Six women from vastly different walks of life, are held together by a single golden thread: their art. Out of the deep well of their individual experiences they work their magic within the solitude of their studios. The Nave Museum proudly presents the work of these six remarkable women: Elizabeth Payne, Mary Quiros , Mary Lasater, Barbara Sparkman, Nancy Bandy, and dorcas Atherton.
The Nave will kick off the festivities May 17th with its 3rd annual Art Car Parade through downtown Victoria and ending at The Nave. This a FREE event for the entire family.
Ann Harithas, event curator and board member of The Nave, has been a judge at the annual Orange Show Houston Art Car Parade for 25 years and is also founder of the Art Car Museum in Houston. For the fourth year in Victoria, Harithas will organize award-winning art cars from noted art car artists for display on Commercial Street in front of The Nave, along with a new exhibition by Irvin Tepper on view inside the museum.

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.
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 email@example.com or simply join at the door on March 6. We look forward to seeing you!

Eye to Eye: Regional Portraits of Pioneers, Founders, Leaders, Citizens, Movers and Shakers | January 16 – February 23, 2014
Along with “The Cattle Baron’s Daughter and the Artists Who Loved Her” and “Art on The Hoof,” “Eye to Eye” is the third in a series of exhibits at The Nave showcasing regional history through art. Portraits in this exhibit cover a range of styles and techniques, as well as providing windows to the past. What do you see when you stand “eye to eye” with these portraits? Steely resolve? Feminine beauty? Traits of character? You will certainly come face to face with familiar images. Finally, you can judge for yourself how accurately or convincingly the artist has captured the individual. A fair likeness? Well, that is in the eye of the beholder.
Art Spoken Here will be the first time multi-discipline forms converge under one roof when the Nave opens its doors to spoken word, musical and visual artists. The artists are from Houston, Austin and Victoria. For some, it will be a homecoming celebration, and for all it will be a chance to show the works that they feel best represents who they are as artists. The styles range far and wide – mixed media, sculptures, paintings and photography combined with the oral traditions of poetry and music to tell their stories.
