Bill Haveron

Baptism by Fire

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.
