26th Anniversary of the Nacogdoches ArtWalk
Nacogdoches- In 1986, five Nacogdoches gallery-studios joined together to present the first Nacogdoches ArtWalk. This November, Nacogdoches will celebrate its 26th annual ArtWalk. On November 12, 2011, from 4 p.m. to 8p.m., the following Nacogdoches galleries will offer the community art exhibits, refreshments, and door prizes.
Caddo Trail Arts , a new gallery located at 404 East Main Street, will display local art as well as Tappa’s Photography, Danna’s Framing, and the Pineywoods Trading Company featuring jewelry and beadwork.
The Cole Art Center at 329 East Main Street invites Art Walk attendees to view “The Legacy of Diedrich Rulfs: Architect of Nacogdoches,” an exhibition of photographs taken by Christopher Talbot, interim director of the SFA School of Art.
Glass Castles is pleased to host the talented jewelers that will have table loads of silver, copper, gold, glass, flowers, beads and stones. Anne Tindell has been part of our studio for almost 1400 pairs of earrings. She continues to add unusual designs without ever compromising her distinct style. Tina Pierson has been expanding her jewelry into china, crystals and raindrops. She still makes the delicate floral stained glass pendants.
David and crew will be working on commissions for churches. Mims Chapel in Avinger is replacing their old doors with inserts of the Methodist symbol. We are also building the last window in the main sanctuary. Immaculate Conception in Moral is opening their foyer transom to be lit by a window of bevels and color. The design will copy the existing Dalle de verre glass windows that they made in 2000.
Teresa will display icons of ArchAngel Raphael that are in progress. She is studying with the Prosopon School of Russian Iconology. She has attended workshop/ retreats in 2009 with Master Iconographer Jennifer Perkins and with Master Iconographer Fr. Mefodii in 2010 and 2011.
