This week our Cultural District neighbor, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History (FWMSH), opens a retrospective on American artist Alexandre Hogue (1898–1994). The exhibition, Alexandre Hogue: An American Visionary–Paintings and Works on Paper, includes more than 150 oil paintings, drawings and field sketches, primarily of Southwest landscapes. The exhibition is organized by the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi.
In collaboration, the Amon Carter is exhibiting one of Hogue’s major oil paintings, Drouth Stricken Area (1934), and two related drawings, on loan from the Dallas Museum of Art.
Both are on view from September 24 through November 27. Admission to the Amon Carter is free. For the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s exhibition ticket information, visit fortworthmuseum.org or call 817.255.9540.
Make plans to visit the Cultural District this fall!
