In the effort to showcase a wide variety of artists, genres, and styles, the AMA will host Ulterior Motifs late August through late October. This exhibit that features pieces from Texas contemporary artists was organized and curated by brothers Bryan and Jeff Wheeler, whose work is also included. The collaborative project challenges the viewer to explore traditionally held beliefs about art, religion, politics, social media, and the world we live in. This year’s incarnation will bring pieces from heavy hitters in the Texas contemporary art scene such as Gary Sweeney, Sharon Kopriva, the Wheeler brothers, and Daniel Johnston, artist, musician, and subject of the 2005 documentary, the Devil and Daniel Johnston
Other artists include:
One of the most iconic artists of the Twentieth Century, Pablo Picasso was introduced to ceramics in his mid sixties, and instantly immersed himself in the medium. Working of the Madoura Pottery in Southern France, he was given free rein to design as the mood struck him. Although known his paintings, sculptures, and graphics, the Spanish artist spent 25 years near the end of his life developing these ceramic pieces that speak to his imagination, wit, and quest for new and innovative ways to weave beauty and utility into a harmonious fabric.
This exhibit is thanks to the Rosenbaum Collection.
