CASETA is the Center for Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art.
The mission of CASETA is to promote the preservation, study and appreciation of Texas visual arts and its history.
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.

“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.
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.
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.

This year’s incarnation will bring pieces from heavy hitters in the Texas contemporary art scene such as Gary Sweeney, Sharon Kopriva, the Wheeler brothers, and Daniel Johnston, artist, musician, and subject of the 2005 documentary, the Devil and Daniel Johnston
Other artists include:
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.

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.
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.
