It’s fitting that Of Texas Rivers and Texas Art premieres at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, on the bank of the Concho River. The exhibition (February 16-April 9, 2017) features depictions of Texas river landscapes by 20 contemporary Texas artists, such as painters David Caton and Mary Baxter. Curators Andrew Sansom, director of the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, and William E. Reaves, of Reaves | Foltz Fine Art in Houston, developed the exhibit to explore riverine themes in Texas art and emphasize the importance of water conservation. The exhibition next travels to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (June 5–August 13, 2017) in Austin and the Witte Museum (September 2–November 27, 2017) in San Antonio.
