Launched in 2015 to celebrate and steward art within our community, the Overland Art Program seeks to promote both established and emerging artists, inspire the design process, and encourage creative thinking. As part of this program, Overland hosts a series of rotating art exhibits throughout the year.

Ruiz-Healy Art was incorporated in 2004, and after working for several years strictly by appointment, the gallery opened their public space in September 2013 at their current location, 210-A East Olmos Drive.

The Gallery deals in Post-War and contemporary works of art: painting, sculpture, photography and works on paper. Ruiz-Healy art represents an international roster of artists and places emphasis on a Latin American, borderland, and Texas discourse. In addition, we are the exclusive representatives of the Estate of Chuck Ramirez.

Ruiz-Healy Art is a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) demonstrating a high level of expertise in works on paper. We are one of only three members in the state of Texas.

The gallery has an active Art Fair participation and has published many catalogues.

Overland has partnered with Ruiz-Healy Art to bring the works of three brilliant and diverse artists—Cecilia Biagini and Leigh Anne Lester and Jesse Amado— to our walls. We are excited to see our office take on a new personality as these works bring an uncanny depth to our studio environment.

The works evoke rhythm, conflict and value. While the variety of mediums cultivates a unique experience with proximity, the exhibit feels inherently holistic. The exploration and articulation of geometry is a common thread uniting the work, while the unique voice of each artist transcends the physical forms.

Geometry plays a major role in Cecilia Biagini’s work. With careful consideration of space and suggested movement, her pieces feel structured yet playful.

Leigh Anne Lester’s layering of film with colored cells and detailed, sometimes distorted, botanic material stimulates the complexity of a whole and nods to the struggle of genetic modification.

The conceptually based work of Jesse Amado reflects the investments of society and the trends of our modern culture.

Hosting a series of rotating exhibits, the Overland Art Program seeks to promote both established and emerging artists, inspire the design process, and encourage creative thinking. Ruiz-Healy Art champions the highest standards of quality, specializing in contemporary and modern art with a focus on representing the work of both Latin American and Texas-based artists. We are honored to have this opportunity to be associated with the gallery and look forward to the upcoming events in support of these artists.
