Thank you for your interest in CASETA and early Texas art.  This summer CASETA is celebrating the success of the 8th Annual Texas Art Fair and Symposium on Early Texas Art, held April 16-18 in Houston.  Thank you again to the CASETA members and friends who contributed to the success of this event!  The Symposium Committee is already hard at work planning next year's conference- be sure to check below for your opportunity to contribute to the 2011 Symposium program. 

As the weather heats up in Texas, many of you will hit the road in search of cooler temperatures.  Take some time in between your travels to visit the fantastic Texas art exhibitions on view in the coming months.  Check the calendar below to learn about early Texas art shows and events happening around the Lone Star State.  Have a fantastic summer!

Best wishes,
Courtney DiSabato
