“Versatility has always been a goal of mine regarding my art and I feel that this show will reflect that with its unique range of works I’ve completed here at Hardin-Simmons,” said Chris Cockerell.

Tolentino says his works range from portraits to paintings to graphic design.

“They all deal with either people I know, or figures and icons from pop culture,” he said. “I do my best to incorporate things I care about with each medium I work with.”

Regular gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by appointment (call 325-671-2223 during gallery hours).
