The TJC Wise Auditorium Art Gallery presents Collections - an exhibition of collected works from Derrick White through April 21, 2011 Art Tyler Texas
Gallery hours Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Works from regional and national artists, colleagues, friends and former students make up this assortment of selected art pieces from the collection of Derrick White. “I’ve had the benefit of buying, trading and being gifted some outstanding artworks by talented artists over the years. They deserve to be exhibited and seen.”
Throughout my years of teaching I have had the honor and privilege of working with some of the most talented students and meeting some very interesting visiting artists. In my effort to commemorate these experiences often times I’ve had the good fortune of obtaining artworks by bartering, buying, trading and receiving them as gifts. The pieces in this exhibition cover a span of 20 years in my art career, the last 10 spent at Tyler Junior College. The show has been curated to showcase the mediums of painting and printmaking.
Artists include: Dale Andrews, Amber Draschil, Justin Edwards, Jessica Greene, Charles and John - The Amazing Hancock Brothers, Daniel Hays, John Hitt’s friend Mike, Paul Jones, Anna Krafve, David Maldonado, Cierra McGuckie, Heather Osburn, Tiffany Petty, Sean Starwars, Mike Stephens, Josh Tamez, Shae Taylor and Debbie Willbanks.
