    AMSET presents Zach Dubuisson: "It Ain't Easy" on view August 14 through October 26 in AMSET's Cafe Arts.

    This exhibition features a selection of images from It Ain’t Easy, a visual narrative that is part auto-bio and part surreal fantasy.  It Ain’t Easy is about a boy trying to find his way to a better place. Led by a mysterious smoking figure and tormented by his own shortcomings, he must traverse a harsh ever changing landscape to find his personal Shangri-La. 

    It Ain't Easy is part of AMSET’s continued mission to feature local artists in Café Arts. The exhibition is open for viewing during regular museum hours: Monday through Friday: 9 am - 5 pm; Saturday: 10 am - 5 pm; Sunday: noon - 5 pm. Two Magnolia’s serves lunch in Café Arts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact AMSET at (409) 832-3432 or visit www.amset.org.
