Foltz Fine Art (formerly William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art) of Houston teams up with the prestigious Gage Hotel to host a holiday celebration bringing West Texas art enthusiasts an outstanding exhibition, featuring six of the state’s best contemporary artists at the Gage Hotel’s V6 in Marathon, Texas. The Houston-based gallery is acknowledged as one of the foremost venues for Texas art, focusing on early, modern, and contemporary art, and represents an acclaimed group of Contemporary Texas Regionalist artists.
With the artwork selected for this exhibition, we celebrate Texas Art in the location at the source of inspiration, featuring works by painters and photographers of the Big Bend region. For some it’s a place of life-long place of pilgrimage, others it’s a favorite travel destination, and a few uproot their lives to be in the presence of its magnificence on a daily basis.

Dan Klepper (Marathon), Noe Perez (Corpus Christi), Jeri Salter (Lago Vista), Earl Staley (Houston), Bob Stuth-Wade (Dublin).
