Unconquered: Allan Houser and the Legacy of One Apache Family
Santa Fe, NM (Vocus) August 20, 2009
Allan Houser Inc. has announced the departure of CEO Kim Bourne.
Buoyed in 2005 and 2006 by a growing economy and exploding exposure of Allan Houser's artwork, Ms. Kim Bourne was hired in 2007 to coordinate the exploration of new marketing opportunities and new product development ideas.
While many facets of these efforts proved promising, the economic downturn and continuing uncertainty at present led the Board of Directors of Allan Houser Inc. to a decision to re-focus on their core business.
The Houser and Haozous family and the Board of Directors and employees of Allan Houser, Inc. thank Ms. Kim Bourne for her service and wish her much success.
Despite the recession and the widespread decline in almost every sector of the art market, Allan Houser's legacy has continued to grow, and the value of his work in both the primary and secondary market continues to increase. In the past few years, new levels have been achieved in sales of his stone and bronze sculpture, as well as his original paintings and drawings.
Institutional demand is at an all-time high with major artwork in the permanent collections of over 100 museums worldwide, and exhibitions planned through 2014. Opening this fall will be a major outdoor exhibit at the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, a retrospective at the Heard Museum, and an expanded version of "Unconquered: Allan Houser and the Legacy of One Apache Family" to be installed at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The film produced in conjunction with this exhibition has already been screened at film festivals across the United States with pending international placement.
