The Galveston Arts Center is pleased to present Locus In Quo, a solo exhibition in the Strand Gallery by Houston artist Michael Kennaugh opening January 9th for the first ArtWalk of 2016. Known for his large-scale canvases filled with bold, sweeping lines, often in muted tones, his work creates a poetic sense of movement and dance. A British Common Law term, Locus In Quo means “a scene or event; a place in which,” and here Kennaugh experiments with how color, composition, and form, can create a sense of place and being. This exhibition offers a selection of his newer paintings as well as drawings and sculpture.

On view in Galveston Arts Center’s upstairs galleries:
Natasha Bowdoin: H E X ∆ M
Natasha Bowdoin pursues the possibility of language as a wild, untamable abstraction. In her site-specific installations, she uses appropriated text and imagery, searching for the point where a word or a letter maintains a ghost of its former identity but is on the brink of becoming something else."

Bennie Flores Ansell: 1 dpi & Projection
Mimicking movement and flight, Ansell creates site-specific installations from various "artifacts" from photography and film. Ansell earned her M.F.A. from the University of Houston, Texas.
