Storied Lands - Contemporary Texas Landscape Painters

 Defining Texas Art in simple terms is like attempting to define the state itself. Just as there is no one Texas - Texas experience, culture, landscape, aesthetic - there is no singular quality that encompasses the artwork produced by Texas. The state is as diverse and wide-ranging as the people it embraces and landscapes they populate. It is with this in mind that Foltz Fine Art hosts its next exhibition Storied Lands – or rather three exhibitions surrounding this theme. 

 

Within the Storied Lands theme are recent works by Contemporary Landscape Painters, including  Mallory Agerton (Houston), Mary Baxter (Marfa), David Caton (Utopia), Malou Flato (Austin), Pat Gabriel (Fort Worth), E. Dan Klepper (Marathon), Ken Mazzu (Houston), Susu Meyer (Houston), Noe Perez (Corpus Christi), and Jeri Salter (Lago Vista).  These works, with their more traditional approach to capturing the Texas landscape will contrast stylistically with the second grouping of works in Modernist Visions of the Southwest, which will include more abstract works by Houston Modernists Jack Boynton, Herb Mears, Earl Staley, Richard Stout, and Dick Wray. Rounding out the shows with a third vignette exhibition, James Evans: Borderlands, featuring a powerful group of photographs of the people and places of our Southern Border taken by renowned photographer of the Big Bend region, James Evans (Marathon). 

 

The exhibition will be on view November 9 – December 21, 2019, with an opening reception Saturday, November 16thfrom 6-8pm.
