William Reaves Fine Art opening reception: Regional Connotations: Two Modernists in Cowtown Exhibition

William Reeves Fine Art

During the interior decades of the 20th century, artists in Fort Worth embraced their own distinctive brand of Texas Modernism. This exhibition explores the work of two of Fort Worth's foremost mid-century modernists – Cynthia Brants (1924-2006) and McKie Trotter (1918-1999). Influenced by the style and verve of the Fort Worth Circle, the now-famous modernist forebears of the 1940s, Brants and Trotter were among a group of young Fort Worth artists who celebrated and extended progressive movements.

While equally adept at many media, the two artists made their principal marks in different domains, with Brants achieving notoriety as one of the most inventive and accomplished printmakers in Texas, and Trotter emerging as one of state's most exhibited painters of the mid-century period. The exhibition features elegant prints by Brants along with a cache of fresh-to-market paintings by McKie Trotter.
