Gallery Gift Shop
Our first Holiday Gift Sale was a success. Thank you to all who came in to shop and support our local artists!
Although the seasonal items are now gone, there is still plenty to peruse including paintings, drawings, shawls, gloves, books, jewelry, music, and more!
Our Giving Tree is still up if you would like to donate to WCA to help us purchase supplies for our new performance space. Stop in or give us a call!
Our third Festival of Books was a success! Guests were able to peruse the published works of authors from all over the state while enjoying performances by “King of Cajun” Jo-El Sonnier and Winnsboro’s own Alter Dance Studio. The morning session also included a children’s literature panel as well as Mr. Sonnier signing his new children’s book.
The afternoon session included keynote speaker, Michael Merschel, noted author and friend of the late Kate Park, to whom this festival was dedicated. The afternoon closed with a mystery panel led by Winnsboro native and award-winning author Melissa Lenhardt.
This Festival would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors:
-Chip and Terry Mathews
-The Bowery Book Club
-Nestle Water North America
-Texas Commission on the Arts
-The Mrs. A.D. Francis Endowment Fund at East Texas Communities Foundation (on behalf of Winnsboro Community Foundation)
