Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art

The Creative Art of Ann Harithas

On Saturday, November 19th, from 5-8PM, Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art will host the opening of a new exhibition by artist, museum founder, and cultural phenomenon Ann Harithas. The exhibition, "The Creative Era of Ann Harithas" is an in-depth retrospective of the many ways Harithas’s creative vision manifested itself over the course of the 20th and 21st centuries.
"The Creative Era of Ann Harithas" is both a retrospective of the acclaimed collage artist’s body of work, and a tribute to what is truly an era of creativity ignited by Harithas, beginning in the 1970s and culminating in her curatorial work at Five Points Museum in Victoria, Texas, founded by Harithas in 2016.
This exhibition will focus on the extensive body of collage works created by Harithas from the 1980s to the 2010s, as well as her own art car creations and those she commissioned and collected. The exhibition will also consider this work in the context of her contributions to the artistic communities in Victoria, Houston, and points beyond such as New York and California.
The art and collage work of Ann Harithas was born of the natural state of her creativity, and its purest manifestation was found in the intimate and revelatory collages that she crafted by hand. In concert with her personal art, however, she also curated innovative exhibitions and brought both independent and world-famous artists together to catalyze collaboration into a unique creative vision. This vision has helped lift and transform artists and society – her effect upon the world became a creative era, one that would have been unreachable without her dedication and support.
The opening reception, November 19th, will feature live entertainment by The Grand Tourists from Marfa, and Las Coronelas from San Antonio, as well as dancing and light refreshments. This exhibit is curated by Maurice Roberts, Chief Curator of the museum.
Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 1201 North Moody in Victoria, TX and is open to the public 12-5pm Wednesday through Sunday. Admission at the museum is always free.

Victoria Regional History Center

A Walk Through Foster Field **A historical Photograph Exhibit**

Foster Field was an Army Air Force Training command base during World War II. Not only were US military members trained here for pilot programs and gunnery school, but outside military groups also sent troops to be trained. The Mexican Expeditionary Air force (the Aztec Eagles) trained at Foster Field and saw battle overseas.

Foster Field has long since been a popular research topic in the area. Through numerous photo donations, the Victoria Regional History Center (VRHC) staff would like to welcome you to explore this photographic exhibit of life at Foster Field. Join us May 16 - June 16 in the UHV Library located at 3006 N Ben Wilson.
This is free and open to the public during library hours.

This exhibit is curated by the VRHC and they are always looking to grow its photo collection; please reach out to staff if you would like to contribute photos. AskRegionalHistory@uhv.edu
