0 Rockport Center for the Arts | "R.C.A. Will Dedicate a Sculpture Triptych by Danville Chadbourne..."

A gallery talk with the artist and a solo exhibition opening begin at 4:30 PM. The exhibit will run through June 11.

The process to procure the sculptures started in 2015 in consultation with the artist and the family of James A. Smallenberger, whose contribution made this acquisition possible. The three large-scale, high-fired ceramic works complement the building and the seaside setting of the Art Center’s growing collection of outdoor works by important Texas sculptors such as James Surls, Kent Ullberg, and Rockport’s own Jesús Moroles.

0 Letter to the Editor | Re: The Groundwater Conservation District Proposition | by Diane Davis

April 29, 2016

To Whom It May Concern:

Normally, I stay as far away from politics as I possibly can, but the recent developments regarding the Groundwater Conservation District proposition has more than gotten my attention.

From my viewpoint, I am very disappointed that our local elected officials appear to have thrown something as serious as groundwater control out to the public in the form of an election with little to no explanation or made any serious effort to notify each and every property owner in Aransas County of what was to come. Even more concerning is that if you question what the action plan impact is for county residents, you will be told that a plan won’t be formalized until they are voted in. WHAT?  Think about it, if voted in this board will have the power to put monitors on wells, impose fees on well water usage, impose restrictions, pay themselves salaries, etc. I am not saying this would occur, but this board would have the power to do all of the above. I want to know much more before I give anyone that kind of authority. Oh, and of course, our taxes will go up.
