NEEDLE AND HAND: STITCH WORKS BY TEXAS ARTISTS

New Innovations in Traditional Techniques Address Contemporary Themes with Bold Colors and Creative Textures

What’s old is new again in this exhibition of works by seven artists dedicated to sharing the power of hand embroidery in contemporary art. The State of Hand Stitch: New Embroidery by Texas Artists opens to the public with tentative dates set for mid-May at the Beeville Art Museum. The museum will host a closing reception, with the artists in attendance, on Saturday, July 11, 2020, from noon-2 p.m.

“The simple act of passing a threaded needle through a piece of cloth is even more relevant in our age of digital technology,” states Kim Paxson one of the artists featured in the show, “Each piece is personal to the creator whether it tells a story, universal or political, or embellishes a surface with exuberant color and texture.” The seven artists include Paxson, Debbie Armstrong, Beth Cunningham, Janis Hooker, Lucia LaVilla-Havelin, Mary Ruth Smith, and Pamela Studstill. Their work is included in museum collections, featured in publications, and displayed across the United States and internationally.
Many of the participating artists began learning their craft at their mother or grandmother’s knee, and after years of working as fiber artists, are transforming what some call “homespun” art into fine art, with variations in scale, style, and subject matter. Works in the Beeville exhibition feature a multitude of materials and techniques: finely-stitched words and phrases on linen; a large-scale piece embellished with embroidered Mexican folk images; single-stitched narrative works on social issues; fresh takes on the traditional embroidery sampler; and the combination of stitch with artist-made wool textiles.

"Leamon Green: Recent Work"

The Beeville Art Museum is thrilled with our 3 new exhibits. Since many are still social distancing, we are going to post virtual tours. The first one we are highlighting is "Leamon Green: Recent Work."

An exhibition of paintings, drawings, prints and collages by Houston artist Leamon Green, exploring the complexities of migration and African American identity in an increasingly globalized world, opens to the public with tentative dates set for mid to late April at the Beeville Art Museum. The museum will host a closing reception, with the artist in attendance, on Saturday, July 11, 2020, from noon-2 p.m.

Green’s work encompasses a world view, portraying the similarities and differences in cultures, with clues to the identities of his subjects in the patterns of their clothes, the surrounding spaces and situations, and often historical African or European objects scattered throughout. The figures are anonymous portraits of people who could be family members, friends, or even strangers, but all inviting us to share their experiences, past and present.

“My work includes references to art history, cultural history, and racial affairs,” stated Leamon Green. “In my series The Wrestlers, the starting point was seeing the Uffizi’s classic Roman sculpture online, which triggered thoughts about the state of race in this country.”

Currently Interim Chairman/Associate Professor of the Department of Visual & Performing Arts at Texas Southern University in Houston, Leamon Green holds a Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland. In 2007, Green received a Fulbright award to travel to Tanzania where he lived and taught for a year.

Green’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at galleries and museums including Hooks-Epstein Galleries, Houston, Texas; Galveston Arts Center, Galveston, Texas; and the African American Museum in Dallas, Texas. His professional honors and awards, in addition to the Fulbright Award, include Hunting Art Prize Finalist; Artist in Residence, Vermont Studio Center; Fort Worth Public Art Commission, Lake Como Workshop; and Master Artist, Visual Arts Scholastic Event.

Art to Go Kits are ready! Swing by the Museum and pick yours up before they are gone. The theme this week is "Chalk the Walk."

The Beeville Art Museum invites you and your family to take part in the nationwide “Chalk the Walk” project going on in response to the COVID-19 crisis. All across the nation communities are coming together to make a positive impact using sidewalk chalk.

Neighborhoods are coming together on driveways and sidewalks to spread messages of positivity, thank hospital staff and first responders, and encourage others to stay home in a safe and fun way. It is a great way to get outside and get creative when everyone starts to go a little stir-crazy at home.

After you finish your own masterpiece, you can head out on a walk around the neighborhood to admire everyone else’s. Be sure to use the #chalkthewalk to show off your creations and send images to [email protected]!

Richard Stout. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his children, grandchildren, family, extended family, the "Friday Breakfast Group", former students, and the list goes on. Rarely does someone affect so many people and so very deeply. As an artist with a passion for creating and a devotion to mentoring/education, he leaves behind a rich and strong legacy. We were fortunate to host an exhibition of his work in 2010.
