It’s all around us.
It’s also down the road apiece.
As in the town: Art, Texas.
This coming Saturday it’s gonna be all around the square.
Art, that is.
The 4th Annual Starving Artist Show.
If you like art, don’t miss it.
The artists are still starving.
Sidewalks will be crowded with their work for sale.
Oil and watercolor paintings.
Sketches and drawings.
Photography and ceramics.
A little bit of everything.
If you don’t like art, come anyway.
All the shops will be open.
So will the cafes.
And we have two of them right on the square.
Willow Creek Café.
Just south of the square is Santos Taqueria.
And next door is Sandstone Cellars Winery where they’ll be popping open their newest wine from 5 to 9 p.m.
Three blocks north of the square is Northside Café.
Don’t miss it.
So stroll around.
Work up an appetite.
Work up a thirst.
Hug an artist.
Buy some original artwork.
Browse the many shops.
Including Artisan Gallery just north of the square.
And head northwest off the square for even more treasures.
The Thing Is.
Community Thrift Store.
Keep on going.
You’ll discover Texas Deadwood BBQ on the left.
Lots to do and see and buy and eat and drink.
And Saturday’s the day.
Come one, come all.
Plus celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Mason County Courthouse.
Lots of good ghost stories to be told inside.
And all you witches, don’t forget your brooms.
Because the next day is Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeen.
(It’s creepy and it’s spooky…)
