Texas Art Expo On Tap for October
This affordable, intimate and usually packed show is open to dealer’s, galleries and self-representing artists focusing on Early Texas Art.
FORT WORTH, TX–The Show and Sale of Early Texas Art will be back at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center October 9-10, 2015. Now run by Urban Art & Antiques, LLC the show was produced for more than a decade of production by the Collectors of Fort Worth Art. The show has been moved to October from August at the request of dealers.
“This is and has always been a well-attended, targeted show,” says Eric Miller, co-owner of Urban Art & Antiques, LLC. “The collectors are looking primarily for paintings by Texas artists from the mid 20th Century and before.”
The show includes a dozen or more dealers displaying oil and watercolor paintings, prints, drawings, and other works by Texas artists, including several self-representing artists displaying their earlier work.
“The term ‘Early Texas Art’ can be a little misleading,” Miller says explaining that works from as late as the 1970s can be included. “It’s not only landscapes and western scenes, but includes abstract and modern work.
“Early Texas Art includes a wealth of variety and style.”
Since taking on the show from the Art Collectors of Fort Worth, Miller says both attendance and the number and quality of offerings has continued to improve.
“This is a show the best dealers in the state won’t miss,” Miller says.
