Coinciding with the opening of the contemporary New Show exhibition, the gallery will also showcase Robert Preusser: Linear Improvisationsturning attention to an incredible group of drawings from the late 1930s by the Houston prodigy artist, where his genius can be observed first hand looking at these nonobject works created when he was not yet 20 years old, and before the true arrival of Modernism in Texas art.

 In the  new year the gallery will be starting new traditions, such as Second Saturday Coffee Talks from 1-3pm at the gallery to visit with artists, scholars, collectors, and other Texas art enthusiasts.  The gallery’s first Coffee Talk will be held Saturday, February 9, from 1-3pm as we take a closer look at the works of Robert Preusser and the early Houston Art scene from the 1st half of the 20th century. Coffee Talks will be video recorded to help preserve the importance of oral histories in our community.
