LSC-Montgomery Art Gallery Starts off Fall Schedule With the Works of Mark Greenwalt

Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery starts off its fall schedule with “Surface Time,” an exhibit by Mark Greenwalt, on display August 25 to September 26 in the gallery, which is located in the college’s Performing Arts Center (Building D).
 
The community is invited to a meet-and-greet reception with the artist on Monday, September 22, at noon, in the same location. The reception is free, and refreshments will be served.
 
Greenwalt’s exhibit will showcase drawings of various media, accumulating thousands of marks in stratified layers, depicting human-like images portrayed in cycles consistent with growth and decay in a creative process.
 
Greenwalt expressed in his artist statement on his website that the images, whether executed with graphite or paint, on paper or panel, are all considered ‘drawing’ in that the various forms and figures are found imagery, the result of continuously evolving possibilities seeking to transcend predictable and deterministic outcomes.
 
He also added that metaphorically similar to fishing or farming, a drawing is a surface from which imagery is extracted.  For himself, a drawing is the abstract mind externalized, released into the concrete limitations of a given medium.
 
Greenwalt received his master of arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University, and completed his master of fine arts degree from The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. He currently teaches at The College of the Mainland in Texas City, Texas.
 
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.
 
Fong Chau, program coordinator for theatre/fine arts at LSC-Montgomery, is very excited to have this exhibit at the college.
 
“I know it’s going to provide a very different style to the students and the community that they are not used to seeing,” Chau states.
