Foltz Fine Art presents two long-anticipated, one-woman exhibitions – "Mary Baxter: Desertlands of the Southwest" and "Jeri Salter: Canyonlands of Texas." Baxter and Salter share a mutual admiration of the land, history and culture of Texas and the greater American Southwest which informs their two distinct approaches to capturing its essence and beauty – one in oil painting and the other in pastel. 

In "Desertlands of the Southwest," Baxter, one of the most celebrated contemporary expressionist painters of the region, depicts her love for Far West Texas, New Mexico, and the greater American Southwest as evidenced through her paintings, which reveal a deep understanding and nuanced knowledge of these storied lands, based on insights she has acquired over years of living here as a resident, a rancher and now a full-time painter.  

Similarly in Canyonlands of Texas, Salter, one of the state’s foremost pastel artists and regionalist painters, captures the majesty surrounding Palo Duro Canyon - 120 miles cut through the Caprock Escarpment in the Texas Panhandle.  Carved and created over millions of years, this formation is the second largest canyon in United States (next to the Grand Canyon) with dramatic geologic features, multicolored rock strata, and steep mesas. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display until May 28.
