'Andy Warhol: Art Is Anything You Can Get Away With' opens at the Cole Art Center
Installation view.

NACOGDOCHES, TX.- An exhibition featuring the works of Andy Warhol opens at the Ed and Gwen Cole Art Center, Stephen F. Austin State University, in East Texas. The exhibition features a small slice of the artist’s enormous oeuvre, in particular, his “Silver Clouds” – helium filled silver clouds that drift in the air, according to John Handley, director of galleries.

“The premiere of ‘Silver Clouds’ at the Castelli Gallery in 1966 was accompanied by Warhol’s now iconic wallpaper, in this case, his silkscreen pink cow heads on yellow background,” Handley said. “For the exhibition at the Cole, a portion of this original presentation has been recreated.”

The exhibition also includes three of his large screen prints and several of his Polaroid photos.

An American artist who was a leading figure in the pop art movement, Warhol’s works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s.

Warhol first worked as a commercial illustrator for magazine and other publications. He later became a renowned, often misunderstood and sometimes controversial artist, Handley said. He worked in many types of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silkscreen, sculpture, film, and music.

His studio, known as The Factory, was a well-known gathering place that attracted both distinguished intellectuals and those on the fringe of society.

This exhibition is made possible by the The Andy Warhol Museum, The Andy Warhol Foundation and Texas Christian University. It is sponsored in part by the Texas Commission on the Arts, which is the state affiliate of the National Endowment of the Arts.

The Cole Art Center, SFA’s historic gallery, is located at 329 E. Main St. in Nacogdoches, TX. The exhibition is up through March 25, 2017.
