The Annual Texas Artists Coalition Juried Show is a yearly exhibition of TAC member artwork across all media.
This years Juror is Narong Tintamusik.
As I was selecting pieces for the show, I noticed that the works generally communicate themes of harmony and discord. While living within this collective period of strife and anxiety, artists are sensitive individuals that respond to stimuli in different ways. I observed works that directly portrayed one’s psychological states or immediate surroundings. Ideas of fragmentation, disembodiment, overstimulation coexists with moments of serenity, peace, mending, and wholeness. The art is talking more about the “now” instead of portraying what occurred or what will happen. Being in the present with these works means reconciling any edginess we may feel in order to be tranquil again.
