The Art Gallery at Collin College will host “Looking for Signs,” paintings and mixed-media artworks by Venezuelan-born artist and professor Romulo Martinez, from Jan. 18-Feb. 25. The exhibition, curated by Julie Shipp, is free and open to the public.
A reception is planned in the gallery for Thursday, Jan. 27, from 4-8 p.m. An artist interview will take place Thursday, Feb. 3, beginning at noon in the gallery.
The solo exhibition consists of original artworks divided into three concepts: Looking for Signs (communication), Caught by Color (statements about “emotional palettes”), and Portrayed Circumstances (a personal journey). Brightly-hued canvases are pieced together to form a variety of cultural personalities, while colors appear to have exploded onto the walls, reflecting the artist’s own feelings and experiences.
The Art Gallery is located at Collin College’s Plano Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Room A175, in Plano. The gallery’s hours are Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Visit www.collin.edu/department/artsgallery for more information.
