A look into the experiences of artists living, working and exhibiting in the Horlock Art Gallery & History Museum.

Panel 1

Jayde Archbold


Jayde Archbold is an artist from Tampa, FL, who currently lives in Dade City, FL. She is a recent graduate of the University of South Florida (December 2016) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art. Her previous work focused on the patterns and brilliant colors of Florida tropical plant life. Since being exposed to new colors, patterns, art, architecture, and artistic media in Texas, she has slightly shifted her focus to making paintings inspired by both her experiences in a new environment and a lifelong passion for colors and patterns. She is experimenting with different media, including found objects from antique stores and fiber/yarn to intertwine with painted patterns inspired by the historic architecture and local sources in Navasota.

Charles Henry


Inside a camera, everything appears reversed. Charles Henry is a large format, documentary, and monochrome artist originally from West Texas. He earned a BFA in design from Texas Tech in 2005. Before moving to Austin in 2011, he made photographs of the Great Plains. His work functions both as art and historical artifacts.

Create something every day. Under an amber light, Charles rotates a thick focusing knob, positions an easel, and magnifies silver grain. He pulls a fresh sheet of photographic paper from a thin box and sets a timer. In a tray of developer, a latent image emerges.
