Inspire’s Juried Art Show 2016


Our 2016 Fundraiser & Juried Art Show took place on Thursday, April 7th at The Carver Community Cultural Center with the theme “Get Inspired for Fiesta.”

We would like to thank Ali James, Curator & Director of  Visitor Services at the Texas Capitol, for graciously accepting our invitation to be the Judge of this show.  Also a big THANK YOU to Mayor Ivy Taylor for selecting the “Mayor’s Choice” winner, and to our Board of Directors, Volunteers, Planning Committee members, Inspire Instructors/Staff and Participating Artists.  This event was a success because of you and all your hard work!

 We would like to invite everyone to visit The Carver, and see the wonderful artwork that comprises this year’s “Get Inspired for Fiesta” show.  The exhibit will be on display until Friday, April 29th.

Take a look at this year’s results!
