Darryl will also provide photos printed on paper, metal, canvas or whatever you like at special, dog-gone-it pricing. Dog portraits make the perfect gift for those special people in your life who dig dogs.
Here’s a video about our mosaic artist – Carolyn, as she talks about her “Bootiful” entry.
Second Saturday: August 9 from 4pm to 7pm
The Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance, a collection of groups in the arts, music, theater, learning and entertainment, will begin showing some boot sculptures to the public. In the project known as Bootiful Wimberley, 30 businesses and organizations are sponsoring artists to paint six-foot fiberglass boots to highlight Wimberley’s artistic roots. Boots will be displayed temporarily at many of the stops on Saturday’s Gallery Trail before permanent installation. Working artists will be painting boots so you can view the fun of boot making – Wimberley style.
Wimberley Fine Arts Center is proud to be an organizer of Bootiful Wimberley and a sponsor of a bootiful, artistic boot. Come have a glass of wine, pick up a map, and take the Gallery (and Boot) Trail.
Members of Wimberley Fine Arts Center, along with Pitzer’s Fine Arts and Santa Fe Connection are the Steering Committee behind Wimberley’s “Bootiful Wimberley” public sculpture display. Soon, 30 six-foot boots will be installed throughout Wimberley for the public to see and admire. Artists are busy now turning the fiberglass structures into sculptures that represent Wimberley and its businesses and organizations. Visitors and residents will be able to take The Trail of Boots. Watch for announcements!
