The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival Art Dash Party


Kick-off The Woodlands Arts Festival weekend by attending one of the most anticipated art events of the year! The Art Dash Party on Friday, April 8 includes a night of art and fundraising for The Woodlands Arts Council's Student Art Scholarship program. Reserve your space for this one-of-a-kind art experience! Purchase Art Dash Party Admission tickets and a ticket to the 60-Second Dash, for the ultimate evening with art.

60-Second Dash tickets include the opportunity for guests to claim a desired piece of art to take home with them, by running through a maze of art. Let the art and fun begin!


The 2022 Featured Artist is Guilloume Perez-Zapata, 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!


The 2022 lineup of performances and live music acts will be featured here as it becomes available.
