Student art exhibits online


Recent art exhibits by Araceli Casas and Trevon Latin have been added to the UH Digital Library.  Both exhibits were mounted in the Jenkins Architecture and Art Library’s A2A Alcove.  Mr. Latin’s “Orders from the Dead” series features mixed media pieces that are strongly influenced by outsider art and American history.  It is part of a larger oeuvre of works based upon an enslaved character in the antebellum South, conceived by Mr. Latin.  He earned his B.A. in Painting at the University of Houston in Spring 2015 and is now a working artist in New York City.  Ms. Casas’ whimsical series “Veggies in Space” came together when she married her exploration of still life techniques with her interest in science fiction.  Imperfect vegetables cruise through landscapes inspired by Hubble telescope photography.  Ms. Casas earned her BA in art history at the University of Houston and now studies and works in art education.  She is currently a teaching artist at the Texas Children’s Hospital.  UH Libraries gave both of these alumni their first opportunity to mount and exhibit their own work before a wide public audience.
