Bryan Art Gallery exhibit to have Texas State flavor

Several Texas State faculty and staff members will be featured in “Mis Hermanas,” a show devoted to sisters, friends and colleagues at Square One Art Studio in downtown Bryan, Texas. The show opens on “First Friday,” December 2, with an artist reception from 6 to 9 p.m.

Square One Art Studio is the passion of Dr. Robert Pankey, professor and former chair of the Texas State University Department of Health and Human Performance, and his wife, Jill Pankey, a senior lecturer in the Texas State School of Art and Design.

Jill Pankey explained, “Most of the featured artists in this show are art teachers at Texas State. The Mis Hermanas Show serves as a reminder that in the 21st century, women artists are ‘in.’ With Mis Hermanas, we gathered a few of our favorite artists and celebrate the passion for art that has brought us together as sisters and friends.”

She continued, “We are fortunate to have so much talent here at Texas State, and we appreciate the opportunity to toot our own horns once in a while. A few months ago, Pank and I stumbled across this old building in historic downtown Bryan, a city that is on the cusp of becoming an artist community, and fell in love with the dream. Lots of sweat equity later, we are opening the doors to artists and photographers, and people who like hanging out with those sort of folks.”

The following Texas State faculty and staff artists will be featured in Mis Hermanas:

· Monica Alfonso (lecturer: School of Art and Design)

· Teri Evans-Palmer (assistant professor: School of Art and Design)

· Veronica Fernandez (academic advisor: College of Fine Arts and Communication)

· Diana Hendricks (director of communications- ALERRT Center)

· Jill Pankey (senior lecturer, School of Art and Design)

· Roxana Tuff (senior lecturer, School of Art and Design)

They will be joined in the show by Bryan native, Barbara German, a popular local mixed media artist. The opening will include live music and beverages.

Downtown Bryan is the place to be on “First Fridays” of each month for art, music, food and friends.
