Transcript HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Newsletter, August 2017 Downtown Houston inundated by the flood of 1935 (l); Emma Richardson Cherry Buffalo Bayou Flood Control c1937 (r) Delayed by Harvey! It has been a hard two weeks for Houston and all of Southeast Texas. Many of our friends and neighbors have lost their homes and had their lives disrupted in ways that would have seemed unimaginable just a few days ago. Some have lost their lives. And a long, hard period of recovery is ahead. This issue of the HETAG Newsletter has been delayed by the storm. I almost decided to skip it altogether. But I believe, and I suspect most HETAGers would agree, that art can be part of the recovery of our city and region. It has been in the past, as the images included here attest (though, since Houstonians are always looking to a better future, I’ve found surprisingly few images of disasters past by our artists of the past). Earlier Houston Art exhibitions and programs that may provide some respite – maybe even some comfort – are already planned, rescheduled in some cases, and I wanted to let you know about them. We’ll probably need them now more than ever.
