Transcript HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Houston Paints Mexico at the Ideson Building, Houston Public Library HETAG Newsletter No 25, August/September 2018 The HETAG and Exhibitions Issue Both halves of the dual exhibition South and North of the Border are now open – Houston Paints Houston at The Heritage Society and Houston Paints Mexico at the Ideson Building of Houston Public Library. By my count these are the 11th and 12th exhibitions of EarlierHouston Art that HETAG or HETAGers have had a big part in mounting. We couldn’t have done them without our institutional partners (join The Heritage Society!; Support Houston Public Library!), but without us they might not have done them either, so this month we’ll look back at the exhibitions of Earlier Texas Art we’ve accomplished together. Houston Paints Houston at The Heritage Society The Houston Chronicle and Houston Press (among others) have taken note. HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Next HETAG Meeting, Sunday, September 16, 2018, 2 pm. Erik Sprohge Night Wanderer I 1982 Oil stick on art board HETAGers Helen and Erik Sprohge have invited HETAG to their home for a social hour and a chance to see the art and studio of Erik, who has been making art in Houston since the 1940s. We will also get to see the art of Erik's father, Paul Sprohge. Both Erik and Paul are included in the exhibition South and North of the Border: Houston Paints Mexico on view in the Ideson Building of Houston Public Library until November 10, 2018. I’ll be sending details, including directions, soon, but put the event on your calendar now. Paul Sprohge Untitled [Mexican Market] 1963 Paper lithograph HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group HETAG AND EXHIBITONS – A LOOK BACK: Over the past 15 years, HETAG has partnered with a number of Houston cultural organizations to present exhibitions of Earlier Houston Art. To be specific, those partners have been The Heritage Society, The Houston Public Library, The O’Kane Gallery at The University of Houston Downtown and the Fondren Library of Rice University. We’ve also participated in other exhibitions that we didn’t explicitly sponsor – one of those in Houston City Hall itself. Catalogs exist for most of these shows, which, taken together, go far toward laying out the history of Houston-made art through the early decades of the 20th Century. It is perhaps fitting that all but one of these exhibitions were mounted downtown, close to where Houston history began. Without these partnerships and exhibitions, Houstonians would have almost no opportunity to see our own art from earlier times – art made here rather than just bought-and-brought here – since our major art museums at the other end of Main Street are seldom able to show it (though The Museum of Fine Arts Houston has lent works to several of our exhibitions, and there are some related exhibitions on view there now). By now our record is getting to be pretty impressive, so it’s time for a look back – as a launching pad for our next leap forward. Here, in reverse chronological order, are the exhibitions of Earlier Houston Art in which HETAG or HETAGers have been major participants. 2018: August 25 – November 10 South and North of the Border: Houston Paints Mexico Ideson Building, Houston Public Library HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 2018: August 16 – November 24 South and North of the Border: Houston Paints Houston The Heritage Society 2017: August 12 – November 9 Planned, Organized and Established: Houston Artist Cooperatives in the 1930s Ideson Building, Houston Public Library HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 2016: July 14 – October 15 This WAS Contemporary Art: Fine and Decorative Arts in Houston, 1945-1965 The Heritage Society 2014: September 4 – October 16 Left Bank on the Bayou: Houston Avant-garde Art and Theatre in the 1930s O’Kane Gallery, University of Houston-Downtown HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 2014: June 1 – October 1 Houston Founders at City Hall Houston City Hall (Not a HETAG show, but organized by William Reaves Fine Art with the participation of HETAGers, so I include it.) 2013: February 1 – May 4 Emma Richardson Cherry (1859-1954): Houston’s First Modern Artist Ideson Building, Houston Public Library HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 2009: October 1 – November 5 Leila McConnell and Henri Gadbois: Side By Side O’Kane Gallery, University of Houston-Downtown (Not a HETAG show, but Leila and Henri are HETAGers, so I include it.) 2009: July 21 – September 27 Miles and Miles of Texas: The Lone Star State Through the Eyes of Buck Schiwetz The Heritage Society (Not a HETAG show, but curated by a HETAGer, so I include it.) 2006: May 2 – June 25 Houston Art in Houston Collections: Works from 1900 to 1965 The Heritage Society 2004: July 1 – September 26 Actively Working, Silently Waiting: The Paintings of Emma Richardson Cherry The Heritage Society HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group 2004: Fall Rice Institute and the Visual Arts in Houston, 1900-1960 Fondren Library, Rice University Catalogs are still available for many of these shows.
