A Century of Fine Art in the Big Bend: SRSU Faculty & Students 1920-2020
April 20-May 28

Artwork from the Sul Ross State University Art Department over the last century, starting with the teachers and students of Sul Ross Normal established in 1920 to that of the current faculty. Included in the show is work from the Summer Art Colony (1932-1950) where Texas regional artists including Julius Woeltz, Xavier Gonzalez, Otis Dozier, William Lester and Harry Anthony DeYoung, taught at Sul Ross during the summer sessions and used the dramatic local landscape to challenge themselves and their students.
