Amy Tolbert-Faggard – Visions from God
Art Museum of Southeast Texas
May 13 – August 1, 2010
The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) presents Visions from God, 15 paintings by local artist Amy Tolbert-Faggard, on view in Café Arts, May 13 through Aug. 1. An opening reception is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 16.
Tolbert-Faggard is an ethereal painter with a strong passion to pour out her creative energy in the form of still-life paintings and landscapes. Her artwork is largely influenced by Biblical scripture and created to give the viewer a spiritual experience.
“In my art, God’s word along with variations of light, color and perspective are used to create an aesthetic experience allowing the viewer to feel God’s presence,” Tolbert-Faggard said.
Tolbert-Faggard holds a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Lamar University. She currently teaches school during the day, and attends Lamar at night pursuing her dream of obtaining a Master of Arts degree in visual art with an emphasis in studio art.
