February Demo Artist:  Holly Hunter Berry – Abstract Expressionist

Representationalist, impressionist, colorist, expressionist are a few of the “ist” terms that have defined her work at various times. She continues to grow and push herself to explore new fresh approaches to communicating her message. Never tired of “pushing paint around” she looks forward to working at the easel every day possible. At this stage in Holly’s career she enjoys giving back to the community by teaching her weekly classes and periodic workshops. She tries to teach in a way as to take the mystery out of the painting process. Intuition is important but a strong foundation is important as well and that is her focus. Intuition is personal and can’t be taught…that is the voice of the artist! In addition to giving demonstrations for art groups she has also been asked to be a judge at various art shows.

Holly’s paintings have been exhibited in both solo and group shows in the United States, Central America and Europe for almost 40 years.

There are private collectors in the United States, Central America and Europe. She has been represented by galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona  and in several locations in Texas. Corporate commissions include the Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona and the Scottsdale Healthcare System, Shea Campus, Woman’s Health Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Article in the Tribune

Artists,

An article about Lake Houston Area Artists has been published in the most recent issue of The Tribune!  Below are the instructions to access the piece:
Go to www.ourtribune.com.  In the upper right hand corner you will see a google search.  Type in Lake Houston Area Artist and it will take you to another link.  About half way down the page you will find the article headline, click on it and page 4C will come up.  There is a picture of Dr. Nunnery and her staff.  The article is just great.  We would love to hear from you about it.  Thanks.
Many thanks to all the artists who contributed to this display!  Dr. Nunnery and her staff are delighted with the decor, and displays like this are a great way to get your artwork seen by members of the public.  We expect to be updating the art from time to time, switching out some pieces and hanging new ones.  So watch this space for your next opportunity to show off your great art!

Reminder – Library Art Changeout

Artists – 

 

We will be changing the art hanging at the Kingwood Public Library on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.  Anyone who already has art there needs to come collect it to make space for other artists – or to replace it with other pieces of your own.

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.
