Paintings by Susan Sterle (above) and Melanie Stokes (below) are among the art that will be for sale at the Kris Kringle Art Caravan on Dec. 3 at Sterle Fine Arts Studio, 8 N 9th Street in Temple. In addition to high-quality original paintings and prints, items such as sketchbooks and art supplies will be available.

Art sale will feature painters from Temple, Belton and Waco


Those who have an art-lover on their holiday shopping list are in luck — a Temple studio is having a Dec. 3 event just for you.

The Kris Kringle Artist Caravan, a collection of affordable art by local artists and gifts priced as low as $5, will be at Susan Sterle’s Downtown gallery. Sterle Fine Art Studio is located at 8 N 9th Street in Temple and the event will start at 9 a.m. and end at 5.

“The artists are from the Waco, Temple and Belton areas,” Sterle said. “They all will be presenting two-dimensional art. Items available will include original paintings and prints, and sketchbooks and pencil sets for the budding artists in the family.”

“The event will be inside and on the studio porch, and I will have art outside in a tent,” Sterle said. “This is the first year for the Kris Kringle Artist Caravan, and I hope to make it an annual event.”

Artists participating in the Caravan include Kurt Ritterpusch, Pattie Marek, Melanie Stokes, Jesse Tamez, Doris Wylie Fulton and Sterle.

Sterle is known for her paintings of dogs, horses and other animals, as well as outdoor scenes.

Twenty percent of all sales will benefit the Hope Pregnancy Center.

“This is a very worthy pro-life organization,” she said. “Next year we may have more than one beneficiary. Giving back is so important now and throughout the year.”
