Galveston Arts Center presents "Night and Day" and "Exchange Rate" opening reception
Galveston Arts Center presents "Night and Day," a solo exhibition by Austin-based artist Erin Curtis. Curtis’ exhibition includes recent large-scale paintings that are dense with color and pattern. Her layered, cut-canvas works contain disrupted surfaces and reflect an interest in geometric abstraction and its historical roots in weaving, architecture, nature, and ritual. The paintings in "Night and Day" are nearly overwhelmed by an unreadable chaos that is pulled back to the edge of order by familiar patterns and forms. The "Night and Day" exhibit will be on display until November 17.
In GAC’s second-floor galleries, the exhibition "Exchange Rate" features the works of Corey Ackelmire, Mike Beradino, Rene Cruz, Kevin Curry, Kathy Hall, Mary Jeys, Virginia Lee Montgomery, Ken Little, Deborah Mersky, Phillip Pyle II, Dan Tague, The Art Guys, and Anthony Thompson Shumate who incorporate currency in their work as material and subject matter. The "Exchange Rate" exhibit will be on display until October 6.
