The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center's annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show's conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale's original location.

Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to bring up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, to Lawndale Art Center where the work is juried on-site for a chance to be included in the show and a shot at one of three cash prizes.

Submission dates (work must be delivered to Lawndale):
June 27, 2012, 12-8 PM & June 28, 2012 10 AM - 5PM

We recently joined the Houston Fine Art Fair (HFAF) as a cultural partner, who is gathering momentum as it continues preparations for its return on September 13th. 

To build audience and connections in the art community, HFAF has developed the cultural partnership program, consisting of non-profit arts and cultural institutions throughout Texas and the Southwest. 

HFAF ARTWEEK, running from September 9th through the 16th, provides the unique opportunity for art fair attendees not only from Houston but also from out of town to become better acquainted with Houston's burgeoning art scene. During the week of the fair, various cultural institutions will offer a wide selection of events and exhibitions to make this a citywide event. 


Programs at Lawndale are supported in part by The National Endowment for the Arts, Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The City of Houston through the Houston Museum District Association, The Texas Commission on the Arts, Houston Endowment, The Brown Foundation, Inc., The Cavnar Foundation, The John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation, The John P. McGovern Foundation, The Wortham Foundation, Inc., Art Colony Association, John M. O'Quinn, Cecily E. Horton, Ann W. Harithas, Diana M.
