The Arnold Art Gallery in Mason is hosting Jeremiah Ibarra beginning with a meet and greet opening Friday evening 5 to 7:00pm on November 1.
The artist is an aspiring artist and graduate at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. Originally from San Angelo, Texas, Jeremiah began painting and sculpting as a teenager. Following high school, Jeremiah continued his artistic career at Angelo State University.
As an artist, Jeremiah creates works in a variety of styles ranging from clay sculptures to highly-detailed post-cards. As a keen observer of human behavior and interesting combinations, he enjoys making unique collages depicting objects, city maps, animals, and abstract drawings carefully arranged on post-cards. Jeremiah has an affinity with objects. He’s interested in the mundane and everyday objects that we often take for granted.
Ibarra describes his method as “drawing on paper and on clay” and “with paper and clay... and graphite.” He says that he also “draws with water and wet things... fingers and clay tools. I draw ideas from people and from animals, and from objects, everyday objects, and not so everyday objects. I draw from my family and friends. I draw from stories, both true, and fictional stories. I draw from quiet things. I draw what I think are quiet things.”
Don’t miss this exhibit of the Ibarra’s seriously playful ceramics, drawings and sculptures that will continue through December 4th at the Arnold Art Gallery. It is located at 118 Fort McKavitt across the Courthouse in Mason.
The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday 9:00-5:30. For more information, call 325-247-6272 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
