“Dreaming of Papaver Rhoeas” by Angela Effenberger, 2020
From an article by Hello Georgetown…
“Wolf Ranch Town Center commissioned a local artist to add color, texture and vibrancy to outdoor spaces for the community to enjoy as part of The Canvas Project. From the Call for Artist Entries published by the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board, Wolf Ranch Town Center selected Angela Effenberger for a mural installation on the exterior wall of Starbucks. The concept imagery features red poppies, reflecting the community connection between Wolf Ranch Town Center and the Downtown Georgetown Cultural District, located only 5 miles from the center.
A native Texan and graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Effenberger began her decorative painting career two decades ago and still loves what she does. Through her business, Dragonfly Design Austin Painting, she creates murals and paints customized furniture for residences and businesses throughout Austin and the surrounding areas.
Nature scenes are her favorite to paint, especially on a large scale. Her passion is advocacy through art and has donated over two dozen murals to local non-profits including Caritas of Austin, The Austin Diaper Bank, The Salvation Army, Foster Village and more. She resides in Cedar Park, Texas with her husband and two children.
Through the Canvas Project, local artists have a space to showcase their art within prominent areas of Washington Prime Group centers across the country. While celebrating and supporting local artists is at the heart of The Canvas Project, it also provides an opportunity for the community to connect and grow together through art, emotion and imagination.
“Local artists make our community vibrant,” said Rhonda Pritchard, general manager at Wolf Ranch Town Center. “Their use of subjects, color, texture and composition awaken a sense of curiosity and connection to the world around us. The Canvas Project supports our local arts culture, while providing an opportunity for our community to grow together. We will spotlight an artist’s talent with live, in-person and in-progress work on display right outside.”
The community will see a few different phases of The Canvas Project. Initially, a primer will be placed in space where the mural will be going. Then, Effenberger will begin outlining and installing the mural in that space November 5-25, 2020.”
