Take A Ride To The Nave Museum
It’s time to unveil a new exhibit at the Nave Museum in downtown Victoria, and you’re invited to see it for yourself! Starting today, March 6, 2014, the Nave Museum will be exhibiting Ride: New Works by Amber Eagle. Amber Eagle is an internationally exhibited artist who works in many different media and is well known for her exquisitely crafted award-winning art cars.
According to navemuseum.com:
Ride is inspired by ancient aliens and outer space as well as the ancient and baroque culture of Mexico where Eagle lives. The ancient alien is used a metaphor for the stranger in everyone, as well as illegal aliens; and outer space as a metaphor for our mysterious inner space.
The exhibit features the worldwide premier of her new art car “Rosebud” and a series of work she has created while making the car. The car arrives in Victoria for the March 6th opening, having travelled the route of many alien crossings from central Mexico. Eagle’s exhibit reflects a collaboration with many Mexican craftspeople including her husband Guillermo Rosas and his wrought iron workshop, as well as mechanics, carpenters, electricians and seamstresses.
Amber Eagle will be present March 6, 2014 from 6 – 8 p.m. at The Nave Museum for our Member Preview. Nowhere but The Nave do Members have the exclusive opportunity to meet and mingle with the Artists, Collectors and Curators responsible for our exhibits. Anyone interested in becoming a Member can contact The Nave office by calling 361-575-8227, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or simply join at the door on March 6.
