The Texas Society of Sculptors holds their ninth annual show in the Georgetown Public Library this summer. The show, which opened June 26 and runs through September 23, includes 70 works of art by 29 artists. The annual exhibit is hosted by the Library with sponsorship from the City of Georgetown Arts and Culture Board. Works are on display throughout the public areas of the Library.
Reception on July 17
On Sunday, July 17, at 1 p.m., the sculptors will assemble on the library’s second-floor Bridge for an awards ceremony and reception, to which the public is invited. On the day of the reception, the library’s Live Music in the Library event will occur at 2 p.m., so attendees can enjoy the reception and awards ceremony upstairs at 1 p.m., then listen to the music at 2 p.m.
At the reception, awards will be presented for first, second, and third place. A Librarian’s Choice award will be presented for a sculpture selected by the library staff. Additionally, prizes will be awarded for various media. The Georgetown Arts and Culture board has donated $1,800 for cash awards, and Christina Rudofsky with Round Rock Arts will serve as judge for the exhibit. During the reception the artists will be available for conversation and questions.
