Arts and Culture

The Round Rock Public Library presents monthly cultural and art-themed exhibits and displays in the Gallery area on the first floor of the library. Exhibits can be viewed when the library is open. If you are an artist or part of a group that would like to exhibit your work on our gallery walls or display case, please contact Julie Chapa, 512-218-7014.

All of my pieces begin in moments of intuitive mark making; sometimes with pencil first, other times with ink first. Once the ink it applied it is a push and pull of guiding it around the page, as well as letting it find its own way. I am as much the observer as I am the one leading, sometimes with a brush, sometimes with a palette knife – always trusting intuition.

Although these paintings were created as stand alone pieces, what unifies them as a collection is this: when I paint in this intuitive, abstract manor I have the most freedom, the greatest joy and undeniable delight in my work. Painting has become a language of prayer for me and it is in these moments that I am fully myself and fully known.

 

June 2019– John Chesiel

My passion is finding unique ways to use found objects and breathe meaning and life into them, evoke memories, spark connections and build upon themes. Born in Trinidad, I’ve always found value in things that others may consider trash, junk, and dumpster candidates. My work of arranging, re-creating and re-birthing items that I discover when I hop into my car and scour the Austin area, looking for blessings that others may overlook, is quite fulfilling.
