LSC-Kingwood's exhibition “Intervals” explores cross cultural artists

Lone Star College-Kingwood’s art society invites members of the community to view its next exhibition, “Intervals” Oct. 14-Nov. 14 in the college’s Fine Arts Gallery.

“Intervals” is timed to coincide with International Education Week, Nov. 15-18, and will offer the perspectives of six cross cultural artists whose paintings, prints, sculpture and text will be on view.

“The rapprochement of cultures offers different ways to look at the world through the prism of these cultures and through the prism of Art. It offers the possibility to discover, to connect, and to grow when there was nothing before at the crossroads of these cultures. It offers you a broader perspective on life, like a menu in which you can taste this or that. This menu is filled with life possibilities and potentialities,” said Karine Parker Lemoyne, one of “Intervals” artists.

Featured artists are Vachu Chilakamarri, Karine Parker Lemoyne, Rahul Mitra, Kay Nguyen, Mari Omori and Rolando Reyna. The exhibition will have a reception on Friday, Oct. 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. with guest speakers Karine Parker Lemoyne and Kay Nguyen. On Monday, Oct. 25, Lemoyne and Rolando Reyna will speak at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

“In seeking out highest quality work for this exhibit, I specifically looked for artists who have had the benefits of travel and education, both here and outside the United States and who could share their life experiences with students,” said Kris Larson, LSC-Kingwood’s art gallery director.

Lone Star College-Kingwood is located at 20000 Kingwood Drive. The Fine Arts Gallery is in the Student Fine Arts Building. All gallery events are free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information on “Intervals” or on the Fine Arts Gallery, call 281-312-1534.
