Weeks Two and Three will focus on the artists and their art. The gallery holds work by many prominent early Texas artists from Jose Arpa to Lu Ann Barrow. Artists whose work you may view and discuss include, but are not limited to, Porfirio Salinas, Pedro Lazcano, A.D. Greer, Dawson Dawson-Watson, Santa Duran, Robert Wood, Hale Bolton, Rolla Taylor, Frank Reaugh, Robert Jenkins Onderdonk, and Julian Onderdonk. Week Four will examine some of the do's and don'ts of collecting and investing in early Texas art and should be a lively discussion! Presented by Mr. Charles Morin. Charles (Charlie), owner of Charles Morin Fine Art located in San Antonio, has been in the art and antique business since he was 14 years old when he began buying and selling vintage automobiles. Through the years his interests have evolved and now primarily concentrate on vintage Texas paintings by such artists as Porfirio Salinas, Exa Wall, Santa Duran, and A.D. Greer to name a few. (However, his inventory does include vintage Texas utilitarian pottery, vintage Texas art pottery and handmade Texas furniture.) Charlie believes that many of these artists have been somewhat overlooked and underrated by the collecting community and one of his biggest thrills is finding a fabulous painting by an obscure Texas Artist.
