LIVE on the Plaza-October 9th
Thank you so much if you attended the Plaza District Festival, we had a great time! There is still more Plaza District fun ahead with our second Friday artwalk, LIVE on the Plaza this Friday!
We are pleased to introduce our newest art and retail space, parts&labor, which will host their grand opening during LIVE! The opening reception will feature 2 local artists: Debbie Curtis, who paints unique vintage barbie art on canvas and wallpaper. She tries to temper wild abandon with light control, and lets the viewer’s eye fill in the details. Her goal is simple – to capture your curiosity, bring you closer, and reward you for taking the time to look. The second artist is Wade Crow, who uses images from personal experience to try and convey how he felt during that experience using color and movement to make the audience experience visually what he did physically. Style-wise it’s graffiti pop. The artwork will be available for purchase. Parts&labor’s goal is to encourage local patronage, local artists and a locals only feel (though outsiders are warmly welcomed).
DNA Galleries will host Caleb Jacks from Texas. His illustrations are humorous, intricate and lighthearted, seeking truth out of our everyday lives. be sure to stop by! Collected Thread will have plenty of handmade accessories to keep you warm this winter, and then head over to Velvet Monkey Salon who is proud to have local rock band, Psymblence preform from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. as well as Tribella (amazing all girl band from Austin, TX) preform from 9:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. This is a show you will not want to miss.
