Paintings and sculpture from Texas artists have poured into the third annual Texas Spirit National Juried Art Competition and Show at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center.
But the talent represented is not restricted to Texas, but includes U.S. artists and an artist from Mexico who have qualified for the biggest annual Graham art show.
This year's entries include more sculpture than in the past, representing both classic and contemporary traditions. The judge is Mark Stewart, who is an architect and a gifted watercolorist.
Although the awards will be announced on June 22, the show will be on display through July 7 during the museum's regular hours Tuesday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Entries in the 2013 Texas National Spirit Art Competition and Show are on display at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center through July 7. The large still life of America s favorite fast foods by Kelly Ingleright-Telgenhoff of Weatherford is one of many original creations.
