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.
Our General Meeting for January Will be on Tuesday, January 21, 2020
23320 Hwy 59N
6:30pm Meet & Greet
7:00pm Meeting & Demo
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.
Reminder – Our Spring Art Show and Competition Will Be on Saturday, April 25, 2020
Details about registration to follow. Stay tuned for further details.
We will again be allowing artists to bring in their work for display only to our Gallery, next to the art show entries. You can submit work to the gallery in addition to your art show entries, or instead.
Just a quick reminder here that, instead of a December general meeting, members are invited to gather at Union Kitchen on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 12:00 noon, for our annual Scholarship Luncheon.
All members are welcome. Any extra guests can dine in the main restaurant.
Hope to see you there!
The General Meeting for November will be Tuesday, November 19, 2019

6:30pm Meet & Greet
7:00pm Meeting & Demo
Demo Artist: Fran Ellisor – Oils
Fran Ellisor’s classic and eloquent style of painting is sure to capture your heart. Her paintings have won numerous awards in national as well as regional shows. Her paintings are highly collected. She is represented in corporate and private collections in the U. S. and abroad. Fran paints on location outdoors or from life about half of the time.
Fran Ellisor has been painting the landscape professionally for over twenty years. She spends much of her time painting outdoors on location and working from life. Her style is a painterly realism; her strokes are confident yet spontaneous; her colors are clean and fresh. She is an accomplished figure and portrait painter and is known for her intimate, elegant still lifes.
The subjects of Fran’s paintings come from her life and surroundings. She has carried her paintbox from Alaska to Mexico and Guatemala, across the United States and to Spain, France, Italy and Greece. She includes these areas from around the world in her works.
It’s not unusual to find this Impressionist painter along one of Texas backroads or creeks, painting what she sees, expressing what she loves. The Texas landscape plays an important role in her paintings including the Hill Country,desert mountains of West Texas, and from the piney woods of East Texas to the lush tropical seaside of the Gulf Coastal areas. You’ll likely see her painting anywhere she finds beauty and interesting subjects.
Our Spring Art Show and Competition Will Be Saturday, April 25, 2020

Judge: Fran Ellisor

Art Exhibition Opportunity
On Saturday, November 23, 2019, LHAA will be exhibiting paintings at the Kingwood Garden Center. Participating artists are invited to bring in two paintings each, plus a “spare” to show and offer for sale. The show will be from 11:00 am. to 2:00 pm, and exhibiting artists are urged to stay for the entire three hours to make sales and to be responsible for their art. A 25% commission will be charged on each sale.
Volunteers from previous shows have priority at the exhibition, but if you would like to hang your art here, check with Lynda Feierabend, email@example.com to see if there are still openings. Or speak to Lynda at our upcoming meeting.
December Scholarship Luncheon
Instead of a regular meeting in December we will be having a luncheon at a local restaurant in order to present our annual art scholarship check to our chosen Lone Star College art student. The luncheon will be on December 9, 10, or 11, depending on the chosen restaurant. If you have an interest in attending, please let us know at the upcoming meeting so that we can finalize our plans.
In December of 2019 we will also be hanging our art at the office of a local doctor. Specific date to be determined later. If you are interested in this display opportunity, contact Lynda Feierabend, either by email (see above) or at the meeting.
We are also planning an exhibition of art at St. Luke’s Methodist Church in August of 2020. Contact Vanita Doyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.

Thanks to everyone who participated in and/or attended our fall show last Saturday. Hopefully our new and returning participants all had a pleasurable experience. Special thanks to all who helped with the show in any way such as with moving panels, show set up, take down, art work check in, hospitality, etc. Also special thanks to our judge, Golda Rader, who really took the time to explain her decision process on the ribbon winners.
Congratulations to our best of show winner, Linney Hamilton, with her beautiful mixed media painting titled “Not this Pig!”. Congratulations to all of our other ribbon winners as well. All best of show, first place, second place, third place and first honorable mention winners are eligible to advance to the LSAG regional competition that will be held this summer in Conroe.
The database has been updated with the judging results. LSAG does not track regular honorable mentions; so, if you received a green ribbon, it will not be reflected in the database.
If you missed the fall show, we just got the dates for our spring show. It will be held Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Kingwood Community Center. We hope that you will be able to participate!
