exhibition shares the visual and literal story these women have to tell.

The Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library announces the return of the Big Read Program with the help of The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley who has received a grant to host the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read program. 

The NEA Big Read scheduled for March, broadens one’s understanding of the world, their communities, and themselves through the joy of sharing a good book. This year, The Big Read in Edinburg will focus on the novel Ways of Going Home by Alejandro Zambra.

On Wednesday, January 24, Big Read Book Discussion Leaders received complimentary copies of this year’s book selection. The book distribution took place at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library. Dr. Steven Schneider, Creative Writing Professor at UTRGV, introduced this year’s book selection.

Book discussion groups and other Big Read activities will take place during March, including a presentation by Alejandro Zambra who will discuss his book on Thursday, March 1 at noon in the Shary Room at the UTRGV Library in Edinburg. 

Dr. Schneider says, “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.”

Library & Cultural Arts Director, Leticia Leija says the Big Read has always been a popular program in Edinburg. “This year we hope to continue the excitement generated by the shared experience of reading the same book, as we jointly read and discuss Ways of Going Home. This book is sure to engage our community in vivid book discussions.”

Through the coordination of the Edinburg library, various book groups will be meeting to discuss the book in various libraries and schools throughout Starr and Hidalgo County.”

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

100 Women, 100 Words, is an exhibition intended to honor South Texas Women. The idea began in 2002 as a Women's History Project at McMurry University by Dr. Christina Wilson, Dean of Art and Letters and Jennifer Nichols, Gallery Director.

 In the Rio Grande Valley, a tremendous number of women have made and continue to make a difference in our community through their generosity and dedication. The participants are native and non-native to the RGV and include educators, business owners, community activists, and artists. Their contributions through their work, community service, and philanthropy positively impacts literacy and education, the arts, social causes, and the environment in the Valley. The best part is the list of 100 + participants was made by recommendations from all the women we are honoring.

 This exhibition shares the visual and literal story these women have to tell.

Journey West, A Migration of Melody

TICKETS

Showtimes

Journey West is a musical program chronicling the migration of melody through an interactive multi-media performance. The musical performance is a high-energy dynamic virtuosic display of multi-instrumental talent. Journey West tracks melodies and changing instrumentation beginning in the Middle East, traveling through Eastern to Western Europe, ultimately arriving in the United States. The program illustrates the primary factors in carrying melodies to distant lands: wars, imperialism, nomadic dispersions, mass emigrations due to political oppression, and musical crazes that sweep the globe.

Spring migration is the most colorful time of the year for birds. Songbirds that spent their winter in the tropics of Mexico, Central America, and South America begin to make the long journey back to their breeding grounds. Fortunately for us, many of them pass through the Lower Rio Grande Valley! This spring phenomena attracts hundreds of bird watchers every year, as they hope to see the diversity of vireos, warblers, buntings, orioles, and more that flock to our woodlands.
DID YOU KNOW?  Over 50 species of warbler, vireo, tanager, and oriole migrate through the Valley, along with many other migratory birds. You will learn how and why birds migrate, where to look for them, and how to identify spring songbirds.
