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”.
The 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.
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!!!!!"
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 Galleries.
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.
**** Hors d'Oeuvres and wine selections from the Boerne Wine Company will be provided for attending gallery patrons.
