at Lawndale Art Center beginning Monday, November 15th!
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.
Priced at just under $100, this volume makes a great gift!

Volunteer Thank You!
Another round of applause for our incredible Día de los Muertos volunteer team! These amazing individuals helped us in every aspect of the multiple events Lawndale hosted over the last few weeks. From installing the retablos to serving hot chocolate during Family Day, they did it all! And we couldn't have done it without them. Thank you!
