  • William Reaves Fine Art is pleased to present our sixth annual texas Aesthetic exhibition. Over the last half-dozen years, this popular series has served to introduce Houstonians to the top regionalist painters working in our state today. As the title suggests, the exhibition examines styles, themes and aesthetic forces which have graced texas art over the long view, and which continue to inspire our artists today. through this diverse array of contemporary paintings, viewers encounter a remarkable group of artists whose works celebrate the landscape, people and traditions which have combined to make texasdistinctively texas! From bluebonnets to cactus, mountains to plains, cowboys to cattle, its all here in one engaging art exposition, making this show virtually required attendance for every dyed-in-the-wool texan. little wonder it is one of the gallerys most anticipated events.

    this years texas Aesthetic vi features recent paintings by 16 artists constituting the gallerys stable of Contemporary texas Regionalists, plus a selection of fine watercolors by Houstons own Hunter George, the special guest artist at this years event. the Contemporary texas Regionalists hale from all over the state and members include Randy Bacon (Albany), Mary Baxter (Marfa), Margie Crisp (elgin), Keith davis (Austin), Jon Flaming (Richardson), pat Gabriel (Fort Worth), Robert Harrison (San Antonio), lee Jamison (Huntsville), Rob Kendrick (Austin), laura lewis (Mason), William Montgomery (elgin), noe perez (Corpus Christi), Jeri Salter (Round Rock), debbie Stevens (Cypress), Bob Stuth-Wade (dublin) and William young (palestine). the works of this group were the subject of a catalogued exhibition mounted earlier in the year by the San Angelo

    pursuing Texas in texas Art

    Museum of Fine Arts. in addition, their paintings have been curated into numerous museum and commercial exhibitions throughout the state, and can be found in significant private, corporate and public collections throughout texas and beyond.

    Aside from the texas-centered nature of their work, it is readily apparent that the group is comprised of gifted young artists. Across the board, composition and draftsmanship are consistently superb, resulting in painterly productions which hold their own with the best of contemporary output. in their paintings of the texas scene, these contemporary regionalists produce authentic work of a high standard, employing local subject matter to invoke universal chords. As such, we believe that this exhibition offers viewers a fair representation of the quality and originality of texas artists today, albeit with definite texas flavor.

    the exhibition also represents the gallerys final show of this art season, concluding an eventful and successful year. We invite all to join us for this season-ending celebration. not only will a visit bring viewers the pleasure of an art-filled experience, but also affords us opportunity to convey our deep appreciation for the continued support of cherished friends and clients, and to toast the interest and patronage which all have given to our cause of texas art. enjoy the texas Aesthetic vi and we hope to see you soon!
