2023 Heritage Artists

Renowned southwestern artist Amado Peña returns among “Heritage Artists” at the 2023 Texas Arts & Crafts Fair. Peña, a native of Laredo, got his start at the Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair over 50 years ago.

The special exhibit of Peña’s work will feature his art that is famous for bold color, line and composition. The exhibit at the fair will be indoors at the foundation’s Duncan-McAshan Gallery.

Other headliners include watercolorist Edith Maskey of Comfort, who exhibited at the first fair, held in 1972 on the Schreiner University campus in Kerrville. Joining them are other creative notables such as Steve Kriechbaum, of Austin;  LaJuana Westerfield-Surfus, of Comfort; and John Maskey of Comfort.  New for 2023, jewelers Dan and Linda Baker of Dallas, and painter George Boutwell of Clifton will be joining our Heritage Artist Gallery.
