I am an artist originally from the New England area, living and creating in Kingwood, Texas.

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

April General Meeting

Our April General Meeting Will Be on Tuesday, April 17, 2018

6:30pm Meet & Greet

April Demo Artist Will Be Our Own President, Debra Jones – Pastels

Debra studied fine art painting at the Baton Rouge Academy of Fine Arts.  Shortly after, she moved to Washington State where she painted and taught for 23 years.  She taught art at elementary and middle school levels for 10 years and opened her own art school  where she taught privately for another 15 years before retiring and returning to Texas.  These days she mostly focuses on watercolor, pastels, and colored pencils.  She is a firm believer that when it comes to art, we learn by doing and is open to any new experience in painting.  She invites you to adopt her own personal motto – Don’t Be Afraid To Be Bold!

Reminder:  

On Sunday, April 15 we will be changing out the art hanging at the Kingwood Hospital Rehab Unit, Building A.  Community Art Relations Chair Lynda Feierabend will be at the side door of the building at 1:00 p.m. to receive your art and to direct you.

Each artist is limited to two pieces for hanging at this location.  If you already have art there, you may want to change what pieces you have on display or remove anything over your allotted two pieces.

If you have helped LHAA with any event or activity this year you are eligible to hang your art with us.  Helping us with the art change-out on Sunday counts!
