Lufkin Art Guild Featured Artist Show

May 29 through August 4

The Museum of East Texas is pleased to showcase five members of the Lufkin Art Guild in our Rotary Gallery through the summer months. Selected works from artists Carol Athey, Bill Cameron, Teresia Driver, Suzanne Ainsworth Kouts, and Tammy Walker will be displayed for all of our visitors to enjoy. Below is a small sample of what you can expect when you come for a visit!

Carol Athey "loves the fluid movement of water and pigment, so I instinctively gravitated to watercolor as my first choice in art media." She holds a master's degree in art Education from Stephen F. Austin State University and has also been involved in many community art workshops in watercolor, drawing, oil, pastel, acrylic, ICON writing, photography, bookmaking, mixed media, and art therapy. Carol's art has been awarded in local, regional, and state shows. She usually paints with large brushes in a loose style with a limited palette by using the color bias theory. Favorite painting subjects are flowers, birds, food, places she's traveled, and elements found in nature.

Bill Cameron "took up drawing again upon his second retirement. He specializes in soft pastels and colored pencils. His style is traditional realism, and his subject matter includes birds and wildlife, portraits, and pet portraits. He is currently illustrating a book on gardening for his wife, Elaine. Bill enjoys selling his art at art walks, fairs, festivals, and online. He makes giclee prints of most of his drawings and endeavors to sell them at affordable prices to be enjoyed by all. He is a supporter of making Downtown Lufkin a Cultural District."

Teresia Driver "began taking private oil painting lessons in 1971, from Alma Henry in Channelview, Texas. In 1977, my family and I moved to Lufkin and built a home in Pollok." Teresia holds an Associate of Art degree from Angelina College and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. She spent 19 years working as an art teacher at Central Junior High. Teresia currently works at home in her art studio creating a variety of art. Her favorite mediums are oil and acrylic painting, collage/mixed medium, and sculpture. Her favorite subjects to paint are trees, landscapes, and seascapes.

Suzanne Ainsworth Kouts was born in Lufkin and graduated from Lufkin High School. After college, she came back to LHS and taught biology, anatomy and physiology, forensic science, and a few other science classes until her retirement three years ago. She now has time to enjoy creating art. Suzanne considers herself a colored pencil artist and has recently started experimenting with pastel pencils. She calls herself a "wannabe photographer because I am always on the lookout for scenes in nature to draw." Suzanne has been a member of the Lufkin Art Guild since 2012.
