Gainesville City Manager Barry Sullivan presented EIKON’s award for Technical Excellence to Sabrina Thiel for her piece “The Patriot”. This incredible, carved longhorn skull also won 1st place in the Three Dimensional category.
The GAVA True to the Colors Fall Art Exhibition continues through Sunday, September 23rd, so you can stop by the Historic Santa Fe Depot to see this intricately detailed carving along with several other amazing original art pieces.
EIKON sponsors several local organizations and events year-round that help support the youth of North Texas and our local communities.
This includes GAVA, which celebrates local artists of Cooke County and encourages local children and young adults to develop their artistic talents. In 2018, GAVA awarded a total of $5,000 to 10 graduating high school seniors from Cooke County who plan to major or minor in visual arts.
