Noticed/Unnoticed: An Exhibition of Artworks by Emily Broussard and David Namaksy at 500X Gallery

            Emily Broussard and David Namaksy, both recent MFA graduates from Texas A&M University at Commerce, bring their divergent art practices together in the common theme of unnoticed aspects of life. Broussard’s paintings focus on the inconspicuous emotional dialogues between individuals, which she calls ‘subliminal dialogues’, and Namaksy’s sculpture focuses on banal, manmade objects that go unseen. Both artists render the idea of the unnoticed in an ‘in your face’ attitude to awaken the audience to the things that have always been right in front of them but have been unseen. They make you notice the unnoticed.
