We are in the process of compiling a catalogue raisonné. This will serve as the definitive, comprehensive archive of the artists' original paintings. The inclusion of your painting(s) in this catalog will both verify the authenticity of your work and provide provenance to those who may inherit or own it someday. We will provide you a "Certificate of Authenticity" as well as current estimate of replacement value for insurance purposes.

Randy's personal archive (including his catalogue raisonné), will soon be permanently preserved by the University of Texas at Arlington Library in their "Special Collections" department. Additionally, his life story and oral history will also become a permanent part of their "Texas Disability History Collection."

Souders art benefits Christopher Reeve FoundationChrisReeve.jpg (15076 bytes)

For 5 years in a row, Randy Souders lent his artwork to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation.  His last project involved the publication of 3,050,000 (three million, fifty thousand) calendars featuring one of his images. These were mailed to supporters across America and around the world. Proceeds assisted researchers in their quest to find a cure for paralysis due to spinal cord injury and disease. Randy Souders suffered a spinal cord injury in 1972 and has been confined to a wheelchair ever since.
