Library Art Changeout – Monday, September 24, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.
Any member of LHAA who has helped us out with some event is eligible to bring their artwork to display at the Kingwood Public Library!
Anyone who has art currently hanging should come prepared to take your work home.
Any members who have work that you would like to hang on the library wall should bring it in!
Your work should be ready to hang, and you should be prepared to create a label for it with such information as the title of the work, framed dimensions, your name and contact information, and price (although the price will not be shown on the tag).
If you have helped us as a volunteer this season you are eligible to bring samples of your work to be displayed at the library for viewing by (and sale to) the public. Helping to take down the previous art pieces and to hang the new ones counts as volunteering! The entire process should not take more than an hour or so.
Change of Policy Regarding Artwork Sold
Any painting hung in an LHAA-sponsored venue will be subject to a 15% commission if sold within six months of the sales exposure.
