As an artist from Thailand, I(Apinya) was really pleased to be a part of the Songkran festival at the temple and so thankful to have a teamwork experience with good friends, Zachary and Ian. Best of all, it was nice celebrating Songkran with our art, the art of giving back from volunteerism. Thank you Buddhananachat Temple of Austin for having us.
On the 4th Friday of March we painted rocks at the Gallery Downtown and now the rocks are hiding around Navasota for you to seek! If you found an Art Rock, please take a picture of you with the Art Rock and post it on the “Rocking Navasota with Art” Facebook group page. You can keep the rock and create another art rock for someone else to find, or you can hide the rock by releasing it into the wilds of downtown Navasota for another hunter to find. Let’s rock Navasota and have fun with art!
The Downtown Bryan Street & Art Fair took place on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 10am-6pm on West. 26th Street between Main St. and Parker Ave. in conjunction with Texas A&M’s Family Weekend. The event featured artists and artisans from across the region selling their handmade creations. There were live music, hands on art demonstrations and street performers for entertainment. Admission was free.
We were at the Arts Council’s booth, presenting our artworks to the public. I (Apinya) brought some supplies to set up a mini studio space to create works at the event. I had combined paper quilling with watercolor for new pieces of artworks celebrating beautiful Spring in Texas. Zachary had done some quick drawings along with his creative mixed media paintings, and Ian had a unique open-air photography exhibition. It had been a long day, but it was really nice to meet and greet people with our arts. We were so happy we made some sales during the event, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for the support from lovely people and this ideal opportunity! It totally made our day! 🙂
Thank you The City of Navasota and The Arts Council of Brazos Valley for having me as an artist in residence at a Horlock House.
I am so excited to be here at a new studio in the beautiful history house. I bring some of my artworks I have done in San Francisco to exhibit at the Horlock Gallery. Come check out my paper sculptures and meet me at the Horlock House, 1215 E Washington Ave.
