The Art of Living Shines during October Tuscan Lakes Home Tour
Tuscan Lakes in League City will highlight The Art of Living with fine homes and fine art during an October showcase of homes.
As part of the event, the work of four local artists will be on display in each of the four new model homes on tour. Visitors can see the original artwork 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. The luxury model home by Westin Homes at 2872 Ragusa Lane, one of two the builder has in Tuscan Lakes, will only be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Visitors can register in each of the four model homes for a chance to win an original piece of artwork from the artists.
Featured artists include Kimvak Jen, who creates rich, vibrant paintings using palette knife techniques and Carl Noone, an award-winning landscape painter who has shown his work in Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and California. Carol Outlaw-Wagner also will have oil paintings on display in Tuscan Lakes featuring birds, coastal scenes and more. Also showcased during the tour will be the expressive works of photographer James Strough.
“Our collection of new model homes will be transformed from galleries of enticing home décor to actual art galleries as numerous pieces will be featured in each home throughout the month-long tour,” said Bob Douglas, general manager of Tuscan Lakes. “We hope the public comes out to support these fine local artists and to see how our residents are masters at the art of living.”
Westin Homes offer homes priced from the $240,000s in Tuscan Lakes, located on League City Parkway two miles east of Interstate 45.
Tuscan Lakes residents enjoy an active lifestyle, with a lifestyle director planning events at the resort-style pool and outdoor pavilion. Kayaking on a community lake, hiking and biking through the development and play dates at the playground add to the fun.
