The Katy Culture & Arts Alliance and Multiplicity present
the Art of CAROL ADAMS & MIKE HORN for the first time!
Carol is a native Houstonian residing in Katy since 1992. She describes her works as:
“I love the freedom of working with wood. I don’t always know what I am working with, so I never know what I’ll find as the wood turns on the lathe. Each piece creates itself and as the rings and grain are revealed you learn about what may have happened both to the tree and in the world it grew in. You don’t get a second chance when working with wood, if you mess up it is ruined. So this medium, like life, comes with the potential for great disappointment or great satisfaction.”
Mike is a newcomer to Katy, recently moving to our area a few months ago. He is originally from Rifle, Colorado and has been working with his ink and metal medium for 12 years.

January 23, 2012 marks the beginning of the Year of the Dragon. A Dragon Year comes every twelve years and alternates Dragons based on five elements. 2012 marks the year of the Water Dragon. Other Dragon years are the Wood Dragon, the Metal Dragon, the Earth Dragon, and the Fire Dragon.
The Lunar New Year is celebrated by many Asian cultures including by individuals from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Okinawa, Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Sydney, and Singapore. The Dragon, a “sacred creature,” is a symbol of power, courage, dignity, and good fortune in all aspects of life.
