Celtic Spirit World Wide Exhibition

If you happen to be in San Marcos, Texas between now and the end of February, stop into the Walkers’ Gallery for their ‘Celtic Spirit Worldwide’ Juried Art Exhibit. Of course, the coolest part of this exhibit, for me, is that I’m in it! Well, my Celtic art is in it. 😉 It’s really exciting – as a self-taught artist, I’ve never done the exhibit/show route and this is my first one. And I’d love to be able to go there in person and see it all myself, especially with all the other Celtic art they’ll have, but I won’t be able to make it to Texas anytime soon – alas!

A bit about the exhibit: “Celtic Spirit Worldwide. This exhibit celebrates the timeless and ever-evolving forms of Celtic art which have woven their multiple strands through many centuries — reflecting, absorbing, influencing, inspiring, recording and illuminating the interplay of the everyday and the spiritual. Artists are encouraged to enter work which speaks to their own personal engagement with Celtic aesthetic traditions. The exhibit and festival/reception are being sponsored by Austin’s Things Celtic, the San Marcos Area Arts Council and the City of San Marcos. Juror for the exhibit is internationally recognized British author and artist, Nigel Pennick. An artists’ reception and St. Bridget’s Festival will be held on Saturday, January 31st, 11:00-5:00 p.m, at the Walker Gallery in San Marcos. The festival will have live entertainment, food, and of course, wonderful artwork.”

I’ve asked the show coordinator to share a few photos of the event when she can so hopefully I’ll be able to post a few after the event is over – keeping my fingers crossed!

Addendum: I was doing a bit more research on the web and found this page at the sponsor’s web site (Things Celtic), and they have my ‘Celtic Dragon Labyrinth’ image at the bottom of the page! Yay!
