Happening this Weekend | Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017
GENERAL MEETING
DEMO ARTIST | LIZ HILL
10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017

Liz started her serious art training at the Los Angeles Art Center School at the age of 17, studying advertising design and illustration. She later attended the University of Houston for fine art. She feels her commercial training as well as her fine art work prepared her well to pursue whatever her creativity lead her to do. 

She started as many with oil painting, but once she started working with water media she was hooked. The addition of collage only further excited her.
After Liz finishes inspiring you with her Mixed Media demo,
join us that same afternoon at 1 p.m. for a Mixed Media Workshop
 at the 5th Street Gallery in Rosenberg.

Member Exhibits & Shows
Edda Fuchs | September & October
Sugar Land Regional Airport
Edda's paintings are made in the style of Chigirie, which is painting without paint using mostly Japanese paper. It is a unique style, which produces very interesting and beautiful paintings. To appreciate the paintings you actually have to see them in real life. Photos of them do not give you the full appreciation of this style of painting.
Jim Fuchs | September & October
Sugar Land Regional Airport
Jim's exhibit is themed "Houston" and includes paintings of Houston previously on exhibit at the Perimeter Gallery in the Heights.
