Valley House Gallery & Sculpture GardenON BEING HUMAN
Valley House Gallery is pleased to present an online version of our exhibition "On Being Human."
These last months have reminded us of the importance of our basic humanity and the inherent value of others. After isolating, we felt a need to be surrounded by people—hence this invitational exhibition about people seen through the artist’s eye. In addition to Valley House artists, we have invited figurative artists whom we admire to participate:
Deborah Ballard, Vera Barnett, Lu Ann Barrow, Peter Bonner, Curt Brill, Lloyd Brown, Jerry Bywaters, Sean Cairns, Jeanne Campbell, Lindy Chambers, John Cobb, Brian Cobble, Robert D. Cocke, Carol A. Cook, Laurie Hickman Cox, Lee Baxter Davis, Laurence Edwards, David Everett, Max Ferguson, Barnaby Fitzgerald, Scott Gentling, Miles Cleveland Goodwin, Ira Greenberg, Jimmy Hill, William Eric Horsbrugh-Porter, Otis Huband, Sedrick Huckaby, Anita Huffington, Kathryn Keller, Sirena LaBurn, Emily LaCour, Rudolf Sotelo Lailson, Jungeun Lee, Laurie Lipton, Jun-Cheng Liu, William B. Montgomery, Philip Morsberger, Fred Nagler, Trish Nickell, Gail Norfleet, Michael O’Keefe, Luke Sides, Hadar Sobol, Ellen Soderquist, Everett Spruce, Earl Stroh, Bob Stuth-Wade, James Surls, Chaco Terada, Valton Tyler, Mary Vernon, Donald S. Vogel, Amy Werntz, Jim Woodson, and Miguel Zapata.
This exhibition is held in memory of Lu Ann Barrow (1934–2020). Her paintings enriched our lives with uplifting parables on being human.
All works are available to see in person.
"On Being Human" is on view every Monday through Saturday, 10:00am-5:00pm, through October 31.
Masks are required.
Please call 972-239-2441 or email gallery @ valleyhouse.com for further information.
We will be adding video interviews and written statements from our artists for the duration of this exhibition - so please check back!

Second generation owners Cheryl and Kevin Vogel, along with Director Laura Green, represent established and emerging contemporary artists working in inventive ways with traditional media. Sculpture is on view throughout the 4+ acre garden. In addition, the gallery offers 19th and 20th century American and European art, as well as significant Early Texas works.
