A little about ourselves
Conroe Art League is a nonprofit organization of vibrant artists and art lovers. The art league was started in Conroe in 1963 by seven local artists. There are now over 250 members. Art education is a top priority for CAL. Artists teach on-going classes in the gallery in many mediums. There is something for everyone at every level of skill or interest. Every month artists come together to exhibit a new show with “Meet the Artist” receptions. In addition to the Gallery show, the art league holds a spring and fall competition. Also, CAL artists spend time working with the community in numerous outreach programs as well as a volunteering at the Woodlands Waterway Art Festival.

CALL FOR MURAL ARTISTS
A unique opportunity is being offered to area artists to be part of an Indoor Mural Commission for Kroger Stores, including the new one being constructed in Montgomery, Texas. Houston Arts Alliance (HAA), on behalf of The Kroger Company, is seeking local artists interested in creating large-scale indoor murals. While the "Call" is being organized by the Houston Arts Alliance, "priority is being given to artists with a connection to the community in which the store resides." Organizers are hoping that artists use local references to evoke a creative, "uplifting feeling that 1) encourages community and 2) celebrates the spirit of the neighborhood." There is no application fee to enter. Three finalists will be chosen based on their work examples-and their connection to the community in which the store resides; they will receive a $300 stipend for submitting a proposal. One of the finalists will be chosen to create an artwork for each location. Payment to each selected artist is $8,000. The deadline for applying, via a Request for Qualifications (RFQ), is Tuesday, February 27, 2017 at 11:59 pm. For more detailed information visit the "Public Art" section of the Houston Arts Alliance website at www.houstonartsalliance.com. Any questions pertaining to this RFQ should be submitted in writing-via email-no later than 5 p.m. (CST), Feb. 23, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Required subject line: "Kroger Mural RFQ 2017."
