Give to Lawndale's Annual Fund

Dear Lawndale friends,
I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I am at the outpouring of affection for Lawndale Art Center I have felt in the past few months and I am dearly appreciative of those who have taken the time to stop and spread the "Lawndale love."

I have recently been troubled with the challenge of how to turn this wonderful gift of enthusiasm into financial support for the organization. I have hesitated earnestly asking for support because I do not want to take away from the genuine friendship for Lawndale that I have received from the community. But the simple truth is, as much as Lawndale provides opportunities for Houston area artists and those taking part in the cultural community, Lawndale also needs the support from that very same community.

So like many of my fellow organizations, I am writing to let you know that every dollar counts. Your contributions make it possible for Lawndale to continue to present quality programming free to everyone. We would so appreciate your donating to Lawndale Art Center at this time when you consider your annual giving contributions.

With all good wishes,
Christine Jelson West
Executive Director

This lively, lavishly illustrated volume, from PaperCity Visual Arts Editor and long-time Lawndale friend, Catherine Anspon, offers a fresh take on the mid-career players (plus a few up-and-comers) upon the rich canvas of Texas's art scene. Sixty-two artists are surveyed via insider studio tours, portraits, and examples of their work, accompanied by concise essays that elucidate each talent's intent, inspiration, and working methods. Published in a collectible, limited edition of 3,000 hand-numbered copies, this memorable survey is presented in an oversized format, producing an art tome as big as Texas.
