From a time of using dyes to daub simple pictures on the walls of their caves, to breaking fragile stone, carving wood, or heating clay and glass they seem to have tried everything. And during a visit to Texas Hill Country during, June, they showed what they could do with the humble gourd.
The South West Gourd Show at the Kerrville Arts and Cultural Centre brings together more than 100 carved, painted and inlaid gourds by the best artists in the USA.
I had a look around it this morning and was astonished with the quality and beauty of their work. If you’re in town whatever you do don’t miss out.
