Marking its tenth year in the Dallas Design District, Laura Rathe Fine Art is pleased to present DECADE, a group anniversary exhibition commemorating the gallery’s history and celebrating an exciting future ahead. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, February 18, from 4:30-7:30pm.
Laura Rathe started her career working as a private art dealer before establishing Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA) in 1998 in Houston, Texas. In 2013, Rathe, with the help of Gallery Director, Janice Meyers, opened LRFA's second gallery in Dallas on Dragon Street, further expanding the institution's presence in Texas. Since then, LRFA Dallas has helped foster the city’s remarkable art community. As a woman-owned, women-run business, LRFA has continually built platforms for artists, watching them rise and push the bounds of the world of contemporary art. Rathe and her team’s unorthodox approach to creating conduits within the art world has supported her vision of enriching lives through art, cultivating personal relationships with each artist, client, and designer.
DECADE honors this incredible journey in Dallas through a breadth of stylistic approaches and innovative media by notable artists from around the world such as James Verbicky, Audra Weaser, Gian Garofalo, Matt Devine, Stallman Studio, Zhuang Hong Yi, Hunt Slonem, Lucrecia Waggoner, Meredith Pardue, Carly Allen Martin and many more. This February, LRFA is also delighted to introduce Linling Lu, Marcos Anziani, Lynn Sanders, Ian Rayer-Smith and Kandis Susol to Dallas.
Through this momentous exhibition, LRFA pays tribute to the past decade, which could not have been possible without the unyielding support of their patrons, the passion and drive from their staff, and of course, the immeasurable talent and unwavering commitment of their artists.
DECADE will be on view through March 25, 2023.
