Foltz Fine Art will present "Herb Mears: Memoirs of a Midcentury Master - A Fifty Year Retrospective." Herb Mears (American, 1923-1999) is remembered as one of Houston’s most active and visible figures in the emerging art scene of the 1950s and 1960s. 

Almost 20 years after his passing, this retrospective exhibition takes a close look at the development of Mears' work, displaying a wide breadth of works from the Estate, many which have not been publicly shown before, ranging from early works to some of his last. Amongst the works is an incredible grouping of late 1940s works created during his time in Paris studying with Fernand Leger, the 1960s figures, and architecture that we relate to Mears, and also later fauvist-inspired cityscapes and landscapes.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 21.
