Abbey Road Ducks by Kathy Carey
The Art Waddle is Boerne's premier community art show and sale. It's a festive outdoor event held on neighborhood sidewalks and yards on the second Saturday in May. This year the Waddle falls on Saturday, May 12.
The Art Waddle is part of Boerne's commitment to the arts. It's also part of the trend toward fun, informal celebration of painting, sculpture, glassworks, pottery and more. People stroll streets at their own pace, chatting with artists, making friends and enjoying the day, perhaps partaking of a refreshment offered by one of the artists or host yards.
The Waddle is held in the "Flats," Boerne's funkiest neighborhood. Over the last decade the Flats has become a diverse, reinvigorated zone where modest older residences mingle with new and imaginative architecture. It's a place for the creative side of Boerne.
Named after the ducks that populate Boerne's Cibolo Creek, the Art Waddle is organized by friends of the arts. All proceeds collected from our Waddle Artists are donated to the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm Art Camp 2018. There is no admission fee to the Waddle, though waddlers are encouraged to contribute to the cause..
My wonderful and insightful husband Michael Morton and I created THE ART WADDLE in 2013 ( a neighborhood art walk) and I now continue to manage it with my friend Linda Manning, an experienced potter. Please take a moment to view Linda's work on her web site Thrown In a Fit (http://www.throwninafit.com).
