Opening Reception

The opening reception for the All Men’s Art Show was held on Saturday, October 29, at Valerosa Gallery in Tyler, Texas.

Featured artists include Christopher Apodaca, Jake Arnold, David Ackerson, Dana Adams, Don Bristow, Herb Bryant, Doug Carter, John Dietz, Gaylon Dingler, Don Edmonds, Roy Hall, Nicholas Harp, James Hayes, Marvin Mayer, Brian Stone, Tom Stoval, Dan Wells and Billy Joe Tarrant.

Pictured is Herb Bryant, an award winning artist in New Mexico and Texas, and artist of the year for KENW public TV in 2000. Herb teaches oil painting and watercolor classes at the west campus of Tyler Junior College, and he has judged a number of art shows in Texas, New Mexico and in Arkansas.

Like Mr. Bryant, many of the featured artists in the All Men’s Art Show are well-known Southwestern artists. But some are up-and-coming artists, such as potter Nicholas Harp, an art student at UT Tyler. The 4 works on display by Mr. Harp are, by themselves, worth the trip to Valerosa Gallery to see. But I can say the same for each and every one of the featured artists at this exhibit.

The exhibit will be open at Valerosa Gallery through Saturday, November 12. Hours are Monday-Friday, 10AM-5PM and Saturday 10AM-4PM. Visit valerosadesigns.com for more information.
