Wimberley's reputation as an active artist community draws patrons both local and area who are interested in viewing and purchasing paintings, sculpture, photography and fine jewelry offered by members of the Art League. Repeating last year's success, fiber arts and needlecraft will also be shown. For those looking for those special holiday gifts, all art is for sale and all art is unique and original, with no reproductions of any kind offered.

Exhibiting the work of several dozen local artists, this event has become a holiday tradition in Wimberley. This year, approximately 600 items from more than 50 artists will be on sale. The relatively small Wimberley area is where many artists have chosen to live and work, and local residents as well as visitors look forward to the show.

The Holiday Show is a delightful way to find a special work to make a memorable gift lasting a lifetime... that is, if the buyer can bear to part with such chosen treasures.

The show was first held in 1993 at a local artist's studio. As attendance grew, it was moved to locations on Cypress Creek and in Woodcreek. After 1995, the show was held at the Senior Citizens Activity Center and has now moved to the Wimberley Community Center. The event has become a holiday tradition in Wimberley, exhibiting the work of over forty local artists with as many as over 100 works, including paintings, photography, sculpture, pottery, wood carvings, textile art, jewelry and glass.
