This summer exhibition will feature works from AMSET’s permanent collection with a seaside theme. As stated in our institutional mission, we strive to provide education, inspiration and creative vision throughout Southeast Texas through our unique collections, exhibitions and public programs. Over the years, AMSET’s permanent collection has grown from 200 to nearly 2,000 objects, focusing our collections on contemporary Texas artists and regional folk art. The generous donations of our museum patrons, collectors and artists allow us to continuously build our collections. This exhibition of selections, solely from the permanent collection, will feature works that draw inspiration from our rich coastline. Gulf Coast Lore and Lure will entice Southeast Texans to view artwork that gives our area its regional appeal and artistic inspiration.
