Saw a nice exhibition of Texas Regionalist artists at the Amon Carter Museum today.
In the 1930's there was a thriving new arts scene in Dallas that was credited to some young painters that included Jerry Bywaters, Otis Dozier, Alexander Hogue, and Harry Carnohan. The group became known as the Dallas Nine who along with patrons, writers, and architects formed the Dallas Artists League to discuss the latest issues in contemporary art.
