To inaugurate its 10th Year Anniversary Season, William Reaves Fine Art presents an alluring montage of local midcentury masters. In Midcentury Montage, the gallery features an exquisite collection of period paintings by David Adickes, accompanied by finely sculpted foodstuffs by Henri Gadbois and recent paintings and collages by Leila McConnell.
The show offers a tribute to these three Houston greats, who all have been mainstays of the Bayou City arts scene since the 1950s, and are still actively engaged in creative production well into their eighth decade. Like the artists, selections in Midcentury Montage are fun, inventive and timeless. With three such esteemed local masters, the show accentuates the signature attributes of grand Houston art. As the gallery’s “season opener,” Midcentury Montage offers viewers a delightful segue into yet another highly-anticipated season of high art from the Lone Star state, continuing the hearty track record of prime Texas material that locals have come to expect from Reaves and company.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 19. There will also be an artist talk with David Adickes on Saturday, September 12 from 2-4 pm, and an artist talk with Henri Gadbois and Leila McConnell on Saturday, September 19 from 2-4 pm.
