Exhibitions on view January 14th – February 26th at Galveston Arts Center
Galveston Arts Center (GAC) presents two solo exhibitions opening Saturday, January 14th, 6-9pm with artist talks beginning at 6:30pm.
In the downstairs gallery, “Guts and Bone” by Jonathan Leach utilizes hard edge painting techniques to conform and control the fluidity of internal and external references in paintings and sculpture.
In both upstairs galleries, “Personal Scapes: Recent Prints” by Luisa Duarte includes a series of abstract geometric monotypes, digital prints, and small sculptures.
In addition, “Beyond Bindings: The Book as Art” will be on view in the upstairs Pop-Up Gallery.
Jonathan Leach focuses on finding balance between internal and external influences in his exhibition “Guts and Bone.” Inspired by city and suburban landscapes, Leach’s paintings and sculptures explore how architecture, advertising, and icons interact with one another, using line and color to create movement and tension. His most recent works reflect on his personal navigation of thought and incorporate light and shadow to create depth and a sense of space.
Born in Venezuela, Luisa Duarte is a visual artist who lives in Houston, Texas and has extensive ties to Latin America. With her formal training in architecture, Luisa found early inspiration in the geometric abstraction movement, all of which is loosely referenced in her work. Her exhibition “Personal Scapes,” includes a series of monotypes, digital prints, and small sculptures.
The galleries and the ArtWorks Museum Store are open to the public Tuesday-Saturday 11am-5pm, and Sunday 12 noon-5pm. Admission is free at all times. GAC is located at 2127 Strand St., (409)763-2403.
GAC is the organizer of ArtWalk, which takes place every six weeks in downtown Galveston.
