HONOREE MORRIS MATSON

This year’s show honors Morris Matson, an enthusiastic collector of art, especially by Fort Worth artists. Matson has over 200 paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture on display in his home.

More importantly, Morris is a shameless promoter of others collecting art, and is active in COFWA (Collectors of Fort Worth Art); TACO (Texas Art Collectors Organization); and CASETA (Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art), a group that recently honored Morris with a lifetime achievement award.

If you don’t know Morris and would like to meet him, you’re likely to find him at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art where he is docent emeritus, a Circle Member, and serves on the Ambassador Council. He has also held positions of importance with the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation, Casa Mañana, United Way, and the Cultural District Committee.
