Co-Chair, Luck of the Draw X! Revolution!
CONTEMPORARY ART. VISUAL. PERFORMING. LITERARY.

Above image is artwork by Tierney Malone. This piece will be part of the Luck of the Draw X! Revolution! Blind Auction.
I’m a somewhat lucky girl married to a very lucky guy. So lucky is my guy, that over the years we have developed a stellar collection of art straight from the Luck of the Draw summer auction at DiverseWorks. I’m lucky to be the public relations consultant for DiverseWorks, so husband Tommy is the art scout and stalker. I work the event. He scores the art.
Here are the artful results:
Early on, somehow this beautiful Christopher French piece was left on the gallery wall when the auctioneer randomly called our number. It lives in our family room and is appreciated daily.
Both of these elegant pencil drawings, acquired in different years, balance each other on separate walls in the same room. I love them both.
Last year I went BIG. I saw this Ryan Geiger work in the Blind Auction and had to bid on it. This time I got lucky. I look at this beautiful painting every morning as I sip my coffee.
So when I look around my house I remember the crazy parties, the tense atmosphere and the joy of securing a piece of art that you were desperately hoping no one else got before you.
It is the Luck of the Draw – random, frustrating and fun.
See you at DiverseWorks on June 22, 6:30 p.m. But please leave Tommy alone – he’s got work to do – for us.
Art works from top to bottom:
To say DiverseWorks is busy would be an understatement. We are gearing up an action-packed weekend with This Is Displacement, Thank-You Bar, Blackfish and Low Lives. But before all that happens, DiverseWorks would like to take you down memory lane with some highlights from our Gala!
The 2011 Gala was themed Retail Therapy and took place in the food court of the Shops at Houston Center (That’s right a party in a mall!) on Saturday, April 2. Everyone had a great time as the bid on awesome packages, ate wonderful food, drank quenching libations and was entertained by Jane Weiner and Hope Stone’s performance of The Cooking Show and the band Thunderpants.
Just how much fun was it…check out these videos!
DW would like to say thanks to all our underwriters, supporters, vendors, patrons and volunteers who helps us have a successful and fun Gala!
And we hope to see you at our next fundraiser: Luck of the Draw X: Revolution!
Calling all artists! We want YOU to create an artwork to be exhibited on one of the Underwriter/Sponsor tables expressing the theme for this year’s gala Retail Therapy. You can do so much with a theme like this one with all the variety of shops and stores in the mall (think shop ‘til you drop). Even if sculpture isn’t your usual medium, this is your chance to really let yourself go creatively to create a fun, whimsical or zany piece of art!
The only constraint is that your piece be no wider than 10 inches. There is no constraint on height. Artists who create and donate a table piece will receive two discounted tickets to the event.
If you are interested in donating a piece, please contact Lan Norwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or (832) 867-1726.
