11th Annual Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser
Jan
12
6:00 PM18:00

11th Annual Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser

donated time as the event photographer & also artwork

Join us on Saturday, January 12, 2019 for the 11th Anniversary Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser - Where the Wild Beasts Art! at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center on the Texas Tech campus.

Known as one of the most raucous parties of the year, this costume (optional) event brings festive art lovers together annually for food, wine, fun and art to support School of Art scholarships.

Each year an art movement or style from the past informs the evening's theme including the décor, the meal, and most especially as the guest costume theme (which is entirely optional).

This year's theme celebrates the wildly fun and colorful art of Fauvism made famous by French artist practitioners – Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, André Derain and others. They were called "wild beasts" for their vibrant use of color and expressive form. The Fauve's vibrant color has been combined with the wonderfully playful creatures from Maurice Sendak's, Where the Wild Things Are to create this year's theme.

First Friday Art Trail, October 5th, 6-9PM

1010 Mac Davis Lane, Studio 4, 79401

KELLY REYNA, “Flight Risk,” mixed media, 30 inches x 40 inches, 2017

“To describe my work would be to say that it is both a search and a self-healing effort. Moreover, it is the navigation of the mother and child relationship existing under the umbrella of autism spectrum disorder, a disorder that entails curious characteristics. These include communication barriers, social deficits, obsessively repetitive actions, steadfast meltdowns, periods of erratic sleep and wandering scares. Inevitably these result in relentless tests to the human spirit that begin to materialize as personal narrative within large paintings, embroidery works and small-scale paintings.”

Kelly Reyna was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. She holds an BFA in Studio Art/Painting from Texas Tech University, that she received in 2011. In 2015, Reyna attended two residencies through Plymouth University - Transart Institute, in Berlin and in New York. She is currently in the second year of the Masters of Fine Arts program at Texas Tech University.

  • Contemporary Art Museum Plainview (map)

excited to have been invited to participate in this exhibition, curated by Jon Whitfill! featuring my three “patent pending” artworks made in collaboration with writer Katrina Prow


“This is the 4th edition of Patent Pending, an invitational group exhibition, imagined and organized by accomplished artist Jon Whitfill. The show includes over 50 artists from all across the U.S. along with a few international guests. Each artist was given an original book of U.S. Patents (from 1961-1965) that documented inventions and creative minds during this innovative time. The artists were then asked to make an original piece of art inspired by their particular volume. Most of the artists will be at the opening.”

Growth of a Foreign Entity is a collaboration between Kyla Culbertson and Nate Collins. Kyla creates alien-like ceramic objects, and places them in real and fake environments.
