I had countless fascinating conversations with the many art lovers and collectors who viewed our works, and then it was equally as rewarding to spend extended lengths of time getting to know the other artists. I learned a great deal, and I hope I was able to encourage others and pass on some of my own knowledge and experiences.
To insure my ability to get into the next fall show, I began seeking membership with the group (after all, you can't really "invite yourself," can you?). After submitting a portfolio of my work, the BPA graciously extended an invitation to join their group, which I did, enthusiastically. Having been with the group for about a year now, I am enjoying their fellowship even more, and I am looking forward to putting on another great Hill Country Invitational the middle of October (http://www.boerneart.com/calendar).
The weekend show is the perfect opportunity for those serious (and those not-so-serious) about art to view some world-class art, talk in depth with those who create it, and maybe even go home with some of it to enjoy each and every day thereafter. You'd be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable way to spend a weekend in the Hill Country.
