About The Local Love Awards

The Local Love Awards is an inaugural fundraising gala highlighting and honoring our local small businesses, local entrepreneurs, and local humanitarian organizations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This will be an exciting event to recognize individuals and minority businesses that are often the over looked and forgotten infrastructures, that transform areas into communities, and holds those communities together by serving and meeting the needs of the people who live there. These businesses and individuals contribute greatly to the unique character of our city by improving our neighborhoods, strengthening our economy, providing our citizens more job opportunities, and giving hope to our young business-minded children that their entrepreneural spirit should live on. It is time to put the spotlight on the true backbone of our city. This event will include awards being given in specific categories, dinner, dancing, entertainment and more.

All the proceeds from the Local Love Awards will be donated to Project 16. Project 16 is a non-profit organization with a charitable and educational intent, geared toward serving our underprivileged, at-risk youth, through support, education, and exposure while instilling basic life skills to help prepare them for a better, more successful future. Project 16 wants all kids prepared to be outstanding and upstanding citizens, and workforce ready before they graduate from high school.

This SOLD OUT event will be hosted by DeDe in the Morning, Michael Shawn with music by DJ Steve Nice. The event will be held at Noah’s Event Center in Las Colinas.

  1. Sedrick Huckaby

    Sedrick Huckaby’s paintings and drawings metaphorically express universal themes of faith, family, community, and heritage – with a pictorial aggression that approaches relief sculpture. Huckaby focuses on the subjects of quilts and portraits in his quest to glorify everyday people. Huckaby states, “I believe my paintings are done in a language more closely in tune with my soul than the language of my tongue.” Huckaby is known for his monumental scale of painting, with his largest painting thus far being his 80 foot long, four-part painting, “A Love Supreme,” painted over a period of eight years, for which Huckaby was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Huckaby is also therecipient of an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award, an honorable mention award winner in the 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition and a 2019 finalist. Additionally, he is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell foundation grant, Elizabeth Greenshield award, and was the Texas State Artist for 2018.

    After earning a BFA at Boston University in 1997, and an MFA from Yale University in 1999, he participated in the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center residency and traveled the U.S. and Europe studying old master paintings. When he returned to the U.S. Huckaby settled into his home town of Fort Worth, Texas, where he was born in 1975. Since returning home he has been invited to participate in a number of residencies and fellowships including a Davison Family Fellowship from the Amon Carter Museum of American art, an Elaine De Kooning House residency and an Art for Change residency in New Delhi, India. Huckaby’s work has entered the permanent collections of numerous museums and institutions including the American Embassy in Namibia; Amon Carter Museum of American Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Yale University Art Gallery; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He is married to artist Letitia Huckaby and is the father of three children, Rising Sun, Halle Lujah and Rhema Rain Huckaby. He holds the position of Associate Professor at The University of Texas at Arlington and is represented by the Philip Martin Gallery in Los Angeles and Talley Dunn Gallery in Dallas
