Few cities have more art or better art than we now have in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. From the second largest contemporary art museum in the U.S. to the world class Nasher Sculpture Center - there is lots going on!

The Dallas / Fort Worth area (called the Metroplex) also has anactive group of working artists, art centers, and many great privategalleries. In addition to our six major art museums, we have severalsmaller art museums that are very special. This non-commercial web sitelists them all with links and a few comments.

We also feature the art museums in Texas and the Southwest. Texas is truly State of the Arts! And Oklahoma is OK too!

We have some great art in Big D and Cowtown! Y'all come and see it!

Dallas / Fort Worth and Texas Art News

Continental Caper - EASL Art Heist - Was held October 3rd (2015) at 129 Leslie in the Dallas Design District. It was a big hit! We grossed $35,000, had great art, food, drink and people. Thank you for your support!

Vermmer at the DMA - The great 17th-century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer created fewer than forty paintings during his lifetime, and Young Woman Seated at a Virginal from 167072 is one of his last. A rare opportunity to view the work from a private collection.

Modern of Fort Worth - The permant collection is up again but much is rehung and there are some new things out. There is a wonderful Motherwell show on the 2nd floor.

Thomas Hart Benton - Opened February 6, 2016 at the Amon Carter in Fort Worth. The show is titled American epics, Benton and Hollywood. The work on paper is especially good.
