114 T hirteen years ago, Debbie and Gerald Tobola opened Copper Shade Tree Gallery, the oldest art gallery in Round Top, and added Fine Home gallery to their stable nine years later. This year, they streamlined and consolidated the two galleries into one home in Henkel Square, Copper Shade Tree. The gallery features the work of 80 artists, primarily with a Texas focus, with a third of the artists being national and/ or international award winners. The new space will showcase quarterly art openings and includes a worktable for copper artist Gerald to create and demonstrate his work. Copper Shade Tree, 102 Schumann Lane at Henkel Square, COPPER SHADE B ack-to-back exhibitions at Fayetteville's Red & White Gallery signal a promising debut and a showcase for a Texas master. Both artists call the Round Top area home. Watercolorist Linda Tibolla is new to the gallery's stable — an Elite Signature Member of the Watercolor Art Society-Houston who dazzles with images gleaned from Texas (a 19th-century doorway in Henkel Square, a rose garden in Navasota) and Santa Fe. Six weeks later, Red & White showcases pastels and drawings all about the land, from a talent who needs no introduction: William Anzalone. The retired University of Houston painting professor is known for his renditions of light falling on luminous fields, barns, and haystacks — images that conjure the timeless beauty of the Fayette County landscape Anzalone has known for four decades.
