Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously.
East Austin Studio Tour 2012 – Day One
Today my friend Jill and I spent about 5 hours visiting all the painting studios (and more) at Pump Project, Pump Project Satellite, and the Bolm Road complex (which includes Big Medium, Pigoata Studios, and Bay6 Gallery and Studios). What an amazing amount of wonderful art, and as always, it’s so fun to see old friends and meet new ones.
Specifically, here are links to the studios we visited:
Here is a gallery of images from today’s art outing:
*Artist images: I tried to identify the artist whose work is in the photos, but not all paintings had artist info cards. Feel free to let me know if something needs to be corrected.
