The annual all-member exhibition highlights our family of artists and provides a chance to stand out as a Merit Artist the following year. An invited juror will chose five Merit Artists, and a sixth is selected by popular vote.
Each year an outstanding artist is selected for a solo exhibition during the summer, and creates the signature "poster piece" which becomes the official poster of the Rockport Art Festival. The original artwork that inspires the poster is auctioned off as the final item of the Live Auction during the Art Auction Party, preceding the Annual Art Art Festival.
Seabrook artist, Vorakit Chinookoswong, known as V. Chin, has been crafting fine porcelain and stoneware pieces for over 30 years. A veteran of art festivals and gallery shows throughout Texas, Chin creates glossy stoneware vases, bowls, cups, and other pieces bearing his signature mark: a clay frog. Striving for a balance between aesthetics and function, Chin's goal is to create "good" ceramics. His subtle glazing adds an extraordinary level of elegance to his pottery.
