WITH more than 25 years of experience in the industry, gallery owner Laura Rathe started her career working as a private art dealer before establishing Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA) in 1998 in Houston. LRFA now operates out of two locations in Houston and a third gallery in Dallas on Dragon Street, the city’s premier design district destination. Since the gallery’s inception, LRFA has established itself as a leading contemporary art venue, offering an impressive range of exhibitions and programming to its patrons in both cities.
