The West Texas Triangle is a collaboration between five art museums in this region. Besides the Museum of the Southwest, the group includes the Ellen Noël Art Museum in Odessa, TX; the Grace Museum in Abilene, TX; the Old Jail Art Center in Albany, TX and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts in San Angelo, TX.  For 2013, the West Texas Triangle is excited to present the work of Danville Chadbourne.

Chadbourne was born in Bryan, Texas, with fine arts degrees from Sam Houston State University and Texas Tech University. He has exhibited extensively at both state and national levels. His sculptures are designed to evoke spiritual or primal states, using simple organic forms.  He is concerned with the intellectual speculation that viewers make regarding other cultures, especially primitive or ancient ones based on our observation of their artifacts.  Chadbourne works in clay, wood, stone, fiber, bone, and some found objects to create monuments and other dynamic forms. Over the years he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense.
