Early West Texas: Waypoint and Home
July 1 – November 3, 2018
Dede Rogers Gallery, El Paso Museum of Art

Historically a point of passage, West Texas has fostered a community composed of artists both passing through and making the El Paso region their permanent home. Painters, printmakers, and draftsmen alike devoted themselves to capturing the border region’s unique landscape and culture. With EPMA’s rich collection of early Texas art alongside works from local collectors, this exhibition examines the border as waypoint and home. Through rarely exhibited paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs, Early West Texas begins with an overarching view of the region’s landscape, continually narrowing its focus to scenes of daily life and portraits of those who, at one point or another, have called El Paso home.

Support for this exhibition is provided by Travis and Annabelle Johnson, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation.
