PROGRAM PREVIEW
May 24, 2017
"Golden Triangle Greats:
A History of the Arts in Southeast Texas"
Sarah Beth Wilson
Curator of Exhibitions and Collections
Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET)
 
Southeast Texas, internationally renowned for its role as a crucial player in the oil world, is a fervent breeding ground for the arts – generating a wealth of original, artistic genius of historical prominence throughout the twentieth century and into the present day. This session will explore the genesis of the early Golden Triangle art scene, highlighting pivotal figures, such as John Alexander, Katherine Green Baker, Patricia and David Cargill, Maudee Carron, Lorene David, Frank Gerrietts, Lilian Hayes, Herman Hugg, Jerry Newman, Will-Amelia Sterns Price, Robert Rogan, Richard Stout, Lynn Sweat and many others, recognized for their artistic facility and championship of the arts. Their admirable labors and artistic prowess assisted in establishing Southeast Texas as an integral component to the art historical legacy of the Lone Star state.
 
Sarah Beth Wilson joined the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in October 2014. Prior to this position, she worked at various art galleries in Houston, and taught art history with Lone Star Community College. She received her Bachelor of Arts in both art history and museum studies from Baylor University and attended Texas Christian University for graduate school, where she was awarded a full fellowship, travel grants and graduated with her Masters of Arts in art history. Wilson brings a wealth of art knowledge to AMSET, including curatorial, installation and research experience.  As Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at AMSET, Wilson envisions, plans, researches and oversees museum exhibitions from their inception, manages the museum’s collection and curatorial staff, and performs numerous other curatorial duties.

WHAT PROJECT WILL ROTARIANS TAKE ON NEXT?
The Service Projects Selection Committee is again opening the process for submission of new service project ideas with which the club can become involved. We have done some good work at local agencies that needed some assistance.  It was fun and very rewarding, and it's time to do more!
 
Now it is time to look ahead and consider where and how the Club can contribute to another hands-on project that can have an impact on our community. Give it some thought, talk to others and submit a proposal for consideration.
 
This is an on-going continuous effort; please submit proposal as a need arises.
