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.
