Future Exhibitions



Abigail McLaurin: Tongues Talking
in Caf
é Arts –
March 13 through August 10
, 2014

These works are collaged from family photographs, home movies, and abandoned
pictures that McLaurin has collected over the years. These images reflect the southern
vernacular of Texas and inspire her narrative drawings. The stories convey a sense of ambiguity that can be both pleasing and disturbing without assumption.  My intent is to illustrate an emotional tension or awkwardness between characters, and to suggest the possibility of a deeper-rooted conflict.


Karin Broker: wired, pressed and nailed – May 24 - August 31, 2014    
Opening Reception: 6-8 p.m., Friday, May 30, 2014

The exhibition wired, drawn, and nailed is organized by the Art Museum of Southeast Texas.  This Houston-based artist’s exhibition will be comprised of collages, monotypes that utilize etchings, wired objects and large boxes.  AMSET will collaborate with the Dishman Art Museum who will be featuring printmaking and organizing workshops.  Although this exhibition does not include direct printmaking per se, all of the artwork is either informed by printmaking or incorporates preprinted materials.  Preprinted materials such as vintage printed metals are used in collages and assemblage box constructions.


Beili Liu: Chine – May 24 - August 31, 2014    
Opening Reception: 6-8 p.m., Friday, May 30, 2014

Beili Liu, Associate Professor at the College of Fine Arts, University of Texas at Austin, will create a site-specific installation with materials suspended from the gallery ceiling.  Her work strikes a balance between old-school emotion and progressive innovation.  Her ingenious use of materials and process are a blend of Eastern and Western sensibilities.  AMSET is hiring a professional film crew that will document the installation process.  The installation video will be on view during the exhibition.    



Zach Dubuisson: It Ain't Easy in Café Arts  –
