An exhibition featuring a selection of works from The John Gaston Fairey Collection of Mexican Folk Art, donated by John Gaston Fairey to the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in spring 2017. "Fairey’s collection of over 450 pieces of Mexican Folk Art, including textiles, baskets and ceramics were primarily sourced over approximately 30 years while on plant hunting expeditions in the interior of Mexico. The majority of the work is from Oaxaca and from families of artists and artisans."
A show of works by Texas-based artist Ellen Tanner. The artist on her work: "Each of my paintings tells an intricate story that unfolds through layers of fine detail, carefully rendered textures and rich color. Sources of inspiration include ancient tales exposing human nature, the secret lives of animals, creatures and characters in myths."
"From 1845-1848, artist Paul Kane camped and canoed across the North American continent, sketching in watercolor and oil paints along the way. He wanted to record the landscape and the people before they changed. This exhibition presents Kane’s first-hand works exploring regions through the artist’s eye."
