Reichert art tapped by GVTC
Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative, Inc. announced that Edward Reichert of Canyon Lake will be featured artist on the 1997-1998 GVTC Telephone Directory cover.
Reichert’s painting was chosen by the GVTC board of directors from paintings and photographs submitted by more than 20 GVTC members, the largest number of entries ever received.
His painting entitled “The Charcoal Burners of Charcoal City, Texas” depicts a scene in the Guadalupe River Valley in the late 1800s. The area known as Charcoal City extended from Sisterdale to New Braunfels. Workers came to the region to obtain cedar to sell as posts or to bum as charcoal. Settlers who were planting and harvesting offered the workers the opportunity to clear the cedar, as it provided more land for farming or ranching. The history of this practice is further explored in “Ghost Towns of Texas” by Dick King, published by the Naylor Company, San Antonio.
Reichert is a resident of the Canyon Lake area, a native Texan, architect, designer and artist. He has
