Join us each month, as we explore a work of art or issue unique to the American West. 210|West holds geographical significance for the Briscoe Western Art Museum – it refers to our address, 210 West Market, and the area code of San Antonio.
Gallery Talks are included with museum admission and start at 1 pm CST.
Upcoming Gallery Talks:
Join the Briscoe for in-gallery chats featuring selected works from The Sons of Charlie Russell. Using the exhibition gallery guide, Curator of Art Emily Wilson will provide an overview of the tools and strategies used to evaluate narrative art. Guests will leave with a deeper appreciation of the artistic strategy and choices made by the artists.
August 12 – August’s gallery talk will focus on how artists use different techniques to draw you into their art. How artists express humor, friendship and the joys of cowboy living in their paintings, exploring both subject matter and aesthetic awareness.
Including works from 17 public and private collections, “The Sons of Charlie Russell” features 70 works of art showcasing the forefathers of Western art and how their great works provide foundations, traditions and ideals for today’s contemporary artists. Curated by Wilson and premiering at the Briscoe, the exhibition is the first and only time these works will be viewed together. Gallery talks are included in museum general admission. “The Sons of Charlie Russell” is on view through Sept. 5.
