Fine Art Print Raffle benefiting Rockport Center for the Arts

Rockport is a small Texas village, sitting picturesquely among windswept oak trees, between the ecologically important Aransas and Copano bays.   It is home to a warm, welcoming, diverse group of people with a vibrant arts community.  The recent hurricane, Harvey, devastated the town.   Harvey, at its peak intensity, made landfall very close to Rockport; splintering walls, flattening and removing roofs, shattering glass, toppling trees – destroying much of the quaint little bayside village.

Rockport is very close to our hearts.  She has given us precious days of much needed rest and recreation, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.  We always visited the local arts center whenever we were in town.  It was a first class gallery space with the work of local, statewide and international artists.  Many of our friends have had work in the gallery over the years.  Sadly, the building has been badly damaged by the hurricane.  It will take considerable money and effort to get it back on its feet.  This must be done.  The Rockport Center for the Arts is important for South Texas, Texas and Art everywhere.  We, artists, must stand with our brothers and sisters to rebuild what is not just elevating and fun, but necessary.

Thank you so much for your help with bringing this wonderful organization back to life.
