The arts have always been a big part of Winnsboro. One of the biggest draws to the area is the many art exhibits that come through Winnsboro Center for the Arts. This year the Art Center had a record attendance for its Women in the Arts Exhibit reception last week, with 207 coming to the reception.
Winnsboro Center for the Arts celebrates and showcases the creativity of the East Texas Wonen in its annual Exhibit. This Event opens every year with the exception of the peak COVID years. This is Exhibit number 12. More than 70 women created 132 pieces in this year's show. It is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday through September 23 in downtown Winnsboro.
The artists range in age from 16 to 80-plus, and most hail from the Winnsboro area and other cities in Northeast Texas. Mediums include paintings, ceramics, mosaics, jewelry, pottery, photography, quilting, and mixed media.
The artwork is for sale, with prices ranging from $20 to $2,000. A percentage of sales goes to the nonprofit Winnsboro Center for the Arts to help with expenses in serving Northeast Texas communities through educational programming, cultural experiences, and entertainment.
