Arts Fest 2018 Application!

Next Year’s Art Fest!  2018 – April 28-29.

Back at The Waters Point!

As always, we are accepting artist applications on  zapplication.org now until mid-December.

2017 Arts Fest was a huge success! Although the weather was unusually nippy on Saturday for Central Texas, it didn’t stop festival goers from showing up to see the artists and listen to the music. The coffee vendor sold out completely! And the guy selling gorgeous handwoven blankets did an outstanding business as people piled on the layers to stay warm. Sunday was a perfect 72 degrees and the art under the pecan trees was dazzling! Thanks to all of our artists, musicians, volunteers, food vendors and the Meeks family for providing us such a beautiful setting and festival.

Anna Lisa Leal – Guest Speaker

Sept. 11, General Meeting

I’ve always loved the act of creation – especially in combination with the outdoors. My subject matter is what moves me and it’s usually based around the patterns of nature. My goal as a painter is to bring the beauty of the outdoors into our indoor living spaces. As a native Texan, I am drawn to the beauty of the American Southwest for her color and the tenacity of the plants and animals. The odd beauty of a cactus – prickly, spiny, difficult to touch – yet splendid in their own right. The line and undulation of the agave leaf. The poignant beauty of the agave flower- the last hurrah before her eventual demise. I know that the subject I am painting is in alignment with the universe when I’m painting and go into a Zen state. Those are the best paintings – the reflection of nature’s spirit in all of us.

May Gallery Show and 10th Anniversary Celebration!

  • May 16, 8-11am  —  Jury day for next art exhibit.
  • May 19; 5-7pm — Gallery Reception and 10 Year Gallery Anniversary Celebration! Art, cake, champagne. It’s a party, folks!
  • The winner of Maxine Price’s painting will be announced.

MAY 8 – RON RENCHER & Workshop

MAY 8 MEETING FEATURES RON RENCHER

Our guest speaker for our May 8 meeting will be Ron Rencher, a plein air painter extraordinaire! Take a look at his work on his website. You won’t want to miss this meeting. Ron will be discussing how to use color, shapes, and values to create unity and harmony in a painting. Ron currently lives in Wimberley but will be relocating to Taos so we are lucky to have caught him before he takes off.

 

WORKSHOP, WORKSHOP!! MAY 9TH

Ron will teach a one-day workshop on landscape painting and how to bring life to a painting by the proper use of values and color temperature. The workshop fee, including lunch, is $135 for members and $170 for non-members. To register, email Kathie Carlson.

THIS WEEKEND!
The Wimberley Valley Art League hosts its 9th annual Wimberley Arts Fest at a new location directly on the Blanco River. With more room for displays, parking and entertainment, about 115 local, regional and international artists are expected to exhibit. The artists are carefully selected to ensure a high quality festival. In addition to the artists’ booths, there will be continuous live music, lots of fresh food, and a beer and wine bar. Shuttles will take attendees into Wimberley Square for shopping/dining and exploring town galleries. Free admission; behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. Behaved people too!
