The Wimberley Valley Art league is offering its annual artists' studio tour this fall on September 21 and 22. This year visitors can view a wide variety of art ranging from painting, photography, fiber arts, glass sculpture, jewelry, and music. Six local artists representing these creative endeavors will be featured, making this showing an unusual cross section of artistic activity in this area.
Residents and tourists will have the opportunity of visiting workplaces not normally open to the public. Studios of the following artists will be shown: Sandra Doak and Sue Ellen Stavrand, fiber arts; Lilli Pell, paintings; Bob Cook, paintings and photography; Zanna James, jewelry; Bill Meek, glass sculpture; and Dodee and Billy Crockett, music production. Profiles and photos of the artists and their studios will be featured in area newspapers as the tour dates approach. Several artists have websites where further information is available.
Tickets benefit the Wimberley Valley Art League, a non-profit organization, and its art education projects. For this special fund-raising event, tickets will be priced the same as last year at $12 for adults and $6 for students.
Purchases of artwork may be available at various studios and a percentage of the sale will also benefit Wimberley Valley Art League projects. Tickets will be available mid-August at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. A "photo loop" orienting this year's tour with photographs of the artists and their studios can be seen at the Visitor's Center sometime in early September.
Don't miss this opportunity to see a part of what makes Wimberley an artist colony truly unique to the Texas Hill Country!
