It’s free and open to the public. http://www.mfah.org/visit/maps-directions/glassell-school/ HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group CASETA SYMPOSIUM in Dallas, May 13-15, 2016 at the Hilton Anatole Dallas. Registration details are posted at the CASETA website: http://www.caseta.org/sessions HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Exhibitions of interest: The Texas Aesthetic X May 6 - June 25, 2016 Opening Reception - Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 6:00 - 8:30pm William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art http://www.reavesart.com/Exhibit_Detail.cfm?ShowsID=152 Forrest Bess Paintings 05 MARCH 2016 - 14 MAY 2016 Michael Tracy Paintings 02 APRIL 2016 - 28 MAY 2016 HIRAM BUTLER GALLERY 4520 BLOSSOM STREET HOUSTON http://hirambutler.com/ JOSE ARPA SPANISH PAINTER IN TEXAS Apr 9, 2016 - Monday Sep 5, 2016 Panhandle Plains Historical Museum Canyon, TX This exhibition is the first major Jose Arpa exhibition since 1998. It places Arpa firmly in the pantheon of Texas artists who brought Impressionism to the Lone Star State and gives a more complete picture of Texas artists’ contribution to American and world Impressionism. http://panhandleplains.org/gallery.asp?pageid=7&galid=481 HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Earlier Houston Art history notes: Anna Belle Peck, a not quite forgotten earlier Houston artist In 1950 the three young Houston women in the photo below were students together in the school of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (now the Glassell School). Most of you probably know Leila McConnell (l) and Gertrude Levy Barnstone (c), who have been active artists here right down to the present. But Anna Belle Peck (1930-1990), the other eager young artist, is hardly known today. It’s not because she didn’t have talent; the examples of her work included here make that clear. She was exhibiting, along with her classmates, throughout the 1950s – even winning prized. But by 1960, she stopped exhibiting, and very likely stopped making art at all. According to the city directories, she worked for many years at the Rice Hotel, finally as bookkeeper in the laundry. After that she was bookkeeper in other businesses in the city. Her obituary lists her only survivor as her mother, so maybe life and making a living as a single woman didn’t leave her much time for art. Making sure that Houston doesn’t forget to look at the work of artists from our past, like Peck, is what HETAG is all about. (The portrait of Peck is by McConnell, done during their student days.)

For more recent directories you’ll need to consult the actual printed volumes in a local library, but thanks to the ongoing digitization efforts of Houston Public Library, you can dig into the Houston directories from the mid-1920s and before online at this link. And while you’re there, check out the other great local history sources they’ve made available. http://digital.houstonlibrary.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/citydir HETAG is happy to be working with The Heritage Society on this exhibition: This WAS Contemporary Art: Fine and Decorative Arts in Houston 1945–1965 Thursday, July 14–Saturday, October 15, 2016 The Heritage Society Museum Gallery The inaugural exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum in 1948 was a show called “This Is Contemporary Art”, combining fine and decorative arts. It was a concept, perhaps growing out of a Bauhaus approach brought to Houston by Robert Preusser, emphasizing that both were really art and that art was something to bring into all aspects of life. It was also the era of Handmakers, a cooperative of Houston artists making things for the home. This exhibition will use the 1948 show as a model for a look back at a time when Houston and the Houston art world were in transition from regional to national – even international – significance. Though the art and decorative items in the earlier show were not Houston made, this time we will be showcasing Houston art and, wherever possible, decorative arts and furniture made, designed and/or installed here. http://www.heritagesociety.org/exhibits/ HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Lucretia Donnell Newman Coke died the morning of April 27, 2016, in Austin, Texas, at the age of 99. As noted by Michael Grauer, she was the last surviving student of Frank Reaugh, the great artist of the Texas Landscape. With her death we’ve lost the last living link to Reaugh and his dedication to depicting Texas and to kindling the flame of art in Texans. Which makes it all the more important for those of in HETAG, CASETA, TACO and other such groups to make sure that such pioneers are remembered and that their art is seen.
