Transcript HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Gene Charlton [Untitled collage] 1959 March 21, 2016 HETAG Working Group formed: After operating as a completely by-the-seat-of-the-pants (dis-)organization for almost 15 years, HETAG is finally taking a step toward growing up with the formation of the HETAG Working Group. Tam Kiehnhoff, Stan Price and Sarah Beth Wilson have agreed to join me in brainstorming, and maybe even planning, for the present and future of HETAG. We’ll be getting together periodically for as long as we think it’s useful, to discuss meeting possibilities, ways to put HETAG on a more permanent footing, what sort of public face we need and anything else that comes up (which, based on the first meeting, will sometimes even include at least a little talk about new art we’ve seen, want or bought). Four heads are clearly better than one, since already some exciting new meeting opportunities are in the works and some possibilities as to how we can better get out the Earlier Houston Art message have been suggested. But all the heads of HETAG will be better still, so if you have any ideas please share them with us. HETAG sponsorship of the CASETA SYMPOSIUM: Many thanks to all those HETAGers who have got us almost to the Silver ($500) level as a group sponsor of the 2016 CASETA Symposium. Please consider joining the sponsorship group at whatever level you can, so that we can go over the top. Just send me an email at tibbits@rice.edu to tell me that you want to join (and for how much) and I’ll add you to the list. And, of course, make plans now to attend the Symposium, 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 HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Our next meeting will be: Thursday, April 14 5:30 pm The Museum of Fine Arts Houston Guided tour of "Statements: African American Art from the Museum's Collection" Althea Ruoppo, Curatorial Assistant, Contemporary Art and Special Projects at MFAH, will give us a tour of "Statements".

This lecture investigates the effect of the isms, from Impressionism to Modernism to Abstract Expressionism, as expressed through the work of Houston artists beginning in 1890, when the roots of our thriving artistic community were just beginning to spread. The lecture begins with Emma Richardson Cherry, the first woman documented to have painted at Giverny and the first modern artist in Houston, who introduced Impressionism to the Bayou City 1896 when she organized the first Impressionist exhibition in Texas; and continues, through the second-wave Abstract Expressionism of Richard Stout and others, down to 1960. In between, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Synchronism, Surrealism, Precisionism, Magic Realism—everything—even a little Realism and Regionalism, found their way to the city. Since Houston was a little on the edge of the art world, they all took a few years (or decades) to get here, but they all did.” http://www.mfah.org/visit/maps-directions/glassell-school/ Emma Richardson Cherry Rainy Afternoon, Giverny 1888/89 (l) and Richard Stout Nest 1958 (r) HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 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 http://www.heritagesociety.org/exhibits/ The inaugural exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Association (now 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 could really be 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.
