2017 New Year Inspiration at the Hill Country Arts Foundation

This year a record six Gallery VIII artists and partners attended the annual January art retreat at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, TX! Marie Renfro, Maryanne Reeves, Martha Rea Baker, Deborah Shannon, Donna Shuford and former partner, Carmen Haggard enjoyed ten days of uninterrupted studio time along with eleven additional artists.

The Hill Country Arts Foundation mounted an exhibition of work created by the seventeen artists, known by the title AWOL, Artists Without Limits, in the Duncan-McAshen Visual Arts Center on the HCAF campus.

We will post more work completed by the artists this year in the weeks ahead.
