SAN ANGELO, Texas — Angelo State University will present a free public art exhibit by David DuBose, a professor of art at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, starting Tuesday in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Dr.
Titled "The Falling Sky," the exhibit of DuBose's prints and mixed-media works will be on display in the Carr EFA Building's Gallery 193 and will be open for free public viewing on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Feb. 18, according to an ASU press release.
DuBose earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Texas Tech University and his Master of Fine Arts degree from Louisiana State University. His original prints, paintings and mixed-media works have been included in over 150 exhibitions in 17 countries, and he has had artist residencies in Canada, Germany, Ireland and the U.S. He lived in Northern Ireland for 13 years, where he taught printmaking at the University of Ulster in Belfast and later served as director of the Seacourt Print Workshop, an artist-run printmaking collective. His works also belong to numerous public and private collections, including the AIB Collection of Modern Irish Art in Dublin and the Artist Printmaker/Photographer Research Collection at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
"The creative process has become a means to examine and reflect on my experiences and to make sense of the world," DuBose said. "Personal, family, and political histories greatly inform my art, and I often layer photographic or illustrative imagery with hand-drawn or painterly elements. I have discarded the idea that these elements and layers must be visually aligned or rationally connected, preferring instead to separate and isolate them to extend their associative properties and create subtle narratives."
DuBose will also present a gallery talk about his exhibit at 3 p.m. Thursday in Room 101 of the Carr EFA Building. This event will also be free and open to the public.
Everyone attending the exhibit and/or gallery talk will need to complete ASU's visitor wellness screening and be prepared to show their wellness screening badge before entering the Carr EFA Building. Masks/face coverings are encouraged, but are not mandatory.
