The 2011 Beachcomb­er’s Art Show (BCAS) was a collage of colors, medi­ums and materials that in­stantly caught the eyes of viewers and they entered the South Padre Island Convention Centre over the weekend.

Celebrating 52 years of art, the show featured work ranging from photography, mixed-medium painting, metal work, wood carv­ings, handmade jewelry, blown glass, needlework, and more.

Artists from all over the state showcased their work in the booths around the floor. Many said that they make it a point to come to the BCAS every year.
