‘Emerging Artists Take Centerstage at The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, Creating New Art Stars’

The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is gearing up for its annual event, scheduled to take place from Friday, April 12 to Sunday, April 14 at Town Green Park, along The Waterway. This year, the festival will feature seven emerging artists, bringing fresh talent and creativity to the event.

According to Jenny Carattini-Wright, the executive director of The Woodlands Arts Council, involving new artists in the festival provides a platform for local talent to showcase their work, potentially kickstarting successful art careers and contributing to the creative economy in The Woodlands and its surrounding areas. To qualify as an emerging artist, individuals must not have previously exhibited their art at an outdoor festival and must reside in Texas.

He finds inspiration in everyday life and enjoys incorporating hidden messages and stories into his pieces.

Another artist to look out for is Tetyana Aleksenko, a Ukrainian-born artist currently residing in The Woodlands. Specializing in pastels, Aleksenko draws inspiration from nature, particularly flowers and seascapes, aiming to bring joy and beauty to the world through her art.
