A smorgasbord of stimuli was available to taunt, tease and please one’s senses at the recent art show held in Mason.
Naturally, the “eyes” had it: it was, after all, an art show. The mediums used ranged from oils to photography, to metal sculptures to jewelry. After a while some of the artist’s styles were recognizable.
The aural sense could delight in the buzz of friendly conversation and laughter which ran the gamut from “tinkling” to hearty, booming guffaws.
Attendees were able to touch various pieces, especially the jewelry and sculpted items. Also, in places where folks gather, there will doubtless be the genial touching of friends hugging each other; that’s always a good thing.
The smells greeting one’s olfactory nerves included flowers and food. The Almighty, not to be outdone, added to the ambiance by perfuming the air with the indefinable scent of spring.
A person’s sense of adventure was intrigued by the people one met: an artist from London (Texas) and a young couple from the central part of California.
Let us not forget the sense of taste. Offered for the pleasure of one’s palate were fresh fruits, crisp wines, robust cheeses and creamy chocolates, among other delights.
All in all, it was a thoroughly delightful evening and I anticipate attending in the future.
This was the second annual event for the FAAHC (Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country).
The time and the money, the ticket was a mere $10, were very well spent.
