Art for Healing
The stunning art collection of the Dell Children's Medical Center
Arts Story  January 18, 2008, by Rebecca S. Cohen
"...The brightly painted wooden discs placed around a large, sunlike center look something like variations on the game Chinese checkers. Nearby, an azure-toned photograph of a tree by Christopher Burkett (he used to be a monk and now feels that photography is his spiritual expression) and silk screen by Pat Steir (a New York-based printmaker whose abstractions often evoke images of cascading water) provide more sedate, though no less layered, focal points..."

"We'll Just Rock for Ourselves: Selections From the Lisa Davis Archives"
The photos capture the kineticism of Austin's lesbian music scene in the Nineties and the magnitude of the photographer's legacy
Arts Review  July 5, 2018, by Beth Sullivan
"...Culled from an archive of more than 29,000 images, Davis' photography on display pivots around Austin's lesbian musicians and LGBTQ activists of the Nineties. Davis captured countless bands, queer and otherwise, but it was the city's "lezzie rock" groups such as Two Nice Girls, Power Snatch, and Sincola – with their sexually and politically charged music from a queer, feminist perspective – that proved enthralling for Davis...."

Austin's Artspace Crisis and Microvenues
Are home art galleries and mini-performance venues the answer to the space crunch?
Arts Story  June 21, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, Ballet Austin's headquarters, the Bullock Texas State His­tory Museum – and the Hideout and the Fallout Theater have emerged, reflecting the surge in improv over the past two decades, but the number of spaces where local theatre gets produced is down to three, and the number of galleries has dropped to nine. Worse, once-vibrant cultural pockets of Down­town have dried up: the Warehouse District, onetime home to Gallery Lombardi, Capitol City Play­house, Live Oak Theatre, Flatbed Press, and Francois Photography, is down to one full-time gallery, Lora Reynolds, and one part-time gallery, the DEN..."

Author of The English Patient sends papers to UT
DAILY Arts  September 26, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Once again , it was the phenomenal holdings at the Ransom Center that swayed the author to make it the home for his papers. On his initial visit, it was the comprehensive photography collection that bowled him over, then on the next, it was the literary materials, what he called "that gathering of wonders," citing "Robert Browning’s address book, a draft of Faulkner’s Light in August, a letter from Tennyson to Whitman (who knew!), poems by Yeats, Borges …."..."

"Other Forms of Life" at the Contemporary Austin
With her mysterious and compelling artwork, Huma Bhabha puts us face to alien face
Arts Story  September 13, 2018, by Sumaiya Malik
"...Once home, I began researching Bhabha, eager to know more. I found that although Bhabha trained as a painter and printmaker at the Rhode Island School of Design and Columbia University, she thinks of herself as a sculptor; that she moves effortlessly among sculpture, painting, photography, collage, and prints; that she is currently making waves on the national contemporary art scene, one sign of which is that she was commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to create an installation for its Roof Garden series...."

Four Austin Art Galleries Worth Your Weekend Time
Gonna make your eyes wanna kiss your brain
DAILY Chronolog  July 26, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...(Hell, no: This city's lousy with visual-arts goodness. It's not San Antonio, no, you're right; but, hey, even without considering UT – and how can you not consider UT? – this town's got some fierce venues for your cultural diversion & edification.) But: Here are four we've had the pleasure of visiting recently, the exhibitions of which are still on display: grayDUCK Gallery's got the three-artist Tamed Territory going on right now, with Calder Kamin's ceramic sculptures of all sorts of animals, including several species of bats, a series referencing the Endangered Species list, and a roadkill armadillo and a dead rabbit – complete with beautifully glazed bloodstains; Casey Polacheck's paintings of animals-in-diorama; and the photography of Areca Roe, who's documented a diversity of creatures during a tour of national zoos..."

Austin Bucket List
Dip your toe in local culture
DAILY AAN  June 20, 2016, by Molly Burke
"...A visit to Austin isn’t complete without a tour of its requisite Instagram backdrops. You’ve probably seen the SoCo “i love you so much” tag, or 1080p patches of the Castle Hill Graffiti Park, but have you captured poorly executed “special effects” photography of the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue by Auditorium Shores? Or how about being snapped underneath one of Austin’s historic moonlight towers, relics from a bygone age free of today’s convenient light pollution? If you have any self-respect, you’ll get a group jumping pic in front of the 360 bridge, a snap where you’re petting a pup at Zilker, and an introspective shot of you gazing in awe at the beautiful Capitol building. The 2016 Association of Alternative Newsmedia Convention takes place July 6-9 in Downtown Austin...."

Austin Confidential
Interview With Actor Russell Crowe
Screens Story  October 17, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...One of the greatest things about Curtis Hanson as a filmmaker is that he just operates on a level of intelligence and sensitivity that the next man (or woman) doesn't possibly possess, or would care to possess, you know? Curtis was turned on to this whole idea by reading a book by a novelist called James Ellroy, so it was still very important to Curtis that he preserve Ellroy's voice within the movie. By the time you start principal photography, most novelists who've sold the rights to their books in Hollywood are feeling somewhere between steamrolled and raped, and that's mainly because the filmmaker or the producers don't care to preserve that voice..."

Texas Photo Roundup
Austin photography icon Dan Winters headlines three-day confab for photo pros
Arts Story  February 1, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Thanks to the Austin Center for Photography and the Austin/San Antonio chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers, Roundup attendees will have the chance to have their photographs reviewed by representatives from agencies such as Pentagram, TracyLocke, JWT, Wonderful Machine, GSD&M, and Razorfish, and magazines such as Smithsonian, Dwell, and Fortune; hear masters in the field discuss the challenges of the profession and how they overcome the problems of camera-shy subjects, demanding art directors, and never having enough time; and even shoot with some of the pros and get their advice directly. Some of the weekend's big events – an all-day road trip to Lockhart for barbecue and shooting with the prime documentarian of Texas BBQ, Wyatt McSpadden, as well as a two-day workshop with Arnold Newman Portrait Prize winner Chris Buck – are already sold out, but you can still catch some great discussions of the state of the field: a panel discussion on pricing your work, keeping your business sustainable, and nailing the creative call, featuring Austin-based photographer Adam Voorhes, Jess Dudley of Wonderful Machine, Allen Murabayashi of Photoshelter, and Kaia Hemming of JWT, moderated by Allegra Wilde of Eyeist; and a conversation between Monte Isom and Andrew Hetherington on building a career in photography, from the basics of portfolios to whether or not you need an agent to how to take a meeting (all this knowledge, plus free breakfast tacos!)...."

Arts Story  May 20, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...In a city that's home to the world's first photograph, you'd think the art of the camera would rule. But despite the presence of that primal relic; despite the thousands of other historic photos held by the University of Texas' Harry Ransom Center; despite having had many great practitioners of the art – Depression-era documentarian Russell Lee, his latter-day political heir Alan Pogue, Garry Winogrand, Burton Pritzker, Ave Bonar, Donna De Cesare, and Bill Wittliff, to reel off a few names – live here, photography's profile has never been the highest in Austin...."
