Online Exhibition

Museum exhibitions can be great vehicles for telling stories, offering historic perspectives, and examining the work of a single artist or a whole group of artists. One of the things that I have enjoyed the most about working in the museum field has been the opportunity to organize exhibitions on a variety of topics and featuring the work of both historic and contemporary artists. While there is no substitute for visiting museums and seeing works of art on a close up basis, the virtual world does offer an opportunity to create exhibitions that might not be possible otherwise.

We will be presenting online exhibitions in this space on a regular basis. We will explore a variety of themes and feature the work of many artists. Many of the artworks in these exhibitions will be available for purchase in the same manner that we use for our regular gallery artists. We will put the buyer directly in touch with the artist. We hope that you will find these exhibitions informative, entertaining, and enlightening. You will be able to view the exhibition as a whole and also to study individual works simply by clicking on the image. Viewing the exhibition and the individual works is a simple process. When your cursor is placed on an art work, two icons will appear: clicking on the magnifying glass will isolate that image in a larger format, clicking on the links icon will lead to more information about that particular work of art.

Each exhibition will remain online for only two to three months, so visit the site often to see what theme we are currently exploring and which artists are featured.

A Haven for Artists: Big Bend and the Davis Mountains

One of the state’s earliest and most successful art colonies was established in the region in 1932 in Alpine at Sul Ross State University (then known as Sul Ross Normal College). Over the course of three decades, the Alpine Art Colony would become one of the state’s finest programs for training and nurturing artistic talent.  It was presided over by some of the finest artists in Texas, including Xavier Gonzales, Harry Anthony DeYoung, Julius Woeltz, Coreen Spellman, Otis Dozier, and William Lester.
