Two local artists make '24-Hour Comics Day Highlights,' the Arts Commission talks minority arts allocations, and Andrew Long opens his studio

• Congratulations to Stephanie Weiler and Lea Hernandez on being tapped for the anthology 24-Hour Comics Day Highlights 2005, being published by 24-Hour Comics Day organizer About Comics. The two were among some 70 artists who spent April 23 and 24 at Austin Books & Comics – the largest turnout of any comics shop in the country – each trying to write and draw a 24-page story in 24 hours. The 496-page collection featuring their efforts, plus stories by 22 other professional and amateur creators from around the country, will be published in October.

• The Austin Arts Commission Guidelines Committee has been working on funding for minority-based, ethnically specific arts institutions and has some recommendations on that subject. In order to get public comment on this issue, a public meeting is being held to present the ideas to the community. It will be Wednesday, June 29, 5:30-7pm, at the A.B. Cantu Pan American Recreation Center, 2100 E. Third. For more information, call 974-9310.

Andrew Long is having an Open Studio before the opening of his solo exhibition of painting at the prestigious McMurtrey Gallery in Houston (July 9-Aug. 6). Go by his place at 2112 Willow, from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, June 25. For more information, call 450-1045 or visit
