Golden eye … The Art Museum of Southeast Texas invites everyone to Go for the Gold on Thursday, March 10, for a chance to win $10,000 in gold or other fantastic prizes at its annual reverse drawing. Join them in the “Goldfinger” theme this year, as they encourage guests to channel their inner spy and dress in James Bond inspired garb (that seems to mean black to this columnist).


The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) invites Southeast Texans to shine like precious jewels at its 27th anniversary gala, The Crystal Ball: A Night of Sparkling Entertainment.

This dazzling affair, set for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5, will be overflowing with cocktails, delectable dining, fabulous entertainment and many spectacular surprises.

The Crystal Ball will honor celebrated sculptor and supporter of the arts David Cargill.
