Last night’s Bosque Art Center’s Patrons’ Preview was a shocker for Erath County artist Kathy Allen Tate as she won the center’s Jones Award ($5,000 purchase award) for her painting “Once Someone’s Dream”.
“I was in total shock …something I never expected. What an evening!” Tate said.
The national art exhibition and sale renowned for its quality showcases the work of both veteran artists and some talented newcomers to the show, with 175 pieces from over 100 artists.
