Each year, Southlake’s Art in the Square features several artists and chooses the artwork of one for the logo of that year’s festival. Here are the year’s logo and featured artists for the 2024 festival, April 26-28 at Southlake Town Square.

Erin Hanson

McMinnville, Oregon

Erin Hanson began painting when she was 8. When she was a teenager, she was an apprentice at a mural studio where she painted 40-foot-tall works on canvas and sold art commissions. After getting a degree in bioengineering from the University of California at Berkeley, she became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada, where, inspired by the colorful scenery, she returned to painting and resolved to create one painting every week for the rest of her life.

Thomas LeGault

Plymouth, Michigan

Thomas LeGault started painting at 13 and received his formal training at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. Over nearly 50 years, LeGault has exhibited in galleries, museum shows and art tours. He’s known for his use of color and mirror reflective imaging. He estimates he has paintings hanging in thousands of private collections worldwide.

Lisa Kattenbraken
