Description

Tracing the Past: Scott and Stuart Gentling’s Birds of Texas is the second of two exhibitions dedicated to the Gentling brothers’ watercolors of birds that were featured in their 1986 portfolio of prints, Of Birds and Texas.

Consisting of 21 original watercolors and drawings by the Gentlings, as well a comparative selection of books and works on paper by prominent artist-naturalists from the 19th and 20th centuries, this exhibition explores how the brothers looked to historical imagery by prior generations of artists to create their own works of Texas birds.

Free admission.
