Mason’s First Friday Art Walk is coming Friday, September 7th. The time is 6:30-8:30 until the weather gets cooler and then we may start a little earlier. You can start anywhere you would like. The Blocks of the art galleries, artists, studio, and wineries are listed below.

Come in to see our new landscape paintings, some featuring a spring-time view of bluebonnets, and an exhibit of the many different dollars that have been legal tender in Texas for the past three centuries.
CINDY ZEMIS-MORRIS STUDIO: Whenever Austinite Liz Murray visits Mason (as often as possible), she first checks the marquee of the Odeon to see what’s playing. Not that it matters, since it is the Odeon experience she enjoys most, especially the small inexpensive bag of fresh popped popcorn. To support the Odeon, Liz has created blank note cards, which she is offering for a nominal donation during the September Art Walk. All proceeds will support the Odeon Preservation Association. Come see these quirky to pretty images she has captured with her iPhone camera.
SQUARE MUSEUM: Showcasing the history of Mason County.
GEMS OF THE HILL COUNTRY: Cerise (the new store manager) and Diane will be in Dallas at a jewelry show purchasing new items. Therefore they won’t be open for the September Art Walk.
