Navasota welcomes a new artist to their Artist in Residence program this summer. Sarah Gomez is set to begin her residence stay this June.
City of Navasota and Arts Council of the Brazos Valley invites the public to the opening reception at the Horlock House Friday, June 23, at 4:30 p.m. This is a chance to welcome the new talented artist and view her featured exhibit “Pink Blanket.” Refreshments and treats are also served.
The Navasota Artists in Residence program brings in artists from across the country to live and work in the Horlock Art Gallery and History Museum. The downstairs of the building serves as a gallery, and the upstairs serves as the artists’ living quarters and studio. Every six months, two to three applicants are selected by ACBV to participate. Artists have the opportunity to create new works as well as showcase their compositions to the public, teach classes and host events.
Navasota’s Horlock House Gallery & Museum is located at 1215 E Washington Ave. They are open Thursday-Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Artwork by Gomez will be changing periodically and is available to view until Aug. 14.
