CURRENT EXHIBITION (main gallery):
CURTAIN CALL Ann Wood
Ann Wood is a native of California and MFA graduate of the University of Texas in San Antonio; Wood is known for her mixed media sculptures, wall hangings and site-specific installations characterized by vivid colors, wild and fantastical flora and fauna motifs, in a variety of media. For this exhibition, Wood will create a magical, canopied forest that will suspend from AMSET’s gallery ceiling. This site-specific installation is interactive and visitors are welcome to walk under and through the canopied, nest-like formation. Wall-hangings and other sculptures will also be featured in the gallery space. A video about Wood, her work and AMSET’s installation and exhibition will be featured on a continuous loop in the Conn Gallery space adjacent to AMSET’s main galleries for the duration of the exhibition.
This exhibition is generously funded, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Rob Clark and Jerry Thacker, Kathé and Jim Hendricks, Alexandra Irvine, the City of Beaumont, the Wesley W. Washburn, M.D. and Lulu L. Smith, M.D. Endowment Fund, the Texas Commission on the Arts and the C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers Charitable Foundation
