A quartet of artists meet to share unique visions through painting, sculpture, and installation work at Lone Star College-Kingwood’s art exhibit, “Intervals 2013”.
Maria Cristina Jadick, Tudor Mitroi, Nicola Parente and Masaru Takiguchi will display recent works in the college’s Fine Arts Gallery from Oct. 10 to Nov. 6. An open house with refreshments will be held on Oct. 12 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the gallery, followed by four artist talks on Oct. 17 from 12:30-2 p.m.
“We are excited to display work by highly respected artists/educators,” said Kris Larson, gallery director. “‘Intervals coincides with U.S. Citizenship Week’s city-wide ceremonies and celebrations. What better time to see art that addresses opportunities found here, where yesterday's dream and today's choice meet.”
About the artists:
Jadick is a Cuban-American artist who combines photography, video, printmaking techniques, found materials, and installation to create work that poses questions about human socio-political, spiritual, and economic concerns. Among her credits are interdisciplinary studies in art and social sciences at the Transart Foundation-Houston, The Glassell School in Houston, Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Johns Hopkins University- School of Advanced International Studies- Washington, D.C., and Gettysburg College, in Gettysburg.
Italian born artist Parente expands on his previous “Edge of Awakening” series, bringing fresh paintings to LSC-Kingwood’s gallery space. His solo museum exhibitions include the Manuel Felguerez Museum of Abstract Art in Zacatecas, Mexico in 2012 and the Seranade Art House in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Parente’s works can be found in public and private collections in Ethiopia, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the United States.
Mitroi integrates cultural traditions of Romania with the American artistic experience. His paintings, based on maps, rulers, documentary images, and humble items from the daily environment, explore personal geographies and the relative concepts of time and place. Born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, Mitroi earned a Diploma de Licenta from the Universitatea de Arte in Bucharest and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Texas in Denton.
Sculptor Takiguchi, of Osaka, Japan, has won numerous awards in competitions in Europe, Asia and the United States, including the AIA Award of Excellence from Rice University in Houston. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections, including the University of Houston Public Art Collection and Blaffer Gallery. He earned both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Arts degree in sculpture from Kyoto City College of Fine Arts in Japan.
