Ty was named one of ten contemporary artists in Austin to watch in 2017 by Culture List and considers himself an artist, writer, designer, activist, and filmmaker.

In addition to the influence of his uncle, sculptor & raku artist Conway “Jiggs” Pearson, Ty studied under American sculptor William Catling while attending Azusa Pacific University’s School of Fine Arts. Ty is a founding member of the Veritas Artist Collective, 5D Artists Group, and The ANWA Collective.

Happy Hour at the Baylor Club

Have a drink with friends of The Art Center at the Baylor Club! The Baylor Club does a monthly series of Helping Hands Happy Hours and August is our month. Free hors d'oeuvres and great drink specials! Cash tips benefit the mission of the Art Center to promote the arts in central Texas through educational programs, exhibitions and collections.

Anyone can come, whether or not you are a member of the Baylor Club or of the Art Center. There will be signature cocktails, live music by Chuck Jennings, live painting by Erika Huddleston (whose Art Center Exhibition opens in November), and artworks on display by Trisstah Wagstaff.

This is a great chance to catch the views from the Baylor Club and get to know Art Center staff, board, and other friends better. Happy Hour is open to the public, so bring your friends!
