Welcome to Hallettsville

                                                                                                                   

 The community of Hallettsville has a proud history rooted in tradition, culture and good 'ole Southern values! With a colorful and vibrant past ranging back to the mid-1800's, Hallettsville is rich in German and Czech heritage, a heritage that can be experienced to this day with Hallettsville's annual Kolache Fest, and a history that can be relived through our museum, memorials, historical markers and buildings, and our quaint downtown square and courthouse.

Annual events such as the Festival of Lights, Big Buck Contest, South Texas Polka & Sausage Festival, and State Championship Fiddler's Frolic offer fun for the entire family.

Jump into the heart of South Texas and you'll find Hallettsville.  Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, you will experience the down-home hospitality and small town charm that will make you feel right at home.

Roy & Blanche Cavarretta started Gravel Road Arts in 2011.  They were doing pen and ink drawings of local landmarks, which included two editions of the Lavaca County Courthouse, the St. Mary's Church in Hallettsville, TX, the St. Mary's Church in Praha, TX, the Sts. Cyril & Methodius Church in Shiner, TX, and the Luckenbach TX Post Office.  They were and still are marketing Limited Editions of the original drawings.

The gourd art was the result of planting gourd and white pumpkin seeds in their garden.  The gourds almost took over the garden with their vines growing on the fence and all over the garden.  As a result of growing so many gourds, they wondered what they would do with them.  They started making birdhouses and selling them at the Hallettsville Market Days.  They then discovered the world of gourds and gourd art and dove into this art form head first, doing fine art on gourds, entering competitions, attending juried art shows, and selling their work.  It was not long before they were being represented by three galleries, two in Texas and one in Santa Fe, NM.

Their work has been featured in several magazines and newspapers.  Roy and Blanche have each received numerous awards for their work.  They are members of the American and Texas Gourd Societies.  Both are board members with the Texas Gourd Society and Blanche also serves as Treasurer and Membership Chair.  They are also active promoters of this art form.

They provide sales of pen and ink drawings and gourd art.  Check them out on their Facebook page - Gravel Road Arts.
