"Nature Centered"

Galveston Arts Center is presenting collections from three emerging Texas artists. Nature Centered, conceived of by special guest curator Christine Jelson West of Lawndale Art Center, brings together the works of three young Houston-area women artists who each address the need to recreate the natural world through different media. These artists discover joy, comfort and a sense of belonging through exploring the beauty they find in nature and the process of constructing their version of it. Isela Aguirre’s graphite and watercolor drawings mash-up her daily observations as her way of making sense of the world around her. “Through these drawings I am able to study and catalogue significant objects in my immediate surroundings…The process of composing and completing these illustrations help relieve daily anxieties and build metaphors that question our existence.” Rebecca Braziel began impulsively collecting burned strips of tree bark from wildfire sites ranging from Nahunta, Georgia to Bastrop, Texas.… Business Name: Galveston Arts Center.
