UTB/TSC "Tex-Mex" Photography Exhibition
When: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday, July 14
Where: The Art Gallery in Rusteberg Hall at the University of Texas at Brownsville
The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College will host an opening for the TEX-MEX Photography Exhibition from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday, July 14, at the Art Gallery in Rusteberg Hall.
The exhibit will run through Saturday, July 26.
The exhibition will feature 16 UTB/TSC photography students, as well as 60 analog photographs that focus on the way of life along the Rio Grande.
“It seemed like a natural fit,” said Exhibition Curator Brad Doherty, referring to the TEX-MEX theme. “This year’s exhibition should measure up to last year’s.”
The exhibition will combine the cultures of Texas and Mexico and showcase the unique culture that lies along the border. Images range from portraits, landscapes, local architecture, cars and food that capture the essence of local living.
“It is in the blending of these differences, great or small, where things become exceptionally visually interesting,” said Doherty.
Last year’s theme was “El Centro,” which showcased the downtown Brownsville surroundings.
Admission is $1 and there is free for all art major students.
The gallery’s hours are Monday to Thursday from 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – noon.

TAOB Note: For those wanting a visual taste of life on the border, then this show is your treat. It's always interesting to see local sights and happenings documented through photography into visual art. To the visitor, it gives perspective into a different culture and for the native, it helps see the everyday and mundane from a fresh perspective. Either way, there's something everybody can take away from this show and you are also supporting local art students!
