Point kicks off 2012 membership drive


The Hill Country Arts Foundation has kicked off its 2012 membership drive and advertising sales for the 2012 Point Theatre playbill. Membership and advertising funds help the 53-year-old nonprofit organization defray the costs of providing quality theatre, art and educational opportunities to the Hill Country community.

"We invite area residents to become new members and we encourage current members to renew their memberships.

Membership is vital to the success of HCAF and it is an investment in the cultural arts in our community. Plus, it's tax deductible," noted Brenda Harrison, HCAF executive director.

Membership benefits include recognition in Point Theatre playbills, invitations to opening receptions at the Point Gallery and Point Theatre, advance notice of season pass ticket and discounts on adult art workshops.

Harrison said that advertising in the Point playbill is an excellent way to promote a business and support The Point. "Your ad will be seen by over 15,000 people when the playbill is distributed to audience members at every performance," according to Harrison. The deadline to submit an ad is Jan. 30.

The Point has a full schedule of six plays and nine gallery exhibits planned for 2012. Theatre productions include the farce "Sex Please, We're Sixty," Feb. 10-Mar. 3; and "The Spitfire Grill," a musical, Mar. 23-Apr. 21. In the summer, The Point will produce two musicals "Doo-Wop Wed Widing Hood" and "Hank Williams:
Lost Highway."

Rounding out the theatre season are the fall production of "An Evening of Comedies" and the Christmas show "Dashing Through the Snow."

The Gallery opens 2012 with the "Texas Federation of Fiber Artists," a juried exhibit Feb. 4-26 and the indoor-outdoor exhibit "Sticks and Stones," Mar. 16-Apr. 27. In May, "Illumination" will correspond with the Hunt Centennial celebration.

Summer exhibits include "Destinations," the works of Texas college students; and "Art Camp Museum," the art of HCAF Young Artist Campers, followed by "National Ceramic."

In the fall, HCAF's Friday painters will display their works in "TGIF" while "Pie in the Sky," the gallery's benefit dinner is set for Oct. 25.

The gallery winds up its season with "ArtMart" featuring unique holiday gifts made by local artists.

In addition to exhibits, the Gallery offers a full schedule of year-round workshops in various art disciplines.
