2017 TEXAS ARTIST OF THE YEAR: TRENTON DOYLE HANCOCK

2017 TEXAS PATRON OF THE YEAR: LYNN GOODE


Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to announce Katharine Bowdoin Barthelme and Calia Alvarado Pettigrew as the 2017 Co-Chairs for Art League Houston’s Annual Gala: "Myth & Symbol" honoring Trenton Doyle Hancock as the 2017 Texas Artist of the Year and Lynn Goode as the 2017 Texas Patron of the Year. These awards are long standing traditions of Art League Houston. It is an important component of our mission to honor those who make such a compelling difference in our community and throughout the state of Texas through their contribution to the arts.

Please join ALH for this year’s Gala, featuring a cocktail hour and delicious sit down dinner, award ceremony, silent auction, DJ and dancing.  Your presence and support will help ALH secure nearly one third of its operating budget for 2017-2018, and will allow the organization to continue offering high-quality visual arts programming and unique education initiatives including Healing Art and ArtBound!. Funds raised from our annual Gala are crucial in supporting ALH’s important ongoing exhibitions of local, national, and international artists. 

We expect a sellout Gala!  Please do not miss this opportunity to pay tribute to Trenton Doyle Hancock and Lynn Goode. Each has significantly advanced the visual arts in Texas, and the evening will be an unforgettable party celebrating their contributions while raising funds for Art League Houston. 

As the 2017 Texas Artist of the Year, Art League Houston will present "TEXAS: 1997-2017" by Trenton Doyle Hancock, an exhibition of more than fifty works by the artist that span over two decades of his prolific career. Drawn from the years that Hancock has lived and worked in Texas, and selected by the artist himself, the works will survey one of the most diverse, surreal and imaginative artistic practices of our time. The exhibition opens Friday, September 8, 2017 with a reception from 6 to 9 PM, and will remain on view through November 4, 2017.
