In keeping with many years of tradition, Sherman Art League's Annual Show and Sale was held in the Municipal Building Ballroom in conjunction with Sherman's ArtFest.

Friday, September 20 for SAL.

Saturday, September 21 for SAL and ArtFest.

In CELEBRATION of the ARTS, and SHERMAN'S designation as a CULTURAL ARTS DISTRICT, a  reception and commentary with


was held Thursday, September 19th in the Municipal Ballroom.

We were pleased to have a good attendance the night of the reception and a large show of support of the "ARTS" during ArtsFest.  Many came through and took the time to view all of the media with much interest.   Children of all ages pointed out features of the pieces to their parents.  I encouraged some to touch the canvas so they would know the feeling of actual media rather then the machine productions in the stores.

The Annual Show is a culmination of hard work and all artists are welcome to enter.  Austin College has been very instrumental in gaining Sherman's status as a Cultural Arts District Designation.  We hope with their work and planning the show will be even larger next year.   This show is in the past and now we look forward to preparing for 2020!

A big Thank You to all who attended.

Linda McAnaney

President of Sherman Art League
