The Big Show 2013 

On view through August 10  


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 $3,000 in cash awards.


The Big Show 2013 award winners selected by guest juror, Duncan MacKenzie, Artist/Critic/Writer and Co-Founder of Bad at Sports, were announced at the opening reception on July 12, 2013. Three $1,000 awards were given to: 

Perry Chandler
Avril Falgout
Bryan Forrester 


For this year's exhibition, a total of 83 works by 67 artists were selected by juror Duncan Mackenzie, Artist/Critic/Writer and Co-Founder of Bad at Sports, for the exhibition from 922 works submitted by 366 artists. Artists selected for the exhibition include:


Hannah Adams, John Adelman,  Alonso BedollaKari BreitigamAdrian Landon Brooks,  Chadwick + Spector, Raina Chamberlain, Perry Chandler, Monica Chhay,  JooYoung Choi, K.C.
