We are very honored to work with formidable DiverseWorks to present the third exhibition of Artadia Houston awardees. It’s a great pleasure to work with the entire fabulous DiverseWorks team and we think the show $TIMULUS is really terrific and note worthy for the great breadth of the work in the show, and the range of styles and perspectives shared by the artists on view.

It’s been wonderful to read the positive press the show has received so far, and we hope everyone will make time in their busy summer schedule to check out $TIMULUS before it closes on Saturday, August 15th.

Diane and I dreamed up the show title together one afternoon this spring– we were trying to find the right tone to bring needed attention to the artists’ exciting work, the awards program with Artadia, and also appropriately nod to the current economic crisis and how important funding is for the arts – now more than ever.

Working with DiveseWorks for more than five years has been a great privilege and we’re looking forward to a bright future of collaborating more together in 2010 and beyond. Thanks for reading … and GO SEE THE SHOW BEFORE AUGUST 15th!
