Women & Their Work

1311 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/477-1064
The name says it all: The gallery (and nonprofit organization of the same name) presents innovative, original contemporary art by women of all stripes. Since 1978, Women & Their Work has made establishing a space for the visual legacy of female artists more than a mission; it's made it a vision. The 1,700-square-foot gallery showcases one artist at a time, with each artist in full control of everything from wall color to room size, making it perfect for site-responsive works and beautifully focused presentations. Yearly open calls ensure that programming ranges in material and content. The space also features a gift shop every bit as classy and professional as the gallery itself.

“Circular Body”

Alejandra Almuelle has been responsible for some of the most compelling works of clay sculpture ever created in this city, many of them predicated on the human body and its potential as a record of experience. This latest exhibition of her artistry, a solo show at Women & Their Work, brings the human form front and center, clayborne with additions of graphite, beeswax, paper, resin, and gold and silver leaf. Adorned, embellished, emboldened, the flesh created from clay comes full circle, a cycle of memory and magic powered by beauty, the viewing of it an experience we recommend recording via your own wonder-hungry rods and cones. – Wayne Alan Brenner Through May 9 (Opening reception, Sat., March 23, 7-9pm).
