Bound to Pop: Veronica Jaeger
Opening Reception: Friday, June 7, 6 to 9 pm
Jaeger explores the concept of impermanence by using bubbles as metaphorical interpretations of life. Through depictions of imaginary whimsical scenarios and figurative characters, she incorporates bits and pieces from nature, human physiology, childhood memories, metaphysics, and beliefs. The ongoing exploration and expression of these random elements, have given form to a unique symbolic language intended to contrast realities and show glimpses of the interconnectedness of the whole.
Veronica Jaeger is a Venezuelan-born artist living in the US since the year 2000. Her work has been widely recognized in solo and group exhibitions nationally and abroad with the inclusion of awards, grants, and publications. She earned a master’s degree in studio painting from the University of Texas-RGV where she currently teaches as a part-time instructor. She maintains a studio practice in Mission, TX.

Jalyn Casarez: Warped & Knotted
June 7, 6 to 9 pm: Reception with ArtWalk
Jalyn Casarez has been making a name for herself the past few years as a fiber artist. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, she started weaving on a loom, then picked up macramé and dyeing items, thread and fabric with natural pigments along the way. She often incorporates branches, plants and other natural materials into her works. Nature is an important element in her work, because it is where we are all rooted and it plays a huge part in her family’s day to day living. Jalyn has had several successful exhibitions and workshops in the Corpus Christi area. She will be featured in an upcoming episode of Texas Country Reporter.

Loring Baker: emotion face
It seems that we as human beings exist in the space between internal infinity and external infinity. If so, then our bodies are the actual line between the two. If we are the line, the mark, the one moment between the two, I aim to make drawings that are of that line, that speak of the in between,,,, the place where this odd human experience exists.
