“A Second Look,” a multimedia group exhibit at Texas A&M’s Forsyth Gallery, features traditional paintings from the Forsyth’s collection displayed alongside reinterpretations of the pieces by area artists, including two faculty members at the Texas A&M College of Architecture.
The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 9, 2015, in the gallery, suite 2440 of Texas A&M’s Memorial Student Center.
“In another piece in the exhibit, Sherman Finch, assistant professor of visualization, created an interactive piece based on “A Texas Cotton Field,” a 1960s painting by Arthur Weaver”.
“Weaver’s piece reflects on a cotton industry that is still thriving today, reminding us of the fine line a civil war, an industry’s exploitation of labor and a country’s newfound morality through the Emancipation Proclamation,” said Finch. “It is an important reminder in American history, a complex tapestry that is still being sewn today. “
