Lone Star Visions: Selections from the Barrett Collection of Contemporary Texas Art
J. Wayne Stark Galleries
May 25 – August 6, 2017
This exhibition highlights works formerly owned by prominent Texas art collectors Richard and Nona Barrett of Dallas. In 2003, the Barretts gave about 250 works to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, which, with their blessing, then distributed about half of that collections to 13 museums around the state, including the J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University. Featuring contemporary Texas artists such as Randy Twaddle, Earl Staley and Gail Siptak, the exhibition will include paintings, works on paper and sculpture.
