About the Houston
Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank is a solution to both hunger and food
waste. This organization is the largest of its kind in America and is
nationally recognized as Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year in 2015. The
Food Bank distributes 79 million nutritious meals through its network of 600
food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other hunger relief charities in
southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year. 

Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from
the warehouse at 535 Portwall, and meals for kids are prepared and distributed
from Keegan Center, a 15,000 square-foot industrial kitchen. We rescue food
before it reaches the landfill through our Retail Pickup program with area
grocery stores. Additional community services include nutrition education,
school-based programs, and food stamp application assistance. Red Barrels offer
a convenient way for grocery shoppers to donate nonperishables for their
neighbors in need. The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is a certified

LCD Gallery is proud to present "3 Explorations in Luminosity", an exhibit with newly curated, contemporary encaustic paintings by artists: Pamela Beverly-Quigley, Danny Setjo, and Doug Smith. Drawing, painting and photography converge in contemporary abstract paintings, resulting in luminous colors and textures.

The encaustic process, painting using pigment infused hot wax, is one of the oldest known forms of painting. This wax process technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100–300 AD.

The exhibition will be on display from April 19 through June 30, 2018.

Opening Reception: April 19, 2018, 5:30pm - 8:30pm
