CONTEMPORARY MASTERS: WORKS ON PAPER
May 17 - August 16, 2014
We are elated to showcase these selected works on paper by 20th Century and contemporary masters from the Art Museum of South Texas. The 60 works on paper illustrate the diversity of approach and free experimentation allowed by the medium. This stellar group of American and international artists exemplifies contemporary practice in the medium; including finished works of art, studies for further development, or, in the case of prints, as a means for wider dissemination of the artist's ideas.
EARTH AND ELEMENT: THE ART OF GEORGE DUNBAR
May 31 - August 30, 2014
New Orleans native, George Dunbar, has been moving earth and soil for over fifty years. Making his living as a land developer, the artist moved large amounts of earth by day and delicate layers of fine clay by night. Now retired from his day job, Dunbar is a prolific and much collected fine artist. His work is a hybrid of Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, of painting and sculpture, of delicacy and power, and of impeccable craftsmanship coupled with organic materials such as clay and metal leaf.
