Charles Edward Williams, a native of Georgetown, South Carolina, earned a BFA degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions around the country and is included in the collections of leading museums.
Charles Edward Williams is inspired by the relationship between human emotions and our natural environment. He often chooses subject matter based on life experiences that have been humbling and sometimes traumatic. The psychological elements of his works are generated by personal and emotional responses to people, places and things. Each piece serves to orchestrate various viewpoints into a shared message of our human connectedness and commonality, which will entice viewers to explore from unfamiliar perspectives.

Diana Kersey is a visual artist who works in clay, creating both studio pottery and architectural ceramics. Her work possesses a raw, textural quality, with the clay encompassed in a translucent, earthy glaze. The birds, insects, fish, and flowers present in her work suggest a primordial narrative, while the underlying decorative grids and motifs capture the relentless energy, complexity, and contradictions that pulse through our contemporary society.
Kersey earned a MFA in ceramics from Washington State University in 1997, and a BFA in drawing from Texas Tech University in 1994. Kersey has served as an instructor at the Southwest School of Art and Craft, San Antonio College, and Palo Alto College. She has lived and maintained a studio in San Antonio, TX since 1998.
In its 30 years, the Ellen Noël Art Museum has amassed a permanent collection of over 900 objects which reveal the rich artistic and cultural heritage of the Permian Basin, West Texas and the United States. It is the goal of this collection to document the relationships of artists to their physical and cultural environments, as well as the technical and conceptual innovations that are part of the vibrant and colorful history of the art world. The collection represents over 200 artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Janet Fish, Adolph Gottlieb, Peter Hurd, M.C. Escher, Lowell Nesbitt, Rufino Tamayo, Victor Vasarely, and Peter Vogel. Works by established Texas and Southwestern artists like Luis Jimenez, Jesus Morales, Ned Bosnick, Dee Wolff, Frank Gervasi, Billy Schenck, Michelle O’Michael, George Tobolowsky and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith form a significant part of the collection.
