The “Collectors Show” at grayDUCK Gallery
Collecting the collectors and showing Austin what they’ve got
DAILY Arts  May 24, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The “Collectors Show” at grayDUCK Gallery on East Cesar Chavez is, as you might guess, a show about collectors. Or, rather, about what you might infer about collectors (of visual art) from what they collect...."

"Suchitra Mattai: Landfall" at grayDUCK Gallery
The artist's channeled chaos vividly explores relationships between the natural and human worlds
Arts Review  December 20, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...At grayDUCK Gallery right now, there's a show called "Landfall" that features the mixed-media creations of Suchitra Mattai, a globe-trotting native of Guyana, South America, who currently lives and works in Denver. You want deeper meanings and cultural resonances, you're going to get them in this show...."

“Practical Acts of Perception” at grayDUCK Gallery
Cande Aguilar, Jorge Purón, and Mauricio Sáenz challenge what we see through sihfts in scale and proportion
Arts Review  January 11, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...Image search "IFRAO Standard Scale" and you will see a rectangle carefully split into colored blocks: black, white, and gray, and then blue, green, yellow, red. Better, go to grayDUCK Gallery while they are still showing "Practical Acts of Perception." The scale is on the exhibition postcard..."

“Elizabeth Chiles: Weave” at grayDUCK Gallery
Chiles explores the ever-changing nature of light, time, and life through transcendant prints of light’s little dance through flora
Arts Review  May 3, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...As I was walking out of Elizabeth Chiles' current solo show at grayDUCK Gallery, I pulled out my phone to query: "Japanese word light through tree leaves." The word I was looking for, remembered from lists of "untranslatable words" that would circulate Tumblr, was "komorebi," which despite its frequent categorization as untranslatable conveys a phenomenon almost everyone immediately recognizes: the flickering of sunlight through the filter of tree leaves. It's comforting to know that there are other people recognizing the same little sensations as they move through life, melding them into their vocabulary, be they linguistic or visual..."

"Carlos Donjuan & Marilyn Jolly: Akin"
In this two-person exhibition at grayDUCK Gallery, some of these things are not like any others
Arts Review  March 3, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Jolly has a variety of things displayed on the walls and on a pedestal or two and even set to roll across the planks of grayDUCK Gallery's beautiful wooden floor. You'll recognize them instantly as art..."

"Crit Group 2018" at grayDUCK Gallery
The body of work by artists in the Contemporary Austin's current critique group often engages the body in some way
Arts Review  August 23, 2018, by Tatiana Ryckman
"...Upon entering the gallery, the viewer is confronted with the visceral mixed-media collage work of Christine Garvey. With titles like Scab, Mouth, and Strip, it's hard not to feel that the saturated, pink-hued works are bodies cut open and laid bare..."

"Shawn Smith: Predators, Prey, and Pixels" at grayDUCK Gallery
The artist pushes past the simplicity of creating pixelated sculptures of wildlife
Arts Review  October 15, 2015, by Seth Orion Schwaiger
"...So, moving through grayDUCK Gallery, I was pleasantly surprised by both the organization of the show and the relative risk evident in Smith's most recent works. There are still plenty of his classics dotting the walls, but, thankfully, most of these are placed in a way to add another layer to the art: a cheetah spaced just far enough from the gazelle she is chasing to have each read as individual works, but at a distance create a scene that extends the length of the gallery; or a puffer fish defending itself from a tiger shark swimming down at it at a steep angle..."

“Raul Gonzalez: Doing Work” at grayDUCK Gallery
The show’s images of construction work and fatherhood challenge expectations of masculinity, domesticity, immigrant work, and art
Arts Review  November 30, 2017, by Melany Jean
"...The physical nature of both construction work and parenting is sublimated in Gonzalez's exuberant dancing, on full display in a video of him moving throughout a city and occasionally at an in-gallery live performance on a kaleidoscopic dance floor installation. Joyful, corporeal, and catching, it's a touch of cool slyly in keeping with Gonzalez's visual style and thematic concerns...."

“Jana Swec: Congitopia” at grayDUCK Gallery
It’s the valuable give and take between Jana Swec and her collaborators that make this show consistent, as well as surprising
Arts Review  March 23, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Swec may have orchestrated the process, but ultimately she, and her collaborators, were at its mercy. That is as it should be. “Jana Swec: Congitopia”grayDUCK Gallery, 2213 E..."

"Rebecca Marino: The Best Available Evidence" at grayDUCK Gallery
The exhibit drops viewers into the middle of the mystery of UFOs, but without providing any answers
Arts Review  April 21, 2016, by H.C. Arnold
"...Rebecca Marino invites us to think about this in "The Best Available Evidence" at grayDUCK Gallery. Combining photography, sculpture, and audio recordings, the exhibition brings us into the middle of the long-standing debate about the existence of UFOs..."

"Rachel Wolfson Smith: Midas" at grayDUCK Gallery
The vehicle crashes in this solo exhibition, artfully drawn in graphite, manage to contain both peace and a madness
Arts Review  August 11, 2016, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...The most prominent theme here, in addition to vehicles and crashes, is motorcycle racing (an actual motorcycle is posted at the entrance to the gallery). This is where things get tricky for me, and in the best of ways..."

"Robert Jackson Harrington and Hector Hernandez: Impossible to Tell" at grayDUCK Gallery
Plastic hues and triumphant assemblages convey the belligerent optimism of American-style consumerism
Arts Review  December 31, 2015, by Seth Orion Schwaiger
"...Here, though, that patriotism takes a strange form with tokens of low-level labor (think mop heads and utility lights) and a color palette deeply informed by current marketing strategy. Even without the American flags poking out the back of several sculptures like battle banners, few could miss the unspoken chant of "USA, USA" filling the gallery, or maybe just simply, "'Merica!"..."

“Elizabeth Chiles and John Swanger: Lumens & Currents” at grayDUCK Gallery
This exhibition has a softness that’s seductive, but it also speaks to our timeless wonder at the workings of wildness
Arts Review  January 5, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Chiles' lumen prints capture the temporariness of a plant with the lightness of photography; her Window shows us glowing curtains to the outside world; Swanger's paintings, like #65 and #55 & 57, mentioned above, are the rippling curtains we can touch; his found paintings covered with aluminum leaf are titters at the joke we play on ourselves, that we can duplicate the dignity of our spontaneous world. But his objects, like the entire show, are also nods of agreement – that yes, our timeless wonder at the workings of wildness, which includes ourselves, is a worthy calling, and that our collusion with the wildness is real. “Elizabeth Chiles and John Swanger: Lumens & Currents” grayDUCK Gallery, 2213 E..."

Arts Story  July 15, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...South Austin's grayDUCK Gallery has a new show coming up this weekend. It's called "Identity Crisis," it's curated by Hector Hernandez, and it's about public and private identities and how they're formed..."
