This weekend is a chance for you to find a unique part of the Hill Country that you have never seen before. The annual Parade of Artists is happening this weekend and it is not something that you want to miss!
Let us know in the comments if you have purchased any local art before or if this weekend will be your first chance to see what Boerne’s artists are creating.
This upcoming Saturday, April 14th, and Sunday, April 15th, talk a walk through the Hill Country Mile on Boerne’s Main Street and peruse the local art that the talented citizens of Boerne will be showcasing.
The Boerne Parade of Artists will be celebrating its 22nd year of this wonderful tradition, and as the weather is warming up, this weekend will be perfect to explore local talent throughout our Hill Country town.
The Parade is hosted by the Boerne Professional Artists and is a self-guided tour of art that weaves around the middle of town. Artists will be setting up their works around 10:00 am and will begin taking their stops down around 8:00 pm each night.
As the walk spans all day, you have plenty of opportunities to fit an hour or so into your schedule and explore. A quick lunch and then a walk on a warm Spring day sounds like the perfect weekend interlude, and this parade gives you a wonderful excuse to do just that.
Paintings by artists such as Chris Lange, Noma Freeman, Kathleen Dietz, and Sylvia Ramsey to name a few will be showcased and each artist will be present so all of your questions about their pieces.
The Parade will showcase other mediums as well, such as pottery by Mudworks Pottery, photography by Jim Heupel, decorative ceramics by Linda Manning, and many more.
The styles of the artists cover a massive range, so you will never get tired of seeing the same type of art out on display. From classic landscapes to impressionistic pieces to surrealism at its finest and contemporary works, you are sure to find a piece that speaks to you.
What better way to find the perfect work of art for your home than by becoming a patron to people in your community. The art community in Boerne thrives off of the encouragement and sponsoring of locals, so be sure to thank the diverse community by giving back.
Whether you want to buy a piece of artwork or simply give your appreciation to the colorful community of artists in Boerne, the Parade of Artists this weekend is something that will be inspiring to the entire community, so you will not want to miss it.
