People’s Gallery 2014

Coming up next . . . I’ll have three things in the new People’s Gallery exhibit at Austin City Hall.

invite

The Economic Development Department is proud to announce the 10th annual People’s Gallery exhibition at Austin City Hall will officially open Friday, February 28 with a free public reception from 6 to 9 p.m. The public is invited to meet the artists and view the exhibition which features artworks on loan from local artists, art organizations, and galleries on display throughout the first three floors of City Hall. Local indie rock band Mobley will perform on the City Hall Plaza at 8 p.m. and the Whole Foods Market trailer will be on site offering food for purchase.

The People’s Gallery is designed to showcase regional artistic endeavors and to encourage public dialog, understanding, and enjoyment of visual art. Each year, the Cultural Arts Division of the City’s Economic Development Department issues a call for artworks to Austin-area artists, galleries, museums, and arts organizations. The selected works are displayed in the public spaces of the first three floors of City Hall for one year. The 2014 exhibition jury members were artist and curator Michael Anthony García, art historian and co-owner of Tiny Park Gallery Thao Votang, and illustrator Terrence Moline.

West Austin Studio Tour

I’ll be participating in the West Austin Studio Tour May 19 and 20. Just like its counterpart, the East Austin Studio Tour, WEST is a free, self-guided tour that champions the abundance of talent of Austin’s large and wildly diverse creative community. The public is invited to discover new artistic talent, see working studios, learn about artists’ tools, techniques, and inspirations, and support the arts community.

 

I’m #151 onthe map. My most recent work will be on display and I’ll have some originals for sale, prints, and cards. There will also be fortune-telling.

 

My guest artist is jewelry designer Lisa Chandler.

 

There is a corresponding group show open this week (10-5) and on the weekend during tour hours at 241 West 3rd Street. It’s a good place to get an overview of all the artists participating and figure out whose studios you want to check out.

 

Print catalogs and maps are available for free at all Austin public libraries. I’m partial to this page:

If you’re in Austin, come out and see us! I cleaned for you.

December in Austin

When asked if he was cold, this little guy raised his arms over his head and shouted “YES BUT I LOVE IT!”

East Austin studio tour

I saw only the tiniest portion of the East Austin Studio Tour this year.  The variety of artists and talent in just the small bit I saw was astounding.   Some favorites . . .
