This exhibition highlights the long running series of art books published by the TAMU Press. The Frank H. Wardlaw Art Collection was developed alongside the publishing of these books when each featured artist donated a painting to the collection. Visitors to the exhibition can see the original painting and thumb through the book it was published in. An exhibition catalog is also available.
