We will be holding a Zoom meeting for our paid members on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. All artists who were paid members for the 2019/2020 season will receive an invitation by email. In that invitation will be a link you can click at the appropriate time and day to join the meeting.

For this meeting, everyone but the presenter and our Prez, Debra Jones, will be muted except during the designated time for questions and answers.
Artist Demo – Holly Hunter Berry – Animal Portraits
Representationalist, impressionist, colorist, expressionist are a few of the “ist” terms that have defined her work at various times. She continues to grow and push herself to explore new fresh approaches to communicating her message. Never tired of “pushing paint around” she looks forward to working at the easel every day possible. At this stage in Holly’s career she enjoys giving back to the community by teaching her weekly classes and periodic workshops. She tries to teach in a way as to take the mystery out of the painting process. Intuition is important but a strong foundation is important as well and that is her focus. Intuition is personal and can’t be taught…that is the voice of the artist! In addition to giving demonstrations for art groups she has also been asked to be a judge at various art shows.
Anyone Not Familiar With Zoom?
We will invite anyone not yet familiar with Zoom to attend our board meeting on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. Send us a message on the “Contact Us” form and you will be added to the invitation.

Fall 2020 Art Show and Competition
Our Fall Art Show and Competition will be a virtual one this year. It is scheduled for late October. Details to follow.
After much discussion and careful consideration, we have decided that it will be in the best interests of our members to cancel this month’s meeting. Most of us are either in the at-risk group or know someone close to us who is in that group.
Stay home and create more beautiful art!

Demo Artist for February – Linda Dellandre, Landscapes
Landscapes are my primary form of expression, whether oil or pastel, but plein air is always preferred. I am awed by the beauty of the land and I try to communicate to the art viewers, a sense of the places I paint, the certain lights of day, or simple glimpses from the side of the road.
I left Sedona in 2011 and have found so much beauty in the Hill Country and the rolling ranges of southeastern Texas. In the plein air spirit, I’ve found beautiful scenes and painted them from the back of my van, while biking, and from my kayak on a lovely body of water.
Happy New Year to All!
Art Changeout at Kingwood Public Library
We will be changing the art hanging at Kingwood Public Library on Monday, January 27, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.
If you have art hanging at the library, be prepared to take it home with you. If you have helped us as a volunteer during the season you may bring some new pieces to hang. Remember, your art must be ready to hang, with picture wire – NOT the toothed hangers. Our art display occupies one whole wall on the second floor of the library, and we rotate the pieces every 3-4 months. Anyone interested in buying the art they see can contact the artist using the information on the label each of us fills out when we hang our work.

Demo Artist for January is Sylvia Trybek – Still Life
Sylvia Trybek is an award-winning artist specializing in representational painting including still lifes, landscapes, and figurative works. Working alla prima from life models and subjects is her preferred form of self-expression. She composes her still life arrangements using props she is emotionally attached to or involved with in her daily activities.
She paints the essence of what she feels and sees. Strong composition, lively colors, and emphasis on solid drawing form a foundation of her painting, teaching style and philosophy. As an artist and a teacher, Trybek believes in strict adherence to the highest standards of quality, excellence, and integrity.
Trybek received Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Houston, Texas. Her teachers include William Anzalone, David Leffel, Howard Terpning, and Master Lim Eow.
