Red Poppy Festival

It’s that time of year and Red Poppy Festival is near.  The festival usually draws around 30,000 visitors for the weekend and Georgetown Art Works is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful and fun event.  We will have two booths at the corner of Main and 8th Street.  One will be an informative booth about the art center and its’ programs.  The other will be a fun art center for children.

The Red Poppy Festival booths will be open Saturday, April 27th from 10am until 6pm and Sunday, April 28th from 11am until 5pm.  We need volunteers for 2 or 4 hour shifts each day.  There will be a board member on hand at all times to help answer questions or take money.  If you are interested or would like more information, please respond to Jan Ligameri at 512-868-3228 or  and I will call you to answer any questions and/or confirm the day and times you prefer to volunteer.  This is a great opportunity to share what the art center will have to offer and have fun at the same time.
Thanks, Jan

This is the time of year when the Texas weather is perfect!  It's a great time for artists get out do a lot of plein air work.  It's also a great time to view all the works.

The following WCAG members have work displayed at the Framer's Gallery, 610 S Main Street, Georgetown, TX during the month of April: Maggie Allen, Sandi Archer, Scott Carlin, Joan L. McShane, Joan Miculka, Wes Odell, Luisa-Maria Potter, and Rebecca Rodriguez.

Their works will be on display until Wednesday, May 1st.  So be sure to go by and take a look.

As usual, there were many, many people through the gallery during the First Friday celebration.  After all the People's Choice votes were counted, one emerged as the winner.  Congratulations goes to Rebecca Rodriguez for her painting, "Spring Green."
