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.

When Georgia Was Here

Abstract Texas: Midcentury Modern Painting

October 1, 2016-October 8, 2017
This exhibition presents the work of some of Texas’s most significant contributors to mid-twentieth century modernism-Jack Boynton, Ben L. Culwell, Seymour Fogel, Michael Frary, George Grammer, Robert O. Preusser, and Donald Weismann. Although geographically isolated from the progressive cultural environments of New York City and Los Angeles, these artists pioneered their own abstract styles that reflect their independent ambitions within the Lone Star State.

Texas Art of Early Days to Now: the Witte Collection
October 6, 2016 – May 29, 2017
The Witte Museum’s renowned Texas Art Collection has been shaped by the visionary leadership of curators such as Eleanor Onderdonk, Martha Utterback, and Cecilia Steinfeldt. Each curator helped define Texas Art for the museum, the state, and the nation. In honor of the Witte Museum’s 90th anniversary and the legacy created by Alfred Witte and the Witte Picture Fund, this exhibition explores how these remarkable women shaped the collection through strategic purchases.

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.

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.

Julian Onderdonk and the Texan Landscape
January 20 – April 23, 2017
Every Texan knows, there is something special about Texas landscapes. What many may not know is how important Julian Onderdonk (1882-1922) was to Texas art and to the depictions of Texas landscapes.

“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.

Jose Arpa: A Spanish Impressionist in Texas
March 11 – May 28, 2017
Jose Arpa y Perea (1858-1952) opened a studio in San Antonio around 1901 and became an important part of the San Antonio school. Born in Carmona, the son of a cobbler, Arpa began studying part-time at the Academia des Bellas Artes (Academy of Fine Arts) in Seville, Spain, in 1868. He became a full-time student by 1876 and from 1882 to 1886 painted in Rome. Returning to Spain in 1886, Arpa sent paintings as part of the Spanish contingent for the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, where Impressionism was all the rage. He traveled to San Antonio, Texas, in 1899, and exhibited in the San Antonio International Fair in 1900. Arpa met Robert and Julian Onderdonk and divided his time between Mexico, Spain, and San Antonio until 1923, when he founded a painting school in San Antonio. Arpa continued to exhibit frequently at museums and galleries throughout Texas as well as New York and Spain. He won the “Texas Prize” at the Texas Wildflower Exhibition in 1927, and exhibited in the remaining two “Davis Competitions” in 1928 and 1929. Arpa permanently returned to Spain in 1931. This exhibition will be the first major Arpa exhibition since 1998, and is organized by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas. A full color catalogue published by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum will be available for sale in the AMSET gift shop.

These four people and their school enabled a network of aspiring artists, several of whom bonded in the 1940s into the progressive group known as the Fort Worth Circle.

In the Spotlight

The Larry Kleinschmidt Collection of Texas Art Larry Kleinschmidt


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.

Larry Kleinschmidt Collection of Texas Art opens July 10


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.

A New Look at the West Show & Sale Oct. 25

Wanted in the west

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.
-Kara Young

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.
-Trish Booth

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.
-Stephanie Ford

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.
