Donald S. Vogel (1917-2004): A Celebration
November 4 – December 2, 2017
Donald S. Vogel, along with his wife Peggy, founded Valley House Gallery in 1954. As a studio painter, Vogel allied himself with the temperaments of Vuillard, Renoir, and Bonnard. In his paintings, he created imagined worlds of color and light; contemplative works that exist as “moments of pleasure.” Early in his life he decided not to paint the hardships of his youth. Vogel studied at the Art Institute of Chicago where the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Nabi paintings were uplifting antidotes to his impoverished circumstances. The WPA Easel Project in Chicago gave him the prosperity of materials, models, and rent that let him work continuously. In 1942, Vogel moved to Dallas and received news that he won a coveted medal and cash award from the American Academy in Rome; however, the war prevented him from traveling to Italy. In 1951, he began dividing his time between the studio and the gallery when he became the director of the Betty McLean Gallery, and then Valley House. Through all the years, Donald Vogel always thought of himself as an artist first.
This exhibition celebrates the 100th Anniversary of his birth year.

Sense of Home: The Art of Richard Stout
September 23 – November 26, 2017
This exhibition celebrates the abstract expressionist paintings and sculptures of Houston artist Richard Stout (born in Beaumont, Texas, 1934). Stout is an acknowledged artist with a significant following in Texas and international accolades. He received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1957) and his MFA from the University of Texas at Austin (1969). His artwork is widely exhibited with critical acclaim, and he was named the Texas State Artist of the Year in 2004. In addition to establishing himself as one of the leading modernist artists in Texas, Stout also served as an art instructor, teaching at the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and serving on the faculty at the University of Houston for thirty years. Stout lives in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston, where he continues to produce expressionist paintings of abstract coastal motifs, lighted interiors and cave-like atmospheres. This exhibition features work from the 1950s through present day, attesting to the artist’s prolific career. A monograph published by Texas A&M University Press will be available for sale in the gift shop. Following the debut at AMSET, the exhibition will travel to the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi and the University of Houston – Downtown in Houston.

Flight & Fall: Charles Umlauf’s Dualities
December 12, 2017March 11, 2018
Over his long career, Charles Umlauf created numerous works that explored oppositional tendencies in the human psyche. Umlauf found the duality in human nature intriguing, leading him to explore classic notions such as good and evil, virtue and vice, and the sacred and the profane. His iconic sculpture, the Spirit of Flight(1959), celebrates one of humankind’s historic achievements. Yet Umlauf also created the harrowing Icarus, a bronze figure revealing a complementary theme from mythology. As Gibson Danes, former Dean of Yale School of Art and Architecture, wrote: “Umlauf is, in fact, more than one person, as most gifted people have to be. He perceives sculpture as being public and private, monumental and intimate, deeply religious and subtly erotic.” Flight & Fall explores these dualities and others in Umlauf’s art, taking visitors on a rich journey through human archetypes.

TEXAS MODERNS: BILL BOMAR

September 16, 2017 – February 3, 2018
Artist, collector, Fort Worth Circle member, and Old Jail Art Center co-founder are just a few descriptions associated with William P. “Bill” Bomar (1919-1991). Bomar was born and grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, though claimed by Albany, the hometown of his mother and extended family. His lifelong artistic passion began at the age of seven. He studied painting at the Cranbrook Art Academy (1940-41) and later individually with painters John Sloan, Hans Hoffman, and Amédée Ozenfant. Bomar lived in Texas and New York and then moved permanently to Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico.

Early West Texas Art 1853-1960

June 22, 2018 – October 28, 2018

Members’ Preview Thursday, June 21, 5:30 PM

From the earliest depictions of Paso del Norte by Henry Cheever-Pratt and Leon Trousset, to the 20th-century landscapes of the Purple Mountain painters, the far West Texas desert landscape has been a source of inspiration. This exhibition also includes bold portraits by artists such as Jose Cisneros, Tom Lea, and Woody Crumbo. Modernist works by artists such as Hari Kidd and Mago Gándara demonstrate the ongoing exchange of ideas in this region where two nations meet. Composed primarily of work from the El Paso Museum of Art and local collections, the exhibition will also include significant loans.
