Artist Talk: Palden Weinreb


Drawn from Nature brings together a group of artists for whom nature plays a pivotal role in the inspiration for, and execution of, their artworks. Sopheap Pich, Mineko Grimmer, Palden Weinreb, and Seon Ghi Bahk, artists featured in Asia Society Texas Center’s first-ever exhibition dedicated to nature, allow visitors to see its continuing impact in a contemporary context. Learn more

“I’ve always had an interest in the unapparent systems and structures that make up the natural world. The idea of an invisible framework for our existence fascinates me. Alluding to an unknown order in the chaos has always been a driving force in my work.” – Palden Weinreb

In this presentation complementing the exhibition Drawn from Nature, Asia Society Texas Center welcomes artist Palden Weinreb, who will discuss how the organizing principles of the physical world inspire his drawings and sculptures.

Attendees may enjoy free admission the day of the program to the Louisa Stude Sarofim Gallery, featuring Drawn from Nature. The exhibition runs through February 21, 2016, and is open Tuesday-Friday, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
