'nting and Sculpture

STATE FAIR OF TEXAS MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS ms

EXHIBITION CALENDAR October 4 through October 26 , San Antonio of Houston

Dallas Museum of Art Libr,arY.


FOREWORD This exhibition is a new and distinctive state-wide competitIOn for Texas painters and sculptors. At the same time it is also a continuation of the important Texas annual exhibits which, for the past thirteen years, have been the successful joint efforts of the Museum of Fine Arts of Houston, the Witte Memorial Museum (in cooperation with the San Antonio Art League), and the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts. These museums will continue to provide .p rizes from local sources and to show all or part of the exhibit. Sponsorship of the initial showing of the exhibit this year at the Dallas Museum by the State Fair of Texas has made possible a much larger number of prizes, the use of a jury of national importance, and has insured a greatly increased public interest and attendance. This exhibition was assembled for judging by the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts. A total of 741 works by 44 1 Texas artists was submitted from all parts of the state and 126 by 110 artists (112 paintings and 14 pieces of sculpture) were selected for showing by the distinguished jury after two full days of careful deliberation. These members of the jury deserve special thanks for their thoughtful efforts as well as for leaving their own duties at the beginning of a busy season to come to "far-off" Texas and subject themselves to the dubious glories of jury service. The success of this exhibit has also been aided greatly by the generous prize list made possible by industrial agencies, individuals, and museums throughout the state as well as the State Fair itself with the top prize of $1,000. Finally, let most praise go where it belongs most - to the artists who are constantly growing in artistic stature and who annually bring distinction to Texas art by their diligence and creative activity.
