The South Texas College (STC)  Library Art Gallery has curated an exhibit entitled, “David McGee: New Work” featuring the work of Houston artist David McGee that will be on display until Feb. 25, 2018.

David McGee’s work explores identity and experience. This exhibition features McGee’s large-scale, heavily textured abstract paintings he made during a one-year sabbatical on the Bolivar Peninsula, a remote area near Galveston, and his signature watercolor figurative drawings. McGee recently finished a 20-year retrospective at the Houston Museum of African American Culture.

“My paintings are also heavily influenced by my love of literature and film. I seldom go back and forth from the style of abstract painting to that of the figure, but by all facts and vocabulary, everything is abstract. So the paintings adhere to no stylistic allegiance, but just the emotional weight of what is to be human,” said McGee.

The exhibit is located on the second floor of the STC Pecan Campus Library. The exhibition and lecture are part of the college’s larger annual Black History Month celebration.

The event is free and open to the public.
