"...Austrian painter Egon Schiele’s boldly sensual paintings were decried as pornographic in his era and, nearly a century after his death, his art still makes waves. One piece in particular, the tender Portrait of Wally, ignited an art-world war and influenced the moral position of museums on the issue of Nazi plunder...."
"...By that point the painting – titled Portrait of Wally, after Schiele's mistress and muse Valerie "Wally" Neuzil – had been locked in a crate for more than 10 years, the much-contested centerpiece of a federal forfeiture case that had been brought by the United States Customs Service against the work's owner, Austrian art collector and museum curator Rudolf Leopold. At the time the complaint was filed, Portrait of Wally had been hanging on a wall at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, part of a celebrated exhibit of Schiele's work on loan from the Leopold Museum in Vienna..."
"...What’s up with Rodney Dangerfield? His latter-day film career seems intent on turning his famed comedy routine about getting “no respect” into some kind of precocious epitaph. His recent movie projects such as Ladybugs and Meet Wally Sparks have the rancid smell of self-destructive wish fulfillment..."
"...By honoring the complexity of an individual, Chapin's work deepens our humanity. It forces us to not only look, but to see as well. Elizabeth Chapin: “Careful/Uncareful”Wally Workman Gallery, 1202 W..."
"...However, Siems' postures, if you can call them that, could never be described as "stiff," even if her faces do manage the enigmatic air of old worlds. These bodies, instead, should be called liquid; they should be called air. “Anne Siems: Weaving”Wally Workman Gallery, 1202 W..."

"...Stay tuned for more information on the rest of the screening series, which is slated to include Portrait of Wally (April 6), Gerhard Richter Painting (July 18), and Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (Aug. 15)...."
"...So, you get the drift here? The drift of diaphanous clouds in a strange breeze among the shadows? Wally Workman’s got a habit of bringing new artists to this city’s attention, and this first Austin show for the Scribners is another lovely and compelling case in point...."

"...Downcast but resolute, Midwood played well enough at Sam's open mic night that boss man Wally Grossman offered him a Wednesday residency. He's since been a fixture at the joint, booking their popular "South by Sam's Town Point" series, and developing a tight relationship with matriarch Penny Grossman..."
"...Louis: And his roommate was Wally Cox...."
"...How far would you go to get your dog back if he disappeared? Ask Wally, the amiable skinhead whose Dalmatian, NeeChee, is abducted by bumbling gangsters after a chance run-in. He tries the conventional ways (like the dog pound) but soon visits his well-armed friend Lee for some firepower to take things up a notch or two..."
"...Pomponio's "Electro -- Mystic Machine" sculptures are meticulously crafted from archaic electro--mechanical contraptions that pull viewers into an H.G. Wells mad scientist's time warp of light, sight, sound, and movement. Wally Vogel's post apocalyptic, melt-down television set exposes a wasteland of blown circuit boards, transistors, fuses, severed wires, and fizzled connections, all illuminated by two eerily iridescent, twisted coils of neon -- the last living elements in this pile of electrical jetsam...."
"...LIE DOWN WITH DOGSD: Wally White; with White, Randy Becker, Darren Dryden, Bash Halow, James Sexton, Michael Richoz. The life lessons learned by by the gay Everyboy in Wally White's semi-autobiographical Lie Down With Dogs don't evoke much of an empathetic response: As the clichŽ goes, you had to be there. It's an experience much like being cornered by someone at a party for an enthusiastic telling of "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" - the holiday, in this instancce, spent in homo-friendly Provincetown, Massachusetts - and wondering if the story has a point..."
"..."I got them at home, I don't need the babes. But it wouldn't matter if I were Wally Shawn -- if you're in the movies, you get the babes."..."
"...Rodney Dangerfield wants us to MEET WALLY SPARKS, a gauche talk-show host he plays in his new comedy vehicle... In METRO, Eddie Murphy breathes new life into the cop-buddy genre he helped to create....."
"...Stella: I realized it didn't make any sense to be connected to a gallery in the town you live in – especially when you run a gallery. I mean, I was showing at Wally Workman, and that was great..."
"...South of Lady Bird Lake is your chocolate: an eclectic mix of mostly studios, about half of them clustered in the Travis Heights and Bouldin Creek neighborhoods, plus a few familiar exhibition spaces, such as grayDuck Gallery, Yard Dog, and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum. Downtown and Clarksville are your vanilla, consisting primarily of established galleries (Wally Workman, Davis, Art on 5th, Women & Their Work, La Peña, Austin Art Connections, Austin Details Art + Photo) and assorted exhibition spaces (the People's Gallery at Austin City Hall, Mexic-Arte Museum, Faulk Central Library, the University of Texas School of Architecture, University Baptist Church, and the brand-new Co-Lab Projects space)..."
