For All Our Members:

Representatives of the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center in downtown Humble have invited our group to display our art at their center!  We will be meeting at the Center at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 11 for a tour of the facility.  We will get to see where our art will be hanging.  We will also find our then on what day they would like us to bring in our art pieces.

We want all our members to be involved in this event!  If you have artwork that you would like to display at the center, come join us for the tour!

Charles Bender Performing Arts Center

Humble, TX  77338

We do need to know exactly how many people will be hanging their art at the Center!   Please send a message to our coordinator, Lynda Feierabend at (lynda226@aol.com) if you are interested.

In case you are not familiar with it, the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center used to be the Charles Bender High School.  It was remodeled in 2014, and now, among other things, hosts a monthly concert series for the entire family.  So we will have a lot of viewers for our work, and the potential to make more sales!

March Demo Artist:  Boz Droca  –  Composition

Boz Droca is a representational artist working in the tradition of the great naturalist masters of the 19th century. By painting directly from nature Boz is trying to capture a realistic sense of light and space, but for him it is very important to evoke poetry in his artwork.

His father was a people artist and great draughtsman, so Boz has been drawing and painting from an early age. He knew that he would be an artist at the age of 5, when he saw beautiful icons and paintings in local 600 year-old church.  After completing his education at the University of Sarajevo, Boz pursued a career as an illustrator and portrait artist. He exhibited his work across Europe (Italy, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, France and Turkey).

Over the years of his career Boz has combined innate creativity, academic training and the influence of great artists from his Balkan roots (M.Corovic, M.Berber, B.Aleksic, M.Popovic), as well as western masters (A.G.Lopez,C.Bravo,R.Kinstler), to shape his own artistic language.

After moving to Houston in 1999, Boz continued to work as a fine artist, but also became part of the Russell Erwin studio for murals and decorative art.  He fell in love with Texas landscapes.  He visited Big Bend and studied with masters Bill Zane and David Caton. The result was two sold out one man exhibitions: “Color of Remembrance “and “From Mediterranean to Texas”.  He exhibited his work in “Gallery Central (Arkansas),”Gallerie Mado Chalvet”, Segovia and Boz Crown gallery (Houston, Texas).

Boz is also known for his unique teaching style based on his script “Power of observation”. He has tutored painting classes and given demonstration to various groups of students. Recently he has taught art at HCAA Houston.  As a member of the Portrait society of America for sixteen years, Boz improved his portrait skills with great American masters Raymond Kinstler and Daniele Greene. Boz’s work has appeared in many magazines and publications in the US and Europe.  Recently one of Boz’s paintings was included in the great art collection of HRH Crown Prince Alexander and HRH Princess Katarina of Serbia.

February Demo Artist:  Holly Hunter Berry – Abstract Expressionist

Representationalist, impressionist, colorist, expressionist are a few of the “ist” terms that have defined her work at various times. She continues to grow and push herself to explore new fresh approaches to communicating her message. Never tired of “pushing paint around” she looks forward to working at the easel every day possible. At this stage in Holly’s career she enjoys giving back to the community by teaching her weekly classes and periodic workshops. She tries to teach in a way as to take the mystery out of the painting process. Intuition is important but a strong foundation is important as well and that is her focus. Intuition is personal and can’t be taught…that is the voice of the artist! In addition to giving demonstrations for art groups she has also been asked to be a judge at various art shows.

Holly’s paintings have been exhibited in both solo and group shows in the United States, Central America and Europe for almost 40 years.

There are private collectors in the United States, Central America and Europe. She has been represented by galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona  and in several locations in Texas. Corporate commissions include the Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona and the Scottsdale Healthcare System, Shea Campus, Woman’s Health Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Article in the Tribune

nunnery1

Artists,

An article about Lake Houston Area Artists has been published in the most recent issue of The Tribune!  Below are the instructions to access the piece:
Go to www.ourtribune.com.  In the upper right hand corner you will see a google search.  Type in Lake Houston Area Artist and it will take you to another link.  About half way down the page you will find the article headline, click on it and page 4C will come up.  There is a picture of Dr. Nunnery and her staff.  The article is just great.  We would love to hear from you about it.  Thanks.
Many thanks to all the artists who contributed to this display!  Dr. Nunnery and her staff are delighted with the decor, and displays like this are a great way to get your artwork seen by members of the public.  We expect to be updating the art from time to time, switching out some pieces and hanging new ones.  So watch this space for your next opportunity to show off your great art!

Reminder – Library Art Changeout

Artists – 

 

We will be changing the art hanging at the Kingwood Public Library on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.  Anyone who already has art there needs to come collect it to make space for other artists – or to replace it with other pieces of your own.

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.
