Kathy Meador, a local artist, will be participating in the 12th annual Plein Air Competition and Art Show April 29-May 5 in Marble Falls. Out-of-town artists will arrive Sunday before spreading out to capture local scenes in the annual Paint the Town event.



Marble Falls will welcome nationally recognized artists to participate in the 12th annual Paint The Town during the week of April 29-May 5.

Artists will be arriving Sunday for week-long art activities that will include lectures, demonstrations, and opportunities to purchase top quality art. One great opportunity to see them at work will be Tuesday, May 1, when they will be working at Candlelight Ranch, 6408 Muleshoe Bend Trail, east of Marble Falls and south of Ranch to Market Road 1431. Ranch gates 9-7 will be open for public entrance.

“Come to the Lakeside Pavilion on Thursday, May 3, thru Saturday, May 5, to enjoy paintings of our beautiful Hill Country,” said Betsy Walker, Highland Lakes Creative Arts (HLCA) president. “And, there are still opportunities to be included in the VIP reception on Friday, May 4.”

However, organizers have made it clear no tickets to the VIP reception will be sold at the door. Tickets are available online for $45 per person. The event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. May 4 and includes a collectors' preview of art, a Mexican buffet provided by In Cahoots, announcement of competition winners, an auction of winning pieces, a tequila tasting and live music.
