Two New Artists! Meet them on Second Saturday Gallery Trail.
We are expanding our gallery with two new, talented artists. Denise Beard is showing her realistic oils and pastels. Nina Mihm's work is contemporary collages. These gals are such a welcome addition to our gallery and bring a fresh look that is totally different than the rest of the artists' work. We hope you can come by on Second Saturday, April 12th. We'll have a BBQ vendor out front and drinks and snacks on hand. Both Denise and Nina will be in the gallery so you can meet them and learn more about their art. There are nine galleries on the Trail; pick up a map at any one of them and enjoy the tour.
Hardware Meets Art Ware at Ace -- A Screwy Show
Our artists took on the challenge to create art made of hardware or depicting hardware. This was in celebration of the reopening of our Wimberley Ace Hardware which had burned to the ground a year ago. We are happy Ace is back up and running -- such gracious hosts to let us display our creations. Thanks to everyone for showing up. We had a lot of fun and hope you did as well.

Wimberley Fine Art Center and Pitzer’s Fine Art are Impetus to New Public Sculptures in Wimberley
Soon, visitors to Wimberley will have twenty or more
artistic stops on their art trail. Wimberley will be hosting big boots – six
feet tall – all over town. Each boot will be embellished with paint and other
objects by artists from the Wimberley area. The boots are being sponsored by
Wimberley merchants and other benefactors who want to join the fun. The primed
boots are due to arrive in April and then the artists will get to work. If all
goes well, you’ll see the boots for the first time at the July 4th
Parade. After that, they will be permanently installed in front of the sponsor
locations. Maps will be printed so visitors can enjoy what Bootiful Wimberley has
New art from a DFC graduate
The DFC was very fortunate to receive two beautiful pieces of art last week from artist and graduate client Julie Underriner. We had a little “opening” (in the now considerably brighter dining room!) to thank Julie, and those of us present were deeply moved by her description of the paintings and what they mean to her. Read on to find out more, and we hope you will be able to visit soon to see these stunning works in person.To read the complete article click (here)
