LSC-Montgomery Presents A Commemorative Exhibit Entitled “An Artist’s Journey”

The commemorative exhibit entitled “An Artist’s Journey,” on display April 5-29 at LSC-Montgomery, was created to portray the relationship between physical and spiritual life.Lone Star College-Montgomery's Center for the Arts presents the artwork of Robert McGehee, founding faculty member of Lone Star College-CyFair and professor of visual arts, who passed away one year ago.
 
The memorial exhibition titled “An Artist’s Journey” will be on display April 5-29. An opening reception with refreshments will take place on Tuesday, April 6, from 12-2 p.m., in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery (Building D).

McGehee’s work symbolizes the relationship between cellular (physical) life and spiritual existence. Cellular life consists of health, disease, pain, passion, age and life cycles. Spiritual essence includes love, hate, suffering, joy and determination. The co-mingling of these two states is expressed through his work, and this exhibit will evoke a feeling of life and regeneration.
 
The 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.
