On a monthly basis we meet with someone from around the bend -the Coastal Bend!- as we open our arms to individuals bringing their art to Corpus Christi. Meet Lynette, a painter from Kingsville, whose pieces we've gotten the pleasure of acquiring here.

The hardest challenge has been getting people to notice my paintings and just getting my name out there.
