TCC Announces Spring Visual Arts Exhibits

FORT WORTH, Texas (Feb. 12, 2016) Art enthusiasts will have a broad variety of visual arts exhibits and workshops to attend this spring at Tarrant County College.
Internationally known artist Salvador Jiménez-Flores will lead a hands-on ceramic workshop on transfer techniques on clay at the Northeast Campus, 828 Harwood Road, NFAB 130, Hurst. The class is March 30 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A potluck reception, exhibition and artist talk will immediately follow the workshop in the Northeast Campus J. Ardis Bell Library. Jiménez-Flores’ work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions. Most recently, he held a year-long artist-in-residence position with the Harvard University Ceramic Program.
A solo exhibition by Christopher Blay continues through Feb. 26 at the Northwest Campus Lakeview Gallery, 4801 Marine Creek Pkwy. The exhibition focuses on the frustration and asphyxiation of African Americans in contemporary society after centuries of unresolved issues of race, justice and equality. Award-winning artist Blay also serves as curator for the Art Corridor at the Southeast Campus.
Read Me, an installation of sculpture, text and interactive works by artist Candice Hicks, will be on exhibit at the Southeast Campus, Art Corridor II, 2100 Southeast Pkwy., Arlington, from March 24 to April 22. The series of optical illusion sculptures and wall texts make a room-sized puzzle book. Hicks, who describes herself as “an ardent reader,” says she gravitates toward creating books. The opening reception takes place March 24 from 5 to 7 p.m.
