WHAT: 2022 Crafting a Legacy Spring Luncheon
At the 2022 Crafting a Legacy Spring Luncheon, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) will celebrate its 20th anniversary by honoring Catherine Morgan, the woman whose love for the arts inspired the organization’s founding. Along with the original board of directors—this year’s honorary chairs—and a group of dedicated supporters and collaborators, Catherine and her parents, Sara and Bill Morgan, envisioned HCCC as a place where artists and staff could work alongside one another, and the public could not only view art but experience craft as a living practice. Now, 20 years later, HCCC is thrilled to celebrate a landmark anniversary as one of the most unique art venues in Houston and the region.
The program will include remarks by HCCC Board President Brad Bucher and a Q&A with Catherine Morgan and HCCC Executive Director Perry Price. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on artworks made by celebrated craft artists in the silent auction, purchase stunning centerpieces, and shop fabulous jewelry and accessories in the Asher Gallery pop-up shop.
Proceeds from the Spring Luncheon will benefit HCCC and its mission to advance education on the process, product, and history of craft. HCCC introduces visitors of all ages to contemporary craft through extraordinary exhibitions and programs, hands-on activities and workshops, and experiences with working artists in on-site studios. Admission is always free.
