Guzu Gets Ghoulish

Y'know, it's Halloween, and a disappointing number of Austin homes have bothered putting any spooky decorations up. Seems like Guzu Gallery has cornered all the sinister seasonal spirit, with their new terror-themed gallery show Icons of Horror getting its grand(guignol) opening tonight. Read More | Comment »

Day of the Dead at the ESB-MACC

Hard to believe that it's almost a year since we lost Austin's patron saint of printmaking, Sam Coronado. He died from complications following a stroke on Nov. 11, 2013, which means this will be the first Dia de los Muertos following his death. It's an ideal opportunity to remember this Austin Arts Hall of Famer, and rest assured, he will be. Read More | Comment »

New York Snapshots

Sometimes people – most of them young, in their twenties and thirties, but occasionally someone edging toward the more geezerly side of life – will leave Austin and move to New York City. They’ve heard the call, felt the attraction resonating through decades of American pop culture and friends’ reminiscences, and eventually they make the move. Read More | Comment »

POP Start

After midnight Wednesday, when you were no doubt snug under the covers safe from that frog-strangler of a storm, Matt Randall was out in the thick of it, getting drenched while he and a handful of other hardy souls installed a 15-foot Popsicle on the north end of the Congress Avenue Bridge. All in the name of art. Read More | Comment »

Shane and Sara Scribner: 'A Place Beyond'

Here’s an exhibition that you’ll really like to see in person, because the figurative work – in oils on panel – is the sort of excellence that makes people shake their head in wonder: How do these artists do it? How do they take a bunch of wet pigments and render images of near-photographic precision? Read More | Comment »

"Pillow" Talk

Terri Thomas' solo exhibition "Pillow Book as Inheritance" is challenging for many viewers, punter and scenester alike, though perhaps for different reasons. That inspired me to speak with the artist about the show. The interview began as informal conversation followed by elaboration and clarification over email. Read More | Comment »

Art Review: 'Blog Reblog'

What is "Blog Reblog"? A gallery show? An event? A comment on our modern forms of photographic dissemination? I suppose it’s all of those, but for lovers of contemporary photography, it’s worth a trip to the Big Medium galleries. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: Texas Surf, Turf, and Tequila

Pedaling Art

Take your standard diamond frame bicycle, be it fixie, BMX, or full-gear. Two pedals, a chain, one handlebar, the seat. Only thing you can switch up is the sizes. Right? Wrong! According to Charles Youel, there exist a million different ways to scheme up a signature cycle – at least in the form of screen printings as poster art. Read More | Comment »

Mondo Presents Marvelous Munchkins

If Mondo artist Mike Mitchell has a superpower, it's the ability to create solo shows without sunlight or nutrition. All he needs is a good night's rest. "That's the one thing I do. I don't eat as much, I don't do as much, I just work and sleep." Read More | Comment »
