Light up your home with a beautiful new piece of art from Southwest Gallery! Check out their new arrivals in store, from Western sculpture to W.A. Slaughter’s renowned Texas landscapes.
If you love gorgeous hills and bluebonnet fields, then you will love Slaughter’s paintings. He grew up in Texas among the beauty of Hill Country near San Antonio, and returned to Dallas in 1964, where he began exhibiting his paintings. According to his artist’s statement, “A painting must speak for itself to the viewer and have artistic value, no matter who the painter. I make no conscious attempt to make a statement to society but feel that the message in my paintings lies in the beauty of adorned nature.”
You can also see examples of Western sculpture, like Mark James’s “Hands That Once Held Six Guns,”featuring an old cowboy caressing a newborn baby. James is a Western outdoorsman, who has spent the best part of his life living and working in the high country of the Rocky Mountains. His passion for the wilderness and all it has to teach him is now expertly expressed in his art. According to his bio, “A naturalist, Mark continues to spend much of each fall alone in the wilderness of Wyoming fine tuning his senses to the sights, scents and sounds of the mountains, sharing the experience with the creatures that live there, while renewing his inspiration to create outdoor themes that tell the story of the heritage of the American West.”
Also on display throughout the summer are Nic Noblique’s bold, strong and colorful sculptures. If you can’t make it in, you can also explore Noblique’s work virtually.
Southwest Gallery is open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Come in to buy your next piece of art or simply enjoy the beauty created by these talented artists.
