First Friday Art Walk visitors meet 'Old Masters' tonight

Would you know this artistic icon if you met on the street today? It is Vincent Van Gogh in an 1889 self portrait found in the National Gallery of Art. But tonight Highland Art Guild members portraying famous artists or their subjects will be strolling Marble Falls Main Street during the First Friday Art Walk, 5-8 p.m., tonight, Friday, Nov. 3.

Do your artistic dreams include meeting one of the “Old Masters” face to face? Tonight is your opportunity.

Friday, Nov. 3, is another Marble Falls First Friday Art Walk and artists of the Highland Arts Guild Gallery will greet visitors to their Fall Show & Sale Preview as the masters and their subjects from artistic annals.

Tour the gallery at 318 Main Street with the likes of Rosie the Riveter, Vincent Willem van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa or Johannes Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring. Or, meet them along Main Street when they take a stroll. But look closely to identify them, you may find they are keeping up with the times and fashion.

In addition to new art, visitors can enjoy refreshments while browsing extra works of art, a Christmas gift table and a red tag sale on some of the artist's gallery pieces.

All up and down Marble Falls Main Street from 5-8 p.m., propritors of galleries and shops welcome folks who want to take their time after working hours to feed those artistic dreams. Refreshments, sometimes including a glass of wine or a new sweet or savory treat, feed the more real-word appetites.

Don't be surprised to find artwork at any shop on Main Street, but take the galleries that began the tour.

At the north end of the street, across from the guild gallery, is Galleries at Pecan Creek in Old Oak Square, 309 Main Street, where guest hosts are Ronda and Earl Bishop and Patty and Biff Miller. Down south, visit Marta Stafford Fine Art, 200 Main Street, where pieces from a Dia de los Muertos exhibit will still be shown.
