The Mid-West Texas Artists Guild will hold their seventh annual Miniature Art Show and Sale on Saturday, April 26, in conjunction with the Ethnic Festival. This will be held at the Do-Art Studio at 108 South Ninth Street. Hours will be from 10: 00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
This is an area wide show with entries from Abilene, San Angelo, Coleman, Winters, Brownwood, Llano among other places. This is an opportunity for us to bring people into our community.
A raffle is being held in conjunction with the show and raffle tickets will be available until 4:00 p.m. Saturday. This years raffle is for a miniature painting of a bird which has been painted by Lue Kraatz, a member of M-WTAG. She does such an excellent depiction of colorful birds that she has acquired the name "The Bird Lady."
On Thursday, April 24, patrons will have an opportunity to attend a Blue Star Purchase preview sale. The opportunity is presented for purchase of select miniature paintings for the nominal fee of $50. This is a great opportunity to add to your collection or get a special gift for someone. Hours for this event are from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
If you are interested in the Blue Star Purchase, please contact any guild member. This will be the second year for the Blue Star Purchase, but is similar to the Purchase Awards that were held before.
Prints and cards of members paintings will also be for sale at this time.
We will be signing up for art camp throughout the day on Saturday. If you have a student who is interested in learning about art, please get their name on the list. There is limited space and it fills up fast.
We invite everyone with an interest in art to please join us on Saturday, April 26, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The award presentation will be at 4:00 p.m. and the show will be over at that time.
Please join us for an art-filled day at the Do-Art Studio.
