Laurel Daniel - November Guest Artist

Laurel Daniel is a well established and award winning plein air painter, formerly the president of the Plein Aiir Austin. Currently, she's a faculty member at the Austin Museum of Art.

Here's what Laurel has to say about ther Journey!

My lifelong love for nature inspires me to contemplate the landscape. As a plein air painter, I begin outside, working quickly to discern the shifting patterns of shadows and light. Back in studio, I try to paint with the same closely-observed spontaneity. Capturing a moment in time is an impossible task, but for me, an endlessly compelling one.

October Framer's Gallery Report

Hello Art Enthusiasts!

It's October in Georgetown, Texas and the summer heat is now just a memory.  Cooler weather and great art is what's in store at the Framer's Gallery, located at 610 S. Main St.  WCAG artists Sandy Archer, Kay Dimitri, Connie Hartsfield, Gretchen Hecht (GretchenArt), Wes Odell, Leland A. Reneau, Darrel D. Schmidtt, Charlotte Sylvest and Alexis Templeton are displaying their art in the gallery through October 31st.  The quality of the art is outstanding.  In fact, the voting for the People's Choice Award (held during Georgetown's First Friday event) was very tight.  Through most of the evening there were three art pieces that bounced around in first place. At the last call for votes point, there was a three way tie.  The final votes of the evening determined the winner. 
And the winner is!!!!!......   Gretchen Hecht (GretchenArt) for her "Homes and Churches in Georgetown."  Congratulations Gretchen!

Any WCAG artist who is interested in displaying their art during November should contact Connie Hartsfield,, and make a reservation.
