Join us at Jade Walker’s art studio to purchase artworks, meet the artist and enjoy refreshments. The event is free and open to the public from 5:00pm-8:00pm Saturday, August 29 and 11:00am-3:00pm Sunday, August 30.
Jade Walker’s work consists of her personal struggle with spectatorship, binaries within gender, abstraction, narrative, found objects, desire and human anatomy as temporal. Her work focuses on the ideology of American society in respect to the image of the figure and its translation into a tangible object. The macro of the body and the micro of each organ or skin feature are evident in small stitches and massive stuffed bulbous forms presented throughout the work. Empathy, fear, longing and rage all find viable moments in the work with an underlying feeling of familiarity and often times nostalgia.

Frank Reaugh (1860-1945) is one of the Southwest’s earliest and most distinguished artists. Working in the vein of American Impressionism, Reaugh (pronounced “Ray”) devoted his career to visually documenting the immense unsettled regions of the Southwest before the turn of the twentieth century. A restless and intrepid traveler, Reaugh sketched scenes while riding with cattlemen during the height of Texas’s historic roundups, and he led annual sketch trips to some of Texas’s most spectacular and remote locations. Drawing on more than 100 artworks from the Harry Ransom Center’s collection, as well as public and private collections across the state, the exhibition showcases Reaugh’s approach to landscape painting and his mastery of the pastel medium. This exhibition is open daily until November 29, 2015.
Admission to the exhibition is free. No tickets or reservations are required. Your donation supports the Ransom Center’s exhibitions and public programs.
