They include oils, pastels, acrylics, watercolor, fiber, hand-blown glass, jewelry, sculptures, gourds, digitally enhanced photographs, wood turning and baskets, high quality prints as well as originals. Art on the Border grew from 14 artists in 2014 to 60+ in 2019. We are expecting 65+ this year. That list will be provided by end of May.
