Student Capstone 2014

lag-capstoneThe South Texas College Mid-Valley Campus Library presents “Bear Hugs,” featuring the student artwork of Josue Amaro. The exhibit will open Wednesday, April 30, 2014 and continues through May 14 at the Mid-Valley Campus Library (Bldg. E), located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. A reception will be held on April 30 at 6 p.m. at the same location. Admission to both events is free and open to the public.

“With ‘Bear Hugs’ Josue takes what had been small, comical creatures and allows them to expand and roam free, taking over part of STC’s Mid-Valley Campus Library,” said Scott Nicol, STC assistant professor of visual arts. “His oversized characters tower over the visitor, simultaneously inviting and frightening. Do you accept the invitation to hug a smiling, sweaty bear that stands seven feet tall, or keep a safe distance?”

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.
