Lone Star College-Montgomery’s art department and the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery welcome artist Merrie Wright and her exhibit Dazzle on Dry Land, on display June 3 through June 28 in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery, located in the Performing Arts Center (Building D). The show will feature ceramic sculpture, installations, and photographs of site-specific works.
The community is invited to a reception on Monday, June 3, at noon, in the same location. The reception is free and refreshments will be served.
Merrie Wright’s “Dazzle Rabbits” is one of several sculptures included in the exhibit Dazzle on Dry Land, on display June 3-28 at Lone Star College-Montgomery.
After teaching at several universities, Wright has settled into her own studio in east Texas. She continues to teach as an art professor at the University of Texas at Tyler. She exhibits her works nationally, has curated many ceramic-based exhibitions, and does workshops and lectures for universities, art centers, and galleries.
“Merrie’s work on ceramic sculpture is often of a specific nature,” said Charles “Robby” Wood, art professor at LSC-Montgomery. “Her work is unique and creative. I’ve been wanting to show her work here for a long time.”
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.
