Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
5601 Main St.
Around 30 major contemporary Texas artists from every corner of the state will converge tomorrow at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston to celebrate the publication of Texas Abstract, a major new survey of 20th- and 21st-century avant-garde painting and sculpture that was published in December by Fresco Books. Those gathering to sign books and answer questions include well-known Houston-based artists Terrell James, Pat Colville and Gertrude Barnstone, as well as painters from El Paso, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. (See full list at bottom of story.)
The book was co-written by Denver-based art critic Michael Paglia and Jim Edwards, the director of the UAC Contemporary Art Gallery at Houston Baptist University.
