EAST is here. (Artcrawl over there) Austin artists do it longer!
And even though my calendar isn’t completely updated,there are a bunch of openings tonight. You’ve got Mexic-Arte, Lora Reynolds, CRL, and Art Palace openings, MASS, AVB @ SVT and Co-Lab are doing special EAST shows and I think a new gallery is being birthed: Birdhouse Gallery.
I’m continually surprised as to who links to this site and leaves comments. Brian Gibb from Public Trust (and Art Prostitute) left a very timely comment on an older post.
I don’t have time to get into it this morning, but I do want to make an observation of sorts. With money in the situation that it is worldwide, the outcome of EAST is going to be very important. Is Austin committed to its cultural (visual arts specifically) communities on all levels?
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
