Let's Celebrate Local Artists!

It's just about time to once again celebrate local Katy artists at the Maud Marks Library!  We have spent the past week collecting various pieces of artwork from artists all across the area.  On Monday we will be installing the artwork in time for us to open after Easter.  We invite you to come and see the creativity and artistry of the Katy area all month long.

Then, on Saturday, April 7 at 6 PM, we will have our official opening reception.  The public is invited to come view the artwork and meet the various artists from Katy displaying their work.  Refreshments will be invited and all are welcome to join us for this day.  We hope to see you then!
