The Board of Directors (the Board) for Katy Area Artists has made the decision to temporarily suspend operations for the calendar year 2017. KAA is organized and run by volunteer officers and members. KAA's mission is to develop artistic talent through mentoring and educational programs, seek exhibition venues, and provide a healing community to promote awareness of the visual arts among adults in the community. We have had some success in our mission but have experienced a significant tapering off of working members who are willing and/or able to commit to leadership roles.
Over the next 12 months, January 1 through December 31, 2017, the Board will take on an assessment of the present operations, programs, membership engagement, and community interest with the objective of seeking to refresh and refocus on all levels.
As we take on the above challenge, we encourage you to stay active in the arts community. KAA membership dues payments are typically collected in January. For the calendar year 2017, dues are not being collected. Lone Star Arts Guild have a number of member clubs in nearby communities in which you may seek membership to stay involved in arts endeavors over the next year: Art League Fort Bend; Houston Art Society; Imperial Art Alliance; and Tomball Art League to name a few.
As updates become available throughout the year, we will share here on the website or through our social media platform on Facebook.
