South by Southwest: The Art of Travers Green

Join us for a retrospective showcase of works from award-winning Fort Worth local artist, Travers Green (1928-2008). His “tight-loose” painting style, along with a unique scratch and splatter technique combine to create country-themed paintings to give the viewer a sense of place and turn the ordinary into something extraordinary. These watercolor paintings have been reacquired by his son from various sources to compile a collection never before seen together.

On display in the Gallery from December 12, 2015 to February 26, 2016. There will be a reception from 2 - 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, 2016.
