Three Brazosport College Art Department faculty members are putting their talents on display in The Gallery at The Center for Arts and Sciences in Clute.

Artwork by faculty members Molly Brauhn, Jackson Zorn and Kamilah Campbell are being featured in the show, which is titled “Oxbow.” The exhibit is being presented by BASF and Brazosport Art League.

While Brauhn, Zorn and Campbell have vastly different styles and techniques, they share a common thread that binds their art, hence the show’s unique title. One of the definitions of oxbow is a U-shaped bend in the course of a river.

“Our body of work is very diverse, but we wanted to find something that unified it,” Brauhn said. “The bending and warping was a unifying factor for us.”

The art features Brauhn’s sculptures and prints, Zorn’s drawings and paintings, and Campbell’s sculptures.

“Molly’s works deals with the bending of time and space, and the perception of that,” Zorn said. “Kamilah’s art deals with the bending and warping of the understanding of cultural identity and what a household can be, and my work is about bending the perceptions of myth and hero.”

The exhibit will be on display through March 5. The Center of the Arts and Sciences is located at 400 College Dr. next to Brazosport College.

Brauhn, Zorn and Campbell also have selected works in the G.C.I.C. Faculty Exhibition show in the Fine Arts Center Art Gallery at the Houston Community College’s Southwest-Stafford Campus.

The G.C.I.C. exhibit, which will be on display until Feb. 24, features the artwork of the visual art faculty of the Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Consortium, which consists of 16 community colleges in the greater-Houston area.
