The 11th annual Crafting a Legacy Spring Luncheon will honor Phyllis Childress, a creative force and extraordinary volunteer, who has served as Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s board president twice, led major fundraising efforts, and advocated for the nonprofit arts center in every imaginable way over the last 15 years.

The luncheon program will include lively remarks by Phyllis’ best PALS (Pinkie Searls, Anne Lamkin Kinder, Lynn Baird, and Susan Padon). Guests will have the opportunity to bid on fine craft made by celebrated artists in the silent auction and purchase stunning centerpiece artworks.

The Spring Luncheon is chaired by Cathy Brock and Anny Whyte.  All proceeds benefit HCCC and its mission to advance education on the process, product, and history of craft. By showcasing emerging and acclaimed artists in exhibitions, introducing visitors of all ages to contemporary craft through hands-on programming, and supporting the development of working artists through its artist residency program, HCCC has served as a treasured resource in the Houston arts community and the region for nearly 20 years.
