Art Reception Tonight

The first art exhibit and reception for the Texas A&M International University 2006/2007 school year, “Vincent Valdez: Stations” opens tonight from 5:30 – 8 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. It will be on display through Nov. 30.

Gallery hours of operation are from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

“Stations” is a series of large-scale charcoal drawings by the San Antonio native. His series of drawings uses boxing as a metaphor for life and growing up and refers to the Stations of the Cross of Christ’s Passion in the tradition of Renaissance artist Giotto and modern and contemporary artists Pablo Picasso and Stanley Spenser.

Valdez’ work has been on display in San Antonio at the McNay Art Museum and Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center and as far as Snite Museum of Art in Notre Dame University. His work has also been a part of selected group exhibitions on display in Los Angeles, Copenhagen, Denmark, Chicago and Washington D.C.
