By Bill BauerSpring has arrived. The weather is beautiful and you just want to get out and enjoy God's creation.

Speaking of spring and creation, the Victoria Art League's Spring Art Show is just around the corner. This will be a juried competition with cash prizes for each division and $100 for best of show.

We will be taking entries from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. March 24 and 25 at the Victoria Art League. The fee for adults 18 or older is $10 per entry and students $5 per entry.

Show opening and awards presentation is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 27.

The show will hang in the Victoria Art League gallery through April 8.

There are divisions in drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, and photography.

Rules and guidelines can be picked up at the art league. We want to have the biggest show ever so get your art ready and bring it on.

The Victoria Art League continues to offer new classes and workshops. A woodcarving class will be taught by Lem Smith from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 11 -12. Cost is $25. Also, Jim Feig will teach more photography classes in March with two advanced photography classes being offered for four weeks from 6:30-8:30 p.m., one starting March 8, and the other starting March 10.

He will also offer a beginning class starting the April 5 on Tuesdays.

Sonny Timme continues to teach oil, acrylic, prismacolor, gouche and pencil 1 to 4 p.m. or 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Morris Williams will teach a class on multi-media collage and fabric design, if there is enough interest, and Fred James is going to offer a class in watercolor for beginners.

Sally Pryor will start a stained glass class in April. She will give the program and demonstrate stained glass at our March 13 meeting.

Come join us for this interesting and informative program at the Art League, 905 S. Bridge starting at 2 p.m. with refreshments.

If interested in any class, contact us at the Art League.

Tomorrow, I will teach my last pottery class, until next time. We will finish the classes with a Raku firing along with unloading the kiln and critiquing the work. Students can come use the facilities to continue creating pottery after classes are finished.

Other members meet to create in a variety of mediums already. In fact, numerous art league members such as Marie Frankson, Gloria Dorris, Joyce Ritchey, Jim Feig, Roddy Wilson, Linda Swickheimer and Roberta Sharp exhibit at the airport, Wells Fargo and Citizens Medical Center. That is one of our goals here at the Victoria Art League, to provide a place where artists can come together and develop their skills and then show their talent to the public.

If you have an interest in art and would like to associate with like-minded people, come by and see us, or give us a call at 361-572-0825 between 1 and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Bill Bauer is president of the Victoria Art League.
