November 2021 General Meeting and Art Show Results

Our November Zoom Meeting Will Be Tuesday, November 16, 2021

All paid LHAA members, plus art show entrants, will be invited to attend. This meeting will be your opportunity to find out the winners of our Fall Art Show and Competition. The judge will conduct a Zoom walkthrough, giving critiques of the artwork and explaining her decisions. These critiques are valuable both to the artist and to others watching, as a way of improving our work. Meet and Greet will start at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
After the meeting, show results will be available to all through links we will send out. Judge’s comments on each piece will be included. And feel free to add your own comments!
Also: Check out the new button at the top of our website. The results and images of last spring’s show will be visible there!

Our Judge, Shirley Leago

.

Shirley was born in Wilson, Oklahoma but grew up in Houston, Texas.  She majored in fine arts and studied graphic design and painting at the University of Houston.  Dick Turner, the theorist, Loren Adams, the seascapes, Bob Wgant, the western artist master, and Lajos Markos, the western art and portrait master, have all had an influence on Shirley’s unique style that is like no other artist’s.  Shirley also enjoys painting other subject matter, such as portraits and still life, but her main interest rests with animals in their natural habitat.

One of Shirley’s passions has been teaching fine art painting for over 50 years.  She has taught painting theory and technique at Houston area studios for 30 years, and for the last 25 years, she has continued to teach at Texas Art Supply Baybrook in the Houston Bay Area.  She claims that an artist never quits learning, and by helping students, she continues to grow professionally with every problem that has to be solved in the classes.  Shirley teaches theory through various styles and media so that the student artists can choose how to present their work according to each one’s own personal style and vision.

Shirley has been an Advisor and Steering Judge for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Scholarship Program for 39 years.  Her painting “Lady’s Choice” was chosen for the cover of School Art Awards Presentation Program at the competition.  She has judged many local art shows and has performed many demonstrations for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for the teachers in the surrounding School districts involved in the Rodeo School art Scholarship program and workshops for art associations and clubs.  Shirley has been a judge for the Kingwood Art Show, the national competition for the National Society of Artists, Conroe Art League Show, Houston Arts Society, and the Pearland Art Show.  Shirley judged the Woodlands Art League November 5, 2016.  She judged the Brazosport Art League in Lake Jackson, Texas August 7th, 2017 and gave critique on August 18th, 2017.

Art Display at Skero’s

On October 27, several of our artists brought their artwork to display at Skero’s Furniture. We have quite a nice display there, and more than one artist has sold work that was hanging here! It’s a wonderful venue for the public to see your work. The next changeout of art will be either in December or early January of 2022. Any paid member is welcome to display artwork.
We will continue to let you know whenever there is an opportunity to show your artwork to the public. Visibility generates sales and helps our organization!
