The Art Dash Party presented by The Woodlands Compounding Pharmacy kicked off the weekend on Friday evening at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
Produced by The Woodlands Arts Council, the jury-selected fine arts show, a long-standing springtime tradition for families and locals, featured artwork ranging across a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, clay, metal, woodworks, photography, mixed media, and jewelry, leather, and fiber created by over 200 jury-selected local, national, and international artists. This year’s featured artist was Guilloume, a master of “Bolismo” an emotional style using simple forms, textures, and movements to exhibit human feelings from the most complex to the simplest.
Attendees also enjoyed live music on the Stella Artois Mainstage, wine and dine at food vendors, participated in Hands-On Arts activities hosted by The Woodlands Children’s Museum, and VIP ticket holders took a break at the Terrace Hospitality Lounge. The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival and Art Dash Party benefits The Woodlands Arts Council’s year-round arts programming, student scholarships, and educational outreach programs, Because Art Matters.
