East Austin Studio Tour 2012 – Day One

EAST 2012

Today my friend Jill and I spent about 5 hours visiting all the painting studios (and more) at Pump Project, Pump Project Satellite, and the Bolm Road complex (which includes Big Medium, Pigoata Studios, and Bay6 Gallery and Studios).   What an amazing amount of wonderful art, and as always, it’s so fun to see old friends and meet new ones.

Specifically, here are links to the studios we visited:

Here is a gallery of images from today’s art outing:

*Artist images: I tried to identify the artist whose work is in the photos, but not all paintings had artist info cards.  Feel free to let me know if something needs to be corrected.

The 4th Annual GROW Forth! Show

The 4th Annual GROW Forth!  art exhibition and fund-raiser for Urban Patchwork was a great success and a lot of fun.  A lot of art got sold; I had four pieces that found new homes.  🙂  Thanks to everyone who came out; to everyone who helped with the preparations, the event, the setup and breakdown; to the other artists, who made hanging the show and viewing the show so much fun; and thanks especially to Anne Woods for her masterful organizing of this amazing one-night event!

P.S.  To Paige Hill and all the farmers of Urban Patchwork — thanks for the delicious organic veggies!

Fine print: no animals or vegetables were harmed and no production babies were born during the production of this event (that I know of); we did, however, have one doggie heart attack, one head wound, and one appendicitis!  And one tiny painting slightly damaged.
