at Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University
by Todd Camplin

When visiting the dark halls of the Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University, I have
often been struck by how relatively humble the space is compared to the rest of
the university. Don't get me wrong, it is nice to even have an art museum at all
on a campus, but for some reason, when I visit Baylor, I somehow expect
something a bit more grandiose. After all their new stadium is pretty impressive,
but even the Dallas Cowboys had the forethought to include a little art
to class up the joint.

If you are on your way to Austin or you just want to visit Waco, the Martin Museum of Art is just
off I35 and you can hop off, take a quick peek and pop back on the road. The show is up
until September 20th. And while you are in Waco, check out the Noel Kalmus & Jenna
Foster show at the Waco Art Center going on until September 12th. It was kind of a curve
ball show and I am still trying to rap my head around what I saw.

of negative space seem to vibrate like an old Furturist painting. Her figures imply movement as
lines overlap lines. Researching her personal website, I also ran cross more of her drawings not in
the show, but those drawings also reflect a movement through her sketchy lined drawing. Of
course the pictures online do not do her work justice at all, because of the delicate line a
photograph cannot come close to experiencing the work.
