Parallel Fields

Aug. 15–Oct. 20, 2019

Parallel Fields will feature works by Kathleen Elliot, Kaethe Kauffman, and Bobbie Moline-Kramer. The artists have a tendency to see through a hyper focused lens on things mundane to miraculous that ultimately leads to exceptional thought, creative foretelling, and compelling execution. All three extrapolate upon their concerns and personal visions, while balancing mystery with clarity.

Texas in the Abstract

Aug. 22–Oct. 13, 2019

The midcentury strain of Lone Star independence spurred robust, progressive streams of artwork that thrived within a burgeoning stable of home-grown artists. This exhibition will examine the progression of abstract painting in the state as it advanced across post-World War II Texas, tracing the evolution of expressionist themes and highlighting examples of essential Texas painters of the period.
