When Georgia Was Here
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.

Ongoing Exhibit
Frank Reaugh (1860-1945) was an artist who had early success and lived long enough to see himself referred to as the “Dean of Texas Artists.” He devoted his career to the visual documentation in pastel and paint of the Great Plains and the American Southwest.

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.

Rudolf Staffel: Gathering Light
October 6, 2016 – May 29, 2017
Journey into Rudolf Staffel’s world in the Laura and Sam Dawson Gallery with Rudolf Staffel: Gathering Light and experience a special debut of selected works by Staffel that the Witte acquired in 2014.
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.

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.

New Permanent Collections

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. Although they represent a small part of the Museum collection, these works of art give viewers an insight into some prominent objects in Southwestern art. 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.

Pablo Picasso: Ceramics
November 12, 2016 through February 12, 2017

One of the most iconic artists of the Twentieth Century, Pablo Picasso was introduced to ceramics in his mid sixties, and instantly immersed himself in the medium. Working of the Madoura Pottery in Southern France, he was given free rein to design as the mood struck him. Although known his paintings, sculptures, and graphics, the Spanish artist spent 25 years near the end of his life developing these ceramic pieces that speak to his imagination, wit, and quest for new and innovative ways to weave beauty and utility into a harmonious fabric.

This exhibit is thanks to the Rosenbaum Collection.

Mnemosyne – Opening Reception Feb. 21 at LuminArte

He Si'en - Experience Series -  Is said to be beautiful - 3 -120X70cm

LuminArte presents Mnemosyne, a celebration of contemporary figurative art. In this inspiring exhibition, international artists, including Viktorija Bulava, Esther Wertheimer, Ray Ferrer, Sal Zagami, Victor Frankowski, Luba Muravyeva, Cesar Santafe, Katrin Alvarez, Bruno Angel, Francisco Ceron, Chema Gil, He Si’en, Dick Nosbisch and Noir/Vogue exhibit with local artists, Jonathan Davis, Michael Pavlovsky, Rick Timmons, Luis Fernando Camacho, Ben Britt, Sergei Rodionov, Anja Yamaji and John Milton. The exhibition opens in tandem with the abstract exhibit “No Body, No Evidence, Right?” and runs from January 24th to March 14th; the artists’ reception will commence on February 21st. Both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Dream-FinalSmall

In Greek mythology, Mnemosyne was the personification of memory in Greek mythology. She was a Titaness, the daughter of Uranus and Gaia; and through her bond with Zeus, she was known for being the mother of the nine Muses. The exhibition, Mnemosyne is a sequel to the 2014 international figurative exhibition, Muse; and in this selection, the artwork encompasses the full spectrum of figuration, including Art Nouveau, Pop Art, Realism, Surrealism, Expressionism and Synthetic Cubism in the media of photography, sculpture, drawing and painting.

For many, figurative art evokes a certain kind of sentiment or emotional response. We are inspired by our memories and experiences, even in their abstraction; since the human brain tends to reconstruct the events of one’s life into an overall gestalt or narrative perception. We cannot help but relate our subjective experience to something tangible; and the most physical, personal reference is our own body. We relate to each other in a similar way, finding common connections by nurturing a sense of empathy. Figurative art can inspire this concept of connectivity, which draws upon our memories, our emotions and our life experiences. How we relate to art together as an audience can inspire social, political and cultural movements, yet can alternately restrict popular sentiment, as witnessed in the use of figurative art by totalitarian regimes and through other forms of propaganda. In this exhibition, we strive to free ourselves from restrictions and to view the liberating potential of art through the imitation of existence as inspired by the human form.

LuminArte Presents Represented Artists, New Works

"Undersea Eruption" by Lee Ables

“Undersea Eruption” by Lee Ables

LuminArte presents is an exhibition showcasing new works by represented artists as well as a selection of gallery favorites. In addition, we are presenting a roster of new artists to the Dallas art scene alongside a wide range of local talent. This all-encompassing presentation of artists from 25 countries opens on November 9th, with a reception from 7-10pm; and many artists will be in attendance. The exhibition runs through December 7th; both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Alongside Texas based artists, career US artists combine with esteemed international artists in this mega-showcase of multimedia expression. Many of the participating artists will be revealing their latest works in this must-see exposition of monumental international talent, with artists representing the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Portugal, France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Poland, Latvia, Russia, China, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Mexico, Jamaica, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Israel and India.

LuminArte is pleased to introduce the artwork of internationally acclaimed artist, Paul Lorenz to the DFW Metroplex. With an education in Bauhaus architecture and fine art, Paul depicts abstraction in its purest form, geometry. Bridging the principals and immediacy of painting, drawing and sound with the logic and detail of architecture, Paul’s artwork becomes defined by his multi-disciplinary process of expression. “Abstraction is not a style, but a state of mind…a way of thinking about action, time and circumstance, confidence and risk-taking, boldness and subtlety.”

A special presentation of paintings by Lee Ables will be on view, honoring his life’s work. Lee spent much of his life in Hawaii, as reflected in his bright, colorful abstract paintings that often depict volcanic activity in vibrant, undersea eruptions. Lee spent his later years in Arizona, where he recently passed away. He will be greatly missed; and we have been honored to represent his work at LuminArte.
