VIDEO David Bates: Magnolias, Beer Bottles, Big Bundle of Fish

by Anne Bothwell 13 Feb 2014 11:12 AM

Tune in at noon to hear Krys Boyd talk to David Bates on Think. And enjoy this “From the Vaults” video of Bates talking about his work.


Art&Seek followers know that Dallas artist David Bates has two major exhibitions running simultaneously at two different museums. His sculpture is on view at the Nasher Sculpture Center and his paintings are at The Modern in Fort Worth. Quite an unprecedented achievement.

Bates is Krys Boyd’s guest on Think today at noon. And you can get all the details about his current shows from Jerome Weeks’ recent report on KERA FM.

But we thought you’d also be interested in this video we unearthed, part of the Deep In the Arts series on KERA TV. Bates talks about how he was drawn to magnolias, beer bottles and a big bundle of fish. Enjoy!
