2022 Heritage Artists

Renowned southwestern artist Amado Peña returns among “Heritage Artists” at the 2021 Texas Arts & Crafts Fair. Peña, a native of Laredo, got his start at the Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair almost 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 included watercolorist Edith Maskey of Comfort and goldsmith Fred Stockbauer of Wimberley, both of whom 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; Gary Thompson of Dripping Springs; Sue Corbett, of San Antonio; LaJuana Westerfield-Surfus, of Comfort; and John Maskey of Comfort.
