Fall Art Show Recap

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.

NotThisPig
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!
