LSC-Tomball Art Gallery to Display Professor's Work

Published on: March 25, 2011

“Waxing and Waning,” an art exhibition featuring the works of artist Steffani Frideres, is on display at the LSC-Tomball art gallery through May 15. The pieces featured in this showcase are altered photographic images which the artist describes as “made, not taken.”

The collection illustrates Frideres’ internal reflections and memories.

“Like a slightly fogged or soft-focus photograph, these waxed images are reminiscent of another time and place,” she said.

The title of the exhibit, “Waxing and Waning,” refers to the techniques Frideres used to transform the images.

“It’s a labor-intensive process that take time, and more time,” she said.

Originally from Canada, Frideres of Spring has exhibited nationally and internationally for over 20 years. This artist, who is also an art professor at LSC-Tomball, enjoys working in alternative photographic media.

Open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the LSC-Tomball art gallery is free and open to the public. The gallery lies next to the Beckendorf Conference Center, located off State Highway 249 and Zion Road.
