South Texas College Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery Get Directions

“The Skies of Texas are Upon You,” an exhibit featuring paintings by Jerry Lyles, will be on display at STC’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery from Sep. 6 to Oct. 30, 2010. On Thursday, Sep. 23, an art talk will be held at 2:30 p.m. at STC’s Mid-Valley Campus Library, Bldg. E located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Immediately following the art talk, a reception will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Admission to all events is free and open to the public.

Jerry Lyles is an assistant professor of art at The University of Texas-Pan American where he teaches drawing and painting. Lyles received his Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the American University in Washington, D.C.

His current series of paintings are derived from an observation of his surrounding environment with a concentration on the relationship between the land and the ever-present sky. Lyles is also inspired by the re-occurring color patterns that rhythmically exist within the landscape, but are yet constantly in flux.

STC’s Library Art Gallery Program exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.For more information contact Sofia K.
