Library Art Changeout – Monday, September 24, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.

Any member of LHAA who has helped us out with some event is eligible to bring their artwork to display at the Kingwood Public Library!

Anyone who has art currently hanging should come prepared to take your work home.

Any members who have work that you would like to hang on the library wall should bring it in!

Your work should be ready to hang, and you should be prepared to create a label for it with such information as the title of the work, framed dimensions, your name and contact information, and price (although the price will not be shown on the tag).

If you have helped us as a volunteer this season you are eligible to bring samples of your work to be displayed at the library for viewing by (and sale to) the public.  Helping to take down the previous art pieces and to hang the new ones counts as volunteering!  The entire process should not take more than an hour or so.

Change of Policy Regarding Artwork Sold 

Any painting hung in an LHAA-sponsored venue will be subject to a 15% commission if sold within six months of the sales exposure.

Back in the Library

Our Artwork is on Display at the Kingwood Public Library Again!

At the request of the library, our society has brought some of our art pieces to display on their wall once again.  A notable addition is the wall of student art, contributed by some of our new student members.  Thank you, kids!

On Wednesday, June 27 at 4:00 p.m. the Kingwood Public Library will hold its official grand opening.  The Lake Houston Area Artists are invited to attend as their guests.  All of our members are welcome to attend, whether you have art hanging here or not.

Lets come help celebrate the return of our library!

Library Art Hanging

All Member Artists:

If you have art that you would like to hang at the Kingwood Public Library on Monday, June 18, at 9:00 a.m., please let us know.  It helps us to know how many pieces to expect, so we can plan appropriately.

If you will be joining us for the art hanging event, please send a message to Lynda Feierabend at:

lynda226@aol.com

We are recommending a maximum of two pieces of art per artist.  Hope to see you on Monday!

 

Kingwood Public Library

Kingwood Public Library is Back!

Not only is the library ready to come back, but they are very eager to have our art on their wall again!  On Monday, June 18 at 9:00 a.m. we are invited to bring pieces of art to the library to hang on their wall.  Any member who has volunteered to help us out is welcome to bring a piece of art (make sure it’s ready to hang) for display.  If you help us on the 18th with the hanging, that counts!

Of course it’s summer, and many of us are away on vacation or involved with summer activities, but let’s see how many works of art we can bring in to decorate the library.

And please mark your calendar for the library’s Grand Opening on Wednesday, June 27, at 4:00 p.m.  We are invited to attend!

A Letter to Our Members

Dear Members,

The Lake Houston Area Artists is so appreciative of your volunteering and your interest in our society.  Without you we would not have a club to learn, to educate and to support our community with art scholarships for the Lone Star Art College students.  We have worked and continue to work to get talented artists to demonstrate their art for you each month.  Because we want to have the best club in the Lone Star Art Guild we want to hear from you so that we can keep moving forward in a positive and productive way.

We want to hear from you and listen to what you most want in an art society (To sell your art? To learn from other artists? To connect socially and professionally with other artists?).  Any ideas you might have to attract students and more members into our club are always welcome.  Since the flood we have lost many of our members and we are in the process of rebuilding.  We need volunteers, as greeters and as helpers on our different committees, to make all of this possible.  Let us hear from you before our May 15 meeting.  We are gearing up to have an even more exciting club, starting in September, and we need your help.  Please send your responses to the email address below.

Thanks so much,

Lynda Feierabend, LHAA Community Art Relations
