Dear WAS-H Friends

We are at the beginning of a certain-to-be hot Houston summer, so I am sure we will all be looking for cool indoor opportunities. Guess what? There are lots of cool things to do at WAS-H!

We have our June Gallery Show Awards reception on Sunday, June 5th at 3pm. Stop by to enjoy an exhibit of “Food for Thought.” The Student and Teacher Show is planned for July, the prospectus is on the website. Our Gallery Directors, Cissy Geigerman and Katie Steck, are finalizing details for the August prospectus, the theme will be “Skies.” As well, they are busy making plans for the upcoming year, and will have any specific monthly themes posted on the website so that you can plan to paint for the shows you want to enter.

Additional summer classes are now open for registration - members can register now, while nonmember registration begins on June 8th. Hurry to reserve your place in the class of your choice, as we expect the summer classes to be popular. The Senior Group, Open Studio and Model Lab continue through the summer. In fact, Model Lab is trying out a few evening spots to see if that is something we want to add in the future. For all these events, check the website at for details.

If you haven’t checked out our Member Sales Gallery, please do! I think it is a great place to buy original art from local artists. Right now, it is Houston’s best kept secret – let everyone you know about it, so it isn’t a secret anymore. If you would like to sell your work in the gallery, please contact our Artist Liaison, Laura Mossman at

Please renew your membership today, if you haven’t already done so. Membership dues are so important to funding WAS-H operations. You can go to the website to renew. If you would rather pay by phone or in person, contact Laura Mossman, our Artist Liaison. The office is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 3pm, and the number is 713-942-9966.

I look forward to seeing you soon at WAS-H! hope you find time to paint and enjoy art activities this summer.

Warm Regards,

Karen Houston Stopnicki
