2023 Homes Tour Artist – Randall Cogburn

A national award-winning artist with paintings in private and public collections, oil painter Randall Kirby Cogburn is an American Impressionist painter. He is a Texas native who enjoys the landscapes, coastal scenes, urban cities, and portraits he paints.

He paints on location and lives in Austin, TX. His impressionistic paintings are inspired by what he sees on-site, recreating a scene with his brush marks, color choices, and different techniques learned through painting many paintings over the years. His start in art began from sketching on location, leading to watercolor studies and paintings, and then a more direct method of painting using oils, where he honed his painting and started showing in galleries. His paintings are seen in Galleries in Texas. Visit randallcogburn.com for more information on this year’s artist.

Unframed and a limited number of framed prints are available each day of the tour at our retail tent at 926 Winnie or at the 1892 Bishop’s Palace, 1402 Broadway.


Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day.
