STAR HARBOR-Star Harbor Watercolor Society is hosting its seventh annual "For the Love of Art" show and sale from 1 - 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at the Star Harbor City Hall building.

Event admission is free and will feature more than 100 pieces of art. Guests will have an opportunity to meet the artists, and enjoy delicious refreshments.

From a chance discussion among a few friends about the love of watercolors and the lessons two ladies had taken, the Star Harbor Watercolor Society grew from six to almost 30 members. The society was founded in 2005 to improve the painting skills of its members and to stimulate public interest in watercolor art through exhibits.

The society includes artists from other communities and states. Members have entered the Henderson County Art show held each April in Athens, and have won ribbons each year including Best of Show five times.

The Dallas-Fort Worth art scene has discovered the talent of this group through their winning entries in the State Fair of Texas in Dallas from 2007-2012 (including multiple blue ribbons and a Best of Show), and artwork chosen in juried competitions in Tyler, Fort Worth, Piano, Richardson, and Irving.

From its inception, the society has sponsored watercolor workshops presented by acclaimed local and national artists.

Star Harbor is just north of Malakoff. Turn onto FM 3062 at the Malakoff Fire Station on Hwy 198, continue past the Malakoff High School 1.4 miles into Star Harbor, go left at the "Y." The City Hall building at 99 Sunset Blvd. is on the right at the golf course.
