“Red on Red” is one of the many images in Darryl Patrick’s collection from Italy on display in LSC-Montgomery’s Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery through December 10.Lone Star College-Montgomery's Center for the Arts presents The Silent Voice of Italy, featuring the artwork of Darryl Patrick. The collection will be on display November 17 through December 10 in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery (Building D). On Tuesday, November 17, from 1-3 p.m., there will be a reception in the gallery to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.

Patrick’s collection spans over four years and reflects the impact of space, the geometry of ancient stone, and the silent voice of history.

“The images are timeless to our eyes,” explained Patrick. “They contain the imprint of another age, one in which a patina of golden light reveals and hides the mystic of Italy.”

Patrick received his Ph.D. in art history from North Texas State University and is currently teaching at Texas State University in San Marcos.

The Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery is a teaching gallery at LSC-Montgomery, and the presentations and artwork provided are free to the community. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
