My name is Davi Hecht and I am a Special Events Coordinator at Gaylord Texan Resort and Hotel in Grapevine, TX. I’m reaching out to you today in regard to our yearly summer events we host at the property. This year we will again be featuring an Atrium Art Walk throughout our resort. This Art Walk will feature works of art from local and regional Texas artists. We would like to include works that are loosely based on or could work in conjunction with our summer theme of Texas/Americana. Gaylord Texan is calling this event “Deep in the HeART of Texas Art Tour” We will showcase up to 20 artists in our resort with these pieces being on display from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Each display will include a bio, photo, and contact information for the artist. We expect 300,000 visitors over the course of the summer so each piece of art will receive great exposure in addition to adding value to our beautiful property.
In appreciation for participating, each artist will receive a complimentary one night stay as well as dinner for two at the resort. This will allow each artist to experience our summer festivities and accompanying Art Walk as our guest.
The 20 chosen artists will be contacted by April 14th.

Early Texas Art Exhibitions across Texas
August 27, 2016 – February 24, 2018
During the centennial anniversary of Georgia O’Keeffe’s time at West Texas State Normal College, now West Texas A&M University, this exhibition features art (primarily paintings & drawings) produced by American artists contemporaneous with her time at WTAMU (August 27, 2016-February 24, 2018). The goal is to inform museum visitors about what American art looked like “When Georgia Was Here.” Objects will be on a rotating basis of 3-6 months per object. The exhibition will be drawn from the PPHM’s own stellar art collection and from public and private collections nationwide.

Abstract Texas: Midcentury Modern Painting
Learn more about the Witte Museum’s renowned Texas Art Collection as you explore works from 19th and 20th century painters, folk artists and native artists that have been purchased for the permanent collection. Together these works provide a cross-section of the Texas Art Collection and also represent the powerful choices that continue to shape the collection today.
Staffel began his artistic career in San Antonio and took classes under artist José Arpa and Xavier Gonzalez, Arpa’s nephew. In 1944 Staffel studied with abstract artist Hans Hoffman where he learned a new way of contracting and expanding planes with the “push-pull” effect. His exploration of the push-pull, light and dark, would influence his work for the rest of his life. Discover his paintings, drawings and pottery in this amazing exhibition.

OPENING RECEPTION January 18 | 5 – 6:30 PM
“Julian Onderdonk’s work still influences the way visitors revere-and artists paint-the Texas landscape,” said William Keyse Rudolph, PhD. the Marie and Hugh Halff Curator of American Art and Mellon Chief Curator. “It is exciting to share these works-many from private collections-with our visitors.” The San Antonio native and American impressionist is best known for his signature bluebonnets and of the Texas countryside; however, he spent his formative years training in New York under American artist William Merritt Chase (a fine example of Chase’s work is represented in the Museum’s collection, Mrs. Chase and Child, circa 1889). It is only after returning to Texas in 1909, that Onderdonk portrayed the distinctive surroundings of his state at different times of day and became admired by collectors. Julian Onderdonk and the Texan Landscape presents a select group of more than 25 Onderdonk’s paintings, from views of the Long Island landscape to sweeping impressions of the iconic Texas bluebonnet, bringing Texas history to light. The exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and coincides with the publication of Julian Onderdonk: A Catalogue Raisonné
by Harry A. Halff and Elizabeth Halff, who spent twenty years tracking down the works.
Midland, TX 79701
The new permanent collections galleries showcase some of the Museum’s best portraits and landscapes; this pop-up exhibition examines a different genre of art: the still life.

Featuring works from the Taos Society of Artists, the Texas Regionalists and many others, this exhibition explores the world of fruit, flowers and other objects that are the focus of artists’ study. Still Lifesalso incorporates educational activities, including the opportunity to sketch in the gallery.
This major exhibition showcases Arpa as one of the artists who brought Impressionism to the Lone Star state. Organized by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.

In the Spotlight
This collection is the product of Fort Worth native Larry Kleinschmidt’s love of art and determination to uncover paintings, prints and sculptures that have survived from the city’s colorful past. After countless trips to local estate sales, flea markets, antique shops, galleries and auctions, his collection has come to feature artworks made between 1920 and 1980 by many of the community’s earliest and most accomplished artists. It contains scarce examples of the motifs and painting styles that defined local art up to and during the Great Depression, along with works that exemplify the rise of modern art in Texas during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Many local artists rose to prominence during the 20th century. Their stories are preserved in the Larry Kleinschmidt Collection and sister collections around the city. It is Larry’s hope that these stories will resonate with you and that similarly-minded collectors will, in the future, devote their time and energy to discovering even more evidence of the fascinating connection between Fort Worth and the talented painters, printmakers and sculptors who have called this city home.

The Larry Kleinschmidt Collection of Texas Art
A message from Texas Art Expo…
Larry Kleinschmidt and Collectors of Fort Worth Art cordially invite you to attend the opening reception for The Larry Kleinschmidt Collection of Texas Art exhibition. In the early 20th century Fort Worth had artists and intellectuals who worked to make a difference in the city’s quality of life. Today their art is the evidence of who they were and what they accomplished. The Larry Kleinschmidt Collection of Texas Art focuses on this critical period in Fort Worth’s cultural history. The collection is the product of Fort Worth native Larry Kleinschmidt’s love of art and his determination to uncover paintings, prints and sculptures that survive from the city’s colorful past. Finding these artworks required years of effort and countless trips to local estate sales, flea markets, antique shops, art galleries and auctions. 45 selected pieces from Larry’s collection, representing local art made before and during the Great Depression (1910-1939) along with works that exemplify the rise of modern art in Texas during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, highlight this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit.
Please come to the opening reception on Friday July 10th, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Complimentary exhibition Read the July issue of 360 West Magazine or visit http://www.fwcac.com/?exhibition_detail/4424 – booklets available.

Pearce Museum at Navarro College offers Opening Day events for A New Look at the West that Excite, Educate, and Entertain
The Pearce Museum at Navarro College offers visitors, artists, patrons, and anyone with artistic interests a chance to explore the exciting, ever-changing world of Western Art through A New Look at the West. This large-scale Show & Sale opens to the public October 25, 2014 with a full day of events focused on Western Art at Pearce Museum.
The day starts out with demonstrations from artists participating in the show. At 10 am, artist Kara Young showcases her mixed media techniques, and will provide insight into the use of paper-making and copper smelting in her artwork.
Handmade paper is the “canvas” that enhances the organic, “soft” feeling of my creations. The unique nature of my work is in combining fired metals, paper, and other materials to represent nature’s process of aging as found in rusted metals, dry river beds, and stained stone walls.
Trish Booth will follow with an in-depth look at her oil paintings and the use of abstraction in her landscapes.
Vernacular and historic architecture along with landscape are the vehicles I use to convey isolation and otherness. Representational, yet surreal, paintings inhabit a twilight zone between reality and imagination. Abstracting the images to various degrees further incorporate a sense of mystery allowing structures and landscapes to read as symbolic spaces – as portals or refuges.
Rounding out the artist demonstrations is scratchboard artist Stephanie Ford. She will shed light on her unique method of art-making through a special, rarely used, media.
I use my extensive background in history to create detailed works in scratchboard. A subtractive medium, I feel many times as if I am pulling a scene from history out of the shadows. I create work on ink coated clayboards using tools such as hobby knives, steel wool, and sandpaper.
In the afternoon, from 2:30 to 4 pm, The Pearce Museum at Navarro College will host several professionals in the Western Art field who will participate in a discussion panel to explore the genre as it has progressed and changed. How do artists today define the Western Art genre? Is the “New West” movement counter to traditional Western Art? And what role can Western Art play in educating new generations about life in the West- both historical and current? These questions and others will be debated in detail as we attempt to navigate the genre.
In the evening, the Museum invites patrons to join us for a special dinner and awards ceremony recognizing the artists participating in the show. After food, fun, and conversation, guests move to the Western Art gallery to enjoy desserts and the opening of the sale. All works of art will be for sale and the proceeds benefit the Pearce Museum at Navarro College, helping support educational programs, events, and exhibitions that further the museum’s mission:
To connect with the past by engaging todays visitor through personal perspectives of the Civil War and the American West.
The opening events for A New Look at the West promise to be exciting, informative, and entertaining for all. Artist demonstrations and the discussion panel are free and open to the public. To purchase tickets to the Awards Dinner and Show & Sale, contact Pearce Museum staff at 903-875-7642.
