David Freeman's Art Exhibit

David Freeman's One Man Group Show is currently in the Texas A&M - Commerce University Gallery from October 15th - November 15th, 2013. 

"Empty eyes stare out from the blue mask, static satellite tower looming from the forehead.
Nearby, religious luminaries found by artist David Freeman in Mexico radiate with light through images of the Last Supper and other scenes.

Much of the folk art he has collected from both sides of the border has religious scenes. One of the luminaries, with electric bulbs, depicts the Last Supper with metallic green, violet, and blue radiating from each head. Another shows the Virgin Mary with the Baby Jesus surrounded by flowers. Still another contains an image of Virgin Mary in a blue cape." Text written by Travis Whithead for The Monitor  (

These are a few of the images I took of David's show.  His work is brave, thought provoking and imaginative.  Since we live near the Oklahoma border we are not so accutely aware of the challenges and daily struggle of those who live along the Rio Grande border of Texas. David was kind enough to come to my graduate studio on campus and give a short critique of the work for my MFA show.  I really appreciated his comments and helpful suggestions on how I might improve my work and get it ready for exhibition.
