Artists

    Local artist Jack Sanders, founder of Design Build Adventure, a working studio and collaborative design, architecture, art, yoga, welding, and baseball community, launched his first local solo exhibition, Big Flat Art Show, featuring more than forty works on paper, at PREACHER gallery.Big Flat Art Show consists primarily of work from four series, each an exploration of material and, much like their maker, a triumph against delineations. His pieces will be on display through April 25th, and after his fantastic opening reception earlier this month, there are still a few stunning pieces available to purchase in person or online at shop.preacher.co. For gallery viewings, please contact Jason Archer (512) 560-2080, designatedbadass@gmail.com. There will also be a closing ceremony and artist talk on April 25th from 6-9pm.

     

      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.
