Two-fer One

(click for a detailed map of
the various Parade locations)
Having recently delivered my two pieces to the Conservancy project I am now finalizing selection of the pieces I will be exhibiting in the Parade of Artists, a production of Boerne Professional Artists. This show will also be running in Boerne on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of this coming weekend. The show will be hosting about thirty professional artists at various locations throughout the city. As most of the members of Boerne Professional Artists are represented in some of Boerne's fine-art galleries, they will be on hand as their galleries host an opening of the show on Friday night, complete with complementary wine and hors d'ouevres.

I am one of the dozen or so so members who are not represented in Boerne galleries, and we will be exhibiting our work on "other walls" at a few different venues in Boerne. I have joined with eight other artists to form a temporary "atelier" (gallery/studio) at the Boerne Chamber of Commerce just across Main Street from Boerne's Plaza. We will also be hosting an opening on Friday evening with wine and food.

The Parade will be an incredible smorgasbord of fine-art, encompassing a diverse spectrum of mediums, styles, and sensibilities. The talent of the participating artists is first-class, and the level of their work is remarkable. Of course, all work is for sale and you are sure to find some piece that you "can't live without."  You will find works of oil paintings, pastels, watercolors, sculptures (bronze, stone, and more), photography, and MUCH more.

Take the free trolley to each
venue on both evenings!
As I mentioned, the opening festivities will be on Friday from 5 to 8PM, and includes wine and food at most locations. The show continues on Saturday from 10AM to 8PM (again with wine and food from 5 to 8PM). Also, a free trolley from venue to venue is available both evenings. It embarks from the Chamber of Commerce on the northside of Boerne (beginning at 5PM) and takes approximately 30 minutes to make the entire route.The show wraps up on Sunday from 12 to 4PM.

Come join us this weekend in Boerne for a great show of some wonderful art, pithy conversation with their creators, and some wine and culinary treats while you're at it.  And don't forget to take a favorite piece home with you, to enjoy for years to come!
