Troy Woods: The Story...

Troy Woods

Art is simply a talisman for the act of creating one's own reality." ­– Troy Woods

The Galveston Arts Center proudly presents The Story… featuring Troy Woods. Woods creates contemporary sculpture out of wood and steel that create a dialog and tell a story. "The act of seeing what is real is not an act of pure reality,” states Woods. “It is an act of individuality.  Our minds twist perceptions to fit our comfort zone. When a group of people witnesses an event simultaneously they will all describe what they saw differently.”

The exhibition will open during the November 30th ArtWalk and will remain on view through January 12th, 2014.  Curator Clint Willour will lead a gallery talk with both artists beginning at 6:30 pm during ArtWalk.  The event is free and open to the public.

Troy Woods received his B.F.A. from the University of Houston, where he graduated summa cum laude. Woods has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and has completed commissions for public and private collections, including ones for Trinity Episcopal Church and Louisiana Place in downtown Houston. He is represented by McMurtrey Gallery, Houston.
