Visual storytelling at Beeville museum
An artwork exhibit titled “Marilyn Lanfear: The Struggle of Memory Against Forgetting” will remain on view through Saturday, April 14, in the Beeville Art Museum, located at 401 East Fannin in Beeville.
Drawing on her Texas roots and family stories, Lanfear creates powerful and vivid mixed-media sculptures and assemblages reflecting her past.
Lanfear incorporates wood, stone, paper, metal, buttons, cast iron beds, handguns, and measuring tools into her work, along with words embroidered on towels, burned into chairs, and stenciled on window shades, saying she uses whatever is need to tell her story. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
