Well, slap me green! I thought the AP ass-kissin’ subsided after Okay Mountain and the Blanton set up shop. People are still givin’ the man props. I mean rightfully so, after all, he’s finally exhibiting in Miami this year.
It’s not that I don’t think the galleries should participate, because I do think they belong. Its just that the event is a studio tour. As in an artist’s studio. Go discover art that you’re not likely to find in a gallery. Here in Austin or elsewhere.
I have a two hour window in which to sees the tour. My strategy is to sees as much as possible:
- 64 – Women In The Studios @ IDEA
- et al @ 701 Tillery
- 49 – SOL-ART
- 43 – Bolm Studios (Big Medium)
- 40 – Pump Project Art Complex
- 301 Chicon St.
- 14 – Okay Mountain Studios
I’m kinda ‘shamed to say it, but I finally made it out to 1906. Its their last show, but it looks good.
If I had more time, I’d like to stop by and say hi to:
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
