the art gallery in the rusteberg building at UTB presents the human experience
The Gallery in the Rusteberg Building at UTB presents “The Human Experience.” This opening exhibit will display the works of talented, vivid, up-and-coming future UTB graduates: Matthew J. Garcia, Christopher Cerda, and Adriana Cisneros.
The exhibit culminates paintings, photographs, and drawings expressing different aspects of the human experience. Christopher Cerda’s artwork shows a salient use of oil on canvas and colored and graphite pencils, ink, and acrylic on paper depicting prominent MMA fighters in various poses, displaying the “intensity and energy that a fighter emits.” Matthew J. Garcia works with oil on canvas and paper, creating personal narratives full of symbolic meaning with great skill to create a “platform that reflects [his] life and emotional state.” Adriana Cisneros has created a surreal realm in her photographs, displaying a world where the Cyclopes, who are “frail and melancholy beings dealing with the unfair society which has left them secluded” roam the earth,” creating a symbolic icon for depression.
The exhibit will be opening on Monday, April 19, 2010 at 6:30 PM. Please join us on the opening night, where light refreshments will be served, and you will have a chance to meet with the artists. The exhibit will run from April 19 through April 30. General admission is only $1.00.
