William Reaves Fine Art presents Texas Visions: Contemporary Texas Regionalism at the Nave Museum
William Reaves Fine Art brings its notable group of Texas Regionalist painters to Victoria’s venerable Nave Museum, presenting residents of the Cross Roads area a stunning assemblage of Texas subjects. The exhibition entitled Texas Visions features works by 15 of the foremost painters working in the state today, all affiliated with Houston’s William Reaves Fine Art, one of the state’s most respected purveyors of Lone Star fare. The gallery has gained notoriety over the past nine years for showing the best of Texas art from all periods, and one look at works by the fifteen artists included clearly confirms their spot in the “Best of Texas” category.
Participating artists hail from all across Texas and include: Randy Bacon (Albany), Mary Baxter (Marfa), David Caton (Utopia), Margie Crisp (Elgin), Keith Davis (Austin), Charles Ford (Houston), Pat Gabriel (Fort Worth), Billy Hassell (Fort Worth), Lee Jamison (Huntsville), Rob Kendrick (Austin), Laura Lewis (Mason), William Montgomery (Elgin), Noe Perez (Corpus Christi), Jeri Salter (Round Rock), and Debbie Stevens (Cypress).
Texas Visions takes viewers on an eye-popping waltz across the Texas art scene. While divergent in style and media, all members of the group work with Texas subject or narrative in mind. Striking images of a grand and diverse Texas landscape prevail, as do engaging paintings of the distinctive flora and fauna of the Lone Star countryside. From the Big Bend to the Hill Country, from South Texas to North Texas, from Panhandle to Piney Woods, from High Plains to Coastal Plains, the works contained in the exhibition adroitly capture and celebrate the richness and diversity of our great state.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 2.
