Islander Art Gallery to Host ‘I Have No Magic Yet: Dell + Palmer + Vogt’ Exhibition

September 04, 2015


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – An exhibition featuring prints and multi-media works by the talented Texas artists Jeffrey Dell, Adam Palmer and Jon Vogt is titled, “I Have No Magic Yet: Dell + Palmer + Vogt.” The exhibit is featured in September and October at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s Islander Art Gallery, located at 4024 Weber Road in the Hamlin Shopping Center. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The exhibition will open on Friday, Sept. 4, from noon to 6 p.m. There will be a panel discussion on Saturday, Sept. 12, 4:30-6 p.m., followed by an opening reception from 6-8 p.m.

“The name ‘I Have No Magic Yet’ comes from a discussion among myself and the artists which considered the creative process of striving toward something as yet undefined,” said Dr. Laura Petican, Assistant Professor of Art and Galleries Director. “It is ironic in the sense that it suggests a potential shortcoming, but alludes to the ‘magic’ that is an inherent part of the creative process and which is abundantly present in the works included in this exhibition.”

Dell is based in San Marcos; Palmer is based in Dallas/Ft. Worth; and Vogt is based in Denton. The exhibition will run until Sunday, Oct. 25. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.
