Lake Travis Community Library

The Lake Travis Community Library will showcase
the paintings of local artist Sandi Boston in the month of
January. In the same spirit that writers are advised to “Write
what you know,” painter Sandi Boston, an artist with deep roots
in Texas, paints what she loves. Boston’s subject matter tends
to focus on the ever changing scenery of the Texas Hill Country.
She is inspired by the big Texas sky, even as the sun sets and
the natural color palette dances and changes, pushing the limits
of her vision and creativity.
In Lakeway, watercolor artist Johnnie Fields taught Boston about
color. An enthusiastic student, Boston learned how to “make” and
blend a few basic colors to achieve a vast palette to work from.
With the Lakeway Painters group, Boston traveled to Big Bend to
experience a painting course in pastels by Lindy Cook Severns,
and she was hooked. Pastels, she realized, were the key element
necessary to accurately present what she sees in the landscape
and skies of the land that she loves.
Sandi Boston’s exhibit will be displayed at the Lake Travis
Community Library in January. An artist reception will take
place on Sunday, January 11th from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. The
public is invited to attend.
Lake Travis Community Library will showcase the
abstract sculptures of Travis Johansen during the month of
January. Johansen is originally from Boulder, Colorado and moved
to Lakeway with his wife and son in 2013.
As a professional engineer, Johansen may be naturally inclined
to understand the technical aspects of sculpting stone and
marble. However, his passion for the medium and the organic form
transcend the science and fit him firmly into the category of
Johansen has been sculpting alabaster and marble for over 10
years. Though much of his artistic development has occurred
through experience, Johansen has also attended various classes
and annual workshops at the Marble Institute of Colorado.
Johansen’s work includes several abstract pieces that are
intended to evoke the beauty of nature through simple shapes and
Lake Travis Community Library will display Johansen’s sculptures
during the month of January near the library entrance.
Additionally, Johansen will conduct an artist’s demonstration to
discuss the general process and development of a stone
sculpture. The demonstration is intended for all ages and
backgrounds and for those who are interested in the sculpting
process. The demonstration will be held on Tuesday, January 13th
at 6pm. All are invited to attend.
