Eduardo Ibarra is a Brownsville born artist who studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and spent his summer breaks in New York City . After completing his degree, he lived and worked in New York City for over a year. Ibarra’s works have been displayed in various exhibitions around the nation and has even had his paintings displayed in the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. Ibarra is back in Brownsville and is currently teaching at Vela Middle School.
Eduardo Ibarra has sometimes been compared to Robert Colescott. Both artists began by balancing the demands of junior high teaching with a passion for the act of painting. Both integrate humor with an appreciation of traditional works.
Eduardo Ibarra latest works will be on display October 2nd, 2007 through October 18th, 2007 at the Richardson Art Gallery in the Art Building at the University of Texas at Brownsville . The opening reception will start October 2nd at 6:30 P.M. Admission is $3.00. Semester passes are available for all UTB students for $5.00. Admission is free to all Patron of the Arts members.
For my upcoming show at the University of Texas at Brownsville , I will explore the idea of subject matter in Art History by combining images that cause the viewer to question the idea of traditional subject matter and style in art.
As part of the new series that will be presented, I will also expand on the idea of viewing work in a gallery by creating a link on the actual paintings. With the link, the viewers will later be able to see the images on their computers in the comfort of their own homes.
