Texas Women Artists: Selections from Bywaters Special Collections

August 21, 2017- August 5, 2018
Hamon Arts Library Second Floor

The metalwork, photographs, prints, and sculpture selected for this exhibition are from the holdings of Bywaters Special Collections, located in the Jake and Nancy Hamon Arts Library. Each woman represented in the exhibition had early art training, most of it professional, yet career paths diverged as they became curators, educators, gallery directors, metalsmiths, printmakers, and sculptors. The first artist represented is Louise Heuser Wueste (Wüste), a “pioneer” since she is the first known professionally-trained woman artist to arrive in Texas in the mid-nineteenth century. Many other women artists followed in her footsteps, and their legacy is still felt today in works of art they created and organizations they established.

In view of the fragile nature of the works of art shown in this exhibition, reproductions of the originals are exhibited. Photographs not from Bywaters Special Collections are noted in credit information.
