Carmen Champion presents: The Artist as Citizen: Frank Freed's Lessons on the Importance of Social Commentary Introduced by Randy Tibbits
by HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group on Sunday, June 13, 2021

Carmen Champion says: "Houston based artist Frank Freed took to painting late in life executing mostly representational works of art documenting his life experiences. Although the diversity of subject matter and range of execution is evident, he has generally been dismissed as a "Sunday painter." This presentation will attempt to defy that suggestion by arguing the importance of Freed's work in revealing critical social tensions and anxieties during some of the most tumultuous times in history."

Bio: Carmen Champion holds a full-time faculty position as Professor of Art History and Gallery Director at San Jacinto College Central Campus. She earned an MA in Art History from the University of Houston where her art historical focus centered on Early Texas Art and Culture. She has worked in the curatorial departments of major academic and public museums and is an Associate member of the Appraisers Association of America.

2020 CASETA Awards Ceremony

Throughout its history Caseta the Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art has given awards and special recognition to individuals and organizations that have provided distinctive services or products or personal commitment that have advanced our understanding of early Texas art. This year will not be an exception and even though we cannot do this in person as we usually do at our annual symposium, tonight we have an enjoyable presentation to announce who the award winners are and to hear from each of them directly.
