The Austin Museum of Art has lined up the next 22 local artists that we ought to keep our eyes on

One of the most exciting exhibitions organized by the Austin Museum of Art in recent years was "22 to Watch: New Art in Austin," the 2002 show that took seriously the work being done by mostly younger and frequently more experimental artists in the city and gave it serious exposure in a major museum exhibition. Now, AMOA Executive Director Dana Friis-Hansen, the mastermind behind the original "22 to Watch," is ready to launch its sequel. Along with AMOA adjunct curator James Housefield; director of exhibitions and education Eva Buttacavoli; Joan Davidow, director of the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art; and Clint Willour, curator of the Galveston Arts Center, Friis-Hansen has lined up the next 22 local artists whom we ought to keep our eyes on. They are:

Sterling Allen

Candace Briceño

Ledia Carroll

Jerry Chamkis

Hunter Cross

Jeffrey Dell

Peat Duggins

Jonathan Faber

Alia Hasan-Khan

Hana Hillerova

After the show finishes its local run Aug. 20-Oct. 30 at the museum's downtown galleries, it hits the road, showing at the Galveston Arts Center, Nov. 26, 2005-Jan. 15, 2006, and the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, April 7-June 10, 2006. For more information, visit www.amoa.org.
