Polished Edge: Chihuahua Trail Art Show extends deadline
La Vernia artist Winona Alder stands next to her painting, exhibited in the La Vernia Historical Association’s eighth annual art show held last year.
The deadline for entries in the ninth annual Chihuahua Trail Art Show and Sale has been extended to Friday, Sept. 20. The La Vernia Historical Association invites artists living within 100 miles of La Vernia to enter the juried show for fine art being held on Saturday, Nov. 2.
This year’s show theme is “Historic Moments on the Gonzales Road at the Cibolo Crossing.” Artists must submit two examples of their work; however, sculptures, nudes, and crafts are not eligible.
Eligible artists may enter up to four works of art and are invited to donate a work of art to the silent auction. The entry fee is $25 plus a suggested donation of 30 percent of sales.
The show is limited to 25 artists and will be held in the Studio La Vida at 106 E. Chihuahua St. in La Vernia from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a reception and awards ceremony from 6-8 p.m. Winners will be chosen by a professional judge. A “People’s Choice” winner will be chosen by show visitors.
All proceeds will benefit the La Vernia Historical Association and the artists. Applications are available at www.laverniahistory.com and must be mailed to LVHA, P.O. Box 513, La Vernia, TX 78121, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
