Draw, resist, and print! Join artist and art educator Sarita Westrup in looking to nature as inspiration for creating non-representational works on paper.

Avedon in Texas and Homer and Remington in Black and White

Special Exhibition Tour

View selections from Richard Avedon’s renowned In the American West, which was first exhibited at the Amon Carter in 1985 and has since become a touchstone in photographic history. The original exhibition created a portrait of the American West through its people, and this small special exhibition focuses on the photographs taken in Texas between 1975 and 1985.

Then view works on paper by Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington who were among the most accomplished artists of their day. While they both personally measured the success of their careers by the recognition they received for their oil paintings, they likely would never have obtained the status of American greats without their mutual involvement in the world of illustration.

Special Exhibition Tour

Meet at the special exhibition entrance for a guided tour of Invented Worlds of Valton Tyler. For more than forty years, Texas artist Valton Tyler (b. 1944) has depicted unparalleled worlds from his imagination. His captivating artworks feature unique interplays of identifiable, organic, mechanistic, and surreal shapes, which often rise from mountain, desert, or arctic landscapes. One of the only etching series he ever created, along with graphite drawings and large-scale paintings, are brought together for the first time in this rare exhibition of a local talent whose work defies artistic categorization.
