Beaumont Events

There's always something big happening in Beaumont, Texas! With our well-known fairs and festivals, each change of season offers another must-see event. And when it comes to food & shopping, we get serious. We don't like to brag or anything, but our food is worth planning an event around - which is why we have food festivals for all of our favorite dishes in southeast Texas. Beaumont also has an eclectic mix of museums that celebrate everything from art to energy. Our quirky-ness is portrayed throughout these museums that offer a variety of arts & culture exhibits and events. Parents, the kids will love Free Family Arts Day offered quarterly by the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. Plenty of other events just for kids can be found happening year 'round as well.

In Beaumont, we tend to do things a little bigger than other places in Texas. That's especially true of the performing arts you'll find here. Spread throughout the city are world-class concert halls, theaters and arenas that bring the best in performing arts to Beaumont. These same great facilities, along with nightlife hotspots, also support a host of live entertainment acts that can be enjoyed regularly.

Fan-friendly Beaumont has a true love for the game. From watching the Lamar University Cardinals football team bring home a win, to experiencing the hard-hitting action of the Spindletop Roller Girls roller derby team, there are plenty of sporting events to be found in Beaumont. Beaumont may owe its prosperity to oil, but it's not the only natural resources we're blessed to have. With dense forests, sandy beaches and shallow wetlands, southeast Texas is overflowing with outdoor activities. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself down to Beaumont, and experience Texas with a little something extra!

In the Garden of Ozymandias, which will include a selection of Celia Eberle's surreal mixed media sculpture of diverse and mesmerizing materials highlighting the basic nature of the human experience. Her media, which include animal bones, wire, marble, jasper, agate, wood, coral, brass, newsprint, cardboard and other found objects communicate the artist's quirky imagination with technical proficiency in a myriad of materials.

For over two decades, she has drawn on an expanded concept of explanatory mythology in an effort to understand many complex phenomena concerning the human condition. She chooses imagery based either on its ubiquity or the pervasiveness of an attendant idea. Over the years, she has used many mediums and approaches to tackle this core issue. In the Garden of Ozymandias is a survey of these efforts.

Celia Eberle: In the Garden of Ozymandias is organized by AMSET and is funded, in part, by the Wesley W. Washburn, M.D. and Lulu L. Smith, M.D. Endowment Fund, the Helen Caldwell Locke and Curtis Blakey

Locke Charitable Trust, the C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers Charitable Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the City of Beaumont.

Opening Reception: 5-7 p.m., Saturday, September 27, 2014.

Dornith Doherty: Oasis Exhibition

This exhibition documents two international seed banks with microscopic precision and ethereal beauty. Focusing on x-rays at seed bank facilities where research is conducted and routinely used for viability assessments of accessioned seeds, Doherty documents and subsequently collages the seeds and tissue samples that are maintained in these research collections.

The amazing visual power of magnified x-ray images, which springs from the technology's ability to record what is invisible to the human eye, illuminates her considerations not only of the complex philosophical, anthropological, and ecological issues surrounding the role of science and human agency in relation to gene banking, but also of the poetic questions about life and time on a macro and micro scale. Doherty is struck by the power of these tiny plantlets and seeds (many are the size of a grain of sand) which generate life and endure the time span central to the process of seed banking.

"As landscapes around the world become more arid due to climate change, seed banks play an important role in ensuring the future survival of our plant life and food supply," states Doherty. "These facilities can be regarded as a type of oasis; a verdant island surrounded by desert which provides a safe place of refuge and rejuvenation."

Oasis is part of a larger project, Archiving Eden, which Doherty has been working on since 2008 in an ongoing collaboration with renowned biologists at seed banks in the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Norway, Australia and Brazil.

Dornith Doherty: Oasis is organized by AMSET and funded, in part, by the Wesley W. Washburn, M.D. and Lulu L. Smith, M.D. Endowment Fund, the Helen Caldwell Locke and Curtis Blakey Locke Charitable Trust, the C. Homer and Edith Fuller Chambers Charitable Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the City of Beaumont.
