Arts & Visitor Center Gallery

Upcoming Exhibit

Exhibition Date:
January 12th - March 8th

This exhibit showcases the works of T. W. Vanya's Cowboys and Pretty Women.

His main medium is oil painting.

Artist Statement:

I started coloring when I was probably five years of age and took it very seriously from the point at which I opened my first box of Crayola Crayons. I still remember the smell. Do you remember the thrill of that smell of fresh wax when you opened the box? You knew you hit the big time when you got the 64 color set with the sharpener built into the back of the box. I still, at the age of 65, have several of my old coloring books. If you thumb through them, the margins are filled with the 'rest of the story'. The first time I visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston was in first grade. The first art competition I won was the Valentine Coloring Contest in Mrs. Morgan's classroom that same year. The first portrait I attempted was that of Julius Caesar in third or fourth grade for Mrs. Devereaux. My first illustration was for our 6th grade yearbook in Mrs. Miller's class - one of the most poorly drawn falcons ever rendered in India ink.

I've never stopped. I'm still consumed with coloring; cowboys and pretty ladies are the subjects that please me the most and I hope please you. Please enjoy the works.

Ars longa, vita brevis.

Previous Exhibit

Exhibition Dates:
October 16 - December 22

This exhibit showcases the works of Dmitri Kustov's Textured Fictions.

Artist Statement:
The subjects of my works are based on what I see in colors, shapes, textures, sounds, and forms that surround us every day. Through various processes and techniques, I create compositions, or as I may call them, inventions that are riddled with movement and texture. I enjoy a feeling of creating something completely unique in the world every time I work on a new painting.
