Art display: In the Spirit of Christmas


Granbury artists are joining forces to present a creative Christmas tree on the square. The tree is part of a fund-raising effort to support art in the Granbury middle schools and ninth grade campus.

In the Spirit of Christmas is the theme for the creative tree. Area artists will contribute unique pieces of art to decorate the tree.

The items from the tree will be auctioned by Shawn Hardin on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 3 – 8 p.m. on the square.

The works include stained glass, blown glass, sculpture, and wall art by artists Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Rebecca Zook, Elise Techentine, Aaron Tate, Sam Jones, Cynthia Bell, Stacey Watkins, Cynthia James, Vicky Guthrie, Laura Hensley, Jane Conkling, Bonnie Welch, Ron Marrs and Cathy Quest among others. Selected works from the schools will also be featured.

The artwork will remain on the tree through the Christmas season. When the tree comes down, the winning bidders will be given their artwork.

“This art tree will be a sight to see with works by nationally recognized artists,” said Cynthia James.

In the Spirit of Christmas is sponsored by Galleries of Granbury. For more information contact Cynthia James at Artefactz, 817-408-0000 or Linda Watkins at Your Private Collection Art Gallery, 817-579-7733.
