January Demo Artist: Marcela Lugones Daneri – Mixed Media

Marcela Lugones Daneri is a mixed media artist currently living in Houston, Texas. She was born in Argentina but has spent most of her life living and traveling the world including Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, as well as North and South America. It is this global culture which gives rich layers to her life as well as her art.

Her approach is intuitive, layering collage, acrylics, inks, pastels and charcoal to convey her ideas in visual form. As an accomplished photographer she uses her own photographs for inspiration. Marcela’s relationship with color is deep and personal and brings a vibrant life to each piece

Library Art Hanging

Our next art changeout at the Kingwood Public Library will be on Friday, February 24, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. As always, any paid member who has helped out in some way (helping with the art hanging counts) is eligible to bring some pieces of artwork for display in the library. Be sure your art is ready to hang, with picture wire.

The library is a great place for the public to see your work. We do need to change the wall from time to time to keep it looking fresh and interesting. We are planning to switch the art in the library every 3 months or so. If you have business cards, bring a few with you so the prospective buyers can get in touch.

Future Art Displays

Our chair in charge of public art displays, Jeran Walker, would like to update the folder of artwork by current members so that she can more easily arrange for our creations to be shown at other locations. To that end, she would appreciate it if any interested members would put together a page containing a short artist bio and a few examples of some of your best work. Print out the sheet and bring it to a meeting for Jeran. If you can’t print your sheet in color, just email it to amymcleod.conroy@gmail.com.

Creative Challenge

Were you having such a great holiday season that you didn’t have time to work on the Creative Challenge? Good news! The Creative Challenge has been moved back a bit – to the February General Meeting. Remember, there is a $25 prize for the winner. The theme of this Creative Challenge is Opposites.

Spring 2023 Art Show and Competition

Our Spring Art Show will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at the Kingwood Community Center. Details will be posted as we get nearer to the event.
