Cinesol and Art
Okay so the art info here you go!
There is a new art exhibtion at The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center in San Benito entitled Telling Our Story: Dichos and Life in South Texas. The show includes Rio Grande Valley artists Philip Field, Jennifer Rodriquez and Benjamin Varela and I was very, very impressed with their work. I wish to could describe it all right now, but their styles and concepts are different from one another's but also run on this parallel theme of defining and celebrating cultural identity, that I would need to take half an hour to give their art any minimal justice and I need to go get ready for work...so all I can say is go, you won't regret it. I really recommend that you go to the see the exhibtion and if you need any information about the center's open hours call (956) 361-0110.
A new gallery has opened in downtown Brownsville called tinSoupArtspace. I was finally able to find it after being mislead to think it was in the Alonso Building or somewhere on St. Charles St., which I was terribly wrong. So I finally just drove around one day after work and saw this red warehouse on St. Frances and I was like, a red warehouse in Brownsville?? Yup, there is artists there, haha! So anyways, the space also houses a graphic design business called Image-Formulaand it's all ran by two brothers who studied art as well. Pretty cool. Right now they have a show up by Valley artist Cande Aquilar, who does these great big giant abstract collages that are incredibly fun to look at. (*fun may not seem like a very appropriate term for art, but for me its fun to look at art and his art is especially fun.) So go check it out!
Here is their contact info: 903 e. St. Francis, Brownsville, Texas 78520, ph: 956.574.0888
Click Here for an article the was in The Herald about the gallery as well.
So go check it and support Valley art!
