The Helen Richter Watson Art Gallery is a light-filled aerie that embraces the empathic spectrum of her profound influence as both artist and teacher. The Gallery replicates Watson’s welcoming Houston Street studio, which openly mixed works of art within her home setting to create a gathering space where an artist celebrated, lived and worked her art daily. In addition to the artist’s works, visitors will find an impressive array of works by artists who were Watson’s colleagues, friends or artists whose works she collected.
The Gallery is a gift of legacy and love made possible by the Dolly Richter Watson Foundation.
Project architects were Frank Architects, Inc. of Laredo and Pfluger Associates of San Antonio. Construction was by Alpha Building Construction of San Antonio. Gallery consultant was Ethel Shipton.
