Miss Texas 1956 Barbara Therrell Murry

Born in Beaumont, Miss Houston Barbara Therrell Murry, a pop vocalist, won the state title. She also had training in piano and dance and was a sophomore at Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri.
She opened the Cusack Gallery in Houston in 1971 to show the work of artists like Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold and Daniel Buren. She and her four children lived above and behind the gallery. “You could smell spaghetti when you came to see the art,” she said.
The Cusack Gallery was ahead of its time. “Nearly every show was an installation, made for my gallery and never seen anywhere else,” she said. Barbara closed the gallery in 1976 and lived, at times, in Rio de Janeiro and Santa Fe. While her children were growing to adulthood, she watched the artists she had championed become international stars. That may explain her confidence about design. “I've always trusted my taste,” she said.
She returned to Houston in 2002 to be near her family, which now includes seven grandchildren (the oldest graduating from SMU this year). There, she established herself as an interior designer. Always a visionary, her work has been featured in national publications, including Metropolitan Home, Dwell and The New York Times. Her website is www.pulpoetry.com.
In 2003, she learned of a small house in Marfa (some say a former dance hall), built about 100 years ago, that was about to come on the market. While she still lives in Houston, she decided to buy it to use as a weekend retreat. “Sometimes, when you least expect it, you get the fever,” she said of the desire to buy and renovate a forlorn dwelling. “But when you renovate,” she said, “it’s like a train with no brakes. Once it gets going, there’s nothing there to stop it.”
