NEW THIS YEAR! The “LITTLE RED” FOOD TRUCK, a major vendor at the State Fair of Texas since 1949, will have sliders and fries for purchase. Mmmmmm!! There will be a few socially-distanced picnic tables available or bring a blanket and set up elsewhere on the property. NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions, you must bring your own drinks (alcohol allowed), and depending on the weather, you may definitely need to hydrate. You can also bring your own food and snacks. Also, unfortunately, we are not able to provide public restrooms this year due to sanitary restrictions.
“CATCH AND RELEASE FISHING” is once again part of the afternoon! Challenge your friends and family for “braggin’ rights”! (Bring your own gear.)
HIDDEN MOSAIC STUDENTS EXHIBITION – Meet student who love breaking things, cutting glass and tile, sawing, gluing, and grouting! Michelle Akers, Becca Bartolo, Joan Hudson, MaryJo Marvin, Sherry Mills, Mary Spencer, Sara Wandrey, and Renee Cecil,will display their work and talk to you about their experiences bonding over the art of mosaic in Barbara Dybala’s Friday morning mosaic class.
5:00 PM – Raise your glasses and toast to the unveiling of “Nature’s World” on the west studio wall! On a cold evening in November 2019, Barbara drew the cartoon “Nature’s World” on a bare side of the studio. Inspired by the magnificent little creatures all around us and a giant Praying Mantis rescued from a Walmart parking lot, the work began with the goal to complete the 24’x 36′ stunning mosaic by Mother’s Day 2020. Volunteers from as far away as California came to be part of the project. Special recognition goes to “interns” Sarah Wandrey and Yuliya Guzman, who dedicatedly volunteered once a week until completion.
