Art Department Boasts New Exhibit

Baylor's Martin Museum of Art will soon be displaying pieces by two new artists, Richard Ash and Armin Mersmann. The exhibit will run from Oct. 21 through Nov. 18. The pair will also do a series of gallery talks at the exhibit.

Richard Ash has been a recognized artist since 1980, and has a strong passion for the printing process. His work has been in exhibits across the United States, including several public collections at the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, and the Los Angeles Print Society in Los Angeles.

German born Armin Mersmann knew that he wanted to be an artist from a very young age, and today he is one of the foremost graphic realists in America. He has received numerous awards, including recognition as Artist Magazine's Top 100 Portrait Artists, and he received the Excellence in Technique award from the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art in Midland, Mich.

The Martin Museum of Art is located inside Baylor's Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center in Waco, Texas. All events are free and open to the public.
