College Expo 2017


500X Gallery, Texas' oldest artist-run space, continues its annual juried show for college students. Like the annual Expo juried show, 2017 College Expo aims to bring together artists from around the state. The exhibition offers college students an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with their Texas-based counterparts and to view work by their colleagues at other institutions. The exhibition offers visitors an overview of the variety of perspectives that exist throughout colleges and universities in Texas. This year's juror is Danielle Avram, gallery coordinator at Texas Woman's University.

The 2017 College Expo runs from Feb. 18 to March 12. The opening reception is on Feb. 18th from 7-10 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Also on view this month: Joanne Cervantes' solo exhibition, The Pits. This exhibition includes drawings, video, and sound traversing a private landscape of lament. Drawn from the intersections of personal history, narrative literature, music and cinema, The Pits seeks to create a new record of experience acknowledging trouble both in the mirror and on the horizon.
