Lone Star Art Guild Convention and Show: A regional Art Show and Sale in your back yard!

Please consider adding to your Saturday plans a visit to the Lone Star Art Guild’s 53rd Annual Convention and Art Exhibition at the new Klein Multipurpose Center on FM 2920. The Lone Star Art Guild is the umbrella group for 17 independent art leagues within a 200-mile radius of Houston, including the Tomball Art League. At this convention the winning works from the member art leagues’ art shows are judged against each other. So all the work you will see will be the best of each club. You’ll see paintings, drawings, mixed media pieces, photographs, and digital art; sculpture and studio fine crafts.
The convention itself is happening Friday and Saturday; the Pubic Art Exhibition and Sale is from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. For further information visit their website.

Northwest Art League group exhibiting in Room L-129

Within a 200-mile radius of Houston there are 18 independent art leagues under an umbrella fine arts organization called the Lone Star Art Guild. The Tomball Art League serves our immediate area and its next-door neighbor to the south is the Northwest Art League. This month we are delighted to host the artworks of a group of Northwest Art League members in our meeting room. Carmen Zorba, Claire Payne, Jerry Sue Greenhill, and Anh Lam have braved the traffic along Highway 249 to come north and hang a variety of acrylic and watercolor pieces. Do come by and enjoy their work.

Sonia Rodriguez: Prints Writ Large

As we approach our tenth anniversary we’re delighted to feature the artwork of one of our own staff members, Circulation Assistant Sonia Rodríguez. In the previous five years Sonia has taught elementary school art for the Klein district. While at the Rhode Island School of Design, Sonia experienced working in a variety of media. Included in her display are a series of woodblock prints,etchings, and paintings depicting both human and animal nature.          

Most people who create woodblock prints print them in a hand operated press. The print you see in the image at left was created under a steam roller! Sonia thinks outside the box and is not afraid to experiment.

She currently continues her practice in an independent studio in Spring.

As the world witnessed last week’s events of attacks being triggered by cartoon,

it also witnessed the power that images can carry.
