Frontier Times art show benefit Saturday

Posted in:

Just in time for early holiday shopping, the Frontier Times Museum will hold its annual art show fundraiser in Bandera County’s old 1881 jail-house on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Fall Festival and Market will offer shoppers artwork from local and Texas artists, including folk art, also pottery, jewelry and a variety of collectibles.

Music, food and even a fire spinner will be on hand, and visitors will have the chance to tour the historic jailhouse as well, which is located on the 12th Street extension near Highway 16 in Bandera, across from the Bandera American Legion Post 157 Hall at 205 12th St.

“We wanted to have a little fun with this year’s show, so we brought in an eclectic mix of artwork and treasures for the discerning shopper to choose from,” explained the museum’s Executive Director Rebecca Norton, “To serenade shoppers will be Lee Harmon and David Wayne. We’re also excited to be welcoming Shawn Andrews, a talented fire spinner who travels to Renaissance Faires across the country.”

Proceeds from the festival will help support the museum’s education programs.

Among the other finds in the show will be handmade wool items from Suzoo’s Wool Works, locally made pottery by Mary Pipes, Vicky Phillips, and Raina Guzman, jewelry by Elaine Lunde, and paintings by fan favorite Andi Davenport and new artist Logan Miles.

Judith Pannebaker will transform the old sheriff’s office into an antique marketplace, and Spirits of Texas will have a pop-up shop at the jail offering Texas-made goodies and collectibles.

Katie’s Kitchen, The Village Toy Shop, Cowboy Corner, and Beckie’s Basement offering vintage wares and artwork also will have mini shops inside the jail.
