Wrapped in Wonder
Exhibit Dates: November 10, 2021 – January 7, 2022
Curated by Round Rock Arts
We asked our local and area artist community to show us what sparks wonder and joy in their imaginations, and show it to us through their art. That collection of joyously imaginative artwork comprises our “Wrapped in Wonder” art exhibit. With the holiday season in mind, this affordable art is your chance to give a gift of distinction with one-of-a-kind art made by local and area artists!
Artist Lisa Carson transforms small shadowboxes into fine art dioramas that are adorable and cozy scenes, including a 3D miniature holiday reading hook with a tiny flannel futon invites to imagine if you were 3 inches tall. Artist Tanya Davis offers up a menagerie of steampunk animals fashioned with polymer clay that are a mix between a sculpture and a fine art toy. Artist Mozelle Marks shows off street photography that is digitally modified into silhouette art that includes a portrait of the Stevie Ray Vaughan sculpture in Downtown Austin. More locally, digital artist Lisa Zinna’s artworks mix photography, digital collage and shiny resin — and sometimes a dash of glitter–with imagery of the beloved Round Rock Water Tower, among other subject matter. Fine art jewelry, photography, paintings, mixed media art and more are available at a variety of affordable price points during this exhibit.
Give a gift of distinction with one-of-a-kind art made by local and area artists by shopping from our “Wrapped in Wonder” exhibit!
Thank you to our gallery partners from the visual arts nonprofit Round Rock Arts for curating this vibrant exhibit!
T’is the Season for Sugar Art
Starting Tuesday, December 7th
Featuring Capital Confectioners
We want to add some extra razzle dazzle to the holiday season in the Downtowner Gallery. And so, on Tuesday, December 7th, we will be unveiling a sweet spectacle thanks to the creative talents of Capital Confectioners! Part sugar art, part take-something-sweet-home-to-eat, this holiday attraction, in all of its floor-to-ceiling glory, will be on view through the holidays.
About Capital Confectioners: Capital Confectioners, a greater Austin cake club and non-profit organization, was formed to provide people who are interested in sugar arts the opportunity to share and network with others who have similar interests. Each year, Capital Confectioners hosts one of the largest cake shows in the United States, so save the date for February 27-28th, 2021 at the Round Rock Sports Center! www.capitalconfectioners.com
