This year, the Art City Austin Festival presents Gallery 35, which will showcase specially-created artwork by contemporary abstract impressionist Roi James and will benefit Art Alliance Austin. The event includes a multi-course dinner by local chefs Nicholas Yanes of Juniper and Uncle Nicky’s and Melissa Carroll of Le Politique. The dinner will be paired with fine wines by Advanced Sommelier Paul Ozbirn and art-inspired cocktails by Nickel City and Uncle Nicky’s partner, Travis Tober. The night will incorporate live performances by Austin “Music Hall-of-Famer” Bill Carter, multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Rhodes and local artist and musician Bale Creek Allen on the drums. For an immersive experience, each element – from food and beverage to music – will be inspired by the work James’ is privately showcasing that evening. Tickets are limited for the event. Gallery 35 guests will also receive valet parking and complimentary 2-day VIP admission with VIP lounge access at Art City Austin Festival on April 13-14.
The ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice’ is here with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing. The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.
