Art Travel with Barbara Newey

Discover the world of art and culture with Art Wise. We specialize in crafting and managing art-centric study tours for intimate groups of travelers.

Our focus is on Central Texas and the U.S., keeping a keen eye on hidden gems.

At Art Wise, we are passionate about the power of learning and engaging conversations.

We believe that these elements, combined with the exploration of special exhibitions and historic architecture, create truly memorable experiences for our travelers.


From day trips in Texas to tours in the U.S., Art Wise provides the logistics so you can enjoy the study tours of our colleague and your guide, Art Historian, Karen Pope, PhD.

In addition to three decades of academic teaching, Karen has, since 1995 offered by popular demand, art museum day trips and art history-rich study tours through Art inSight Adventures in Art History.
