Root of it All in Austin

It’s happening again. Root of it All is here in Austin. I’m excited to exhibit my art at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. Many of my dear friends were not able to check out some of my latest pieces at the show at the A&M Kingsville so I am beyond excited to have a second showing. I’d love to see you at the opening. Come say hi and let me know what you think. The show will be up from April 13th through June 17th 2017.

Solo Exhibit: The Root of It All at Bailey…

Some of my art work will be on display at the Ben Bailey Art Gallery, Texas A&M University-Kingsville exhibit until the middle of November 2016.

The Root of It All


Exhibit will close Saturday, Nov. 19, with the closing reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18.

Garcia makes work with a spontaneous and intuitive approach. She is inspired by natural elements and the shapes found in nature. Her work also explores Mexican folklore, memory and identity. Her process channels her memory of making macramé bracelets for hours as a young child, knotting endlessly, moving the strings around to create various color patterns.

The knotting and weaving process that started from those early pieces carries through to her work today. What is most recognizable about her work is the process of sewing, weaving and knotting that she has developed to give the pieces a distinct and natural texture, reminiscent of nature and living plant life.
