David Fuentes, who teaches courses in Foundations at TAMUCC, has two upcoming solo exhibitions titled Just Not in it for the Parking. Fuentes earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts in 2005 from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. In the fall of 2010, he earned his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Dallas.
David was influenced by toys and comics from the 80’s and 90’s, and knew he had an aptitude for drawing that has stayed with him throughout his life. His artwork visualizes the emotional and physical journey of a man reflecting upon and confronting his own life, limitations, and abilities because of and beyond his Cerebral Palsy, as expressed through a series of watercolor paintings.
Just Not in it for the Parking will be on display:
424 N. Chaparral Street, Corpus Christi, Tx 78401
Hallet Oak Gallery, Historic Kahn & Stanzel Bldg.
115 N. Main Street, Hallettsville, Tx 77964

Program students nailed it, overdelivering and exceeding expectations! Shout out to all students that donated their time and talents, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Experimental Typography Pieces Bring Messages of Performance to the TAMUC Performing Arts Center
Students in Typography II were tasked to create experimental typographic messages that represent “Performance” at the TAMUCC Performing Arts Center. The mediums used to create these pieces range from mirrors and lipstick to cut-up theater tickets.
These messages will be on display in the lobby of the PAC October 19 – November 5.
An installation by TAMUCC Sculpture Professor Greg Reuter is part of a group exhibition curated by Gerald Lopez titled Picking Up the Pieces: Artworks on Hurricane Harvey. This exhibition is on display in the Schaudies Gallery, upstairs at K Space Contemporary.
The powerful art exhibition features local artists who felt the impact of Hurricane Harvey firsthand, whether it was by weathering the storm and/or by volunteering to help their neighbors in its immediate aftermath. Many of the artists in the exhibition utilize hurricane debris that they have gathered and transformed into compelling works of art. All the artworks in the show are sure to make a strong and positive impression.
Wood and steel sculptures by Sculpture I & II students are inhabiting the TAMU-CC Performing Arts Center for the rest of the week. Made in response to the Russian Renaissance performance and the architecture of the PAC, students were given the opportunity to create life-sized wood or steel sculptures to be displayed in the lobby to compliment the performance, and will be moved to the Weil Gallery Friday, October 19th for further display through the end of the month.
This year’s conference featured sculptors Chakaia Booker, Elizabeth Turk, and Mary Bates Neubauer, held numerous artist panel lectures, presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and also ventured off-campus to various art galleries. The 3-day conference explored both indoor and outdoor sculptures and installations, inspiring students and working artists alike.

In sculptural series such as Turf Rolls, Pre-Fab(ulous), and The Not So Little Engine within this ongoing, multi-year project of Exurban, I consider the intangibility and responsibility of hyperobjects as I explore the tension between nature and societal innovation. Inspired by mise en abyme, I combine sizes and proportions to physically invoke a meta-narrative where one is both inside and outside, both subject and object, and both in control and being controlled. These comparisons of perception address a drive to create a version of nature and of society with which we are comfortable — one that is contained and controlled.
