Galveston Arts Center presents three new exhibition in conjunction with Galveston ArtWalk, with artist talks.

In the first-floor gallery, Kaneem Smith’s exhibition, "Captive Sojourn and the Indefinite," explores the tumultuous relationship between trade, consumption, and commodities in port cities like Galveston through fiber and found object sculptures and installations.

In the second-floor 1878 Gallery, Renata Lucia uses local and national newspapers manipulated into topographical works on paper to reflect on the widening social divides that unfold in the current news cycle for the exhibition "News vs. Nature (Gulf)."

In the Brown Foundation Gallery, the interactive video work, "Threshold" by Lina Dib, places visitors at the border between land and sea in an effort to explore the dueling forces of humans and the natural world.

Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display until January 13, 2019.
