World is Lakeway seashell collector’s oyster

 

An ocean of passion is evident in Ronald Carter’s seashell collection on display through June 29 at Lakeway Activity Center.

Carter has been an avid amateur seashell collector or “conchologist” for nearly 60 years.

The Lakeway resident’s interest began at the age of 7, in Pittsburgh of all places. In 1957, his mother brought him a small souvenir box of shells from a trip to Florida. Although living nowhere near the ocean, his passion and interest in shells was firmly set that day and continued to grow as he read books on seashells and visited museums. The annual family vacation at Sea Isle, N.J., gave him the opportunity to practice his shell collecting hobby.

Carter’s fascination with shells never went away. His collection continued to grow over the years as he bought and traded shells to include those of great rarity, beauty and interest. He now has an assortment of several thousand shells representing a portion of the 100,000-plus species known to exist in the world.

His passion in this field led him to volunteer as a docent in the malacology department of the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There he had the opportunity to introduce many children to the world of exotic shells through the use of thought-provoking stories.

After more than 40 years of work in the Houston area oil and gas industry, Carter is semi-retired. He and his wife, Beverly, reside in Lakeway and enjoy their boat on the lake whenever possible. Both of their grown children and four grandchildren live in the Austin area.

The additional time he has now is used to fully embrace this fulfilling hobby. He hopes to make travel plans to exotic locations and expand his collection even more.

Lakeway Activity Center is at 105 Cross Creek. The display is available for viewing from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

For information, call 512-261-1010.

 

   

Former Parks & Wildlife illustrator,

Marine to show at City Hall Art Gallery

 

Nature will come to life at Lakeway City Hall Art Gallery when Linda Wells displays her paintings from May 14 through June 15.

The exhibit may be viewed during regular office hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at Lakeway City Hall, 1102 Lohmans Crossing.

A love of nature’s beauty is what inspires Wells to paint.

The subtle colors and light of winter or the vibrant screaming reds of autumn are a thrill to her. She enjoys painting “en Plein Air,” outdoors on location, which allows her to get a better sense and atmosphere of a scene than working from photos alone. Although versatile and skilled in most media, she is comfortable with oils and pastels and moves back and forth between the two.

Wells studied art at Victoria College and Texas Academy of Art in Houston, and she continues to improve with study and experimentation. 

Though Wells spent almost 25 years as an artist and illustrator, nine of those at the Texas Parks and Wildlife department, she only strayed from Texas for three years while in the Marine Corps. Although Laguna Beach, Calif. was a tempting place to settle after leaving the service, Texas drew her home.

Wells is a longtime Lakeway resident, having lived here with husband, Fred, since 1990. Several of her paintings of the Lakeway area are featured in Lew Carlson’s book, “Lakeway: Hill Country Community,” a history of our area. 

See more of Wells’ work at the annual Bunkhouse Gallery Show in the spring, the Austin Pastel Society’s annual juried member exhibition, in venues around Lakeway and by appointment in her home studio overlooking Lake Travis in Lakeway.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

 

The Lake Travis Community Library has recently launched the new program 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. The program is part of a national campaign that aims to set a foundation for education and life-long reading skills. Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen language skills and build vocabulary - two important tools for beginning to learn.

 

“We have hundreds of children attend our story times and programs at the library every week, but we want to encourage reading at home as well,” said Lake Travis Community Library Director Morgan McMillian. “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a great way to encourage and reward early readers. We know that strong language and literacy skills pay off later in life!”

 

LeAnna Hart recently registered her son, three year old Cash, in the program.

 

"We are a library family. In our house, we always say that we love to read because it’s good for the brain,” said LeAnna Hart. “And more than that, reading is an important developmental life skill that I want my children to learn early."


Children who are not yet in kindergarten and their parents can simply keep track of how many books they read and earn prizes for every 100-book milestone. The books can be read together or individually, listened to on audiobook or at a story time, read online, and the same book can read multiple times. Informational fliers and logs are available in the Children’s Room. Prizes include stickers, a Sonic ice cream cone, a library tote bag, a free book, a library picture frame, and a t-shirt. Register at the library anytime to participate.

 

The 1,000 Books Foundation, which initiated the program in 2013, is a nonprofit public charity with a mission “to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and to encourage parent and child bonding through reading.”

 

“We want to encourage children to be lifelong learners and readers,” said McMillian. “The 1,000 Books program is designed to engage and motivate families while building bright futures for our youngest generation. Our expert librarians are always available to help with book recommendations. While 1,000 books may seem daunting, reading only three books a day will result in a total of 1,095 books read in a year.”

 

Please contact the library for more information at 263-2885 or visit www.laketravislibrary.org.  All library programs are free and open to the public.

 

 

 

 

Judie Bordic

 

Artist Judie Bordic will exhibit her work at the Lake Travis Community Library during the month of May. Bordic grew up in eastern Pennsylvania and moved to the Houston area in the 1970s. She completed her nursing education with an MSN at the University of Texas Health Science Center – Houston. Around this time, she also began to pursue an interest in drawing and painting. As she developed her technique, she explored fiber arts, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting as well as marbling and mixed-media. After much experimenting with various art forms, she became fascinated with Chinese calligraphy and watercolor. Chinese painting and calligraphy distinguish themselves from other cultural arts because they emphasize motion and are charged with dynamic life. This vibrant and nature based process became her primary focus and passion, which is often evident in her mixed-media pieces as well. ...Read on
