Galveston Arts Center presents Amber Eagle: "Nap Dreams" opening reception
Amber Eagle’s exhibition features multi-media works inspired by devotional, celebratory, and folk-art practices found throughout Mexico and the Southern United States. Eagle employs the ephemera of pageantry, ritual celebrations, and adornments often used to celebrate personal and historical events in her work.
Influenced by her extensive experience spent between Mexico and Texas, Eagle creates narratives that are inspired by the role of the feminine in Mexican myths and folklore. Cake decorations, party favors, fireworks, prize ribbons, and trophies are represented in an evolving narrative translated through the artist’s personal experience living between two cultures.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 23, 2020.
