Membership Dues Needed by December 15!!
If you have not yet paid your dues for this season, please bring your money or check to November’s general meeting! We urgently need to submit an up-to-date membership list to Lone Star Art Guild very soon. If LSAG does not receive a list from us, our group may cease to exist in their eyes, and we will not be able to submit art to (or attend) the annual LSAG Convention. The deadline is December 15. Do not wait for the December meeting; there is no December meeting.
Dues are $40 for adults, $10 for students. If you click on “Membership Information” at the top of our web page and scroll down to the bottom, you should be able to download and print a membership form to fill out. If you need to mail in your dues, send your check to “Lake Houston Area Artists” to:

November Demo Artist – Ron Gordon
Born in Memphis Tennessee, raised in rural Mississippi, Ronald Mark Gordon is keenly aware of his southern heritage. The organic and cultural influences of “sense of place” are evident upon meeting him or viewing his paintings. The artist believes that; “All art, from primitive drawing to the most esoteric contemporary form, exists to tell stories. Viewed on a cave or gallery wall, educating or entertaining, inspiring or provocative, the language chosen effects the telling.” “I am a story teller. The people who encourage, promote, view the work, critique, and give their patronage are participants with me. Speaking to their eyes is my privilege.” Gordon holds a BFA from the University of Southern Mississippi and completed graduate hours toward a MED in Art Education. Gordon taught Public School Art in Saginaw Michigan for three years and has worked in a variety of educational programs from pre-school to adult education as an art, photography and crafts instructor. Ron Gordon moved to Houston Texas in 1979 to accept a position as a Graphic Artist and to raise his family. Over the next several years he would work as a Free Lance Graphic Artist and Illustrator for Oil and Petro-Engineering firms. In 1986, Gordon, answered another calling and entered the ministry. He served as Head Master of a Christian Academy and as an Associate to the Senior Pastor. When Ron resigned from the Academy after ten years, he was uncertain of his future, but, certain of his faith and that he would paint again. Art projects began to ”come his way” almost immediately after leaving the Academy. In the spring of 1998 he was awarded a large contract with the Houston Zoo to do the murals for the remodeled Bird House. Upon the successful completion of this huge task, Gordon returned to painting as a muralist and studio artist. The following year he would paint the Koala Exhibit murals. Ron has a studio in the warehouse district in Houston and works with designers, corporate, and private clients on commissions.
