Evolution of the Soul

IMG_0344crSouth Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery presents “Evolution of the Soul: Works by Pablo Peña,” an exhibit featuring paintings by Pablo Peña. The exhibit opens Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 with an artist talk held at 6 p.m., and will be on view through Friday, Dec. 4. The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

Peña is a professional artist and native of Weslaco. Although he has experimented in working with a wide array of mediums including stained glass, copper sculpture and jewelry, the central element of his work is vibrant color.

His dynamic surrealist landscapes are bursting with vivacious color, extraordinary figures and symbolism. When beginning a new piece, Peña chooses colors that personify his mood.

“Pablo Peña’s artwork is a celebration and testament to his successful use of color,” said STC Library Art Gallery Associate Dawn Haughey. “While his skill in color usage and blending is truly spectacular, he is also able to ignite a variety of emotions through his bold style. This exhibition is sure to speak to a very large audience.”

STC’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.
