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.
In “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 affair
featuring coveted troves from
regional, national and international
acclaimed Texas artists....
An event not to be missed!!!!!"
