Art Museum of South Texas

Born in Oklahoma in 1928, Camblin studied painting at the Kansas City Art Institute, earning an M.F.A. in 1955. He taught at at Rice University from 1967-73 with Joe Tate and Earl Staley, with whom he shared studio space. His influence was a constant undercurrent in the city’s art scene until he left in the early 80’s. Volatile and gregarious, Camblin saw himself as a vehicle for artistic inspiration, not always fully responsible for his highly personal, narrative polemic works. This exhibition included a series of watercolors and lithographs.
