CONROE, Texas - The Conroe Art League’s 2016 Invitational Show drew a huge crowd and rave reviews for the 224 entries, 51 of them juried, at the Saturday, February 6, reception at the Madeley Building in historic downtown Conroe. Over 150 artists and art patrons attended the event to view art submitted from around the nation.
Francesca Fuchs, head of the painting department of the Glassell School of Art in Houston, juried in the 51 exceptional pieces on display with the other 173 comprised of all media, providing one of the most eclectic exhibits hosted by the Conroe Art League to date.

Art on display came from coast to coast, and as far north as Chicago. The exhibit is a ‘must see,’ and will be in the gallery through February 27. Call 936-756-9572 for gallery hours. See Photo Gallery for winners.
