1202 W. Sixth
Hours: Tue.-Sat., 10am-5pm
This gallery's a sine qua non of Austin's visual arts scene, featuring noteworthy contemporary artists and rarefied craftspeople in Austin and the rest of the U.S. Established by that eponymous Workman in 1980 in a century-old two-story house in the tony West Sixth district, the gallery is as agreeable and homey as it sounds. But while the work is not without a refreshing sense of whimsy, this is a serious art gallery featuring such emerging and collected talent as Will Klemm, Joyce Howell, Mallory Page, Tracey Harris, and Ian Shults.
Bust down the goddamn door to get in, if you have to: This is an exhibition of all-new work by Austin's own Ian Shults
, that chronicler of the seamier side of midcentury life and its diversions from the grave
, and the Workman walls are just about dripping with his stuttered renditions of urban debauchery. Sat., March 4 - Sat., March 25Through March 25.
