If the show’s a hit, extend the run.
The leaders of the Neill-Cochran House Museum have learned that old Broadway lesson.
“Through Her Eyes,” a unexpectedly popular exhibit of works by 19th-century American painter Anna Stanley, has been extended through Feb. 3.
You might remember our story about Stanley’s granddaughter, Marni Roberson, who, with her sister, spent decades exhuming the life of the Impressionist artist, who left behind beautiful paintings, yet whose story needed a good deal of research, still ongoing.

“Anna Stanley’s work speaks to the changing opportunities for women artists in the latter part of the 19th century, but the collection also shows a personal progression from student to professional artist,” says Rowena Dasch, executive director of the museum. “Moreover, the exhibit is a unique opportunity to view Impressionist work in Austin.”
Well, the show has ushered in “unprecedented attendance and attention” to the house museum located in the West Campus area at 2310 San Gabriel St.
The show is free with museum admission.
