The Montrose Art Society was founded in February 2010, by a group of artists with diverse backgrounds, working and living in Houston, Texas.The purpose of The Montrose Art Society is to further help in developing and strengthening the artistic careers of each individual member, while engaging and interacting with the Houston community through the arts.Each member is expected to be active in promoting art at all levels, whether through workshops, teaching, volunteering or curating art exhibitions. We believe in teaching and sharing artistic professional practices to help everyone with artistic interest achieve his/her goals successfully.We are a self-funding organization. We receive commission on sales of art to help maintain our organization’s activities and cover basic expenses. This is done by cooperating with individual artists and organizations. Donations are also accepted from corporate and individual sponsors.
