 Laura Rathe Fine Art Proudly Celebrates Its Fifth Year in the Design District with a Special Group Anniversary Exhibition in Dallas, Texas

Marking its fifth year in the Dallas Design District, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA) is pleased to present To the Future, a group anniversary exhibition featuring new works from distinguished gallery artists, with an opening reception on Saturday, February 17th from 5-8pm.

LRFA first presented their elite roster of artists to the Dallas art scene in 2013 and since then has has helped cultivate the city’s remarkable art community. In just five years, they have expanded that roster to include over forty local, national, and international artists. To the Future highlights this expansive growth by exhibiting a variety of brand new works of innovative media from these successful artists such as Zhuang Hong Yi, Meredith Pardue, Stallman, and Cassandria Blackmore. LRFA will also be introducing Chris Wood, Dylan Gebbia-Richards and Audra Weaser to their ever-expanding roster.

LRFA would like to recognize that this incredible success for the past half decade would not have been possible without the unbroken support from their patrons. Their devotion and love for contemporary art is what allows these artists to further progress in their careers and continue creating noteworthy and inspiring work for years to come.

To keep the momentum of the Dallas art scene moving, LRFA is sponsoring the Young American Talent Juried Art Competition & Exhibition for North Texas High School Students at El Centro College H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery. This event provides the opportunity for young budding artists in the Dallas-area to utilize their talents and compete with peers and receive recognition in a professional gallery setting. LRFA is proud to support the artists of the future.

To the Future will be on view through March 24th, 2018. For more information on the YAT exhibition, please visit
