LR Art House Opens in Dallas

DALLAS, TX (January 16, 2018) - On January 24th and 25th, 2018, Dallas native Laura Roosevelt launches LR Art House, a new kind of boutique art gallery located in a chic, uptown townhouse.

Rather than encountering paintings or sculptures in a separate, sterile environment, when you walk into LR Art House, you are walking into a home. Like your own living room, LR Art House is warm, inviting, and filled with art that adds to the beauty and harmony of the space.

“At LR Art House, the focus is on bringing art into your life,” says Roosevelt. “Not just paintings, but sculpture, photographs, books. It’s a little like one of my Abstract paintings: I’m layering the art within the gallery so that you’re enveloped in the experience.”

And just like in your own house, your children are welcome.

“This is a very warm, intimate space,” adds Roosevelt. “I want families to feel welcome. And if a child reaches out to touch one of my paintings, all the better! Touch it. It’s about the texture. It’s another sensory experience.”

Roosevelt herself was captivated by art as a child. Severely dyslexic, reading and writing were difficult for her, but “paintings were orderly.” Their colors, shapes, and textures made sense. An Abstract artist known for her luminous colors and layering techniques, Roosevelt has spent her life developing a visual language of her own. Her work has been exhibited widely and can be found in collections from New England to California, The Bahamas and St Barth’s and, of course, Texas.

Her own experiences have fueled her desire to reach young people through art. As the great-granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, Laura Roosevelt is passionate about history. That passion coupled with her commitment to education has led Roosevelt to pioneer a new form of American art: Historic American Pop. These pieces incorporate iconic photographs with textured backgrounds, reshaping the experience of those moments frozen in time. Her work has been seen in the Day of Infamy exhibit at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, and several of her iconic pieces will rotate into the space at LR Art House.

Roosevelt returns to her Dallas roots with LR Art House, which will feature work by Roosevelt as well as other Dallas artists. The gallery is open by appointment only.
