Ann Wood is a native of California and MFA graduate of the University of Texas in San Antonio; Wood is known for her mixed media sculptures, wall hangings and site-specific installations characterized by vivid colors, wild and fantastical flora and fauna motifs, in a variety of media. For this exhibition, Wood will create a magical, canopied forest that will suspend from AMSET’s gallery ceiling.
This site-specific installation is interactive and visitors are welcome to walk under and through the canopied, nest-like formation. Wall-hangings and other sculptures will also be featured in the gallery space. A video about Wood, her work and AMSET’s installation and exhibition will be featured on a continuous loop in the Conn Gallery space adjacent to AMSET’s main galleries for the duration of the exhibition.
