Drawings by Lee Baxter Davis

Tyler Junior College Wise Auditorium Art Gallery

September 22 through October 17, 2014

Davis taught art at East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce) for over thirty years. He says,"My drawings are compositions of recall. Remembering is a montage. To remember is an act of imagination, usually spontaneous and once the drawings are started they take a life of their own. . .Fish and birds, both symbolic of the well-known ‘cosmic ship’ can be found scattered here and there.”

Women, Art & Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise

Stark Museum of Art

September 20, 2014 through January 3, 2015

In 1895, Newcomb Pottery was established in New Orleans as part artist collective, part social experiment and part business. (The "social experiment" part involved teaching Southern women self-reliance by way of education, and helping them gain financial independence through the sale of their wares.) This collection, from the Newcomb Art Gallery at Tulane University in New Orleans, includes pottery, metalwork, bookbinding and textiles. If you've ever enjoyed an episode of Antiques Roadshow, this exhibit is for you.
