Portrait Of A Warrior Memorial Art Gallery
The vision is a new permanent home for the The Portrait of a Warrior Memorial Art Gallery (POWMAG inc). We are requesting the State of Texas Donate, Lease or make available the Baytown Texas National Guard Armory at 111 W. Wye Dr. Baytown TX. 77521. Please help us by signing our petition to make it the permanent home for the gallery.
As you step into the gallery, you are greeted by the sons and daughters of America. The fallen heroes hang as a memorial of their unselfish gift to us all as they gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
Their eyes follow you as you stroll gazing at the paintings in which the artist has meticulously portrayed their lives. They were husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, and brave warriors who laid down their lives as they took their oath to defend the freedom we all know and love.
Ken "The Dauber" Pridgeon has made it his mission to paint a portrait of these men and women we know as heroes. Each family of the fallen heroes is then given a print as his way of honoring their loved one.
So many families have already received a portrait of their loved one, yet there are many more to be painted. It is through the generous support of others that help the artist and gallery continue to memorialize our service men and women.
The current location has no more room, we are over capacity and need to expand. Visit our web site at http://www.portraitofawarrior.org for more information.
POWMAG inc. is a non-profit organization as approved by the I.R.S under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
The building will have assigned office and conference rooms for the VFW, The American Legion, PTSD Foundation and our Veterans Helping Veterans programs, also Lee College and their Vet programs.
Also our goal is to give our Vets a place where they can be comfortable with each other and get their courage back and accomplish some of their goals that they have given up on.
Please we need your support.
