This blog is used to provide details of particular events and projects. At this time, it is intended to be quarterly, though there could occasionally be a reason to post something within a shorter time frame.
Seated Gestures, WovenHand-made work. 2 distinct negatives used to make 2 separate platinum prints which are cut and interwoven. On Oct 4 through 29, five of our woven platinum portrait images will be exhibited at Link & Pin in East Austin with the Creative Arts Society. These are from our Implications II series. Each image began as a portrait made on a 5x7 film negative. Subjects were re-arranged and another negative was made. The negatives were each printed on a cotton paper, using our own platinum chemical formula. One image was cut vertically and the other horizontally, then interwoven to create the final image. An Opening Reception will be held on Oct 6, 6-8pm.
Lilies, Woven Overlapping, on Oct 6 through Nov 5, 10 of our woven platinum still life images will be exhibited at ASmith Gallery in Johnson City, TX. These are from our Implications I series. Each of these images began as a still life arrangement made into an 8x10 film negative. Smaller elements were re-arranged and another negative was was made. The negatives were printed and woven, as above, to create the final image. An Artists' Reception will be held on Oct 28; we will give a brief presentation around 5pm.
Through Nov 1, three of our B&W images are showing at Cypress Grill in South Austin with the Creative Arts Society. The three works, depicting children, are hung in the main dining room. This Cajun restaurant is located in a small strip center on William Cannon Dr, just west of Loop 1/MoPac.
November is the last month to vote for your favorite three pieces on display at the People's Gallery at Austin City Hall. The piece with the most votes is purchased by the City. Artwork is located in atrium, hallways and conference rooms of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. Our B&W portrait of a child is located on the 2nd Floor in the main hallway of the Council Offices. Catalogs, Voting Ballots and Ballot Box are available on the 2nd Floor, to the right as you step out of the elevator. The work is on exhibit through Jan 4, 2018.
Dec 2-30, we are taking over the walls of Mantis Salon in Central Austin with an overview of our work. The Artists' Take-over Opening Reception is Dec 2, 6-9pm. This style-making salon is located in a small house at the corner of Burnet Rd & 46th St.
In addition to our website, we have participated in some world-wide group projects, including an article about an aspect of our still life series that we wrote for The Afterlife of Discarded Objects (http://theafterlifeofdiscardedobjects.com/featuredstories) and an intriguing game called the TELEPHONE Project, played by creating art inspired by someone else's art, then inspiring another with the piece you created (http://telephone.satellitecollective.org). Both sites are interesting ways to spend a few minutes (or more) exploring art from a different viewpoint.
We hope to see you around!
