For Immediate Release


Rockport Center for the Arts Welcomes

Larry Felder,

As Associate Director


Having spent his childhood in San Antonio, Texas, Felder graduated from San Antonio College with an Associate Degree in Fine Art and went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Austin in 1974. 

His specialty was studio painting, but his early training in Architecture, and interest in graphic design led him to a distinguished career as an executive in the advertising and publishing fields.  Larry retired from those fields in 2003 and relocated to Rockport to devote his time to his early love of painting and involvement in the community. 

Larry Felder is co-owner of the Felder Gallery on Austin Street in Rockport’s Heritage District. 

He is President of the Rockport Heritage District Association, and has been a Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce member since 2004.  Interestingly, Larry has been an active member of San Antonio’s Conservation Society since 1994. 

In 2004 Larry was an artist-instructor for the Art Center leading a seminar on ‘How to Paint Water’ and teaching ‘Beginning Oil Painting’ classes.

Rockport Center for the Arts is pleased to welcome Larry Felder as Associate Director. 

We look forward to Larry’s contributions in the area of exhibitions, marketing, graphic design and strategic planning.
