Susan Baker Logrbrinck

Straight from the heart of this year’s Featured Artist
 
“Where the Beautiful Bluebonnets Grow”
(Title taken from the Willie Nelson song “Beautiful Texas”)
Free Motion Quilted Textile Art
36″x24″
“Texas is a land of persistance. I have often wondered how it ever was settled with it’s harsh and ever-changing weather.  Who stopped here in the sweltering summer pre air conditioning days and said “this is it!”? But there is a spirit here that is undeniably eternal.  That spirit is embodied in this piece, “Where the Beautiful Bluebonnets Grow”. The longhorn, the armadillo, the painted bunting, the monarch butterfly, the Indian blankets and of course, the bluebonnets. Each has their story to tell. A story of lovely, rugged enduringness. A story of how you can be tough as nails and still be so soulfully beautiful. And when they all come together in one scene? Well, it’s undeniably perfect.” Susan Baker Logrbrinck

    History of Boerne Art Waddle

    Art Waddle is Boerne’s premier community art show and sale. It’s a festive outdoor event held in downtown Boerne, TX.

    The Art Waddle is part of Boerne’s commitment to the arts. It’s also part of the trend toward fun, informal celebration of painting, sculpture, glassworks, and more. People stroll at their own pace, chatting with artists, making friends and enjoying the day, perhaps partaking of a refreshment offered by one of the breweries or restaurants.

    The Waddle was created in the “Flats,” Boerne’s funkiest neighborhood. Over the last decade the Art Waddle’s growth and success has shifted the location of the event to the downtown historical shopping district.

    It’s a place for the creative side of Boerne. 
    Named after the ducks that populate Boerne’s Cibolo Creek, the Art Waddle is organized by Hill Country Council for the Arts and Events Off Main. All proceeds are donated to the Cibolo Center for Conservation for Summer Art Camp Scholarships. There is no admission fee to the Waddle.
