McALLEN — South Texas College’s Technology Campus Library presents “The Girl by the Sea: Enchanted Storytelling in the Digital Age,” an exhibit featuring the writing and digital illustrations of Robert Gilbert. The exhibit is on view now through Friday, May 11, at the college’s Technology Campus Library, 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.
Gilbert embarked on creating a children’s book made solely with his mind and his computer entitled, “The Girl by the Sea.” The work reveals a playful, colorful world, with simple, yet bold imagery, where the main character lives with nature and enjoys a freedom that is untainted.
Gilbert is an assistant professor at The University of Texas-Pan American. He graduated from the Otis Parson’s Art Institute in Los Angeles and earned his master’s degree from California State University. He also spent four years teaching graphic design in Athens, Greece.
