 Our most popular part of the festival - the world famous SILENT AUCTION - will still be held For THREE DAYS!!! Between August 12-14 at 3:00 pm, you can bid on the great items you've come to expect. To keep gallery traffic to a minimum, you may bid by proxy and call the gallery at 903-640-2196 during normal business hours. Auction items are set up in the gallery for your viewing pleasure. Come by and visit. You may also click HERE for virtual viewing!


During the month of August, our festival-themed art exhibit - Art Du Soleil - will be on display so you can find beautiful artwork for sale in addition to our auction.


  Beautiful hand-painted wine glasses and hand-decorated wine bags will be on sale beginning the week of July 1 and remain on sale in the gallery through August 14.
