'Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art'

CANCELED. The San Antonio Museum of Art opens 2020 with a groundbreaking new exhibition titled "Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art." The first large-scale exhibition of its kind, the show features 85 works by female abstract artists who have lived and worked in Texas from the mid-20th century to the present. In keeping with that larger-than-life scope, the works span painting, sculpture, drawing and installation. In addition to featured artists from across Texas -- Sara Cardona, Linnea Glatt, Dorothy Hood, Terrell James, Dorothy Antoinette "Toni" LaSelle, Susie Rosmarin and Lorraine Tady, to name a few -- the show also features pieces from San Antonio's Constance Lowe and Liz Ward. "No matter the media, materials or processes each artist uses, she brings inventiveness, risk-taking and experimentation to her practice," SAMA’s Brown Foundation Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Suzanne Weaver said in a statement. "Over careers of many decades, each has challenged approaches to abstraction -- organic and gestural or inorganic and geometric -- to make work that is continually fresh."

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
