Since the gallery started in 2006 as William Reaves Fine Art at 2313 Brun Street in Houston, the exhibition program has been augmented by survey and group shows that investigate current themes in contemporary art within a historical context. Sarah Foltz joined the gallery as Director in 2013, became partner in 2014. At that time, the gallery became William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art, and relocated to 2143 Westheimer in the historic River Oaks District. William Reaves retired from the gallery in December of 2017, and Sarah Foltz assumed ownership, rebranding in January 2019 as Foltz Fine Art. She is dedicated to maintaining the core mission of the gallery.
In addition to promoting the work of represented artists, our strength is guiding and educating both the new, as well as the seasoned, collector. We actively advise and assist institutions and private individuals in the acquisition and sale of artworks. Many of our represented artists have been acquired into impressive private and institutional collections around the world, with many earning their first museum exhibitions through the gallery. The gallery has mounted numerous monographic exhibitions, as well as published scholarly catalogues, and has aided in the publication of several book projects, both on represented artists and key environmental issues affecting Texas landscape and wildlife. Critically acclaimed gallery artists and their work have been reviewed nationally and locally in publications such as Art in America, Art Houston, Paper City, Southwest Art, Texas Monthly, Art Ltd., Glasstire, The Houston Chronicle, The Houston Press, Art + Culture Texas, and Culture Map, among others.
Foltz Fine Art (formerly William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art) is dedicated to the promotion of premier Texas artists, from Early Texas Masters and Mid-Century Pioneers to Contemporary Regionalist Artists. The gallery showcases many of the region’s most accomplished and recognized talents who maintain a significant connection to the state of Texas. The gallery represents and exhibits artists working in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, and photography.
