ART from moderndallas.weekly — Texas Art in a Day & gallery openings

texas art in a day

by Todd Camplin

What an incredible cross Texas adventure I had this weekend. I started in east Texas
and drove down to Houston. My goal was to pick up an artist’s work and to visit the
Texas Contemporary Art Fair. I arrived in Houston early and apparently all the art
venues and galleries don’t open until 11 on Saturday except for the Contemporary
Art Museum Houston, which was open at 10 in the morning. I spent a good 40 minutes
looking at work that was trying too hard to be non-commercial, which seems to be
CAMH’s speciality to a fault. However, Nathaniel Donnett’s installation in black was
the most engrossing experience I have had at the museum. I felt swallowed up
by the experience.

Moving from the non-commercial to the extremely commercial, I found myself at the
door of the Texas Contemporary Art Fair before right they opened. I was taken back
by the short line to get in this year. I guess all the other gallery openings, and coming
off the long weekend, pulled people away from the fair.
