Yoram Gal is the featured artist for the Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival that returns LIVE AND IN-PERSON on April 10-11! Held completely outdoors along the scenic Woodlands Waterway and in Town Green Park, this colorful gallery features the original art of nearly 200 juried fine artists in mediums including painting, drawing, clay, metal and wood works; jewelry, leather and fiber; mixed media, and photography. A weekend pass is now $17 online, with ticket prices increasing to $20 at the gate. Children 12 and under are admitted free. 

“We are so thrilled to be able to return to a live format this year, with all CDC, state and county COVID safety measures in place,” said Jenny Wright, Executive Director of The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC). ”This family-oriented event features activities for all ages from Artopoly hands-on arts activities hosted by The Woodlands Children’s Museum and the Early Inspiration Gallery where kids can start their art collection for $5, to our Seniors Art Rock Painting Community Art Project.”
