Wally Workman Gallery
1202 W. Sixth, Austin, 78703, 512/472-7428
Hours: Tue.-Sat., 10am-5pm
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.
This is the gallery's fifth solo show with the Los Angeles-based artist, whose inspiration for subject matter is found in her love of form and figure as depicted by the Impressionists and Modernists of the early 20th century. Through May 28.
