In addition to his place as the old master of Lone Star Art, Frank Reaugh was responsible for the development of a subsequent generation of Texas painters, his list of students and protégées reading like a star-studded roll of Texas talent. Reaugh's art commands renewed acclaim later this year (and next) as the subject of highly anticipated books, an exhibition and a documentary film. With all of this activity, Reaugh seems to finally be getting his day, the spotlight of academic examination long overdue and well deserved for such a veritable giant among Texas painters.

In On the Trail of Frank Reaugh, Round Rock artist Jeri Salter offers a moving artistic tribute to the enduring legacy of the great artist.

An opening reception will be held on April 4, 6-8:30 p.m. On April 26, 2 p.m., the gallery will screen excerpts of filmmaker Marla Fields' documentary Pastel Poet of the Texas Plains.

On view through May 2.
