Description White Rock Lake: woodpecker, dragonflies, scissortail flycatcher, sailboats, bluebird, ducks, spider, flowers, egret, trees, water, grass and clouds. And in the water, the legendary 'Lady in the Lake.' Commissioned by the BathHouse Cultural Center--this and 3 other similar landscapes hang in the restrooms.(Original: acrylic on board.)
Ann Huey, Dallas Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I am proud to be from a place where so much talent has sprouted from oil and rice fields and drainage ditches and other toxic goo—Beaumont, Texas—a shady, stinky corner of the state that shares a tendency to mildew with its close neighbor, Louisiana. Naturally, I have made idols out of the likes of big time artists John Alexander, Paul Manes, Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur), photographer Keith Carter, writer Mary Karr (Groves), dead singer Janis Joplin (Port Arthur), and a terrific wealth of other-worldly-gifted, interesting characters not famous, but just as unbalanced.
