Star Harbor Watercolor Society For the Love of Art show and sale Feb. 18


Nestled in the lakeside community of Star Harbor, artistic creativity is flourishing
through the efforts of the Star Harbor Watercolor Society. This organization numbering
almost thirty members was founded in 2005 to improve the painting skills of its members
and to stimulate public interest in watercolor art through exhibits. Society members
have entered the annual Henderson County Art Show held each April in Athens and have
won ribbons including Best of Show for their work each year. The art scene in the DallasFt.
Worth area has become familiar with this group of artists through their winning
entries in the State Fair of Texas in Dallas 2007-2017-many blue ribbons and a Best of
Show-as well asjuried pieces in multiple prestigious art shows. Examples of members’
artwork can be viewed at the society’s website www.starharborws.org.

SWS January Meeting features a Throw Down Match with Signature Artists


Please join us for our SWS Meeting: 
Tuesday, January 10 
7:00-9:00 PM 
United Methodist Church 
Corner of NW Hwy & Inwood


The January meeting of SWS is usually an interesting one. Rarely is a visiting demo artist  painting for the gathering, but usually something out of the ordinary is planned. This January 12, 2017 we are presenting the third version of the “SWS THROW DOWN and PAINT AROUND “. Four Signature member artists will prepare and train for the event. Each will sketch the “bones” of his or her painting on a full sheet of 300# Arches cold pressed paper. Each artist will paint at his or her painting for 10 minutes and then shift to the next until all have painted on each painting. The original artist of each painting will then have 15 minutes to finish it. The four artists will each sign each of the four paintings. An auction of the paintings will follow. Bring your checkbook. This is a great chance to own some very unique art. As usual, the Painting of the Month Event will be up for voting while the artists are working and the awards will be made immediately following the final whistle ending the Throw Down The meeting will start promptly at 7 PM. Who are the four artists? Come to the meeting and find out!
