Of Texas Rivers and Texas Art Touring Exhibition


In the upcoming Of Texas Rivers and Texas Art exhibition and publication, Andrew Sansom, a leading Texas conservationist, and William E. Reaves, an influential Texas art collector and historian, have teamed up to showcase a compilation of some of the finest contemporary river art detailing the gorgeous traits of Texas landscapes.
