The elegant old manse on the corner of West Sixth and Baylor is a lot like its neighbor down the block, Treaty Oak: a grand reminder of an earlier Austin, the one from which our current buzz-happy, 24/8 Idea City sprang. On the first floor of the Sixth Street side, local entrepreneur Stephen L. Clark has created a photography gallery so genial in atmosphere and striking in the work it features – still life, portrait, and landscape work by such regional favorites as Keith Carter, Mariana Yampolsky, and Kate Breakey – that you're inspired to slow down so you can absorb it all, like a lens absorbing light.
