"One / Sixth" at de stijl
This group show of work by six black graduates of UT's M.F.A. art program shouldn't have to exist, but thankfully it does
Arts Review  June 9, 2016, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"..."One / Sixth" gathers work from six of the seven black artists known to have graduated from the University of Texas at Austin's MFA program (the seventh, Wendel A. White [1982], was not brought to the curators' attention until it was too late for his inclusion)..."

"En Bola" at de stijl
The pairings of artists in this Los Outsiders exhibition yield works that are at once chaotic and harmonious, loud and quiet
Arts Review  July 6, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Though "En Bola" is the work of six artists, it functions as the work of three. Each pairing of makers has its own character with its own philosophy, which together form a cohesive, multidimensional experience..."

"Larry Graeber: Place to Place" at de stijl
In this collection of jazzy geometric mixed-media works and sculptures, the artist conjures wild characters in a self-contained universe
Arts Review  April 6, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Wire and Tube is static, but I can't help describing it as a living thing, in part because of how well it interacts with Graeber's nearby frenetic works on paper. Graeber has concocted a series of deceptively simple 2-D mixed media pieces that, despite their relative uniformity and (paradoxically) accompanying wildness, seem to run the gamut of allusion from portrait to landscape to still life..."

Christina Coleman at WEST 2017
The artist gives voice to the blackness in creation stories and personal histories
Arts Story  May 11, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Local artist Christina Coleman has imagined her staffs of braided black hair as figures or trees making a forest deep and rich enough for a person to walk "in the midst of." In order to display the staffs in such a way, she'd have to drill holes in the floor of a gallery; the complicated process has made it so that thus far the forest of staffs hasn't seen the light of day. I told her I like the idea of that forest..."

Mug Life
Austin isn't a world-class beer destination, but it's close
Food Story  November 12, 2015, by Eric Puga
"...Within this micro-economy of Texas beer, few breweries dominate the regional landscape as much as Austin's Jester King and Live Oak, who produce 55% of the state's top-20-ranked beers according to Beer Advocate. The pair's noteworthy quality as well as general unavailability to those outside of Austin make them compelling brands for beer fans in other states, along with similarly inaccessible packaged stalwarts Austin Beerworks and Hops & Grain...."

Putting It Together
The Austin Symphony's Peter Bay on Leading an Orchestra, Interpreting a Score, and Seeing Music
Arts Story  January 19, 2001, by Robi Polgar
"...In person, Bay is equally generous: a steady, adroit speaker, quick to smile, with a glint in his eye that makes you wonder just how much imp lurks beneath the surface of this incredibly well-listened, well-traveled artist whose record collection numbers in the thousands and who has graced the podium in dozens of American cities...."

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..."

Fear & Loathing on the Inaugural Trail
One man's journey to the Bush inauguration confirms more than it denies.
Features Story  February 2, 2001, by Michael Bolduc
"...The great thing about presidents is their vulnerability. Nothing is easier than ripping on a new, sitting, or departing president, and supporters and impugners alike should feel relieved that the hottest and brightest spotlight in the world will never be turned on them...."
