Virginia Haynie Gause will host the October First Friday Art Walk at McAllen Creative Incubator on October 7, 2022, from 7-9 p.m. The theme for the evening is “The Art of Travel”. This theme will be followed in the art work by the various artists displayed in the gallery as well as in the stage performances. 

Virginia is a travel writer from McAłlen and has been an artist in Studio 17 since 2016. In September 2022 she and her husband George Gause toured Spain and Portugal. In 2019 they spent a month in Southwestern China visiting tea farms. 

Erren Seale, Kelly Morales, Hari Namboodiri, and Virginia Haynie Gause will present some of their favorite photographic images from their travels to Asia, Europe, and the United States. 

Saxophonist Paul Briceno and Guitarist Ulysses DeLeon will perform some of their own compositions as well as music from well-known composers. Both have several years of performance experience and are prepared to make the evening one to remember as they are both excellent classical and jazz musicians. 

The evening will also include recordings by Rosa Canales Perez and Joe Perez (Rumbo Al Anacua) from Olmito, TX. Rosa is the RGV’s leading contemporary songwriter with quite an extensive body of work. 

Attendees are encouraged to dress in jazzy or ethnic clothing and get ready to hear musical favorites as well as recent compositions!

The goal of the McAllen Creative Incubator is to support the continued professional growth of artists and enhance the cultural and economic vitality of our local community.  For more information about the McAllen Creative Incubator at 601 N.
