Hallettsville couple win art awards


Hallettsville artists Blanche and Roy Cavarretta have again won awards at the annual Southwest Fine Art Gourd Fine Art Show held in Kerrville May 14 - July 3.

Blanche placed second for an entry titled “Beep! Beep!” in the Southwestern Category, and Roy placed third for his gourd “Three Dancers” in the Southwest Category. Roy also won first place with his gourd “Strong Medicine” in the Sculptural Category.

“It is an honor to win these awards since it is a national show and we must be juried to enter,” Roy said. “I am excited to have won.”

The show began while many businesses were still closed for COVID-19. Blanche explained, “It was very rewarding to be part of a show during this time since all of our shows for the rest of the year have been cancelled.” To check the times to visit, go to www.kacc.com or call 830-895-2911.
