Emerging Artists: New Additions to the Collection

Technology Campus ExhibitSouth Texas College spotlights emerging artists
STC’s Library Art Gallery celebrates new additions to the college’s Permanent Art Collection with an exhibit that features new artists in Texas (and one from California). The exhibit will be on view at the Technology Campus June 5 through August 11, 2017. The STC Technology Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

The exhibit features works by artists who have exhibited and donated within the last two years at one of the college’s four library art galleries throughout the Rio Grande Valley in Hidalgo and Starr counties. Artists include Coco Rico, Xavier Perez, Manny Chapa, Xochi Solis, Jessie Rodriguez, Conrado Gonzalez, and Jesse Burciaga.

“It’s always interesting to be able to bring together our donated works of art into one exhibit,” said Max Garcia, South Texas College Librarian. “It creates a type of visual timeline of what we have exhibited. I’m excited to see the connections we see with these new artists.”

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.
