Check out the new artwork on our walls! Freeman Library’s partnership with the Arts Alliance at Clear Lake  gives us a chance to see the work of a variety of local artists, and over the next few months we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the work of Fred Cerkan, Peter Janecke and Marlene Llanes in the Marge Jacobson Community Room and in the Internet Café.
Fred Cerkan’s series, Adobe Forms and Textures “explores the various forms and textures found in the adobe walls that are prevalent in the architecture of the Southwest”. His exhibit focuses on San Francisco de Asis, the mission church in Taos, New Mexico.
Peter Janecke shoots mainly in black and white, and has for the last several years “specialized in infrared photography”. He also creates “composite images” in Photoshop (made from several images) which “allows him to extend his photographic vision in to the realm of imagination”.
Marlene Llanes, a native of Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico, graduated as a graphic designer from the Vasco de Quiroga University in 1997. Having been awarded the Fulbright Scholarship to study illustration in the USA, she used it to finish her master’s degree in illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. After having worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for several years, Marlene moved to the Houston area and is concentrating on her own work.
This information was provided by the artists and The Arts Alliance Center at Clear Lake, but more can be learned by visiting their exhibits at the library, so come check them out!
