Conceptualization, Expression and Feelings

30421_117978241575253_380248_n[1]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.
