Since neither of us can be in two places at once, this means that I’ll be greeting visitors at Casa de Linda Art Studio while David shares some holiday cheer at our Wildflower Art Gallery.
We are planning to offer some specials, such as sale prices on umbrellas, note cards and keepsake boxes, at both locations. But there will also be some new art on exhibit and some great “deals” unique to each location.
WILDFLOWER ART GALLERY HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE,
OPENING FOR “REMEMBRANCE,” PLUS WIMBERLEY ALIVE! REVIVED
By coincidence, our Holiday Open House at Wildflower Art Gallery will be held during the town’s Wimberley Alive! Revived event. This huge art-n-music fest was originally scheduled for late October and then the rains came, again, followed by flooding, again. (Luckily, our gallery has been out of harm’s way for both of the floods!)
After getting rained out, Wimberley Alive has been re-scheduled as a 2-day festival. Co-produced by Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance and Wimberley Valley Radio 94.1FM, the festival will feature continuous live music with Kevin Welch, Shake Russell, Michael Hearne, and 14 other talented musicians. Nearly 30 fine artists will be on hand to show their unique creations. Free shuttles to transport to and from remote parking. All concerts are free, however donations are requested for Barnabas Connection. For a schedule, visit wimberleyalive.org.
Meanwhile at Wildflower Art Gallery, David will be there to meet-n-greet visitors with a complimentary glass of wine and some great deals on gifts and art, limited to the stock on hand. Plus, it will be the opening weekend for “Remembrance,” an exhibit of paintings in my poppy series. This will be the first time that all of the paintings will be shown in one exhibit.
I first started the poppy series earlier this year at the request of Artisans Connect, a gallery in Georgetown (north of Austin). Artisans Connect now represents me but is showing mostly my smaller works due to space limitations. It's a beautiful little gallery located in the hear of Georgetown near the courthouse square and I encourage you to check it out if-and-when you are in the area.
As you may know, poppies are often associated with remembering those who served and died during battle. They have a long history of symbolism, ranging from sleep and peace to resurrection. But in addition to (or in spite of) all of that history and interpretation, they are just so pretty! I've really enjoyed painting this series and look forward to each painting finding the right home!
Wildflower Art Gallery will be open for its regular hours while celebrating the Holiday Open House. You can visit Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m. Of course with the Wimberley Alive event going on Saturday and Sunday, David may be staying later as long as he has visitors in the area!
CASA DE LINDA ART STUDIO HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE,
“ASPENS” EXHIBIT & STUDIO SALE
In addition to new paintings in the poppy series, I’ve also been adding paintings to my “Aspens” series. In addition to the spring-n-summer seasons, I’ve now completed a couple of paintings for autumn and a one for winter. Shown here is a sneak peek at one of those new paintings, "Silence is Golden." These new works will be on exhibit for the first time during my studio Holiday Open House.
You’ll find a large selection of my wildflower paintings, some with “studio sale” pricing during the Casa de Linda Holiday Open House. Save 20%, 40% and even more on a few select works.
And finally, in addition to a limited stock of note cards, umbrellas and keepsake boxes that are sale priced and on hand for the open house, I’ll have a small selection of my new purses and watches for you to check out!
Since Casa de Linda is where we offer classes, I also plan to have the Winter 2016 (Jan-Mar) schedule ready to pick up.
My hours at the studio will be Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m. These are the same hours that the New Braunfels Art League Gallery is open downstairs. Since you have to enter through the gallery to come up, I've kept the same hours. However, if you'd like to visit in the evening on any of those days, I'd be happy to set an appointment for you!
David and I are looking forward to visiting with our friends during this big Holiday Open House event! Visit our website for contact info: www.lindacalvertjacobson.com.
