BROWNVSVILLE, TEXAS - OCTOBER 18, 2013 - The Historic Brownsville Museum presents “Veracity,” a one-man show by Carlos Gomez, Chair and Professor of Visual Arts at The University of Texas at Brownsville.
 
“Verocity” opens at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25. The museum is located at 641 E. Madison Street in Brownsville. Admission is free.
 
Gomez said “Veracity” is a collection of four different bodies of artwork that examines the use of materials and those moments that reveal what is in one’s mind during the creative process.  Each epitomizes the human condition whether social-political, casual reflections, dealing with dreams, or conceptual manifestations of “veracity”.
 
Gómez found his first artistic expression in the “Tex – Mex” culture of the Rio Grande Valley in Brownsville where he was raised.
 
“Brightly colored buildings and the surreal atmosphere of the Mexican border towns gave me the first appreciation of color, line and the generalization that my chosen images would have to be bold and realistic,” said Gómez. 
 
Gomez earned his B.F.A. at Pan American University, now The University of Texas at Pan American and attended Washington State University for his M.F.A. in painting and drawing.  In the course of his studies he went, from an interest in Renaissance style art to a self-ascribed “social-abstract-surrealism” and is currently exploring multi-technique painting and drawing.
 
He has received positive critical reviews from the media where he has presented exhibitions. Aside from exhibiting his work, Gómez is also a very active curator and has curated more than 100 exhibitions.
 
“Veracity” will be on exhibit until Jan. 17, 2014. For information, call 956-548-1313.
