Georgetown Art in the Square…

The first annual Georgetown Art in the Square was one of the most awesome free events I’ve ever been to and was held October 17th and 18th.  The Square was transformed in to an outdoor art gallery with over 150 artists and craftsman of every variety.

Sponsored by the City of Georgetown, New York Times, HEB, and the Arts and Culture Board the event was 2 days of arts and culture that was absolutely amazing.

Sugarpost/Fred Conlon had some absolutely amazing and entertaining metal sculptures. This 6 foot tall skeleton rock star actually had flames that shot out of his guitar neck. Fred hails from Salt Lake City, Utah and you can visit their site at http://www.sugarpost.com to see some very original and entertaining pieces.  My favorite was the metal bugs carrying off the lawn gnome.

There was just so much art at the show it defies imagination. Paintings, sculptures, metal and wood work, Silk painting, and a huge list much too large to cover here. You simply have to come to Georgetown for the next Art in the Square event hopefully next mid October. I’ll try and keep ya’ll updated on my fair little city.

Peace, Love, and Be Creative,
