    Opening Reception: 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Friday, December 18, 2015

    Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas, is a world renowned printing press and for twenty-five years has published innovative and exceptional prints by both recognized and emerging artists. Printmaking as a fine art form has existed for hundreds of years. Recently, artists have ventured into new realms with the medium, exploring innovative ways of incorporating untraditional media and pushing the process to new depths. This exhibition highlights recent prints by 12 Texas artists, including: Ricky Armendariz, Alice Leora Briggs, Veronica Ceci, John Robert Craft, Suzi Davidoff, Sandra Fernandez, Annalise Gratovich, Jules Buck Jones, Sharon Kopriva, Linda Ridgway, Frank X Tolbert2 and Joan Winter. This group of both established and emerging artists evidences the breadth and originality of Texas artists working in the print world, and stretches the boundaries of traditional printmaking as they cultivate their oeuvre.

    This exhibition will feature the ceramic art of Linnis Blanton, southeast Texas native and adjunct instructor of ceramics at Lamar University. He received his B.S. and B.F.A. from Lamar University, and worked as an art teacher in the Port Arthur Independent School District for thirty years prior to his current position at Lamar. Blanton is well known throughout the area for his ceramic vessels and sculptures that subconsciously reference figurative subjects and the organic elements of the natural world in his shape, texture and form. AMSET’s exhibition will focus on recent works by the artist and will be Blanton’s first exhibition with the museum.

    MAX BEAN: You’ve Got Mail / Art features a body of envelope art by Max Bean, a self-taught artist in Southeast Texas during the 1970s-80s. Bean worked at a refinery in Nederland and was a body builder on the side. During his spare time, he enjoyed writing to his daughter, Tina, while she was out of state in the Navy. Bean created fantastical images on the envelopes of these letters, painting flora and fauna, riverboats, airplanes, body builders, “Conan the Barbarian” and other whimsical subjects. Tina took great delight in receiving these letters, filled with her father’s creative vision and spirit. This inaugural exhibition offers insight into Bean’s artistic vision and brings to light fresh artistic talent vital to the history of our region.

    Join the Art Museum of Southeast Texas for our next FREE Family Arts Day, "Fun in the Mud!" This exciting day will be focused around fun in the mud. Clay mud, that is! In conjunction with the Linnis Blanton ceramics exhibition currently on view, children and their families will try their hand at creating various types of sculpture with clay. There will be demonstrations in wheel throwing and firing, from the artist himself. Visitors will be encouraged to make their own clay vessels by experimenting with various techniques such as coils, slabs, textured stamps and pinch pots. Also, to correlate with the other exhibition currently on display at AMSET, HOT OFF THE PRESS, there will be an opportunity to particpate in several printmaking art activities as well. As always, refreshments and face painting will round out this full day of family fun!
