Getty Museum Challenge

We Hope All of You are Staying Safe and Healthy

While we all shelter at home, we thought we would suggest the recent challenge by the Getty Museum in Los Angeles:

Getty Museum’s quarantine challenges sees people recreate works of art using household items

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles has challenged fans around the world to recreate their favourite famous pieces of art whilst in isolation at home — and the results are genius.

Taking inspiration from the the museum‘s online catalogue of artwork, the playful challenge has only one requirement: you must use no more than three objects lying around the home. You’ll see below that the rule hasn’t always been strictly followed, but it is just a bit of fun after all!

There’s been thousands of entries across social media with creative takes on some of the most iconic paintings and sculptures. From David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash to Van Gogh’s Starry Night, take a look at some of the brilliant uploads using household items…

And the results are just brilliant.

Spring Art Show

Hello, Artists

By now you have undoubtedly heard of many event cancellations in our area, so this one will not come has a surprise.  The City of Houston has cancelled all community center events through April 30, including our April 25 Spring Art Show.

Those of you who won prizes (through First Honorable Mention) will still be able to enter their work in the LSAG summer convention.  We will give you word about that as it comes to us.

We will continue to think positively, and all look forward to an amazing art show in the fall!

Thank you and stay healthy!

 

March General Meeting Canceled

Artists,

After much discussion and careful consideration, we have decided that it will be in the best interests of our members to cancel this month’s meeting.  Most of us are either in the at-risk group or know someone close to us who is in that group.

Stay home and create more beautiful art!

We will look forward to seeing you all at the April meeting.

Demo Artist for February – Linda Dellandre, Landscapes

Landscapes are my primary form of expression, whether oil or pastel, but plein air is always preferred.  I am awed by the beauty of the land and I try to communicate to the art viewers, a sense of the places I paint, the certain lights of day, or simple glimpses from the side of the road.

I left Sedona in 2011 and have found so much beauty in the Hill Country and the rolling ranges of southeastern Texas. In the plein air spirit, I’ve found beautiful scenes and painted them from the back of my van, while biking, and from my kayak on a lovely body of water.

January General Meeting

Happy New Year to All!

Art Changeout at Kingwood Public Library

We will be changing the art hanging at Kingwood Public Library on Monday, January 27, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.

If you have art hanging at the library, be prepared to take it home with you.  If you have helped us as a volunteer during the season you may bring some new pieces to hang.  Remember, your art must be ready to hang, with picture wire – NOT the toothed hangers.  Our art display occupies one whole wall on the second floor of the library, and we rotate the pieces every 3-4 months.  Anyone interested in buying the art they see can contact the artist using the information on the label each of us fills out when we hang our work.

Our General Meeting for January Will be on Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Demo Artist for January is Sylvia Trybek – Still Life

Sylvia Trybek is an award-winning artist specializing in representational painting including still lifes, landscapes, and figurative works.  Working alla prima from life models and subjects is her preferred form of self-expression.  She composes her still life arrangements using props she is emotionally attached to or involved with in her daily activities.

She paints the essence of what she feels and sees.  Strong composition, lively colors, and emphasis on solid drawing form a foundation of her painting, teaching style and philosophy.  As an artist and a teacher, Trybek believes in strict adherence to the highest standards of quality, excellence, and integrity.

Trybek received Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Houston, Texas.  Her teachers include William Anzalone, David Leffel, Howard Terpning, and Master Lim Eow.

Reminder – Our Spring Art Show and Competition Will Be on Saturday, April 25, 2020

Details about registration to follow.  Stay tuned for further details.

We will again be allowing artists to bring in their work for display only to our Gallery, next to the art show entries.  You can submit work to the gallery in addition to your art show entries, or instead.
