Wimberley Valley Art League Gallery Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Wimberley Valley Art League Gallery Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Has it been ten years?  Yes, it has!  The gallery of the Wimberley Valley Art League will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Friday, May 19th at the opening reception for a member show, juried by Dana Brown, an artist educator.  Once again, the Wimberley community will be treated to a selection of as many as 50 works of all media by local artists.  They will be beautifully displayed in the gallery that held its Grand Opening in May of 2007.

Much thought and care went into creating a successful gallery.  Working closely with the Board of the Wimberley Community Center to create a mutually beneficial arrangement, the Gallery Steering Committee, under the guidance of then President Deborah Elliott and President -Elect Marianne Vieregg, pursued the gallery concept as a means of promoting the arts and in turn tourism to Wimberley.  Careful consideration was given to the lighting, hanging system and wall color to enhance the art.  Those foundational elements continue to serve the gallery today.

The League was begun in 1990 by Pam Lamoureux, Lois Richards and Gail Stoops to encourage the promotion and production of fine art in Wimberley Valley.  They were probably aware of the many artists already in the community and there are even more today.  The League has since grown to an approximate membership of over 200.  In addition to hosting bi-monthly juried shows, the League supports artists with workshops, a studio tour, a non-juried show and sale and a student show which features work by area schools.

Considering the many events and activities offered by WVAL, the jewel in the crown is the gallery itself.  The League is very fortunate to have the consistent use of a beautiful space that serves this purpose so well.  Please join us on May 19, from 5 to 7pm to view a great new juried show and to celebrate the gallery and all that it does to enrich our community.
