Texas Authors at the Authors' Showcase Coordinates with Winnsboro Fine Art Market, Sat., Nov. 3

Anita Williams - Friday, October 26, 2012


The Winnsboro Center for the Arts (WCA) will host seven Texas authors at its second annual Authors' Showcase, Saturday, November 3rd in conjunction with the Fine Art Market.

We love the Fine Art Market and having an author event is a natural partnership, says event organizer, Maryann Miller. “We have authors coming from Tyler and Dallas, as well as from right here in Winnsboro, and this will be a great time for people coming to the market to meet some Texas authors and pick up a book or two as a gift.”

There will be a wide range of books available, from fiction to nonfiction. Marvin Mayer from Tyler attended last year, and he is bringing his latest children's book, The Day X Ran Away. Marvin enjoyed the event last year and was one of the first to sign up again. “It was nice to meet the families that came through and talk to the children,” Mayer says. "It is wonderful to see them get excited about reading.

The other authors who will be there are Scott Meador, Sharon Ellsberry, Patricia PacJac Carroll, Janice Olson, Kellie Coates Gilbert, and Deborah Chelette Wilson. There will be more children's books from Ellsberry, and Christian Romance from Janice Olson, who is a contributor to Chicken Soup for the Soul and Journeys in Faith.

Scott Meador has a background in law enforcement, as well as having served as an Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) tech in the U.S. Army, and he brings all that experience to the character of Special Agent Paul Lott in the action adventure The Lott Effect.

Kellie Coates Gilbert is a former legal investigator and trial paralegal who writes stories about messy lives, and eternal hope. Her novel, Mother of Pearl, is published by Abingdon Press. “I live in Texas, am a Christian, and love the open road,” says Patricia PacJac Carroll, author of Liberty Belle. “I lead a pretty quiet life, but my stories are loaded with adventure, fun, and clean romance.’

Winnsboro resident, Deborah Chelette Wilson, MHR, is a Texas Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor and Survivor and Trauma Expert. She has worked extensively as a counselor for different agencies before she started Country Pathways, PLLC a counseling and education company in 2005.

She is well known in Northeast Texas for working with women and children suffering from the long term and misunderstood impact of stress and trauma. She will have a variety of books for adults and children, including her memoir  Woman on the Edge: A Journey Toward Soul-fullness.

The event will run from 9:30 in the morning until 4 that afternoon, and the authors are looking forward to visiting with people who love books.

November 5-6, 2011 in the historic district

Here's an invitation from Mary Smith to art lovers who want to participate in the Fine Art Market. . .

Volunteering is about making new friends, mingling with old ones and having fun.  A great opportunity to do that is to help with the Winnsboro Fine Art Market in November.

The Art Market is a juried art festival held in the Cultural Arts District of Downtown Winnsboro November 5th and 6th, 2011. After a wildly successful Art Market in 2009, an even bigger and better event is being planned for this fall. Events like this can only be successful if talented people volunteer their time and energy.

Volunteers can choose to dedicate as little as four hours to the event or be intricately involved in the year-round planning.  Do you have special talents?  Put them to good use by volunteering.

“We worked hard during the first Art Market, met many new and interesting people and had such a great time, it never seemed like work,” commented Joyce Hillebrand.  Hillebrand and her husband, Mike Tate, worked as a volunteers during the 2009 Art Market and Hillebrand is now the Volunteer Coordinator for the 2011 Art Market. 

All volunteers receive Art Market T-shirts, a pass to the VIP Hospitality Room during the Art market, an invitation to the wrap-up party, and recognition for their service.

If you’d like to be part of the fun, the first meeting of volunteers will be held Saturday, July 9th at 11:00 a.m. in the conference room at the First National Bank, 315 North Main Street, Winnsboro, Texas.

Pizza and drinks will be served.  For more information please contact Joyce Hillebrand, joyce@winnsboroart.com, 903-763-2050 or Mary Smith, mary@winnsboroart.com, 903-342-3438, or visit the Art Market website at www.winnsboroart.com.  RSVP’s would be appreciated.

The Winnsboro Fine Art Market is a project of the Winnsboro Main Street Partnership, Inc., a non-profit corporation whose mission is to support the development of successful and thriving private sector businesses in the Downtown Historic District and throughout the City of Winnsboro.
