Description

"The mission of the Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art is to promote the preservation, study and appreciation of Texas visual arts and its history." The Mission's values, as defined by CASETA are as follows: "Early Texas Art": art produced by artists who were born in and/or lived and worked in Texas during the time period beginning with Colonization (1820) until 40 years prior to the present date. "Promote": creating serious interest, as well as enjoyment and appreciation of Early Texas Art among scholars, collectors, museums and the general public through the funding of programs, research, publications and through assistance in placing archives and artwork with public institutions whose missions are complementary to CASETA's goals. "Study": learning at all levels in order to discover new knowledge and interpretation of Early Texas Art. "Appreciation": recognizing that Early Texas Art is significant or important. "Preservation": recognizing the urgent need to save and conserve the art heritage of Texas in such a way that it is available to future generations for their enjoyment and study and taking proactive steps through advocacy to ensure that this occurs. "Texas Visual Arts": a creative work by an early Texas artist including, but not limited to, painting, drawing, printmaking, watercolor and sculpture. "Texas History": a continuous inquiry into our relationship with the past.
