Achievement in Art: The Barrett Collection of Texas Art
January 27 through March 31, 2013
2200 Van Buren, Amarillo, TX 79109
The Barretts began collecting Texas art about a quarter of a century ago, first focusing on contemporary artists in the Dallas area and expanding to artists throughout the state. In the late 1990s, the Barretts decided to donate a large portion of their collection of Texas art to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Dallas Museum of Art, who regifted works to selected smaller art museums in Texas.
