Free Art Talk! Featuring Texas artist Bill Haveron

Art Talk: Free and open to the public!

Artist Bill Haveron will discuss his retrospective exhibition, Baptism by Fire on Saturday March 24th.
The MAC is pleased to announce a retrospective exhibition of Bill Haveron’s artistic
career in Texas. Haveron, a true Texas original, works out of his studio in Bryan, Texas
where he was born and raised. Haveron’s artwork is influenced by his experiences as a
young child growing up in rural Texas. Undertones of folk and popular culture create a
visual language that conveys vignettes of good and evil, imaginary worlds and various
mythological interpretations. Masterfully rendered, these works immediately invite the
viewer to decipher reality from fiction. The retrospective exhibition at The MAC is in
conjunction with Haveron’s solo exhibition of new works, Optic Nerve at Kirk Hopper
Fine Art, opening February 18, 2012. For information regarding Optic Nerve please
contact Kirk Hopper Fine Art.
Bill Haveron has a long history of exhibiting in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Solo
exhibitions include Gerald Peters in Dallas, Texas and the Contemporary Art Center of
Fort Worth in Fort Worth, Texas. Group exhibitions include the Museum of San
Francisco in San Francisco, California and the Meadows Museum of Art in Dallas,
Texas. Haveron has work in the permanent collections of museums such as the Modern
Art Museum of Fort Worth, El Paso Museum of Art, the Modern Art Museum of Austin
and the de Young Art Museum in San Francisco, California. Bill Haveron is represented
by Kirk Hopper Fine Art in Dallas, Texas.
