Liz Ward: Time and Temperature
October 13 – November 15, 2014

Time and Temperature by Liz Ward is a grouping of meticulous watercolors and silverpoint drawings that communicate the artist's concern for "what nature so effortlessly creates and we so thoughtlessly destroy." Her colorful organic abstractions that reference specific examinations of nature - the gradual growth of tree rings, the melting of glaciers, the flow of water over time - are haunting allusions to incremental damage and irreparable loss.

Liz Ward's work is included in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Austin Museum of Art, the Menil Collection and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and corporate collections including American Airlines, American Express and Houston Industries, as well as over 200 private collections. She was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and currently lives and works in the San Antonio area where she has taught at Trinity University since 1999 and where she has been chair of the Department of Art & Art History since 2012. She received her B.F.A from the University of New Mexico and her M.F.A. in painting from the University of Houston. Her work has been exhibited widely in Texas and throughout the United States and internationally in Paris, France and Bern, Switzerland.
