Lloyd Mays Art Exhibit at Brenham Bus Depot

Lloyd Mays was born February 22, 1956 in Brenham, Texas. Born the last of fourteen children, he found out early on that his verbal expressions were either overshadowed or ignored by his parents and siblings. Upon receiving a paint-by-numbers kit for his sixth birthday, Lloyd say that painting eliminated the need to compete for his family’s attention. Everyone was now surrounding him to see what he had made. Today his paintings and poetry can be seen and read in Brenham as well as abroad. Most of his paintings are drawn from memories of his childhood and from area he was raised. The Bus Depot is open to the public Saturday from 10-4, but by appointment Wednesday – Friday.
