Art of the Sacred Springs exhibit seeks submissions

 The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University invites artists to submit artwork inspired by Spring Lake and the San Marcos Springs for inclusion in the upcoming Art of the Sacred Springs Exhibit at Spring Lake on Saturday, April 28, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

In celebration of the San Marcos Springs, artists are encouraged to translate the beauty of Spring Lake and The Meadows Center through their artwork. Submissions must be in an 8-inch by 8-inch format and weigh no more than five pounds. The Meadows Center will accept up to two submissions per artist. To participate in the opportunity to display art, submit an application by  April 1. Upon acceptance, artists will be given more details.

“This is a great opportunity for students and local artists to showcase their work and share their passion for the San Marcos Springs, which provide water for the San Marcos River and Spring Lake,” Community and Research Manager Miranda Wait said.

Tickets for an adult-only art showing at Spring Lake on April 28 are available online. Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door. Beverages and light refreshments will be provided.

The exhibit will have an extended showing at Dahlia Woods Gallery  May 3-5, which will include a closing reception from 6-8 p.m.  Saturday, May 5.

The art featured will be available for purchase, with proceeds split 72/28 to the artist and the Dahlia Woods Gallery. Proceeds raised from ticket sales will support the Spring Lake education program and the Indigenous Cultures Institute’s Summer Youth Program. Prizes for first, second and third place entries will be given during the April 28 art showing at Spring Lake.
