Robert C. Pena’s one-man show features decorative ceramics

KINGSVILLE (July 1, 2008) — Robert C. Pena is a graduate of Texas A&M University-Kingsville, but he is still a student, working toward his master’s degree. The student and alumnus is having a one-man show of his artwork at the John E. Conner Museum, located at 905 W. Santa Gertrudis St., at the university. Escarabajo begins Monday, July 7, and runs through Monday, Aug. 4. The museum will host an artist reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 19.

Pena received his bachelor’s degree in fine arts in May 2006 and will be completing his master’s in ceramics in December. This is the first professional solo exhibit for the Falfurrias native.

Escarabajo, which means beetle, is a collection of about 10 pieces of hand-thrown pottery with a high fire glaze, Pena said.

The Conner Museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
