For a wonderful escape from the city, Boerne is a great place to experience the charm of the Texas Hill Country. This growing and thriving community boasts a variety of artists and galleries. But for fine art at its finest, a visit to Carriage House Gallery of Artists is in order.

Located in the heart of downtown Boerne at 110 Rosewood Avenue, Carriage House Gallery is a charming stone cottage, accented by deep burgundy awnings and attractive window boxes. Its warm and friendly atmosphere welcomes visitors to a diverse array of fine art in all manner of subject matter and styles. Founded in 2003, the gallery presently features works from its artist partners in a broad range of media. It’s been voted “Best of the Best” art gallery in Boerne for the past two years and for many good reasons. Guests to the gallery are always greeted with a smile and a warm welcome by an inviting artist as opposed to a general curator. Whether you are simply browsing, or are in the market for artwork, the service is second-to-none by an individual who is deeply familiar with the art on display.

The media in which these artists craft their finished pieces range from oils to watercolors, from cold wax to fused glass, from scratchboard to sculpture, and from photography to mixed media. And there’s even more to see! Visitors are welcome to enjoy the various styles during regular business hours or to attend an upcoming Second Saturday Art Beat event. Happening on the second Saturday of each month, Carriage House Gallery hosts this event complete with fine wine, hors-d’oeuvres, and live music, making the visitor’s experience one of exhilaration. Finding yourself immersed in the new and exciting artworks by the very artists you follow is intoxicating itself, let alone the myriad of sounds, sights, and tastes that perfectly complement those pieces. Not only that but if you’re looking for a special work of art, the gallery’s artists can be commissioned to create the perfect piece to add to your collection!

In November, the gallery will be celebrating its 15th anniversary, and it’s welcoming many long-time patrons as well as newcomers to Boerne to view the fine art displays. It may be a cool and wet fall in the Texas Hill Country, but the atmosphere and imagery in the gallery will be warm and inviting! To celebrate the gallery’s anniversary, it is offering special pricing of 15% off any art purchase during the Second Saturday Art Beat event on November 10. You may also register for the monthly drawing of a $25 gift certificate, too! A great time of year to add art to your collection, November’s gallery hours, as well as that month’s Second Saturday Art Beat, will usher in the excitement of the season ahead.

For the month of December, the gallery will be celebrating the holidays with its traditional miniature art show and sale, aptly entitled “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Those looking for small gifts and fine works of art for that special someone need look no further. This wonderful event runs the entire month. This could be the start of something special for you or your loved ones with the beginnings of a collection you can lovingly add to over the years! Likewise, if a friend or family member loves miniature works of art, this event will be a great resource for you to support them in that love.
