STC’s Library Art Gallery celebrates its history with two exhibits from the Permanent Art Collection

The South Texas College Library Art Gallery celebrates eight years of building the college’s Permanent Art Collection with two special exhibits at its Technology and Mid-Valley Campuses. The exhibit opens Thursday, June 11, 2015, and will be on view through Friday, August 7, 2015. The Technology Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen, and the Mid-Valley Art Gallery is located at 400 N Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

The exhibit features works of art that have been donated to South Texas College from 2008 to 2015, by various artists who have exhibited at one of the college’s five library art galleries throughout the Rio Grande Valley in Hidalgo and Starr counties.

“It’s always interesting to be able to bring together our donated works of art into one exhibit,” said Max Garcia, STC library specialist. “It creates a type of visual timeline of what we have exhibited over the years. We are always grateful for all of our amazing donations and are happy to share them with each South Texas College campus so that everyone has a chance to enjoy them.”

The South Texas College 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.
