America Starts Here: Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler

Showing at the Austin Museum of Art

Pictured: America Starts Here, 1988, From the exhibition: America Starts Here: Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler.

I went see the exhibit "America Starts Here: Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler at AMOA downtown.  I also went to the gallery talk today. I love the work, and the ideas behind it. I highly recommend that you make it to this exhibit, if you get a chance.

If I stay long enough in the studio, just stay with the work even if it doesn’t feel great or seem satisfying or directional or conclusive, if I just stay to tend and garden, then my mind gradually yields control to the more automatic labor of painting, and with that comes a sweet spot in the process further down, a worn groove, a sense of ease.
