I will be showing some art in 2 venues this weekend.  Tonight from 6 to 10pm is the opening of Mexic-Arte Museum’s Mix N Mash show which I made a super new and fun piece for. Tickets are $25 and my buddies James Huizar, Randy Muniz, and Tony Diaz will also have pieces in this show. Nothing but 12×12 inch panels here.  For a full list of the artists and all the details click here.

Tomorrow the Maranda Pleasant Gallery will be holding their annual 12×12 box show with every piece priced at $100 . Some of the proceeds will go to Explore Austin. There is no cover for this exhibit and you can even go before the madness from 10am to 6pm to do some early purchasing. The party is from 6pm to 10pm. A few friends will be showing work here as well including: Jeremy Burks, Will Bryant, and Zach McDonald. Apparently 25 pieces have already sold! So go, go, GOOOO!

Sex and Death Art Show

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I was invited to be a part of The Sex and Death show over at the The Fifth Gallery in downtown Austin. The opening was last night but the work will be up until November 13th when there will be a closing reception.

My favorite piece in the show was by none other than my good buddy, Jeremy Burks. He is what they call “mad talented.”

FRIDAY ART: Black Cock Rising

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

I’m back!! The last 2 weeks have been pretty hectic. We moved to east 6th street and we are loving it! Now, i’m ready to share some work with you.

My friend and amazing artist, Jeremy Burks, told me about a call for art that local Austin band Black Cock put out in order to get some art on the walls of The Mohawk for a music/art show they will be hosting there in a few days. Thank you Jeremy!

Here is what I made with acrylics and spray paint on a wood panel:

Artist Jeremy Burks

Monday, April 27th, 2009

My good friend Jeremy recently participated in a group show over the easter weekend. The show was titled Biblical Proportions and was split up into two nights. Friday night (the night Jeremy’s opening was) was the old testament show and Saturday was the new testament opening.

The artists were to take any part of the bible, within their chosen testament, and transform it into a piece of art. Jeremy chose the Death of Sisera which resides in the book of Judges. 

 

Pretty eerie stuff.

Jeremy just got his site up and you can follow along here: www.jeremyburksart.com. I’m excited to see what else he comes up with.
