HOUSTON— Galveston Arts Center highlights the work of University of Houston-Clear Lake Professor of Fine Arts Sandria Hu June 9 – July 8. “Fragments” includes works in oil, mixed media and silk screen that includes pieces created by Hu.

“I’ll be exhibiting both old and new work,” explains Hu. “I feel honored that Clint (Willour) has given me this opportunity.”

Among the works are those Hu created at Crater Lake National Park as well as some that she painted internationally while serving as a visiting artist in Slovakia and Hungary . Approximately 10 of the pieces were created in December 2006 and January 2007 while Hu was in Budapest.

“Sandria had a one-person exhibition here at the Galveston Arts Center in 1991, and I felt it was time to exhibit a survey of her most recent work,” explains Galveston Arts Center curator Clint Willour. “I knew that the El Paso Museum of Art was planning an exhibition of her Clay and Ash series, and I wanted to take advantage of that and expand on it with works on paper and her work from Budapest. The result is an exhibition that covers 2001 to 2007 and includes 37 works.”

Hours for the Galveston Arts Center , 2127 Strand, Galveston , are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 pm, Sunday.
