Kentra Gilbert | Resurrection
At the NE Northline Gallery
Reception Tuesday, February 04, 12–1pm
The HCC Northeast Art Gallery and Student Life Department commemorates Black History Month with an exhibit titled Resurrection featuring Houston artist Kentra Gilbert.
Gilbert’s work features geometric pattern paintings on canvas and wood with various types of acrylic paint. She uses colors and shapes to create optical illusions and what she describes as a beautiful deception.
After earning degrees at Southwestern Christian College and the University of Houston, Ms. Kentra Gilbert graduated from Houston Baptist University with Masters of Fine Art in 2017. During her time as a student and afterward, Kentra showed her artwork in numerous group shows and juried exhibitions; however, this is her first one-person show in a Houston gallery. While at HBU, she received 2nd place in 2017 Rockport's Center for the Art's "Rising Eye of Texas." Among her achievements are becoming a finalist at the "Biennial: Origins in Geometry" (2017) and a recent participant of the "Fresh Look: Selection of Women Artists in the MADI Collection" and "Artist of the Month" for October at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art (2019). She was selected multiple times as a participant in the "Citywide African American Artists Exhibition," a collaborative exhibit put together by Texas Southern University's University Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
