St. James' House
We have had wonderful response for our call for art for the diocesan retirement community, St. James' House, Baytown. There are many blank walls to fill. Bishop Andy Doyle invites artists to join him in donating a piece of artwork to St. James' for one of the four living areas, dining room and several hallways that are common areas of the campus. Donated pieces will be exhibited in January 2012 at the Diocesan Center at the EDOT Gallery as well as in an exhibit at the diocese's annual Council in February, 2012 before being hung at St. James'. Several pieces will be chosen to be featured in the March, 2012 issue of Diolog, the new diocesan magazine (with a circulation of 27,700).
Please consider joining the bishop in this effort to share your gifts with those folks who live at St. James'. A receipt for your donation will be provided and all artwork should be delivered to the diocesan office by December 15, ready to hang. Contact Carol E. Barnwell at or 713.520.6444 if you have questions.
