Kerrville Art Club’s judged art exhibition opens today at the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center. The event will continue through March 28.

A reception and awards ceremony will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, and the public is invited to attend.

There is no charge for admission.

Well-known artist and musician Ben Beckendorff — son of renowned artist Charles Beckendorff — will serve as judge for the show. 

“Ben has created thousands of art pieces in several different mediums making him extremely qualified to judge this competition,” a spokesman for the KAC said in a press release. “He is the owner of the Beckendorff Gallery in Fredericksburg, which was started by his father.”

The Kerrville Art Club has a membership consisting of many artists in a variety of mediums. The show will feature artworks not previously shown in a KAC show. 

“Six genres promise to delight and excite those in attendance,” the spokesman said.
