Name of Event: 
A Time of Remembrance, The Art of Chaim Goldberg



Town:  Winnsboro



Description of Event: 
One of the amazing things about Winnsboro is that we attract unusual performers, musicians and artists.  That's likely one of the reasons we were among the first group of Designated Art Districts by the Texas Commission on the Arts.

The art in this exhibit comes in many forms, including sculpture, exquisite line drawings and colorful paintings.  Goldberg was born in Kazimierz-Dolny on March 20th, 1917.  The village was, before and during WWI and WWII, a vibrant art community.  His work reflects life in his village.



Cost:  A $5 donation is suggested.



Time:  Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat. 10 am – 2 pm

Location, address:  Winnsboro Center for the Arts; 200 Market Street

Phone, email, website people can use to get more information:  903-342-0686;  wca.artscenter@gmail.com ; www.winnsborocenterforthearts.com

Date:  May 15 – June 1



Name of Event:
  The Contemporary Impressionism of Ellie Taylor Exhibit, Part I



Town:  Winnsboro



Description of Event: 
Holly Lake artist, Ellie Taylor, will be exhibiting her loose, free-flowing style of painting with vibrant florals and landscapes as part of the Winnsboro Center for the Arts’ celebration of Impressionism and the Starry, Starry Night Fundraiser for the WCA. 

Of her work, Taylor says, “All my paintings must include the artist’s first impression of what is being painted. I want my art to express feeling, aesthetic beauty, awe, and drama. I use exaggerated color and bold impressionistic strokes. That is just me...”  We say, she’s an amazingly prolific and sensitive painter, and we’re tickled to finally have the opportunity to display her work.



Cost:  Donations graciously accepted.



Time:  Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat. 10 am – 2 pm

May 18th



Name of Event: 
Starry, Starry Night Dinner & Art Auction Fundraiser



Town:  Winnsboro



Description of Event: 
We have resurrected and restructured our beloved Starry, Starry Night Fundraiser for this year.  First off, our dinner at this May 18th event, which begins at 6:30 pm, will be catered by Beauweevil’s Catering, who captivated our culinary senses with their spread at the Main St. Program’s 10th Anniversary reception.  Instead of functional art, this year we will be auctioning over 50 pieces of 6” x 6” pieces of art created and donated by talented local artists.  “Tex” and Chana Gail Willis have agreed to handle the auctioneering for us  and Absentee Pre-Bidding begins at the 3rd Friday Art Walk.  Art aficionados will be able to silently bid on selected 6” x 6” pieces.  The highest bid for each item will then become the beginning bid at the auction on Saturday, May 18th.  If that bid is not challenged, the silent bidder wins the bid… if the bid goes higher, the live auction highest bid wins!

 

We’re seriously looking forward to a festive and entertaining evening…if you’re stumped for a gift for Mother’s Day, how about tickets to Starry, Starry Night and a promise to pick up the tab on a winning bid or two? 





Cost:  $35 for dinner & auction, including 2 complimentary glasses of Texas wine; tickets on sale at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts and Winnsboro Emporium (316 N. Main St.)



Time:  6:30 pm
