Art Opportunities In Our Area

Recently Received Letter from the Northwest Art League

Hello there😊

I am the secretary and newsletter representative for Northwest Art League (NWAL).

We have continued to hold our monthly meetings online via Zoom, every third Saturday of the month. We thought that since our meetings are virtual, this would be a perfect time for members of other leagues to join in with us. No traveling involved, yay! We would really appreciate it if you would share this information to your art group.

Here is what is happening in February and March:

  • We have an art DVD showing via Zoom, every Saturday morning, at 09:30 a.m., except when we have our meeting or show. The DVD showing for tomorrow (Saturday, 2/6), will be Fast and Loose with Frank Francese (Watercolor).
  • Our next meeting will be on February 20, at 10:00 a.m. Following the meeting, we will have a demo artist. This month, the demo artist will be Joan Fullerton, teaching abstract art and concentrating on introspection.
  • In March (20th), we will have our spring art show, which will also be virtual. Art entries will be accepted as a photograph and the art will be registered online. There will be a Zoom meeting on the day of the show to announce the winners and listen to the judge’s critique. Last year, we held the fall art show virtually and it was a great success.

For those wishing to attend, please email carolhoyland@comcast.net and I will forward the link.

If you agree, I will send a reminder email each month, a week or so before the meeting, that you can forward to your group.

Lastly, if you have any news or information that you would like to share with NWAL, I will happily forward it to our members.

Thank you so much!

Happy painting, stay safe.

Charles Bender Performing Arts Center

For All Artists Who Are Planning to Display Their Art at the Bender Center:

Set-up for the display is Monday, June 10, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
The pre-showtime hours during which we need to be there are:

Friday, June 14 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 7 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Friday, July 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Takedown is tentatively scheduled for Monday, July 15 at 10:30 a.m.

Our presence is requested at the pre-show so that we can discuss our art with the public.  This will afford us an excellent opportunity to market our artwork.  If you have unavoidable previous plans that prevent your coming to one of the events, please make sure that someone is there who can answer questions about your work.

Participants should plan on bringing 3-4 art pieces.  That number may need to be adjusted during hanging on June 10, depending on how many total works are there.  There is no harm in having one or two extra artworks on hand in case extra space is available.

We are also encouraged to invite friends and family members to attend one or more of the shows at the Center.  These are musical programs intended to provide an enjoyable evening for the whole family.  You can find the schedule or performances on their website.

The Bender Performing Arts Center is located at:

611 Higgins Street
Humble, TX  77338

As a reminder, to be eligible to hang your art you must be a paid member and have helped us in some way during this season.

If you mean to hang your art here with us, please respond with a phone number at which I can reach you.

Thanks,
Joel Salmons

Important Information

To all Members Who Are Planning to Take Thursday’s Tour

Please DO NOT bring your art to the tour of the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 11!  This tour is meant to give us a look at the place where our art will be hanging.  Someone else’s art is there now.  We can better visualize this way how our own paintings will look.  We will find out later when we can bring pictures for display.

To Everyone Who Has Art on Display at Dr. Nunnery’s Office

Dr. Nunnery is moving to a new location, so we need to remove all our art from there for the time being.  Thursday, April 18 at 1:45 p.m. is the day for you to come in to get your paintings.  Dr. Nunnery will let us know if we can bring our pieces back, sometime in June.  Please complete your removal before 4:00 p.m. on that day.

An Amazing New Development

The newly re-opened Lake Houston YMCA has offered us an incredible opportunity!  Starting in May, LHAA will be teaching art classes for children at the Y!  Our own Joel Salmons, who has taught with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., has complete lesson plans for teaching different age groups of children.  The classes will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (one group on each day) for about an hour each.  We need some volunteers to help with the teaching.  Any amount of time on any of the three days is appreciated.  The lesson plans are great, and the classes should be a lot of fun.  For further information, contact Joel Salmons at:

For All Our Members:

Representatives of the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center in downtown Humble have invited our group to display our art at their center!  We will be meeting at the Center at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 11 for a tour of the facility.  We will get to see where our art will be hanging.  We will also find our then on what day they would like us to bring in our art pieces.

We want all our members to be involved in this event!  If you have artwork that you would like to display at the center, come join us for the tour!

Charles Bender Performing Arts Center
611 Higgins St.
Humble, TX  77338

We do need to know exactly how many people will be hanging their art at the Center!   Please send a message to our coordinator, Lynda Feierabend at (lynda226@aol.com) if you are interested.

In case you are not familiar with it, the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center used to be the Charles Bender High School.  It was remodeled in 2014, and now, among other things, hosts a monthly concert series for the entire family.  So we will have a lot of viewers for our work, and the potential to make more sales!

Our New Art Display

LHAA Artists

Our art is now on display at the office of Dr. Nunnery at Kingwood Medical Center.  The doctor and her staff were very excited and helpful as we arranged pieces of artwork in the waiting area and hallways of her office.  There is already interest in purchasing some of our paintings!

The best news is that there is still room for at least 25 more works of art in the office!  We have an appointment to revisit the display on January 3, 2019 with more art.  So if you missed the opportunity to hang your work here, you will have another chance!  Stay tuned for further details about this event!
