We are thrilled to announce our upcoming Spring Group Show, featuring new works from local artists Joey Brock, Felice House, and Dana Younger. Our exhibition will showcase a mix of mixed media portraiture, landscape, and sculpture that highlights the unique style and technique of each artist, but each inspired by the people and landscapes we call home. Through their work, they capture the essence of our community and the beauty of Texas.

Please join us for an opening reception on April 1, 2023 from 4 -8 p.m. at Main Gallery located at 200 Main Street in Smithville, Texas.


Born in Fort Worth, Texas and growing up in southern Colorado, Joey Brock is interested in celebrating people and our collective humanity. Brock earned his degree in Fashion Merchandising from Bauder College in 1988, and then became a self-taught artist with over 20 years of experience. His work has been shown nationally at venues including the Bradbury Art Museum, Arkansas State University, (Jonesboro AR), the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts / LHUCA, (Lubbock, TX), The Delaware Contemporary, (Wilmington DE), the Meadows Gallery - University of Texas at Tyler, (Tyler, TX) and Northpark Center, (Dallas, TX) as well as numerous solo and group exhibitions at galleries across the nation. In 2022 his work was selected by Lauren R.

O'Connell, curator of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, (Scottsdale, AZ) for New American Paintings, Issue 156. In addition, his has been featured on the digital billboard of the Pendry on Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA. Brock currently resides in Dallas, Texas.


In the Re-Western series, House projects contemporary women into heroic roles formerly played by western movie icons such as John Wayne, James Dean and Gary Cooper. By utilizing the gender flip, House points to the gendered nature of the hero in culture and begs the question, “What if John Wayne were a woman?”.

House’s latest painting and drawings series, Sum You Some Me, depicts the head and shoulders of women interrelating with the landscape. The resulting tension between the figure and the natural world creates a fertile interpretive space within which the viewer can project and reflect on his or her own sense of self, nature, and wholeness.


Dana Younger is a Texas sculptor who earned a BA in Theater from the University of Texas at Austin. His experiences in the theater, as well as in construction and boatbuilding, led him to a career in fabrication. Younger began his work as an artist as a founding partner of Blue Genie Art Industries, an art fabrication company, and the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, an annual holiday art show now in its 18th year. Currently he is the Exhibits Manager for Texas Parks and Wildlife where he works with writers, designers and fabricators to make exhibits for Texas state parks. His sculpture work has been featured in galleries throughout Texas and the US including  the Meijer Sculpture Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan, New Mexico State University, the Louise Hopkins-Underwood Center for the Arts in Lubbock, Texas, Wright State University in Ohio, Purdue University in Indiana, Abilene Christian University, Texas A&M and Stephen F. Austin University in Texas . He says, “Sculpture is a complex puzzle that provides a steady stream of unique challenges to solve, that’s why I love it.”
