Orna Feinstein: Now and Zen - Fifteen Years of Contemporary Printmaking – 

September 25, 2015 through November 29, 2015    

Opening Reception: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., Friday, September 25

Orna Feinstein, who currently resides and works in Houston, received her BFA from the University of Houston in 2008. Feinstein specializes in monoprints, sculptures and site-specific installations, and in this exhibition, will be sharing work from the last fifteen years of her career with Southeast Texas audiences. Her artworks are vivid and dimensional, engaging the viewer’s senses as shapes and lines shift before us, integrating two and three dimensions through her amalgamation of colors, lines, shapes and textures. Feinstein will also work with the AMSET curatorial department to create a site-specific installation for her exhibition. This instillation will engage the viewer as they are surrounded by Feinstein’s work, making audience participation an integral part of the exhibition experience. 

Michael Kennaugh: Locus in Quo – 

September 25, 2015 through November 29, 2015    

Opening Reception: 6:30-8:30 p.m., Friday, September 25


This fall 2015, we welcome Houston artist Michael Kennaugh for his first solo exhibition at AMSET. Kennaugh currently lives and works in Houston, but was born in Casper, Wyoming. He moved to Texas in 1965, and graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont with his BFA in 1986 and from the University of North Texas in Denton with his MFA in 1990. Kennaugh is known for his large, painterly abstract canvases with arabesque forms that lyrically sweep across the plane. Firmly grounded in drawing as his foundation, Kennaugh builds on these initial lines and creates shapes through an additive and subtractive process. He further develops his compositions with decisive and layered applications of grisaille tones and color hues as demanded by the shapes, yielding a physically invigorating and dynamic creation. This exhibition will feature many new works on canvas, as well as selected drawings and sculptures, which are akin to Kennaugh’s paintings in their focus on line, shape and form.
