A Message from the Executive Director

"I am ecstatic to be The Woodlands Arts Council's  (TWAC) very first Executive Director and plan to use my experience in leading and structuring businesses and organizations for success to ensure we achieve our mission.

We have a team of enthusiastic, dedicated artists and professionals who will further strengthen our nationally ranked Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, our education and outreach programs, and our role in the enrichment of the public and cultural arts within The Woodlands and beyond.

Volunteer Spotlight 

This month our Volunteer Spotlight is on Tricia Howard. A former gallery director in Steamboat Springs, CO, Tricia moved to the Woodlands in 2013. She is an admirer of all kinds of art, and loves the many opportunities available to us here in the Woodlands and Conroe areas. Tricia was instrumental this past month with the inauguration of our newest activity, The Wine and Bench Cruise. 
Support Our Mission 

Love what we do? Consider supporting one of our education and outreach programs through a small monthly donation. The more supporters we have, the bigger impact we can all make. Together.

Because Art Matters!

Join the flock.
