Upcoming Museum Events

  • Exhibit: Poppyville and Other Works by Vicki Brevell

    After a lifetime of doing everything but art, Vicki has now put her love of painting as a first priority. She wanted to major in art in college, but was quickly talked out of it by her father who said she'd never make a living with an art degree. So, scared that she might starve, she majored in business but squeezed in as many art electives as possible. Upon graduation she immediately went to work and never stopped. Never painted either!! She now devotes several days per week to pure painting time and enjoy the company of many local painters.

  • Exhibit: Nuestra comunidad: Williamson County’s Hispanic Roots

    In 1747, Spanish priests became the earliest settlers in the area, founding the short-lived San Xavier missions. Hispanic families continued to settle and shape this area over the next two and a half centuries. As one of the fastest growing population groups in the U.S., many are unaware of the long history of Hispanics in this area and their lasting contributions to the community. From pushing for desegregation, fair wages and labor practices to keeping their heritage alive- the roots of the Hispanic community run deep in Williamson County.

  • Exhibit: Sigi’s Art Chinese Ink Brush & Pastel Paintings

    Sigi always sought out art while growing up in Germany. Years later, living in the Azores, Sigi had the great opportunity to be taught art by retired Portuguese Professor of Art, Dr. M. Dias. Sigi was hooked and eager to continue to paint. In 1974, Sigi accepted a position at the University of New Hampshire and immediately studied Fine Art and Photography. In 1998, she moved to Georgetown and continued to paint in the medium of pastel. At the same time she discovered the art of Chinese Ink Brush painting. Again, she immersed herself in this ancient art form, enrolled in workshops taught by internationally known Chinese Artists and has won awards for her Chinese Ink Brush Paintings. The 'Gyotaku Snapper' painting was accepted in the 'National Juried Exhibition of the Sumi-e Society of America.”

  • Exhibit: Poppies & Progress: 1917-1923
