New Art Space to Open in Downtown Taylor, Texas




On May 3rd, the Taylor Artist Guild will open the doors to 120ART, a new gallery, retail and art space for the exhibition and sale of local fine art and fine craft.

Located at 120 W. Second Street (corner of Talbot and Second), 120ART will be in the Titsworth Building, formerly the RoLaine Furniture store, purchased and remodeled by local artist/architect Judy Blundell of Living Line Design Solutions. 

The building will serve as a space for monthly exhibits for TAG members, a retail gallery and will provide workshop and studio space for local artists---a space that is all about the passionate pursuit of creative expression.

The presence of the new gallery gives Taylor residents and visitors an opportunity to experience local art as well as commission and purchase original fine art and fine crafts, both traditional and contemporary.

For more information about hours, exhibitions or becoming a Taylor Artist Guild member (with special privileges), visit our website at www.taylorartistguild.org or e-mail us at taylorartistguild@gmail.com.   

Local artists who want to submit work for possible exhibition should also contact TAG.

Pin Up show - Thursday, April 17 - May 4, 2014 in downtown Taylor, Texas

Pin Up
An Exploration of Work Created With and Drawn on Paper

Miguel Verastique, a member of the Taylor Artist Guild, came up with The Challenge--

Make a piece of art (any kind) out of one piece of re-purposed photographic backdrop paper donated by local Taylor, Texas photographer Ace Tobak. 

Each artist was given a piece of paper measuring at least 6 x 3' and up to 9 x 30'.

The only rule is that the artist had to use ALL the paper that was given to them.

Some suggestions made by Miguel were to cut the paper into smaller pieces, make one large image, use the paper for paper-maché, turn it into a backdrop for original photos, etc. Things could aso be added to the paper if the artist wanted to.

Here's what John Bielss, one member of the Guild is making from his paper.  He took the "Pin Up" theme literally and turned his paper into a 3-D piece of art.  Can you say "B-52 Bomber?"
