The Live Oak Art Center (LOAC) is dedicated to promoting the fine arts, expanding art education, and enhancing cultural enrichment. Housed in the historic Brunson Building in Columbus, Texas, admission is always free and open to the public.

LOAC is proud to offer a robust permanent collection, a diverse and exciting exhibition schedule, and a variety of community education programs. Our exhibition calendar consists of approximately 10 exhibitions a year, featuring established and emerging artist from around the state as well as artwork in a wide variety of media.

We invite you to stop by and see all that LOAC has to offer!

Bling out your denim with diamonds (or rhinestones!) and join the Live Oak Art Center for Denim & Diamonds at the Old Brunson Saloon on October 15, 2022.

Festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. with a glass of Prosecco, tasty Hors d'oeuvres, red and white wine, beer, a special “cocktail” “Luck of the Draw” wine pull, and opportunities to donate to the Big Board of Wishes and bid on silent and live auction items.

Funds from Denim & Diamonds at the Old Brunson Saloon will directly support the Live Oak Art Center’s educational outreach and programming, children’s art classes, facilities management, general operations, and scholarship program. With your support we will be able to continue to provide important art-related programs for children and adults throughout our community to enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you at Denim & Diamonds at the Old Brunson Saloon!
