Arts Story  November 23, 2012, by Robert Faires
"...After a one-year hiatus, the Austin Visual Arts Association resumed its annual tradition of honoring outstanding local artists in a ceremony at the AT&T Education and Conference Center.

Arts Story  January 4, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner

Austin Visual Arts Awards
A new setting but similar sentiments at the second round of the art honors
Arts Story  December 17, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...For the sophomore presentation of the Austin Visual Arts Awards, the setting was changed, but the sentiment was much the same. The Austin Visual Arts Association, which sponsors the honors, shifted the ceremony from the Austin Museum of Art community room to a ballroom in the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the University of Texas campus, which relieved the congestion of the inaugural ceremony – to be fair, AVAA hadn't expected 250 people to show up – and gave it the ambience of a more traditional awards show..."

An overflow crowd turned out to see which local artists would be honored
Arts Story  December 18, 2009, by Robert Faires

Austin Visual Arts: 'Art in America' surveys the scene
For a national magazine to do a story on Austin that's just about the visual arts scene is pretty much unheard of
Arts Story  December 28, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...By now, Austin has been the subject of so many stories in national magazines that you'd figure it was no longer news when another one hits the stands. Maybe it isn't, but as Charles Dee Mitchell points out in the introduction to his "Report From Austin" in the December issue of Art in America, most of the associations people outside the city make with Austin involve music, film, or high tech..."

A Few Visual Art Galleries: In Your City and Beyond Right Now
So much to see, how far to go, an embarrassment of riches…
DAILY Chronolog  September 7, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...So, yeah, I'm probably not going to make it down to TSU in San Marcos this weekend, which is a sorrow, because Randall Reid has a huge solo show down there, and his object-collages are always worth seeing, to say the least.

"...As in last year's Laguna Gloria Sound Series piece Concerto Laguna, a person in a boat figures prominently, but instead of the floating cellist in Travis Weller's composition, the figure in Aldo Valdés Böhm's handcrafted wooden canoe will be conducting the 12 trombonists, half of whom will be on the Laguna Gloria shoreline and half of whom will be dispersed along docks across the water and unable to see one another. Whether you go to hear it at dusk on Friday or dawn on Saturday, give yourself an extra hour and a quarter to experience Susurrus...."

Arts Story  July 2, 2004, by Sam Martin
"...If you didn't know, the Austin Museum of Art is not going to build its new downtown facility at Fourth and Guadalupe. The reasons are numerous, but the ultimate deal breaker was the fact that even if AMOA had succeeded in raising the $43 million it would've taken to build the 250,000-square-foot Richard Gluckman design, it would still need $9 million a year just to operate it..."

Arts Story  May 5, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...That the vitality of Austin's cultural scene is owed to its leaders – those artists, educators, patrons, and arts advocates who made the work and founded the institutions and provided the support that allowed theatre, dance, classical music, and the visual arts to take root and flourish here – may go without saying, but leadership takes many forms. At times, it looks like Shakespeare's Henry V, vigorous and magnetic, rallying the troops with words of inspiration..."

Arts Story  July 6, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Now cue the music: violin and viola intertwining in dreamy melodic lines, repeated with synth underscoring and drum machine beats, spiced here with Eastern airs and there with hip-hop rhythms, and maybe some spoken lines or softly sung lyrics that add to the alluring, mesmerizing, and thoroughly fresh spell cast by their original compositions. Unless, that is, they're covering, say, Kanye's "FML" or Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," Beyoncé's "Partition" or Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," in which case their musical magic turns alchemical, transforming a song you knew into one that sounds like nothing you've heard before...."
