Encaustic Demonstration with Taylor Clendennen: Join us on Saturday, September 13 from 10am-noon at Katy Art & Frame for an encaustic art demonstration. Taylor Clendennen is a Houston-based artist and teacher. The word ‘encaustic’ comes from the Greek word enkaiein, meaning to burn in, referring to the process of fusing the paint. In this ancient technique, wax colors are fixed with heat, producing a process in which colors are burned in or fused onto an absorbent surface. Visit Taylor's website to see some of the works that are created in this method, http://www.taylorblaineart.com/home.html, and don't forget to put this on your calendar!
Katy Area Artists' Board of Directors have set into motion the plans for an active fiscal year covering 2014-2015. A sneak peek into what's in the works includes a continuation of the popular ArtShare events initiated during early 2014 and hosted at Katy Contemporary Arts Museum (KCAM) located in downtown Katy. ArtShare is an engaging opportunity for artists to share current work and receive constructive critiques from fellow artists as well as KCAM's art curator, Ana Roman.
KAA is also hosting an inaugural fall fine art charity event and exhibition, Black & White Classic. Art lovers and aficionados are invited to don attire in the appropriate chromatic theme and enjoy an evening of visual, musical, and culinary entertainment in support of Katy's arts community. KAA is anticipating building this event into its primary fundraiser of the year.
The start of 2015 will lead into The Winter Show, KAA's Lone Star Art Guild open show and exhibition. Most shows operated under LSAG guidelines are single day events but not this one. KAA's partnership with Katy Contemporary Arts Museum features a week-long exhibit of award winning art. This exhibit featuring an Artist Reception provides greater exposure for artists and more access for art buyers to see and purchase art from the show.
KAA is also maintaining its commitment to develop and mentor artists through art demonstrations, presentations, and workshops. The fiscal year will include an encaustic demonstration, a photography portfolio review, as well as other art medium presentations.
