February 22 - May 23, 2020
In celebration of the museum’s 40th anniversary, The Ruby Portfolio presents highlights from the permanent collection. A selection of over 100 works of art are thematically arranged to convey the diversity, depth, and quality of the museum’s holdings.
The collection has grown from the private collections of four Albany natives, and now numbers over 2,400 works of art acquired through gift and purchase. The largest area is comprised of modern paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures by well-known American and European artists. Additionally, the collection includes works by contemporary Texas artists; regional collections of the Fort Worth Circle (1945-1955) and Taos Moderns (1945-1979); an impressive Asian Art Collection–principally ancient Chinese tomb figures; and stellar
Pre-Columbian objects. The collection reflects the vision of the founders, the generous support of local individuals and those from afar, as well as the professional standards upheld by a dedicated lineage of staff and board members.
