Carolyn Pittman – August Artist of the Month

carolynCarolyn Pittman completely fell in love with the art of mosaics after taking some community education classes and has been creating mosaics for approximately 20 years since that first class.

She is known for her fluid abstract pieces that include copper tubing, beads, mirror and much more.  Carolyn also creates pieces containing flowers using stained glass and layering to create texture and depth in the piece.  Carolyn is well known for her love of making mosaic crosses.

Carolyn also creates custom pieces for clients’ kitchen backsplashes, fireplace mantels, and personal wall hangings.

You can find her work at the New Braunfels Art Gallery, Wimberley Fine Arts Center and Carolyn shows the third weekend of every month at Gruene Market Days.

WIMBERLEY’S GALLERY TRAIL TO PREVIEW BOOTIFUL BOOTS

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.
