We are now open every First Saturday, 11am-5pm!
Our annual art conference will kick off this summer with a “mini” version in July! We are offering a variety of workshops, led by trusted and experienced instructors. Our full version in 2022, will include art talks, demonstrations and more!
Our Members Gallery displays art work exclusively from Lost Pines Art League members, who come from around Texas and beyond. You will always see a wide variety of styles and mediums. Over 80 works of art are displayed on both floors of the Members Exhibit, and new work is rotated every three months. So come in and enjoy the collection from local and regional artists.
Summer in the City- Postponed to June 19th!!
Summer in the City is a family focused event slated for the first weekend in June, the first public event to be hosted, post pandemic, by the City of Bastrop.
Summer In the City is planned with the intent of drawing in the citizens of Bastrop, giving them the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful downtown district, shopping our local artisans, and appreciate their fellow Bastropian’s company along with the multiple activities and live music planned for adults and children.
The Art Center will have a Community table in the Bastrop Library Parking Lot, where kids and grown ups, alike, can create 2 beautiful projects that will be put on display at a location in town- TBA.
The first is a Woven Colors Mural, symbolizing the woven fabric of our Community. The second is Bird Wings, honoring Bird City Bastrop, with individually painted feathers to be mounted as wings for the perfect photo moments! Board Member, Louise Placek will lead the activities. Stop by anytime between 11am-5pm.
