The Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council has some exciting news, three new exhibits will be opening across Stephenville the first week of November.

The Town & Country Quilt Guild will have an exhibit at the River North Gallery Nov. 4-Dec. 15 with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11.

Angel Escobar will open an exhibit at the Stephenville Public Library that will run from Nov. 6-Dec. 15.

Escobar is a senior at Dublin High School and has many hobbies including basketball, soccer, running, playing piano, reading, writing poetry and creating works of art.

“I have been painting and drawing ever since I could hold a paintbrush or pencil,” Escobar said. “My mom would put me to doodle or splatter paint to distract me while she would clean the little RV we lived in. As I got older I kept drawing and painting as a hobby. My inspiration, I have to say, is my mom. She is the one that taught me how to paint and draw. She also taught me to use my talents for God and not for anyone else. I always try to dedicate my drawings or paintings to a verse from the Bible.”

Shelby Culberson will open an exhibit at the Stephenville Senior Citizens Center that will run from Nov. 6-Dec. 30.

Culberson received a BFA in studio art from Tarleton State University this year and won several awards for her art during her time there.

She plans to further her education by pursuing a master of fine arts degree.

“These are all amazing artists of all ages and mediums,” said CTFAC Executive Director Julie Crouch Smith. “We are thrilled to feature them all.”
