Arte de los Brazos

Juried art show opens Saturday at PK Chamber

From staff reports

POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE – The coming of spring adds color from more than flowers. This Saturday begins that weeklong run of the 4th Annual Arte de los Brazos Art Show and Sale, and organizers expect between 140 to 160 works of art from area artists, free to view and all for sale.

This juried show opens Saturday at the Possum Kingdom Chamber of Commerce. It features works by artists from many art clubs, from locales like Graham, Mineral Wells, Breckenridge, Weatherford, Bosque County, Hamilton, Wichita Falls and Brownwood.

In addition, there will be seven invited artists-at-large, whose works will be on display but not judged.

New this year is a featured artist, Rance Jones, an international award-winning watercolor artist from Richardson. Jones, raised in West Texas, will display several pieces of his art.

Jones employs a realistic style that is “both refreshing and relative,” according to organizers. In addition, an Arte de Brazos press release states that his paintings “broaden the boundaries of watercolor technique,” and each is a “masterful example of how the artist portrays the world he explores through art.”

The Arte de los Brazos Art Show and Sale runs through Sunday, April 21. The PK Chamber is located at 362 North Farm-to-Market Road 2353 at Possum Kingdom Lake. Hours for the show are Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.-4 p.m., and weekdays 2 p.m.-4 p.m. The show is free of charge to the public.

And there are some added happenings.

“We are bringing back wine tasting each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” said show chair James Smith.

Wineries this year will be Brennan Winery, this Saturday, and Times Ten Cellars Winery on April 20. There will be a small fee for tasting.

“In addition, we will have an event on Thursday evening,  April 18, called “Wine and Design – Uncork your Creativity,” said Smith.
