Week of July 18 – 24, 2016

Export: Graphic Design in Southeast Texas, on view at the Dishman Art Museum through July 31, features locally designed work, including advertising, posters, brochures, web design, printmaking and illustrations. The wide variety of work shows how the field of graphic design is evolving and growing through the use of emerging technology, and also demonstrates how the deep traditions of the Golden Triangle region influence visual culture. As we reflect on the “exports” of our local design community, we can begin to imagine how graphic design will continue to grow and enhance the region.

Over the past couple of years, AMSET has received a wealth of outstanding donations from collectors across the nation, adding stellar and significant works of art to our permanent collection by both fine and folk artists from the region. The exhibition “tête-à-tête: Folk Art and Fine Art from the Permanent Collection” will focus, in particular, on recent donations of folk art to our collection by artist David Bates of Dallas and collectors Dr. Warren and Sylvia Lowe from Lafayette, Louisiana. The donations will be complemented by other folk art pieces in our museum, featuring the strength and variety of this segment in our permanent collection and be on view until September 4th.
