The Ben Bailey Art Gallery set up an exhibit that focuses on contemporary art. The exhibit titled “One K Space Summer” was set up Aug 9.
Artists from Corpus Christi’s K Space Art Studio are featured in the exhibit. Different displays of art varying in size, shape and materials fill the art gallery.
“Students are happy of having K Space art work in the gallery which is always a good response” said Associate Professor of Art Todd Lucas. “The artwork represents the constant change of different genres, ages, times and it gives a positive effect,” he added.
The exhibit not only highlights contemporary art but also provides a unique learning experience for students to be exposed to its history. The nonprofit organization K Space Contemporary has been functioning for over 20 years. The organization has been an important part to the art community of South Texas.
“K Space shows a great variety of three and two dimensional works like paintings, collages and models made from different mediums that represent the art work we do here as well” quoted Senior Kim Caughman who was working on a ceramic sculpture.
The artwork will continue to be displayed from Mondays to Fridays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Sep. 22 when a closing reception will be taking place from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
