Monday, December 1st is an exciting day for the International Museum of Cultures. A special event will be taking place that is not something you will want to miss. The museum will be featuring The Gallery at IMC – a collection of art by Texas women artists from various regions of the Dallas/Fortworth area. A variety of artistic genres will be available for your viewing pleasure – jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media paintings – and will also be available to purchase if you desire. The event will be curated by Kelli Howie who has a Bachelor of Arts in Theater and Art from the University of Dallas and a Masters of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. Kelli has many years of experience in art instruction at both private and public institutions such as the University of Dallas as an adjunct professor, the Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and the Visual Expressions Creative Art School. As an independent artist and Civic Cultural Organizer, Kelli works in the creation of images and objects that enhance the human experience. Her art expands from theater costumes, set and prop design to the fine arts including watercolor, oil, ceramics, nature photography and sculpture. Her art will be on display at The Gallery at IMC along with those of these other Texas women: Kelly Pevehouse, Joyce Price, Tina Nohinek, Leslie Ballew, Jackie Rider, Ruth Burns, Mary Cunningham and Linda Gilpin.
If you love the arts or know someone who does, we encourage you to come by the museum on December 1st to view the spectacular art display. It is the ideal season to take advantage of The Gallery at IMC and purchase a work of art as the perfect Christmas gift either for yourself or an artsy friend who would appreciate the genuine gesture. We look forward to seeing you there!
