Beloved Rural Art Gallery Celebrates 10 Years With a Special Exhibition — Red & White Gallery Unveils a Powerful Lineup

Big Time Art in a Small Town

BY // 01.07.23

Talk about a white cube art space in the country. The gallery of community-minded couple Joan and Jerry Herring — in the tiny but mighty hamlet of Fayetteville, Texas — is hitting the decade marker this January, which will be appropriately celebrated with an exhibition of the same name: “10: The Red & White Gallery’s Tenth Anniversary Exhibit.”

The exhibit opens this Saturday, January 7 and shows through March 4.

Sited in the oldest commercial building in Fayette County, the unique Red & White Gallery, Fayetteville, Texas, marks its 10th anniversary on Saturday, January 7, 2023.

Housed in a jaunty red-and-white storefront that lines Fayetteville’s charming small town’s square, Red & White Gallery’s contemporary art space is steeped in history. The gallery’s distinctive structure, circa 1835 to 1850, is reportedly the oldest commercial building in Fayette County. It was once the town grocer, with one room devoted to the Dawn Theater, now brought back to life with a series of popular movie nights hosted by the Herrings.

Then there’s their stable of artists, rare in a town of 246 folks. Red & White’s illustrious lineup reflects the gallery’s local-to-national vision.

For example, Richard Avedon’s assistant during photographing In the American West, documentary great Laura Wilson, shows at Red & White, one of her only two United States dealers. Wilson is among the talents featured in “10.”

William Anzalone's "Fields #2," 2022, at Red & White Gallery. The artist, an American master of landscape, has called Round Top home for decades.

Also watch for works by one of Texas’ modern masters of landscape, retired University of Houston professor William Anzalone, whose career to date extends for more than half a century, including many decades recording the fields and farms of Round Top and its environs.

Crafts, especially creations in clay, are also highlighted in this anniversary celebration, most notably the wry and witty works of Fayetteville resident ceramics maestro Pat Johnson that slyly comment on contemporary topics and Houston-based Susan Budge’s totemic, talismanic creations.

Also recommended in this milestone show are color photography/image-maker Arthur Meyerson; works by the late Texas abstract painter Charles Schorre; Mary Quiros’ buoyant nature-infused canvases; and practitioner of the rare 19th century art of scratchboard painting Sally Maxwell, recognized for her sensitive depictions of animals.

“10: The Red & White Gallery’s Tenth Anniversary Exhibit” opens this Saturday, January 7 from 4 to 7 pm and will be on view through Saturday March 4. Red & White Gallery is located at 102 W.
