Art Exhibit Features Texas Summer Heat

Art Exhibit Features Texas Summer Heat

This week, Chan Shun Centennial Library will present a new art exhibit called “Heat: Living on a Warming Planet.” The exhibit is sponsored by Southwestern Adventist University and showcases various local photographers from the Cleburne Camera Club. It is open from Sept. 22 through Oct. 6 at the Meadows Art Gallery.  Opening reception is on Sept. 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Many different artists, including some from the campus of Southwestern, have provided their photography.  Jerry Potter, associate student accounts director and Italo Osorio, director of application services at ITS, have both contributed to the exhibit.

“This exhibit features beautiful photography of sun-dominated scenes and creative shots depicting heat,” says Alfredo Vergel, associate librarian for public services and organizer of the event. “With very small changes in global temperature having very tangible effects on rainfall, sea levels, ecosystems and more, we are left with a need to find ways of coping with raging weather while at the same time attempting to ameliorate it—if that’s at all possible. That’s where this exhibit can serve a purpose beyond those of promoting art appreciation.  It also contributes to the quality of life in our community and provides a setting where Southwestern can connect with art lovers.”

The Meadows Gallery is located in the Chan Shun Centennial Library at 101 West Magnolia in Keene.  The exhibit is free to the public.

    Any chance the photographs could be featured on this site so those of us far away could enjoy them too?

      That would be nice, but technically and legally impossible. Sorry.
