Scultptfest is over. The next big art festival for Haven Meadows this fall will be Art Outside.
Check out the photos from Sculptfest 2010 and expect to see an even large art installation at Art Ouside this fall.
Art Outside 2010 @ Apache Pass!
The 6th annual Art Outside will take place once again at the beautiful Apache Pass festival grounds near Rockdale, Texas this October. The site features hundreds of acres of grassy camping areas and lush pecan trees scattered throughout. There will be facilities for showering, bathrooms, potable water, communal commons, and access to charging stations for your various electronic devices.
Sculptfest is held annually in the fall
and will be held this year on September 19th at:
Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum
605 Robert E. Lee Rd.
Sculptfest is fun for all ages, featuring all kinds of sculpture (most is available for purchase) in many different mediums, such as stone, concrete, terra-cotta, and bronze. Many of the sculptors are demonstrating their techniques and all exhibiting artists are on-site to answer your questions or tell you how a certain work of art came into being. Sculptfest also features a Children’s Corner so that children may enjoy the wonders of creating with clay.
You may also meander among the over 130 sculptures of Charles Umlauf, scattered throughout the museum and xeriscaped grounds that also feature oak trees and a pond.
Haven Meadows is happy to once again participate in this event and we hope to see you there!

It seems that our species is going through a bit of a transitional period. The old way dictated that the individual would evolve at the whim of the collective. The new way seems to suggest that the collective will evolve at the whims of the individuals. This transition is causing much inner turmoil in people. Most carry a deeply unsettled feeling, with an unknown source, in their gut as they try to endure their mundane lives. As though the great mind might be holding us accountable for it’s mental health.
Art is our vessel. It is our angle and our vehicle. We intend to help facilitate this transition by altering the public perception of art so that those who are unfamiliar with the concept, can come to understand art as a shamanic practice. The most intense art is the expression of the seekers journey within. It is the product of his soul searching and the answers to his questions in the form of greater questions. The evolution of the species is bringing about the social changes that lead to social turmoil. The most potent source of this turmoil stems from the unanswered questions the population is conditioned to ignore for the sake of being productive in a consumer society, standing on the cornerstone of a profit based economy. The seeker mentality must be recalled from obscurity and enshrined in the frontal lobe. The artists of the world, in all their forms and capacities, with the seeker mentality as their guide to the shamanic practice of living life itself, can become the tip of the spear that will bring the Hydra down, and liberate the collective consciousness from its current bondage. And so we will grow…
