Calling all chocolate lovers! On February 15th from 1-3 pm KACC is hosting our annual “Chocolate Fantasy” event – just in time to keep those Valentines Day vibes going strong.
Participants will enjoy a Chocolate & Champagne Buffet featuring dozens of entries from the “Best Hill Country Chocolate Contest” and can vote for their favorite. If the buffet and bubbly aren’t quite enough indulgence, you’ll also be able to dip into the free-flowing Chocolate Fountain. (That’s “dip” into the fountain, not “take a dip”, just in case you were thinking of getting carried away.
Participants will also be able to bid on an exciting array of elegant items in a Silent Auction. Proceeds from the Chocolate Fantasy events benefit the Kerr Arts & Cultural Center’s year-round educational programs and art exhibits. Tickets for the event are $20 per person 21 and over, and $10 per person under 21. Tickets can be purchased online at www.kacckerrville.com, or by calling 830-895-2911 or coming by during Gallery hours which are 10-4 Tues – Sat and 1-4 Sunday
LA Chic At KACC In February
The Kerr Arts & Cultural Center’s featured Event & Artist for February is Laurent Daubas, who is presenting a multimedia show as a centerpiece of KACC’s month of surprises. Laurent has created a broad array of graphic works for major companies in Los Angeles, including Virgin Mega Store and Tower Records, and is the founder of dōbooks interactive, an independent design studio located in the Texas Hill Country.
dōbooks are interactive digital children’s books for all ages, illustrated with beautiful original art and sprinkled with music & sounds. Watercolor pages are worked through a separation process enabling subtle and beautiful movements in selected artwork. Rather than turning pages, navigation is achieved by observing and tapping on sparkling elements. The dōbook utilizes a branching system within the story allowing the reader to explore different paths and experience up to three alternate endings and solve a puzzle, play mini-games and win hidden trophies.
The dōbook allows each child to enter his or her name in a login screen enabling them to help the protagonists with different tasks, while learning interesting and relevant aspects of new and different cultures. dōbooks interactive recently released their first digital children’s book, “Mystery of Lost Red Scarf – The Magical Adventure of Jacques & Missy in Costa Rica” in June 2014. “A Hide & Seek Halloween Tale – The Adventures of Jacques & Missy in The Spooky House.”
The artist will be available to discuss his work at the upcoming February Reception in the Cornels Gallery. February at KACC also features the Members Kitchen Art Show in the Derby Gallery, with food, wine, beverage related artwork perfect for kitchen décor, as well as the Kerrville Art Club Show And Sale Show in the Avery Gallery.
The reception for all February shows including an introduction to his work by Laurent Daubas will be on Thursday, February 5, from 4:30 – 6:30, the evening before all of February’s KACC events open on Feb. 6.
