The Texas Art Collectors Organization

I recently spoke to a meeting of the Texas Art Collectors Organization about the life and career of Allie Tennant. Members of this group are all avid collectors and afficiados of early Texas art. Some of them have impressive personal collections that contain works by many noted artists from the southwestern region. I also the chance to sign a number of books. It was a pleasure to talk before this fine group. Some of the members who attended my presentation kindly posed with me during the event.
