    NOTE: The cost is equivalent to what a similar-sized arrangement would normally cost. Design, technique, composition, and care guidance (as well as the aforementioned libations!) are at no additional cost.

      atxGALS welcomes Spring Season with an intimate and fun art pop-up at The Refinery, located in the heart of downtown Austin.

      Following their unique approach in changing the way art exhibits are typically done, the talented group will be transforming this urban space into yet another fabulous room full of incredible art from some of Austin’s top emerging talent. Meet the artists, sip on a cocktail from the open bar, and support the incredible cause behind it all– a portion of the proceeds benefit a local non-profit, Girls Empowerment Network.

      The event will kick off at 6pm on Friday, April 19th and will feature the work of 10 emerging local female artists, music by DJ Diggy Dutch, open bar, small bites from local favorites, swag bags for all VIP ticket buyers, and a sweet raffle benefiting GEN.

              Important News Today: In case you have not gotten the memo, Blue On The Green is postponed for tonight due to weather. 

              The Jpg Jam is your chance to get a deeper look into Austin’s art scene. During this live exhibit you’ll experience four artists with 15 minutes each, doing what artists do. I’m not sure exactly what’s going to happen, but it’s intended to be an interesting local take on contemporary art.

              The idea is to showcase the creativity and vibrance of our local culture, and that’s something to be proud of! Last month this show brought in a packed house, so come check out our local artistic talent.

              Note: This art show DOES contain nudity, so it may not be appropriate for all ages.

              Admission: free
