Today I want to tell everyone how excited I am about the upcoming Tomball Art League Spring Show and Exhibition! Good luck to everyone who is competing this weekend, and all my encouragement to those of you who are hanging your work just for the fun of it. (We have many wonderful motivations for painting, don't we.)
The library is once again inviting all the winners--that's everyone with a ribbon--to hang your winning 2D pieces in our first floor meeting room for the rest of March. We'll be waiting for you next week to bring in your work. It's not necessary to call ahead, but if you want to, our number is 832-559-4200. We're open Monday to Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and we'll take your painting any time you can drop it by.
While you're here, you might step up to the second floor where Milam Schverak has his fabulous papier-maché figures and some watercolors on display at the top of the stairs. Hazel, Willow, Penelope, Arthur, and Ichabod are gathering a lot of amazed attention.
We have just ordered a lovely frame to hang on the door of the meeting room, in which we will post the name of the person or group exhibiting that month. We've been feeling the lack of this for some time now and have just found an appealing solution. I hope you'll like it.
The image I've selected for this blog is Elsie Vera's Red Peppers, a winner in last year's spring show that we had the joy to look at here afterwards.
