The Nave Museum

A Happy Life, An Unhappy Life by Mel Cannon

The Nave Museum is proud to announce our newest exhibit, “A Happy Life, an Unhappy Life,” by artist Kerry Cannon. The exhibition opens to the public on November 5, 2021, and will continue through December 26, 2021.

Delve into the bronze parallels of sculpture artist Kerry Cannon’s portrayal of two simultaneous lives. One takes place in modern times, immersed in a movie studio, surrounded by a vast medieval cathedral. Watch both lives as they grow, mature, and die. It is adequately defining the enigma of what it truly means to live a happy life.

Kerry Cannon has been a dual citizen of Australia and the United States since 2003 when he opened the Ceramic Break Sculpture Park to the public. The park sits on 40 hectares of land and houses three art galleries that feature changing exhibitions each year. Kerry’s sculpture garden revels around the immortalization of famous and infamous people and animals in the Parade of Heroes. Hallowing dramatic class struggles in the 19th and 20th century in the Proletariat Garden and the Crisis Corner has devoted to “whatever problem seems insurmountable at the time.” Other themes shown in Kerry’s Australian brush sculpture garden include Australian Aboriginal art, Australian history, and erotica.

The Nave is open Thursday and Friday from noon to 5 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 pm.

The Nave is closed on Monday through Wednesday. Admission to the Nave is always free, and donations are gladly accepted at the door!

Everyone is encouraged to see this beautiful exhibit. Memberships are always available, so call 361-575-8228 to find out how to join.

The Nave Museum will be enforcing social distancing, and face coverings are recommended. We will frequently be cleaning door handles and surfaces. Hand sanitizer will also be available to keep our visitors safe.
