Located in Historic Downtown Bryan, the SEAD Gallery is home to the work of both local artists and artists from across the state. The SEAD Gallery is a retail gallery, meaning that everything on display is for sale, but the main purpose of the gallery is to provide a space for the Bryan and College Station community to engage in artwork to which they would not otherwise be exposed. By hosting exhibits and events, their parent company, Advent GX looks to inspire change and to discover new ways to impact the community and the world.

Every month the SEAD Gallery offers a new exhibit with artists ranging from the Bryan community to international artists from countries such as Belgium and Finland.

From August 18 to October 10, the SEAD Gallery will feature the works of world-renowned singer/songwriter, Sam Baker. Known in Bryan for his performances at Grand Stafford Theater, Baker’s exhibit brings a familiar face into the SEAD Gallery. His exhibit, “Everyone is at the mercy of another one’s dream” features some of his newest works in various mediums such as music, postcards, and oil paintings. His pieces have been featured in many distinguished publications, including Rolling Stone Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. 

Beginning his work in the visual arts in 2009, Baker shares his life experiences through his art. One of his more prominent stories includes surviving a deadly attack in Peru.  On a bus heading to Machu Picchu in 1986, a terrorist bomb hit the bus that Baker was on, killing most of the passengers and leaving him with injuries that required him to relearn how to walk, move, and speak. Baker now sees beauty in everything around him, and lives by the words, “life is a gift.”

He says “gratitude for what remains is more helpful than resentment for what was lost.  Ultimately, I came to understand that these days are wicked short and terribly beautiful.  All I’ve got is this one breath, and if I’m lucky, I get another.”

The SEAD Gallery is located in the Federal Building at 216 W. 26th Street in Downtown Bryan, Texas. Sam Baker’s work will be on display until October 10 and admission is free.
