Big Art is Coming to Our Small Town!
The new Georgetown Art Center is expected to be complete in late May, with the grand opening of their first exhibit in June of 2013. The City of Georgetown is funding the transformation of the old fire house on Main Street into a community art center, and Georgetown Artworks will serve as the managing entity, responsible for all fundraising, volunteer staffing, planning and marketing.
Misty Adair, the Vice President of Georgetown Artworks, is excited about the new center and the niche it will fill in Georgetown and the surrounding communities. Its success, though, depends upon community involvement. “It’s important that this message is clear: the art center is for the entire community and we need the community to invest in it, either financially, or with their time or ideas, in order for it to succeed,” explains Misty.
This summer will be an exciting time at the Art Center, with exhibits from contemporary artist Benini and the innovative duo of Museum Anatomy. The center plans to offer interesting, unique art exhibits featuring established artists and quality juried shows featuring local and emerging artists.
The center is also planning their summer education calendar to include half day summer camps for children ages 6-12, as well as workshops and classes for teens and adults. In addition, they will offer free interdisciplinary programs and lectures in the gallery to compliment each exhibit
The Georgetown Art Center is currently accepting class proposals from potential artist/teachers, and resumes from local art teachers interested in working with children in the summer camps. Please send submissions to Misty Adair at or mail to 1102 S. Austin Avenue Ste 110-118, Georgetown, TX 78626 (Attn: Programs).  Those interested in volunteering at the art center in any capacity, call Jan Ligameri, volunteer coordinator, at 868-3228.  For more information, visit
Election of officers is coming up in May.  Please consider how you can participate more actively in your art guild by becoming a member of the board.
I would like to extend a special thank you to the Windbergs for sharing their lovely facility with the art guild. 
I look forward to seeing all of you Mar. 5th.
Lowana Carter
