Holly Johnson Gallery presents It's Official: Texas State Artists 2015 & 2016 Opening Reception
Holly Johnson Gallery presents the opening of It's Official, an exhibition celebrating the recent appointments of four contemporary artists as "Texas State Artists 2015 & 2016." These internationally acclaimed artists include Dornith Doherty, Dario Robleto, Margo Sawyer, and Vincent Valdez.
The announcement last spring came from the Texas Commission on the Arts and the Texas State Legislature. Appointments were made to the positions of State Artists - Doherty, Robleto, Sawyer, and Valdez; State Musicians - Jimmie Vaughan and Joe Ely; and State Poet Laureates - Carmen Tafolla and Laurie Ann Guerrero. Selected for their dedicated commitment to the arts in Texas, the appointees represent the best of Texas' diverse artistic community. This designation is the state's highest recognition for excellence in the arts.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 13.
