Deep in the Art of Texas

Deep in the Art of Texas is the theme for the July TVAA Exhibition. Maybe the landscape of Texas, an old honky-tonk located in a small Texas town, Texas longhorns, the State Fair of Texas, the people of Texas, a rodeo scene, the hustle and bustle of Dallas, or the Texas architecture. Show Chair, Kay Wyne.

Raymond D. Nasher

RAYMOND D. NASHER
Honorary Life Member  -  1998

Raymond D. Nasher, prominent real estate developer and banker, was Chairman of The Nasher Foundation and Chairman of Comerica Bank-Texas.  He was also a renowned world leader in the arts.  He was one of this country’s leading collectors of modern and contemporary sculpture.  He also was one of the first real estate developers in the United States to place art, primarily sculpture, in commercial retail complexes.  He did this believing that art nurtures intellectual and aesthetic curiosity and enhances the overall experience of every environment.

Mr. Nasher and his wife, Patsy, began collecting art early fifty years ago.  Over time the collection evolved into one of the most extensive and important collections of modern sculpture in private hands.  In 1965, when Mr. Nasher opened his first retail shopping center in Dallas, Northpark Center, he made a commitment to installing art throughout the Center.  To do this, he designed a structure inside and out that met the needs of retailers and had the space necessary to display large sculptures by artists such as Jonathan Borofsky, Mark di Suvero, Henry Moore, Beverly  Pepper, and George Segal.  The design also included special interior water features, open spaces, as well as exterior landscape, all of which complement the art.

NorthPark Center and the nearby NorthPark National Bank (now Comerica Bank) – another project of The Nasher Company – both won architectural and design awards, and have become models for other developers throughout the world.  Recently expanded, making it the biggest mall in the Dallas area, NorthPark Center generates annual sales volumes that make it one of the top shopping centers in the country.

Mr. Nasher played a leading role in the development and growth of many of the major arts organizations in Dallas.  He contributed to increased business support of the arts in Dallas by establishing the Dallas Business Committee for the Arts.  He was a member of the national Business Committee for the Arts, and a board member of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Opera, the Dallas Symphony, the Dallas Theater Center, Ballet Dallas, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  He was appointed to serve on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.  He served on the Texas Commission on the Arts and was the Ambassador of Cultural Affairs for the City of Dallas.  The Nasher Company has received Business in the Arts Awards in recognition of its outstanding commitment to business arts alliances.

In 2003, Mr. Nasher opened the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, which houses pieces from his collection of more than 300 works.  Personally financed by Mr. Nasher, the highly acclaimed Center, occupying a 2.5 acre site in Dallas’s downtown Arts District, consists of a 55,000 square-foot building designed by architect Renzo Piano and a 1.5 acre garden designed by landscape architect Peter Walker.

Mr. Nasher also established a Sculpture Garden in his name at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, which presents a rotating selection of sculptures from the Nasher collection.  In addition, he contributed $7.5 million to the development of the Nasher Museum of Art, which opened in October of 2005 at Duke University, where he graduated with a B.A. in 1943.  The Nasher Foundation contributed an additional $2.5 million to the Nasher Museum at Duke, which exhibits a large selection of modern and contemporary from the Nasher collection.

Mr. Nasher was a visionary with a deep understanding of what constitutes human and nurturing communities, contributing his time and resources in civic and cultural affairs to improve the human environment.

John Voelker

JOHN VOELKER
Honorary Life Member – 2009

John Voelker, a native of Ohio, received his education in fine and commercial art at the Columbus College of Art and Design.  After coming to Dallas, he worked for The Drawing Board, the Bloom Agency, WFAA-TV, Computer Language Research, and for many years as Art Coordinator for Coronet Packaging.  Activities with drawing and painting began with competitions -  local, regional, and national -  resulting in numerous awards and citations.  John currently works in ink and colored pencil on paper using sharp geometric designs in symmetrical and asymmetrical patterns.

In 2010 John had a number of pieces accepted in the summer exhibition at the MADI Geometric Museum in Dallas, after which one piece was selected for their permanent collection. In 1993 he was one of the nominees for the Joseph V. Canzani Award for Alumni Excellence (CCAD), and in 2009 was presented with an Honorary Life Membership of the Texas Visual Arts Association.

John served on the Dallas Chapter of the Texas Fine Arts Association as president from 1976-1977, and on the state board of the Texas Fine Arts Association.  He has continuously been on the TVAA board since then, serving the members of the organization.

Members still talk about when he was Vice President of Membership; he sent personal hand-calligraphed letters welcoming them to the organization.  He still works behind the scenes to keep the wheels of the organization in motion.  A favorite quote of his:  “Commercial art is fine art when it’s good, and fine art is commercial art when it sells.”
