--Boerne Professional Artists (BPA) is hosting its 20th Annual Parade of Artists on April 9th and 10th, 2016. The 'Parade' is a festive weekend event held each spring which attracts art enthusiasts from around the country to visit various art venues in Boerne. It is a self-guided tour of local galleries, studios and “other venues” principally located along the Hill Country Mile and Historic districts of downtown Boerne.

Over 30 local artists will be featured at various venues in this year’s 'Parade' with a diversity of media ranging from paintings in oils, watercolor, pastels and acrylics, to bronze and relief sculpture, jewelry, photography, pottery, fused glass, encaustics, mixed media and more. In addition to the established Boerne art galleries where more than a hundred artists of national and international reputation will be represented, several downtown businesses have offered space for artists’ displays, while others are showing their works in their own studios.

Free of charge, as always, the 'Parade' opens on Saturday, April 9th from 10am until 8pm with wine and hors d'oeuvres provided at many of the venues that evening. On Sunday, April 10th, the venues will be open from 11am until 4pm. Several artists will be demonstrating their individual techniques at various times throughout the event.

In addition to the 'Parade', BPA's other art events are widely advertised and attended, which makes Boerne well known for its commitment to the arts and demonstrates how a thriving arts community contributes to the cultural and economic well-being of the area.
