New Acquisitions is the first public exhibition of nearly 40 new additions to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts’ collection, including an important gift of works on paper by Otis Dozier and Velma Davis Dozier from Denni Davis Washburn.

Ranging from early Texas prints and drawings to contemporary painting and sculpture, the gifts featured in this exhibition have enriched and broadened the museum’s collections of Texas art and ceramic art, two of SAMFA’s focus areas of collecting.

The exhibition also includes works by Xavier Gonzalez (museum purchase with funds from Anne Shahan), Roger Allen and Akio Takamori (gifts of Pam Bladine in memory of Roger Allen), Jack Earl (a gift of John Williams), and Lee Albert Hill, Jesús Toro Martinez, Connie Connally, Tom Coleman and Frank Boyden (gifts of the artists).

New Acquisitions opens to the public on July 4 during regular museum hours and will remain on exhibition through September 29, 2024.

The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. The museum is supported by generous contributions from both individuals and businesses.
