Dalhart Windberg, Artist

Put April 18th on your calendar! Nationally known Texas artist, Dalhart Windberg will be sharing his artistic talent and knowledge right here in Tyler County. The Tyler County Art League will join the Emporium for the Arts to make this event happen.

Born in 1933, Windberg has spent many years journeying far beyond his Texas home, recording on canvas his most interesting discoveries and fondest recollection. His subjects are as varied as life itself. From the awakening aura of a Rocky Mountain snowfall to the sleepy silence of cypress woodlands, or the rustic beauty of the Texas Hill country, the land has been reborn by his palette knife and brush.

Windberg's Woodville visit will offer both artists and collectors the opportunity to watch him create an original painting as well as listen to the lessons learned during Dalhart's artistic journey. The event is scheduled from 1-4 pm at the Art Emporium located at 212 W. Bluff next to the Art Gallery in downtown Woodville. Tickets are $8 for TCAL members and $10 for non-members. Windberg will be available to sign your art books and Windberg prints, etc. Artist will be able to purchase art materials from the new Windberg art line.

For information or tickets, call 409-283-2788 or stop by the Art Gallery. Only 90 tickets will be sold for this event.
