Art opening reception: Texas Sculpture Group Member Exhibition "in-DEPTH"

Art Car Museum

As a participating space with the Texas Biennial, the Art Car Museum hosts "in-DEPTH." This all-sculpture exhibition by 49 members of the Texas Sculpture Group provides a regional overview of current artistic practices in metal, ceramics, collage, wood and stone carving with a balanced combination of abstract and figurative, and serious and humorous works.

Many of the works incorporate natural materials specific to the Texas area where the individual artists work thus generating a truly Texas-made exhibition. "in-DEPTH" investigates a trend in Texas sculpture toward natural themes and materials.

Houston artist James Ciosek uses firearms to carve lace-like patterns into found corrugated tin pieces; Corpus Christi artist Greg Reuter creates remarkable textures in iron and other metals; San Antonio artist Bill Fitzgibbons etches delicate lines and images into Baltic birch with an acetylene torch; and San Marcos artist Caprice Pierucci has an intricate, elegant carving technique that gives her pine sculptures a "woven" appearance.

On view through Nov. 15.
