Transcript HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group David Adickes 1894 Houston (Bird’s Eye View) 1954. Painted mural at the Houston Club (razed 2014); photography by Syd Moen. HETAG Newsletter No 26, October 2018 THE FESTIVAL OF EARLIER HOUSTON ART A year and a half ago some of us (rather naively) designated fall 2018 as The Festival of Earlier Houston Art. We weren’t quite sure what we meant by that, what the Festival would consist of or how we were going to accomplish it, but we had 18 months to do it, so no sweat. Well, the months flew by, and here we are in fall 2018. And, guess what, the Festival of Earlier Houston Art is a reality. Museums and galleries all over town are showing not just art that has been bought-&-brought to Houston (fabulous as that undoubtedly often is), but art MADE in Houston, by Houston artists, going back to the 1850s and coming up to the day just before Contemporary. This is a once-in-our-lifetime opportunity for Houstonians and visitors to Houston to see our own art – the art that is uniquely ours. Look later in the Newsletter for a listing of the exhibitions and related events that make this this fall the FESTIVAL OF EARLIER HOUSTON ART! Montage of Earlier Houston Paintings by Emma Richardson Cherry, Leila McConnell, Bill Condon, Lucas Johnson, Richard Stout and Beulah Schiller Ayars HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Next HETAG Meeting, Saturday, October 27, at 10:30 A.M. The reviews are coming in: As a Mexican I really appreciate the art, Isle from San Antonio Awesome exhibit – feels like MFAH at the library, Scott and Clinton from Austin Inspiring exhibition. Thank You, Pascal from Antwerp, Belgium Excelente galleria, con toque y encanto de Mexico, Carmen from Mexico What a respite in the heart of the city. Gorgeous works! Jan from Maimi Wonderful and fascinating! Betty from Houston Hard as it is to believe, the dual exhibitions South and North of the Border: Houston Paints Houston, at The Heritage Society, and Houston Paints Mexico, at the Julia Ideson Building of Houston Public Library, will soon be coming to an end. I know that many HETAGers have already seen the shows - at the opening receptions, and on many subsequent visits. But as a bitter-sweet sendoff to this once-in-our-lifetime gathering of Earlier Houston Art (there are over 150 works in the two shows, spanning the decades from the 1850s to the 1980s) we’ll be having a curator-guided tour to both shows on the same morning. Mark your calendar now and join us for this celebration of Houston Art. (Details will follow.) The Houston Press and Houston Chronicle (among others) have taken note. HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group This Fall, Houstonians and visitors to Houston are being treated to a real FESTIVAL OF EARLIER HOUSTON ART, with exhibitions and events all over town. It’s an unprecedented opportunity to see and learn about Houston-made art from the 1850s through the 20th Century. Here is information about what’s happening, listed roughly in chronological order of date-of-creation of the Houston art included.

Kindred Spirits: Louise Nevelson & Dorothy Hood November 3, 2018 – February 3, 2019 Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Celebrating Louise Nevelson and Dorothy Hood, independent women ardently committed to assuming leading roles at the forefront of the American vanguard. Coming of age as artists in the 1940s—Nevelson in New York, and Hood in Mexico and Texas—they frequently drew inspiration from common sources, balancing abstraction and content as they synthesized the lessons of Cubism and Surrealism into the bold, new language of mid-century Modernism.
