Deep in the Art of Texas

The Blanton Museum is currently showing Alternate Worlds: The Visionary Artist in Texas, an exhibition of paintings, objects and works on paper from the Blanton's collection by Swearingen and fellow Texas artists Eddie Arning, John Banks, Hector Alonzo Benevides, Carl Dixon, Peter Drgac, Mark Cole Greene and Ike Morgan. These Texas artists offer unique interpretations of our everyday lives.

Thanks for the information about Texas art. Other good books about the subject that the Library has are "Texas: 150 Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston" by Alison de Lima Greene, "Lone Star Regionalism: the Dallas Nine and their Circle, 1928 - 1945", and "Art for History's Sake: the Texas Collection of the Witte Museum."
