April Demo Artist Will Be Our Own President, Debra Jones – Pastels

Debra studied fine art painting at the Baton Rouge Academy of Fine Arts.  Shortly after, she moved to Washington State where she painted and taught for 23 years.  She taught art at elementary and middle school levels for 10 years and opened her own art school  where she taught privately for another 15 years before retiring and returning to Texas.  These days she mostly focuses on watercolor, pastels, and colored pencils.  She is a firm believer that when it comes to art, we learn by doing and is open to any new experience in painting.  She invites you to adopt her own personal motto – Don’t Be Afraid To Be Bold!

Reminder:  

On Sunday, April 15 we will be changing out the art hanging at the Kingwood Hospital Rehab Unit, Building A.  Community Art Relations Chair Lynda Feierabend will be at the side door of the building at 1:00 p.m. to receive your art and to direct you.

Each artist is limited to two pieces for hanging at this location.  If you already have art there, you may want to change what pieces you have on display or remove anything over your allotted two pieces.

If you have helped LHAA with any event or activity this year you are eligible to hang your art with us.  Helping us with the art change-out on Sunday counts!

Demo Artist for March:  Richard Hall, Pen & Ink

Richard S. Hall studied architecture at Texas A&M University, The University of Texas, and at the University of Houston. He received his Baccalaureate in Zoology and Ph.D. in Education from Texas A&M University and his Masters in Medical Art/Biomedical Communications from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He has exhibited in invitational and juried shows from Texas to New York and has numerous awards to his credit. He has also taught graduate and non-credit art and visual design courses and workshops since he was in college. Working largely in watercolor, he also likes working in pen & ink, acrylic, oils, and pastels to depict Southwestern and Gulf Coast scenes and impressions, particularly lighthouses, fishing vessels, barns, windmills, and sporting scenes. “I try to capture memories and dreams in my art. There is so much character along this coast that so many people miss or simply do not see. The old bait camps, fishing boats, back harbors and alleys that keep popping up in my work. My favorite medium is transparent watercolor. I find it most responsive, but it can humble you on occasions.  Richard’s illustrations can be found in many books, articles, films, and exhibits. He has several impressive mural com missions to his credit. In addition, his commissioned portraits continue to win the hearts of his clients. His recent book, “Lighthouses, Lightships, and Beacons of Texas: a comprehensive field guide”, Pintail Publishing, 2013, was an Independent Publishers “IPPY Award” winner for best regional non-fiction.  Richard’s work can be seen by appointment only at his studio: Silos at Sawyer Yards, studio #227, 1502 Sawyer Street, Houston, Texas 77007
