December 12th - General Meeting and Christmas Party


Our General Meeting and Christmas Party is coming up next Monday, December 12 at 7:00 PM at the Shanley House. Please bring any supplies that you don't want (frames, paints, brushes, paper, canvases, etc) so that we can put it in our auction. The proceeds from this auction will go to the Shanley House.

We would also like you to bring a painting or two for our "Artist of the Month" drawing. You will be able to show your painting in a local bank for one month and then you will also have an article with a picture of your painting in the local newspaper. It's a good way to help promote you and your artwork.

Diane Coble is December Featured Artist at Granbury Visitor's Center

Click to Enlarge


The vibrant colors, unique flow and beautiful blending that working in ink provides makes this medium Diane’s favorite. Before ever putting ink to canvas, she produced her own silk clothing line. Each piece personally designed using silk dyes.  That experience led her to use her ink talents for the creation of fine art pieces. Diane is also known for her “doodling” work and workshops. Stop by the Visitor’s Bureau to see her work for yourself.

Monday, Nov 14th - LGAA Meeting - Jeanette Alexander to speak

LGAA meeting tonight (Monday, November 14th) Anyone with an interest in art is invited to attend. 7pm at Shanley House Gallery.

Artist Jeanette Alexander to speak:
Not every piece of art works immediately; this is especially true when trying new techniques or mediums, processes in a workshop. However, a most rewarding activity is to reach into creative thought and employ failures, old prints, scissors, photos, collage materials, lace, string (you get the idea) into a new creation, unique to you. This is what I hope to demo at the next LGAA meeting. Shall we call it " trash to treasure"?
