Happy Spring and specifically Happy April! It’s my month. I really love Spring when the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and the sun is shining. So much new life and new growth always inspires me. It makes me want to create and grow and change as well. So here is what I have coming up with art shows!
Every spring semester I participate in the Little Artist Big Artist mentorship program with Chula League. This year I was an artist mentor for two fifth grade girls at Allison Elementary. We had a great time making yarn paintings, even though it is always a challenge to keep 11 year olds interested in such a tedious technique. See their art and bid on it at https://www.32auctions.com/laba2019 . The opening reception is the evening of Friday, April 26th at Mondo Gallery..
A chance to see a large group of my art all at once and eat delicious food is coming up starting April 30th. I have a solo show at Magnolia Cafe West, a staple of the Austin community on Lake Austin Blvd. The reception is Tuesday, April 30th from 5-7 pm. Snacks and drinks available, plus stay for dinner! And if you miss that reception, you have no excuses to not see the show. Magnolia Cafe is open 24/8 (as they say) and my art is up until June 4th.
On May 4th I am supporting Bikes Across Borders with a piece in their silent auction being held at Treasure City Thrift on May 4th from 7-10 pm. Food, drinks, raffles, live music and bike related art!
Once again I am participating in the Pet Portrait Pop Up Show with VSA Texas. Donate $85 to VSA Texas and send in a photo of your pet and you will get an original portrait by a local artist (could be me!) The big portrait reveal will be on Saturday, May 18th from 3:00-4:30 pm at Ground Floor Theatre Gallery. Find out more at https://vsatx.org/2019/04/11/paws-and-claws-pet-portraits/
I hope to see you out at some of these events. Happy Spring!
