These five artists were chosen by last year’s guests from the 70 artists whose 115 works were on display. Over 500 guests voted for their favorite artist/work, and these five artists garnered the most votes.

Mary Hugill, an aspiring artist, was present at the show to appreciate the various paintings and hopefully learn from them.

“I want to study the little details,” said Hugill. “Seeing the artwork in person is so inspiring,”

Not only can you view the art, but it is also for sale, said Bob Bludhart, chairman of Fort Concho.

“So, if folks want to redecorate their house, now is the time to do it! There is some really good quality art here that folks can get for a good price. It benefits the Fort, and of course the artist,” said Bludhart.

The show will be open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-4, and Sunday, 1:30 – 4:30. Closed Mondays.
