Galveston College welcomes an exhibit of paintings and drawings by Houston Christian University Art Professor Joel Stanulonis. This series of whimsical visions created during the Covid-19 quarantine titled, Quarantine Dreams, is a reminder that art can be a source of solace even in the most trying of times. 


Stanulonis is a two-dimensional artist who specializes in intricate graphite and oil works inspired by time in nature. The experience of the restlessness of quarantine led to visions of wildlife also enduring confinement in their own, sometimes fantastical ways. 


The exhibit is on display at the Galveston College Art Gallery, from Oct. 24 through Dec. 1. A closing reception will be held on Dec. 1, from 5-7 p.m., with an artist talk at 5:30 p.m. The exhibit, located on the third floor of the Galveston College Fine Arts Building, can be viewed during the college’s normal hours of operation, Monday through Friday. The art gallery is free and open to the public.
