Featured Artist & Best of Show Winners

Each year on opening day of the festival, a team of judges representing The Woodlands Arts Council review art from all participating artists to select a Featured Artist and Best of Show Winners. The judges are local gallery owners, art teachers, artists and business professionals. Artists are scored on artistic merit and on booth presentation. Prize winners are jury-exempt for two years, receive booth awards, and other benefits.

2022 Featured Artist

Guilloume is a master of “Bolismo” an emotional style using simple forms, textures, and movements to exhibit human feelings from the most complex to the simplest. Guilloume’s canvas is a unique expression of earthly humanism with its joys, afflictions, and fears. Born in Colombia in 1957, he dedicated himself to art at an early age and completed formal studies at Bellas Artes Institute in 1981. Guilloume works in oils, watercolors, oil-pastel, pastel, pencil, and ink as well as creates sculptures in bronze and stone. Guilloume maintains his studio in New Mexico. We are excited to have Guilloume as the 2022 featured artist and to showcase his work!
