Marble Falls is the gateway to the Highland Lakes in Central Texas.  It is the regional hub for more than 75,000 people living within a 20-mile radius.  Especially in the last two years, our area has continued to see a surge of population and economic growth.  The natural beauty of the Hill Country and lakes combine to make this area ideal for tourism, second homes, businesses, specialty shops and fine dining.  Marble Falls is located about an hour’s drive from Austin or San Antonio and approximately three hours from Dallas/Fort Worth or Houston.  Our area has top ranked resorts, golf courses and recreational opportunities, including many acclaimed wineries and state parks.  

    The Highland Lakes Creative Arts, “the arts”, is a new nonprofit organization whose vision is to foster and promote the creative and performing arts. We work to bring an inclusive collaboration together of communities, creative professionals, businesses, education entities and mentor programs to further all of the arts in the Texas Highland Lakes region. “the arts” is organizing “2016 Sculpture on Main” to feature Marble Falls as the centrally- located Arts Destination in Texas.  

    We invite you to submit your work for our year-long public exhibition.  The sculptures are installed on the Historic Main Street area of Marble Falls, which has wide medians and landscaped corners for ideal visibility.  The sculptures will be on loan, displayed and extensively marketed  for purchase.  The exhibit is open to all professional sculptors.  We provide  a color walking tour guide with photos of the sculptures, artist names, bios and pricing.  There will be a full day of sculpture celebration and demonstration, with an Exhibiting/Sales Gallery for artist “small works” and an Artist/Sponsor Reception.  Sculpture on Main offers an excellent opportunity for public exposure of your work. “the arts” marketing and promotion includes print media, websites and social media coverage, email blasts as well as private and public events.  The “Best in Show” selection will be designated the official logo for Sculpture on Main for a full year.   A nationally prominent judge will present awards as follows:  $2,000 for “Best of Show”, $1,000 “People’s Choice” and $500 for “Commendation Award”.  Entry fees are required with a $500 stipend offered for the selected entries.
