On The Wings of Angels by Dos Mujeres

PRESS RELEASE:
Brownsville, January 2010- The Old City Cemetery Center, located in the Mitte Cultural District, invites the public to the opening reception of On The Wings of Angels by Dos Mujeres Exhibition on Saturday, February 6, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. The event is free to the public.


The exhibition runs from February 6, 2010 to March 6, 2010.

The exhibition features the work of two South Padre Island artists Beth Fedigan and Dainty Lewis. Their artwork is inspired by the sites, sounds and colors of the South Texas region, including the numerous statues of angels located in the Brownsville Historic City Cemetery.

Fedigan sees art as a form of communication and uses color, form, and line to express her emotions and to draw in her viewers. She feels that if she cannot draw people in from across the room, then she is not doing her job as an artist. Lewis, a former Houston resident, has called South Padre Island her home for the last 23 years. Her relationship with art has been life long and she uses her art to give objects life and beauty. Together, the two women have created an additional line of works they dub dos mujeres. They passed certain pieces back and forth until both felt the piece was done. Thus, they created art that symbolized their long friendship and ultimately the beauty found in such relationships.

The Old City Cemetery Center offers free admission from Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. The Brownsville Historical Association manages the Old City Cemetery Center. For more information on BHA programs and exhibits please call 956-541-5560 or 956-541-1167.
