Corbett Center Art Gallery features surreal exhibit

An exhibition of paintings, sketches and sculptures by New Mexico State University sophomore Daniel Rodriguez is displayed through Aug. 11 at the Corbett Center Art Gallery.

"Palm-O-Granit," a painting by NMSU student Daniel Rodriguez, is on display at the Corbett Center Gallery through Aug. 11

Rodriguez, whose work is influenced by surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher, is a native of Las Cruces and has been painting for more than five years. His display includes still-life paintings, model clay sculptures and various ink sketches, "that all have my personal twist," Rodriguez said. Many of the sculptures and paintings are the products of art course assignments from NMSU and Onate High School, which Rodriguez attended.

The Corbett Center Art Gallery show is Rodriguez's first solo presentation.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission to the gallery is free. For more information, call Bruce Vandevender, Union Program Council adviser, at (505) 646-3235 or e-mail bvandeve@nmsu.edu.

The exhibit is sponsored by NMSU's Union Program Council.
