It is with regret that we announce the 2020 Symposium and Texas Art Fair 
scheduled to be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton - 
Greenway Plaza in Houston, TX 
on April 24-26, 2020 has been cancelled. 

We made this difficult decision due to the spreading threat of the 
COVID-19 virus and concern for the health and well-being of 
all who might attend the symposium. Click Here to Read More


The annual CASETA Symposium and Texas State Fair is our signature event for people both from around the state and beyond.  It helps drive membership and is the major source of funds for our other programming.  CASETA has held these symposia for sixteen years beginning in 2003 bringing together leading collectors, scholars, art dealers, museum professionals and educators to share new research, information and discoveries in the field.  We encourage university art educators, high school art educators, and upper level college and graduate level students to the event in order to encourage new work in the field. Academic and museum professionals attending this annual meeting, find that new collaborations are formed and old ones are nourished. The Eighteenth Annual CASETA Symposium and Texas Art Fair should be supported and attended by everyone interested in the preservation of Texas visual art heritage.  We hope that includes you!
