SAN MARCOS, Texas – The latest community art exhibit and a seasonal installation of snowflakes created from recycled materials take visitors to Price Center Galleries on a colorful and inspired journey this holiday season.

Fused Recycled Glass Snowflake – Gerald Kurten

Nearly 60 artists from the region have chosen one or two of their favorite works for this new eclectic art exhibition featuring more than 90 works.

The gift or the art celebrates the ability of art to inform, transform and connect us. From traditional to quirky subjects, media and techniques, this show offers a delightful look beyond traditional winter and holiday imagery.

Despite unusually warm temperatures for the season, it is possible to see snowflakes in San Marcos. The Centre’s latest community art collaboration has produced more than a dozen snowflake creations made from recycled materials. Fifteen local designers, including two children, made the skilful crystal creations.

The gift of art and the unique Snowflake installation is hanging in all galleries on the centre’s first floor until January 8. Many works are for sale and a portion of the proceeds supports the ongoing artistic efforts of the center.

The rotating art exhibitions are created, organized, and directed by the Price Center’s Arts Committee and funded in part through a grant from the San Marcos Arts Commission.
