David McGee Works on Paper at the Gallery at UTA

January 22 – March 10, 2018

Arlington – The Gallery at UTA is pleased to present an exhibition showcasing works on paper by Houston-based artist David McGee, organized by the Houston Museum of African American Culture. The Telling and the Told, which premiered in Houston before travelling to the University of Texas at Arlington, includes over thirty watercolors illustrating an eclectic array of themes. McGee’s wide-ranging literary and pop-cultural interests are evident, and are mirrored and, frequently, amalgamated in his evocative ‘mash-up’ artworks. Benito Huerta, curator of the exhibition, selected images from several series created over the past twenty years to showcase McGee’s complex visual narratives that encompass everything from art historical references and Hip Hop music, to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and fairytales, to Cuban poetry and Greek mythology. As Huerta commented, “David’s many interests are as varied as his art. He reads the classics as well as contemporary books, but what he really likes to do is mix it up – both in his literary tastes and his art.”


Dali,2010, 30″ x 22″, Watercolor on paper, Collection of Poppi Massey, Houston, TX

David McGee was born in Lockhart, Louisiana, and he currently lives and works in Houston, Texas. He is known for his thought-provoking paintings that frequently reference literature and language, and the juxtaposition of word with image. He has been the focus of several solo exhibitions throughout the United States including venues in New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Texas and Utah; and his work is held in collections including The Addison Gallery of American Art (Andover, MA); the Boston Museum of Art; The Menil Collection (Houston); the Museum of Fine Arts Houston; the Rhode Island School of Design Museum; the Dallas Museum of Art; and the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard University.

Spotlight on Suzanne McNeill’s Travel Journals

A world traveler (and creator of numerous beautiful sketchbooks from her travels), Suzanne McNeill has just returned from a trip to Cuba for new artistic inspiration. She says “It was a wonderful trip … The bright colored antique cars, home stays, Havana and the Vinales Valley were all spectacular.”

CLOTH-PAPER-SCISSORS magazine did a 6-page article (pages 72-77) on her India Sketchbook in their July issue, She feel very honored and thrilled to have one of her sketchbooks recognized.  India was one of her favorite places to visit… brilliant colors everywhere.  Intriguing markets.  Amazing old palaces with decorative painting on the walls and doors.

UPPERCASE July magazine also showed pages from her Vietnam Sketchbook on page 78.

 

 

 

About Suzanne:

Working with her hands and developing innovative concepts for the arts is her passion. Through her popular workshops she enjoys sharing with students, friends and artists. Being a guest on ‘The Carol Duvall TV Show’ for 6 years was enlightening and Suzanne now offers over 100 free youtube demos. She especially enjoys working in different media and finds that moving from one to another keeps her art creative, fresh and alive.
