January 2017 Artist of the Month

LIsa Hollins

A self-representing artist and certified abstract art facilitator offering creative art workshops, unique art parties and original art work online, at local venues, auctions, community and charity events. Dedicated to painting for joy, relaxation and personal artistic growth. Enjoys working with teens, families, adults, elderly and special needs. A passion for sharing the benefits of creative expression with those who enjoy art and are open to exploring life’s daily challenges and memorable events through abstract art processes with paint and color. A contemporary fauvist devoted to modern abstract expression. Her fearless approach to creating visual art is spontaneous, lushly textured and instinctive; resulting in striking multilayered works reticent of light, detail, chaos and experience. Works in all mediums; most on canvas. Pieces expose extreme color, expressive movement, raw contrast and emotional energy. Simple and complex perspectives emerge and fall through repeated destruction and reiteration. An artist who loves the stories an abstract painting can tell. theartlocker.com

Presidents Message

Happy New Year!
As I step into the position of President of our group of artists and makers, I am a little daunted by the shoes I have to fill. I want to extend my personal thanks and admiration to Sharon Bibbee for her three years as President of the Creative Arts Society. She has worked tirelessly for the organization and CAS has benefitted greatly from her vision and expertise. We hope as Past President she finds some time to pursue her art. (Of course we will continue to keep her busy too.)

I am so looking forward to 2017. We installed our new exhibit at the Riverbend Inspirational Gallery this week and it is wonderful as always. Pflugerville Public Library will be installed at the end of January and we have a couple great exhibits coming up in March: Bass Concert Hall and Unitarian Church.

Let’s make it a creative and kind year.
Leslie Kell, President
