May Updates

Hello, Artists!

We would like to take a moment here to give you the latest information about recent and upcoming events.

May Meeting

Our May meeting (the last until September) allowed us to learn about encaustics from our demo artist, Gwendolyn Plunkett.  Since few of us knew anything about the technique, it proved to be a valuable experience.  Thank you, Gwendolyn!

Library Art Changeout

The art changeout at Kingwood Public Library took place on Monday, May 16.  The new wall of art looks great!  These art works will be at the library all summer, so stop by and check it out!

LSAG (Lone Star Art Guild) Convention Update

Dates: Friday and Saturday, July 29 & 30
Location: Klein Multipurpose Facility in Spring.

Registration for this event should open in June.  We will let you know as soon as we have more information.  Anyone whose work won a ribbon at our Fall or Spring Shows is eligible to register that work for the LSAG Convention.

Note:  Registration will be online, and you will need to send us your registration fee well in advance to have your registration verified.  Your check needs time to make it through the USPS to our post office box before the deadline.  So allow plenty of time.  Waiting until the last couple of days won’t work.

LHAA is one of the hosts for this year’s convention, and our responsibility is that of providing demo artists.  Here is where we need your help.  We need people to help our demo artists with their presentations.

The job includes:
(1) Arriving about half an hour before the presentation to make sure the artist has                everything he/she needs.
(2) Introducing the artist (Reading a short introduction from a piece of paper)
(3) Staying for the entire presentation to make sure it goes smoothly
(4) Helping the artist with cleanup if necessary

This amounts to a commitment of about an hour and a half of your time.  There will be four demos at the convention, so four people each willing to devote 1 1/2 hours to helping out would be greatly appreciated.  If you are interested, send us an email for further details.

The LSAG Convention is a great opportunity to display your work, pick up valuable tips from demos, and purchase art supplies.  We hope to see you there!
