KACC Features “Western Exposure”, Teachers Art & Digital Photography

Broad-tailed Hummingbird at Penstemon by Becky Johnson

Leading off July’s shows at Kerr Arts & Cultural Center, artists Karen Cooper, Becky Johnson and Tom Moss will offer works ranging from pastels to bronzes in a multi-media extravaganza entitled “Western Exposure”

Moss, an area sculptor, has been creating bronze sculpture for over 40 years. Most of his work is focused on Western themes: cowboys, horses, cattle, and Native Americans, but he is also well-known for his figurative and portrait work.

Johnson is a pastel artist from Colorado City, Colorado whose distinctive style in the dry medium of pastel is self-taught.  After an early focus on painting wildlife, landscape has become her primary subject in recent years.

Among Kerrville artist Karen Cooper’s favorite visual qualities are the tension and speed that epitomize action in the rodeo arena. Recently she also has begun expanding more into architectural subjects and interiors, with a special focus on historic mission churches in highly textured stucco and stone.

Debbie Minns, KACC Executive Director, admires the dedication and hard work of our Hill Country teachers, and is vocal in her support of these tireless professionals: “The upcoming Hometown Crafts Teachers Show that runs from June 29th through July 23rd is our way of giving back to these people who devote their lives to inspiring and preparing our young people to lead productive lives. We sincerely appreciate the ongoing sponsorship of these shows and the generous donations of cash and art supply prizes by Hometown Crafts – this will be our 12th annual Teacher’s Show!”

Minns continues: “One of the other things that Hometown Crafts does that makes this show very special is that not only do they donate all the awards, they also pay all entry fees – there are absolutely no fees for any teacher/artist, active or retired, who wants to enter the show.”

In the third KACC show for July, digital photographer Lucy Jennings of Kerrville will show her latest work. Describing her work, Jennings says “I have always thought of myself as an artist who loves photography. Boundaries are an invitation to visualize what lies beyond and behind. So, it’s up to the observer to fill in the blanks, verbalize, digest, and interpret as your mind and heart receive it. All the technology in the world is no replacement for a gifted eye. Whether it be beauty, decay, bleak discomfort, bright color and light, perplexing or random, my wish is that my work will cause you to think beyond the boundaries.”

The public reception for all July shows will be on Saturday, July 1st from 2-4 at the KACC galleries. The reception is free and open to the public, and delicious refreshments and beverages provided by KACC volunteers and area donors are always enjoyed at these events.

KACC serves the Texas Hill Country year-round with innovative art exhibits, hands-on workshops and community-wide art events. Our address is 228 Earl Garrett in downtown Kerrville, and Gallery hours are 10-4 Tues –Sat and 1-4 Sundays.

KACC to Host 12th Annual Southwest Gourd Fine Art Show

Feathers of a Rainbow by Mike Peyton

Feathers of a Rainbow by Mike Peyton, Best of Show winner

If like most folks your experience with carving gourds is limited to the annual Halloween pumpkin-carving ritual, the imaginative creations achieved by the Gourd artists on display at Kerr Arts & Cultural Center during May/June will be awe-inspiring. Using a wide variety of techniques including painting, carving, engraving, dying, and burning, they somehow manage to turn gourds of every possible shape and size into awesome works of art.

Deriving from a folk tradition that extends far back into history “Gourding” has grown hugely popular, with the Texas Gourd Society now numbering close to 300 active members. According to Judy Richie, artist/owner of Red Cloud Originals gallery in Arizona, “Gourd art is the fastest-growing form of art. Museums the world over have wonderful examples of gourd art with many of the gourds as old as 7000 years. My love and appreciation of the ancient art of the Native Americans along with contemporary designs inspires my artwork.”

The Southwest Gourd Fine Art Show, now in its 12th year in Kerrville, is a juried exhibit featuring works by the best gourd artists in the Southwest. The show runs from May 25th through June 25th at Kerr Arts & Cultural Center.

Schreiner University has a solid national reputation for turning out graduates in Communication Design who go on to successful careers that span the media and business worlds. According to Kerr Arts & Cultural Center’s Executive Director Debbie Minns, “Under the leadership of Professor David Smith and his colleagues, Schreiner University offers talented students practical and contemporary design education that is second to none, and the work by Schreiner seniors displayed in this year’s show confirms that reputation.”

The show spotlights a group of 8 senior students who will be exhibiting presentations that they have created to satisfy the exacting requirements of their senior thesis research.  The dominant theme of this show is the diverse ways that visual imagery is used to communicate. Visitors will enjoy browsing student projects that include pieces using 2D, 3D, multimedia, illustration, and photographic techniques to present a clear message to the viewer on a theme that the student believes is important and relevant.

The Communication Design show runs from March 30th through April 23rd, with an opening reception that is free and open to the public on April 1st from 2-4 pm.

Andy Villarreal

Andy Villarreal

 

 

The Kerr Arts &B Cultural Center in Kerrville, Texas is offering visitors side-by-side exhibits of Mesoamerican Heritage-inspired Artist Andy Villarreal and the profoundly moving and edgy contemporary paintings and sculpture of “Eyfells and Eyfells.” The show runs from February 9th through March 26th, with a public reception from 2 to 4- pm on February 18th.

The paintings of Kristin Eyfells are existential icons of both celebrities and ordinary people that bring the viewer into deep contact with the personality and character of the faces Eyfells paints. Johann Eyfells’s sculptures use mass and shape is interesting ways that tease the eye to look again.

Andy Villarreal’s intense attraction to object emblematic of Mesoamerican culture makes visitor to his exhibit “Indigenous Mesoamerican Culture” feel like they may have stumbled upon a Shaman’s workshop. Artist Villarreal brings both an artist’s eye and a collector’s passion to his work, which is to immerse the viewer in the art and the passion.

“We rarely achieve such interesting visual juxtaposition,” comments Debbie Minns, Executive Director of KACC. Minns continues “The Mesoamerican theme has even influenced our “Chocolate Fantasy” celebration this year, which falls right in the middle of the Villarreal and Eyfells exhibits in February 12th from 1:3 pm.

Kerr Arts & Cultural Explores Mesoamerican Origins Of Chocolate

“It took us a while to figure out how to join together the incredible art exhibits we have for February with our 2017 Chocolate Fantasy celebration,” notes Minns, KACC Executive Director.

Minns continues “I just couldn’t imagine mixing pink hearts and lace with such dynamic works.  In our quest for a solution, we discovered that chocolate originated in that very culture that will be depicted on the walls of our galleries, so we are going ‘all out’, tropics and rainforest.”

“Consequently,” Minns says animatedly, “in keeping with the ancient origins of Chocolate, we have a fabulous collection of Andy Villarreal’s ‘Indigenous Mesoamerican Culture’ work showing in the Avery.  The paintings are large mixed media pieces that are extremely bold in subject and color.  They depict the Mesoamerican ceremony and culture. At the same time, in the Cornels gallery, we’re featuring the impressively large portraits of celebrated women by deceased artist, Kristin Eyfells, These, too, are incredibly passionate and rainbow hued, and compliment the impressive sculpture of Johann Eyfells, also on exhibit. Rounding out the Feb/Mar KACC calendar is “Within Nature – Nature Within”, with the work of artists Monika Lovelace and Saundra Kattawar.”

The February/March collection of these three unique exhibits will run from February 9th through March 26th, with a free public reception featuring KACC’s usual fine spread of refreshments, to be held on Saturday, February 18th from 2-4 pm. Everyone is invited! Admission is free.

The 2017 Chocolate Fantasy event takes place at KACC on Sunday Afternoon, February 12th from 1-3 pm at the KACC Galleries, 228 Earl Garrett Street, Kerrville, Texas 78028. Tickets are $20 for Adults ($25 at the door) and $10 for 17 and younger. The event is popular and tickets are limited to permit maximum chocolate indulgence, so advance ticket purchases are advisable at 830-895-2911.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKerr Arts and Cultural Center January Gallery Exhibit

The New Year will see a gathering of some of the Hill Country’s most talented artists showing their incredibly diverse work in an “indoors street fair” with booths set up in all three of KACC’s galleries from Jan. 12th – Feb. 5th.

You never know what the annual “Starving Artists” show & sale will have to offer. In past years, artists have offered to create remarkably life-like portraits of a favorite pet working from photographs, while others have featured hand-woven sweaters and shawls that are perfect for surviving Texas Winters in style.

Entering into the spirit of the “Starving Artists” theme, the exhibitors price their work at “can’t pass it up” prices. To add to the variety of great finds available for visitors, the KACC gift shop has re-stocked after the Holidays and features a wide array of handmade treasures by local artists, many priced at under $20.

A percentage of all sales proceeds goes to KACC, which serves the Texas Hill Country year-round with innovative art exhibits, hands-on workshops and community-wide art events. Our address is 228 Earl Garrett in downtown Kerrville, and Gallery hours are 10-4 Tues –Sat and 1-4 Sundays.
