OwlsSouth Texas College’s Nursing and Allied Health Campus Library presents “Harmony,” an exhibit featuring digital artworks by Rolando D. Garza. The exhibit opens Thursday, June 19, 2014 and will be on view through Friday, Aug. 8. An artist talk will be held on July 3 at 3:30 p.m. at the college’s NAH Campus, located at 1101 E. Vermont Ave. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

Garza’s playful digital works are greatly influenced by science fiction, geometry, nature, movies and music. He says that his art is constantly evolving and believes that by promoting the arts he will help make the Valley a more beautiful place.

“Garza’s work is fresh, bold and fun,” said Dawn Haughey, STC Library Art Gallery associate. “Whether we realize it or not, digital art is a huge part of our everyday lives. We see it everywhere we go, on billboards, the internet, even on packaged food items. It is important to exhibit digital artwork, as well as more traditional painted or photographed works, so that it can be appreciated and recognized as a true art form.”

Garza received a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Texas-Pan American. His background includes work in engineering, computer science, psychology, sculpture and art.

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.
