Fiber and book art by Nacogdoches, Texas based artist Candace Hicks will be shown in CSN’s Artspace Gallery February 16 through April 20. A reception with a talk by the artist and refreshments will be held February 26, starting at 6 p.m.
Hicks collects coincidences from the books she reads and gathers them in her artists’ books and installations. She says: “I once read two unrelated books in a row that both contained the phrase “black currant lozenge. Unlikely synchronicities seem to happen to me often, and that’s true in part because I expect them. My work centers on being a reader of fiction.”
She is a Stephen F. Austin State University Associate Professor of Art and Coordinator of Foundations.
The CSN Artspace Gallery is free, family friendly, and open to the public. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call (702) 651-4146.

Imagine learning that your people were buried under a heap of waste. How could you process such contemptuous disregard? This question drove artist Jeannie Hua to develop Tailings. The mixed-media installation exposes the burial of Chinese Americans in Tonopah, outside the region’s official cemetery under an unmarked mound of tailings removed from local mines. It’s part of Hua’s larger exploration of the neglect of Asian Americans who helped settle the West. The show is on display in the museum’s Window Gallery, where, depending on the time of day, viewers may see their own reflection — an effect Hua says is an intentional part of the experience. Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is open Tues.-Sat. 10a-5p.
