Birds in Art is an annual juried exhibition organized by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. This contemporary exhibition of 50 paintings and works on paper and 10 sculptures will include a variety of avian themes and habitats from a selection of international artists. It will also coincide with birding season in Southeast Texas. In April and May, Southeast Texas boasts one of the largest migratory fly zones in the United States, drawing birders from all over the world. This exhibition will attract both art enthusiasts and birders. The exhibition includes a full color printed catalogue.
tête-à-tête: Folk Art and Fine Art from the Permanent Collection - June 18 through September 4, 2016
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. This exhibition 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. These donations make AMSET’s growing folk art collection one of the most significant holdings in the region. The donations by David Bates and Dr. Warren and Sylvia Lowe will be complimented by other folk art pieces in our museum, featuring the strength and variety of this segment in our permanent collection.
