About the Artist:

Damian Priour passed away in 2011.

Born in 1949 on Padre Island during the Texas drought of record (1948-1957), Priour, a fifth-generation Texan, said he first experienced rain when he was three years old. That magical presence of water profoundly affected his impressions of nature and later, his art work. His signature materials - Texas fossil-laced limestone and green-blue glass - represented his deep attachment to the water and landscape of the Texas Gulf Coast region of his youth.
