A trio of South Texas College Mid-Valley Campus art faculty will present their unique style through artwork that revolves around the themes of art and life during the “Satellite” exhibit that opens on Oct. 14 and runs through Nov. 21 at the STC Pecan Campus Visual Arts Program Gallery (Building B), located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

STC Mid-Valley Campus art instructors Rachael Brown, Ruth Keitz and Scott Nicol have taught together for several years at the college and will showcase their artwork during the Satellite exhibit. A reception will be held on Oct. 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. and an art talk will take place at 3 p.m. on Nov. 14. All events will be held at the Pecan Campus Visual Arts Gallery (B-103), are free and open to the public.

“Each artist will present their own unique artworks that encourage the viewer to contemplate various aspects of life, including the everyday social conditions and environment we live in,” said STC Mid-Valley Campus Art Instructor and Visual Arts Program Gallery Coordinator Rachael Brown.

 A common denominator found in the artwork of the Mid-Valley Campus trio is that each artist uses a variety of media as components in the creation of their current artwork such as found objects, collaged fabrics and appropriated images.

“STC Visual Arts faculty actively model what is expected of a career in the academic arts, that alongside teaching, arts faculty contemplate the current art world and produce artwork,” said Brown. “Faculty exhibits provide students with an idea of an instructor’s areas of expertise and can assist students choose faculty that will help them strengthen their own skills and execution of concepts and compositions.”

The STC Visual Arts and Music department, through excellent teaching and service to the community, promotes an enhanced awareness of the role of art and music in our society. Our purpose is to provide a stimulating environment that encourages lifelong learning, promotes cultural awareness and enriches the quality of life in Hidalgo and Starr counties through performance and study.
