1202 W. Sixth, Austin, 78703, 512/472-7428
This gallery's a sine qua non of Austin's visual arts scene, featuring noteworthy contemporary artists and rarefied craftspeople in Austin and the rest of the U.S. Established by that eponymous Workman in 1980 in a century-old two-story house in the tony West Sixth district, the gallery is as agreeable and homey as it sounds. But while the work is not without a refreshing sense of whimsy, this is a serious art gallery featuring such emerging and collected talent as Will Klemm, Joyce Howell, Mallory Page, Tracey Harris, and Ian Shults.
A chameleon-like eclecticism has characterized his work to various distinct periods of art-historical influences and beyond, but the common thread in Bucknall's imagery is an animal-human mix
. It's a vivid personal mythology
that we've reveled in before
and are excited to see the newest manifestations of here. Through March 3.
