Plush Gallery presents a group exhibition of current students from Texas A&M at Commerce, entitled "Kids from Commerce". Featuring undergraduate members of the campus Art Club, the exhibition highlights painting, mixed media, and sculpture.
Long known as a breeding ground for emerging contemporary artists, the university has turned out such notable figures as Gary Panter, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Robyn O'Neill, Lawrence Lee, Martin Delabano, Greg Metz, and John Pomara, among many others. The current crop of young artists is a testimony to the free-wheeling experimental nature of the school.
