We're looking forward to seeing you!

Tuesday, July 14 at 10 am

Henkel Hall in Round Top

Henkel Hall is across the square from the Copper Shade Tree Gallery

Guest Speakers
Debbie & Gerald Tobola
 Owners of the Copper Shade Tree Gallery

Debbie & Gerald will talk about showing your fiber art in a fine art gallery: what they look for as gallery owners, how to present your work to a gallery/curator, best practices for marketing your self as a working fiber artist and more.

Debbie & Gerald Tobola are the owners of the Copper Shade Tree Gallery and big supporters of the fiber art community. Copper Shade Tree is a fine art & craft destination located in the heart of Round Top, Texas. It displays a delightful collection of decorative fine art and functional crafts, hand crafted by Texas artisans, with a few surprises along the way. In addition, six events are scheduled throughout the year, to showcase a wide range of fine art and craft mediums and disciplines from across the state. Their annual "The Art in Fiber" invitational is one of their showcases. Two-thirds of the artists are from within a 150 mile radius of Round Top. A number of their artists are SAQA members as well as national award winners, many have appeared on various television shows, and many have been published in local, national, and international publications.
