William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art presents The Texas Aesthetic XI: The Search for "Texas" opening reception
For the last 11 years, the gallery has curated an end-of-season finale investigating the abiding attributes of great Texas art, posing the perennial question for all who care: “What makes Texas art, “Texas” art? The Texas Aesthetic series has been the gallery’s effort to engage viewers in an examination and celebration of the long tradition of Texas painting. By showcasing the content and style of a select group of contemporary Texas painters, they have attempted to not only convey the excellence of their present work, but also to rouse a greater reflection upon past progressions of Texas' visual arts fortunes… all of this to call attention to the rich artistic legacy which we hold as Texans.
This year’s Texas Aesthetic has been thoughtfully crafted to bring patrons the summer’s most complete Texas art opportunity. Besides a stunning array of exceptional Texas artwork, the gallery rolls out the red carpet in a series of “Saturday Soirees” featuring the best of Texas literature, music, film and libations.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 1.
