[Rio Grande Valley] Hughes and Serio to Display Collaborative Exhibition at IMAS

by admin on September 4, 2015

McAllen, TX-  The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) would like to invite the public to the opening of its new art exhibition “Through a Transcendent Lens” on Thursday, September 10, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. “Through a Transcendent Lens” is a collaborative exhibit by sculptor Dewane Hughes and painter Alexis Serio; both artists will be present at the opening reception.

Collaboration is something natural to Hughes and Serio; they have recently exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as held residencies at Gullkistan, International Residency for Creative People, in Laugarvatn, Iceland. Hughes states, “In recent years we’ve had the opportunity to travel pretty extensively and have noticed how experiencing different cultures has effected our work. This noticeable change could be seen as a common under current of [Through a Transcendent Lens].”

Influenced by the poets of the Beat Generation, Hughes’ sculptures of iron, bronze, brass, steel, and wood deal with language, while Serio’s landscapes provide stillness and solitude. She describes them as “selective and ideals of the truth.”

“Through a Transcendent Lens” will be on display at IMAS from September 10 to November 29, 2015

. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 10 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. General admission fees apply, FREE for IMAS Members. For more information, please contact IMAS at (956) 682-0123 or visit www.imasonline.org.
