KACC To Offer Exciting May/June Diversity

Debbie Minns, KACC Executive Director, is excited about this year’s Southwest Gourd Fine Art Show. “This will be the biggest gourd art show we’ve ever hosted with around 200 pieces.” Minns explains, “It’s a nationally juried show and so we have carefully selected artists coming from Arizona, California, Alabama, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado, Montana and, of course Texas. There is so much variety in what these artists create – there’s literally something that will fit with every kind of home or office décor.”

This year’s Gourd Fine Art Show will run from May 22nd through June 22nd.

“May is a favorite month for many people in the Hill Country,” smiles KACC Executive Director Debbie Minns. “We feel that we’ve put together an event schedule that compliments the spirit of May in Texas.”

In the Cornels Gallery “So-Real”, a show by Schreiner students Adam Boyd and Nick Newland, will debut their HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. This photographic process combined with printing on aluminum gives their art a surreal, and larger than life quality that you won’t want to miss.
