RECEPTION:

Friday, July 1 from 5 - 7pm

During First Friday ArtWalk

Patricia, originally from Izucar de Matamoros, Puebla, Mexico, moved to Texas in 2009 following the death of her father.  As a small child she enjoyed making clay figurines and over time progressed to becoming a full time artist.  As young as age 7, she was learning the unique intricacies of working with clay.  Patricia comes from a long line of artists and teachers that instructed and guided her through her artistic journey.  Her style is primarily traditional folk art, reflective of her cultural heritage that her beloved father Alfonso passed on to its now fifth generation.  The familial style of artwork has been in her family for more than 200 years, talk about tradition.  Patricia’s aim is to unite different communities through the celebration of common culture in her art.  She is inspired by nature and ancient glyphs, while combining her traditional ancestral style with new and modern aspects that are representative of current times.  Patricia has exhibited her work in many different galleries, often participating in art events that allow her to interact with people and share the story behind each piece.  She shares her work on her Facebook, Patricia Castillo Art.  Come check out the beautiful, intricate and cultural art that has been honed over a span of 5 generations.

KATHY
LINDSEY-O'NEILL

Pastel animals.

IN THE GALLERY:
July 1 - 30, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, July 1 from 5 - 7pm

During First Friday ArtWalk

Kathy, a long-time resident of Corpus Christi, is originally from San Antonio. She has been interested in art for as long as she can remember. Inspired early in life by watching Bob Ross and Jerry Yarnell on PBS, she always knew she wanted to be an artist just like them. Kathy took a few art classes in school but is primarily self-taught.  She subscribes to the motto that practice is the best teacher!  Kathy started off her career in landscapes, but around 7 years ago she shifted her focus and started specializing in wildlife art.  A lover of animals, it only felt natural for her to use them as her subjects.  She started out with birds and expanded from there, quickly realizing that the big cats are her favorite (and we can’t argue there). Her mediums are primarily pastel, oil and gouache but you can catch her trying new things every now and then.

Annual robes display.


IN THE GALLERY:
May 11 - June 1, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Thursday, May 12 from 5 - 7pm

The Court of Resplendent Nature

Started in 1954 by a group of community minded women, Las Doñas de la Corte was formed to add a social component and promotional aspect to the annual Buccaneer Days celebration.  The pageant honors local and out-of-town families, and in keeping with tradition, Duchesses are often second, third or fourth generation participants.  Each year, a different theme and designer is carefully chosen and is reflected in the  elegant gowns and trains.  This year, "The Court of Resplendent Nature" was the theme carried out by artist & designer David Phillips.  A year long process, the families work closely with the designers to create thoughtful and unique gowns that are as intricate as they are beautiful.  The gowns are worn by the Duchesses for the Coronation and Buccaneer Illuminated Night Parade, and then brought to the Art Center to be on display for the month to be enjoyed and admired by all.  Learn more about this time honored tradition in "A History of Las Doñas" on display in our Lockett Gallery or by visiting their website HERE. The magnificent gowns and trains are a must see in person, stop by our galleries to admire the beauty and striking craftmanship.

STUDENTS

Selections.

 

IN THE GALLERY:
May 6 - June 1 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, May 6 from 5 - 7pm
During ArtWalk

The Art Center frequently offers exhibit opportunities to students who are required to publicly exhibit their artwork through their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program.  "Selections" is one of those exhibits featuring the work of three students from the Department of Art at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi.  The student artists are: Christopher Jansse, Rianna Kirkham & Teres Priour.

Christopher: "This body of work is intended to emphasize the importance of humor to the human experience.  I consider this work to be a sort of Absurd Repentance; I am essentially repenting for something considered to be morally just, butchery and ritual slaughter."

Rianna, Send in the Clowns:  "The imagery in this body of work is a reflection of my exhaustion with the games we play and characters we portray to successfully function in society.  I invite viewers to reflect upon the ways we are expected to present ourselves and how damaging it can be to maintain these facades."

Teresa, Gynaika: "This body of work is my visual rejection of the box we are put in from birth, and an angered stance against the way women have been objectified, disrespected, and treated as sub-human in everyday society."

SCENES OF SPRING

IN THE GALLERY:
April 1 - 30, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, April 1 from 5 - 7pm
During ArtWalk

Scenes of Spring is an exhibit we can all look forward to after the *cold* weather we have had; commemorating the warming weather, return of all things green, and budding flowers.  This is one of many new exhibit themes, in an ever rotating group with the goal of providing artists inspiration to create outside their wheel house with perhaps a new subject matter, medium, or inspiration.

STILL LIFE
All mediums.  

 

IN THE GALLERY:
April 1 - 30, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, April 1 from 5 - 7pm
During ArtWalk

A still life is an arrangement of a variety of natural and man-made elements placed such that it inspires the viewer to reflect; perhaps on the celebration of life or maybe the fragile and ephemeral state of our existence. This non-juried exhibit was an opportunity to display an individual's take on the classic still life genre painting.  Similar to Scenes of Spring, this is a new theme aiming to push artists to do something new or even, return to something old.

RECEPTION:

Friday, March 4 from 5 - 7pm
During ArtWalk

We started this now annual exhibit at a time when we felt we needed to offer artists another opportunity to exhibit that was open to anything and anyone- after the pandemic hit in 2020.  We asked the question: "What have you been up to Coastal Bend?".  We wanted to see what artists had done during lockdown with new outlooks, emotions and hobbies.  The Coastal Bend answered and answered well, so now it's an annual exhibit that gives all artists an opportunity to show whatever they have been working on.

RECEPTION:

Friday, March from 5 - 7pm

During ArtWalk

“As a traditionally trained artist, I am concerned with capturing the changing light and forces of nature.  Of particular interest  are the skies of coastal and central Texas especially those in the early morning and evenings as they present more dramatic and color and value contrast. I have come to thing of the skies as being much like life itself in that they are always in motion and constantly changing.”

“In judging this show, I am reminded that fine art communicates the times of its creation in a far-reaching way.

KATE WORD
"Portals: Exploring Circles"
All Membership 2021 
BEST OF SHOW WINNER


IN THE GALLERY:
January 7 - February 19, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, Jan 7 from 5 - 7pm

"PORTALS suggest mystery or suspense and imply a search. Google defines a portal as “gateway, pathway, or passage,” among other things, and this show is an expression of my personal portal experience. A portal can be one’s sense of wonder, a relationship, career, book, podcast, or a conversation, and that’s why music can so easily transport one to another place or time. The most important understanding of PORTALS that I desire my viewer to take away from this exhibit is to realize that they themselves are a “portal” for someone else whether a parent, spouse, child, sibling, coworker, friend or stranger. Never underestimate the power of one individual to change another human life."

JILL CONWILL
"Vivid Designs" 
Colorful inks. 

 


IN THE GALLERY:
January 7 - February 19, 2022

 

RECEPTION:

Friday, Jan 7 from 5 - 7pm

Jill made stained glass for twenty-five years. She was a nurse for 50 years so stained glass was part time until she retired in 2015. In 2019 she had to have a total shoulder replacement and stained glass would have to wait. Her neighbor Trudy Kenyon mentioned alcohol ink painting as an alternative. She taught Jill how to use the inks to make amazing paintings. Jill played around with the inks but the abstract art wasn't her passion. So after several hours watching YouTube videos Jill finally found her passion painting animals, sea life and flowers. She especially loves capturing the personality of the animals.
