Wrap Up for LHAA Spring 2016 Show and Competition

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who stepped up and helped with the show!  Without your help, we could not have a show.
Second, we were very happy to have many new faces at the show, as well as many returning familiar faces.  We had 125 entries from 35 artists!  The level of art work was very impressive as well.  We would like to thank our judge, Laurie Humble, for really taking the time during her walk through and giving such thorough feedback to our artists.
Finally, we would like to congratulate our ribbon winners!  Special kudos to our repeat Best of Show artist, Gridtiya Chotiwan, with her fabulous watercolor “Angels of Fire”.
For those of you who ribboned in our Fall 2015 show and/or Spring 2016 show, you are eligible to enter your ribbon winners in the LSAG Convention Show to be held this summer July 29 and 30th at the Klein ISD Multipurpose Facility.  There you will be competing against the ribbon winners from the other leagues within the LSAG.  More information about the entry process will be forthcoming soon.

Demo Artist for May

Gwendolyn Plunkett, Encaustics

Houston-based contemporary artist Gwendolyn Plunkett, guided by instinct and intuition, uses various media—wax, oils, acrylics, paper, and found objects—to create abstract compositions that investigate notions of form, color, texture, and surface. Recently, Plunkett has been exploring frottage and other printmaking processes that do not require a press.
 Gwen works as an adjunct  professor for Lone Star College, Cy-Fair.  She earned her MFA at University of South Florida, and has a studio in the Heights.

Kingwood Public Library Art Changeout

We will be changing out the artwork at the Kingwood Public Library on Monday, May 16 at 10:30 a.m.  

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.

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!  Volunteers – the library will be closed at that time, so be sure to use the back door.
