 Art at Redbud Cafe

 

Redbud Cafe is delighted to feature the Ceramic Artwork of Dee and Terry Buck on the wall at Redbud Cafe this spring. The Bucks have some new work on hand this week, so be sure to drop by before the end of the show!

The Buck’s work will be on display and available for purchase at Redbud Cafe/Brieger Pottery through the last week of May, 2017.

Native central Texans, Terry and Dee Buck have worked together as potters for over 40 years, owning and operating Buck Pottery in Gruene for 33 of those years.

Our work is an attempt to preserve the pottery craft tradition and the humanistic qualities this craft brings to the goods we use in our everyday life.

Communicating in Color

The artwork of Meg LeCompte and Megan Lee

About the Artists:

Margaret (“Meg”) LeCompte was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and like many other Cajuns who came before her, she “got to Texas as fast as she could.” Meg’s early childhood was spent in Houston, but in 2006, she and her family made Austin their home. Meg faces unique challenges as a young woman with autism and limited language skills, but through art, she has found an expressive outlet.  Meg takes great pride in her pieces:  The process of creating brings her great excitement and joy, and she is often heard to remark, “Wow!” or “Cool!” as the development of her work progresses.

Due to her disability, Meg was not afforded the same opportunities for formal art instruction growing up.  As she has matured and become an adult learner, Meg has pursued a variety of creative interests, from cross-stitch and knitting to music and piano.  During the last year and a half, her weekly art classes have enriched her life tremendously.  Her newfound skills have brought her greater focus and satisfaction, as well as a sense of competency and achievement not typically afforded individuals with autism.  Through her art, Meg has gained a new dimension of expressive capabilities, allowing her true self to shine.

Megan Lee was born in Austin, Texas and is an adult with Autism.  Although Megan has limited language skills, she is very competitive when playing video games and loves participating in Special Olympics in bowling, basketball and track.

Individuals with a disability are special.   Special in that they have the biggest heart, happiest smile, and that overall positive attitude that is contagious.  That is Megan Lee.  She is a ray of sunshine.

Artwork includes acrylic paints, water color, pastel, color pencils, and clay pottery.
