"Bold Lines: Works By Joseph Glasco"


Nov 24, 2019 to Feb 16, 2020

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


The Tyler Museum of Art celebrates the career of an influential abstract expressionist with strong ties to the Tyler community in its next major exhibition, Bold Lines: Works by Joseph Glasco, in the Museum’s Bell Gallery.

Members and special guests are invited for a first look at the exhibition during the Preview Reception from 5:30-7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Museum on the Tyler Junior College main campus. 

Organized by the TMA and curated by Caleb Bell, Bold Lines surveys the vast body of work by Glasco (1925-1996), an artist born in Oklahoma but raised in Tyler. His artistic eye developed early as he grew up in East Texas, moving on to study art at the University of Texas at Austin before being drafted for military service in World War II.

Bold Lines offers a glimpse at how Glasco’s work evolved over the years from stylized representational forms to heavily patterned, geometric approaches to figures and eventually into the abstract collage painting and sculpture from his final years in Galveston, for which he is best known. The exhibition features four of Glasco’s works held in the TMA’s Permanent Collection in addition to pieces on loan from collections throughout Texas as well as the artist’s estate.


$5 for adults, $3 for seniors, students and children under 12 are free
