Three Prominent Texas Art Companies Combine to Establish Dallas Fine Art Auction

David McGary’s “Gray Hawk’s Legacy” is just one of many pieces of Texas and Western art that will be up for auction in an event hosted by three prominent Texas art companies— David Dike Fine Art, Debbie Leeuw Fine Art and Dallas Auction Gallery—in January of 2011.

A unique partnership of three prominent Texas art companies—David Dike Fine Art, Debbie Leeuw Fine Art and Dallas Auction Gallery—will result in an inaugural Dallas Fine Art Auction to be held in January of 2011.

Conceived in 2010 with a goal to provide both collectors and artists excellent service, personal attention, and scholarly knowledge about Texas and Western art, the auction will be held at Dallas Auction Gallery on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2011.

Franz Strahalm’s “Bluebonnets.”

Frank Klepper’s “Summer Moonrise.”

Natalie Erwin’s “Untitled.”

Among the important artists whose work is anticipated in the auction are Maynard Dixon, Charles Umlauf, Martin Grelle, Gordon Snidow, Gene Kloss, Walt Gonske and Xiaogang Zhu. The preview begins Jan. 17, 2011, and concludes Friday night, Jan. 28, with a cocktail reception, final preview and silent auction. On Saturday, Jan. 29, renowned artist Bill Anton will lecture and give a demonstration before the auction kicks off at 4 p.m.

Porfirio Salinas’s “Untitled.”

In addition to the impressive list of works, what distinguishes this auction is the remarkable trio behind the auction. David Dike Fine Art specializes in late 19th- and 20th-century American and European oil paintings, with an emphasis on the Texas Regionalists and Texas Landscape painters. Dike is recognized nationally as an authority of Texas Art. Highly regarded among the Southwest’s premier antiques and fine art auction house, Dallas Auction Gallery is a family-owned and operated business with an impeccable reputation worldwide. Debbie Leeuw, who carries on the legacy of Texas Art Gallery, is known for her commissions, consulting, referrals and buying of 19th- and 20th-century American and European oils, watercolors and bronzes with emphasis on Western and Impressionist works. Together, the three entities form a significant force in the art world.
