Don’t Miss “Be Yourself – Speak Your Mind” FotoFest Exhibition This Spring

Lone Star College-CyFair features photography artist Gary Watson as part of the Houston Fotofest 2018 Biennial exhibition on display this spring.

LSC-CyFair’s Bosque Gallery is one of the participating spaces in this critically acclaimed international contemporary photography exhibition.

From the theater of public demonstrations to personal declarations of self-identify, Watson’s spring exhibition “Be Yourself – Speak Your Mind: The Art of Self-Expression” looks at the art of activism and the activism of art.

Watson’s work will be on display March 6 through April 12 in the Center for the Arts building on the LSC-CyFair campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.

"Freedom of Assembly" by Gary Watson

This Houston artist says he does not know why he takes pictures, only that he must,” said James Campbell, LSC-CyFair Gallery Coordinator. “Watson’s ideas become performances played out for public consumption, proclaiming ‘This is who I am, this is what I believe.’”

In this exhibition, diverse styles of documentary, allegorical and personal photography create both observational and declarative statements to provide a catalyst for emotional responses, thoughtful discussion and positive action.

Watson’s photos address mature themes such as emotional and physical aspects of aging, freedom of assembly and the story of a transgender woman.

Come meet Watson at a March 22 reception from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. that includes an artist talk at 6:30 p.m. and features musical interludes with LSC-CyFair Professor Brian Herrington’s students.

Another opportunity to visit with this artist will be at the Tea + Art + Talk event from 1:30 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.  April 3.
