William Reaves Fine Art presents The Big Bend of Texas: Interpretations by Seven Artists opening reception
The Big Bend of Texas brings together many of the most accomplished landscape artists working in this area of the state. It includes a remarkable assemblage of paintings by Texas artists Mary Baxter (Marfa), David Caton (Utopia), Pat Gabriel (Fort Worth), Noe Perez (Corpus Christi) and Jeri Salter (Round Rock), all members of the gallery’s august society of Contemporary Texas Regionalists. In addition, the show introduces Houstonians to the incredible, large-scale drawings of Jim Malone (Fort Worth), as well as presenting iconic imagery by well-known photographer, Michael H. Marvins (Houston). Over fifty Big Bend inspired works are on view in the exhibition.
In addition to the main installation of finished works, the gallery will also host patrons for an opening-day salon-style revealing, providing a unique exhibition within an exhibition experience, presenting (and discussing) recent plein-air paintings by four of the subject artists.
The exhibit will be on display October 30 through November 28.
