"Person, Places, Things" by Jayde Archbold
July 27 - September 8

"Person, Places, Things acts as my visual diary and exploration of a few of the places I have gone and the things I have found throughout my stay here. I am curious about my natural surroundings, and I investigate this curiosity through my paintings. Walks through parks, trails, sidewalks, and creeks provide the greatest inspiration for my work. Observation and documentation of these places and the things I find and collect from them is the most important part of my process. I spend hours at a time studying places and things very closely, making sure I see everything there is to see. Many of the things I capture within my paintings are easily overlooked, but I feel that the things I am willing to stop for are the ones worth painting. Strange patterns on plants and leaves, hidden landscapes, and mundane sightings in nature become translated and abstracted through bright colors and extreme contrast in order to bring these seemingly unnoticed moments to the visual forefront. My love for nature and the outside world developed from my upbringing in Florida, where I spend most of time in my backyard looking at and exploring everything I find in nature. All paintings in this show are referenced from places I documented and explored in Bryan/College Station." - Jayde Archbold

Exhibit will be in the Texas Gallery of The Arts Center. Admission is free during Arts Center hours: Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm, Friday 9am-5pm, and Saturday 10am-2pm.
