    Houston artist David Aylsworth is well-known within Texas art circles for his stunning abstract paintings celebrating his facility with the brush, sophisticated understanding of color, and harmonious spatial relationships between form and shape. He is inspired by images around him, in both a mental and physical sense, and paints intersecting lines and shapes with luscious strokes, giving his works a sense of energy and movement. Aylsworth’s titles often reference songs and show tunes, at times giving his highly abstract, non-objective style, a sort of verbal and lyrical foundation. Born in Tiffin, Ohio, Aylsworth graduated in 1989 with his BFA from Kent State University, Kent, Ohio, and was an artist in residence in the Core Program at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from 1989-91. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Inman Gallery (2016), Morgan Lehman in New York (2014) and Holly Johnson Gallery (2013). His paintings are found in numerous private and permanent collections, including the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi.

    • 500 Main Street, downtown Beaumont


    Opening Reception: 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Friday, December 16

    Southeast Texas native Steve Murphy is best known for his poetically titled, minimal sculptures. Murphy attended Lamar University in Beaumont, followed by the University of Houston, where he received his B.A. in 1975. During his early years, Murphy focused on painting, but eventually experimented with sculpture; he is fascinated by the reduction of the essential elements of art – such as line, shape, color, form, space, texture and value – to basic, geometric forms, elegant in their simplicity and visual presence. He often works in series, allowing the design of sculptures to build on each other, exploring the creative possibilities of a form and the energy developed by a slight alteration in angle or line, allowing a piece to grow and mature in the series. This exhibition will feature sculptures by Murphy, created in his Houston home and studio.

    Protégé exhibition on view at AMSET – February 21 through March 26, 2017

     

    Protégé is a 31-year-old program organized annually to promote and inspire 12th-grade artists in our region. AMSET believes it is important that young artists have an early opportunity to enter art competitions and to learn museum exhibition practices. After the opening exhibit at AMSET, the works of art will tour regional schools.
