Galveston Arts Center presents "Sufer's Beach," "Entanglement", and "Taiguruma Radio Station" opening reception
Galveston Arts Center presents three new exhibitions with artist talks. In the first-floor gallery, Galveston-based artist Dan Schmahl’s exhibition, "Sufer’s Beach," references his favorite surf spot through the re-creation of a life guard stand, photographs, video, and printed materials. In the second-floor 1878 Gallery, the exhibition "Entanglement" features paintings of the undergrowth of forests and tree knots by Joan Laughlin. In the Brown Foundation Gallery, Motoyuki Noguchi and Toshimichi Minagawa of the Taiguruma Revival Project based in Galveston’s sister-city, Niigata, Japan, reintroduce the lost art of Japanese fish cart lanterns through an installation incorporating lanterns and a radio broadcast of messages from visitors to the exhibition "Taiguruma Radio Station."
Artist talks will start at 6:30 pm during the opening reception. After the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view until January 7, 2018.
