Mayjoring in Art; Higher Learning
May 4 - May 26, 2018
Reception: May 4, 2018; 6 - 9pm
“Mayjoring in Art; Higher Learning” is a juried exhibition with the mission of celebrating the creativity and ingenuity of emerging young artists from colleges and universities around Texas. All artists participating must be currently enrolled in an institution of higher learning or have graduated with in the last 6 months. This year's juror is Daniel Blagg.
Two students will be selected to have a two person exhibition in one of our galleries during Fall Gallery Night 2018. Fall Gallery Night is an event that occurs once a year during September. It is arguably our most popular opening of year were we anticipate more than 3000 visitors in a single night.
ABOUT THE JUROR: Daniel Blagg’s latest work includes his stylistically flat and dilapidated representational scenes of what were once gleaming signs of commercialism rendered with an abundance of metaphorical comments on all aspects of contemporary society. The Neon Museum in Las Vegas is a repository for the iconic neon signage that made the city famous and has been the subject matter of Daniel Blagg’s paintings for years.
