Join the J.R. Mooney Galleries of Fine Art - Boerne
on Saturday Nov. 7, 2015 from 4 pm to 8 pm for an exciting
evening of Fine Art in “Texas Vintage”.
artworks in “Texas Vintage” are a curated selection of
long-established fine art artists that includes aftermarket
originals by G. Harvey, Porfirio Salinas, W.A. Slaughter, Jose Vives-Atsara, Joe Peacock, Robert Wood, Billy Saathoff, Santa Duran, Helen Hunter, and many Texas favorites.
The genre of Texas
Vintage Art has recently been the topic of discussion in regional
and national auction houses, among private collectors, and fine
art appraisers. With a few highly successful and much anticipated
aftermarket auctions in both Texas and New Mexico, a small cohort
of Texas artists have seen an increase in the demand of works
dating from the mid 1950’s to the 1990’s.
“Texas Vintage”, J.R Mooney Galleries of Fine Art is proud to
curate a powerful selection of artworks that give us a glimpse of
the dynamic force of Texas Vintage Art. Pulling from
multiple sources and collections, the gallery will showcase
masterpieces, unique acquisitions, and rare fine art in this ‘not to be missed’ exhibition of
Vintage Texas Art.
"This is a one night only
coveted troves from regional,
national and international acclaimed
Texas artists.... An event
not to be missed!!!!!"
G. (Gerald) Harvey, one of the most regionally
recognized artists of western nostalgia, recently reached a new
aftermarket auction record in April 2015 at $400,000.00. With an
average ceiling of $150,000 - $200,00.00 for his signature
western paintings, “TX” will be showcasing his earlier
landscape paintings from circa 1950’s as well as select paintings
from his traditional cowboy/ranch hand/West Texas Oil varieties.
Accompanying this selection of highly collectable, midcentury
work will be “ready-to-hang” framed reproductions on canvas and
paper from Somerset Publishing; all framed by J.R. Mooney
Jose Vives-Atsara, one of San Antonio’s most
celebrated Spanish artists will be represented with a body of
still life paintings, landscape, and floral paintings; bringing
to light artwork from the archived collection of the gallery and
exhibit portions of the after-market collection that have not
been seen in over 20 years.
Porfirio Salinas, an Early Texas landscape painter who gained
international recognition for his stylistic depictions of the
Texas Hill Country and in particular the bluebonnets, was a
favorite painter of President Lyndon Johnson who hung five of
Salinas’s bluebonnet paintings in the White House - three in the
bedrooms and two for the study. “TX” will include multiple
selections of Salinas’s Texas Hill Country landscapes spanning
several seasons and eras.
Other selections of Texas Hill Country aesthetic, Western
selections, Bronze reliefs and sculptures, bluebonnet depictions
will include artworks by W.A. Slaughter, Billy Saathoff, Santa
Duran, Helen Hunter, and many other Texas favorites.
d'Oeuvres and wine selections from the Boerne Wine Company will
