“The Big Show” on Display at Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX

picture-26.jpgWhen I visited FotoFest in Houston, Texas earlier this year, I stopped by the Lawndale Art Center. It is a beautiful gallery space with three floors. One of the gallery spaces is huge (almost like a racquetball court), with a large picture window that lets in a lot of natural light.

Currently on display at Lawndale Art Center is “The Big Show,” their annual open-call, juried exhibition. Guest Juror Aram Moyashedi, Curator for LA><ART in Los Angeles, selected 95 works by 60 artists for this year’s exhibition. The work contains a wide range of disciplines, from photography to painting and mixed media.

On July 30 & 31, 2008, Lawndale Art Center is hosting “The Big Slideshow,” featuring short, informal presentations by Big Show artists. Presentations start at 7:00 PM each night. The address of the gallery is 4912 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002. To read more about the show, which is on display until August 9, 2008, visit this page.
