I am excited to be included in this show at Avis Frank Gallery in Houston.
“In art history, regionalism has been understood as a relatively deliberate effort, by regional producers, to develop the characteristics of distinctively local artistic interests……. However, many artistic regions were probably denoted as such only with hindsight by a society or its historians.”
–Whitney Davis (Oxford University Press)
Any issues of geographical identity are more concerning to those that sell, criticize and categorize art than to the artist themselves. Artists do not declare themselves as “New York artists” or “Texas artists” as those phrases are limiting, but the media and critics will happily use them…. galleries too.
So Avis Frank is proud to present ten artists
Please support good local art
wherever it comes from.
