STEPHENVILLE, Texas—An art exhibition produced by the students of The Tarleton Art Society is going on the road.
Aptly titled “Texhibition,” the event will be held Nov. 4-11 in the 4 North Event Center of Downtown Comanche.
The exhibition features the works of all 39 Tarleton student artists who submitted pieces in a variety of media, though not all are art majors.
“We wanted to accept something from each artist that entered,” said Annalea Nelson, president of Tarleton Art Society. “There was no limit on the amount of work that could be submitted, and no restriction on the type. We want everyone to have an opportunity to display their specific creativity.”
The idea for the Texhibition began earlier this year when Sloan Northridge, owner of the 4 North Event Center, reached out to the Tarleton Art Society mentor, assistant professor Timothy Harding, about using the facility for an art show and to allow young artists to learn the inner workings of such an event.
“A group show like this allows us to be exhibited on our own terms as working artists and students,” Nelson said. “This is great career-oriented experience as well as exposure for our surrounding community to the talents of local students.”
The Texhibition runs Saturday, Nov. 4 through Saturday, Nov. 11. Hours are 5-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a closing reception Nov. 11 at 5 p.m.
4 North Event Center is located at 122 N. Austin St. in Comanche.
