Virtuosa BannerSouth Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery presents “Virtuosa,” an exhibit featuring paintings by Gaby Rico. The exhibit opens Thursday, Sept. 24 with an artist lecture at 6 p.m. and will be on view through Dec. 10, 2012 at the Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

“Gaby Rico’s work is a delicate balance between the real and the abstract,” said STC Library Art Gallery Associate Gina Otvos. “While her skill in color usage and blending is truly spectacular, she is also able to ignite a variety of emotions through her bold style. This exhibition is sure to speak to a very large audience.”golden present
