Austin Museum Day: Encaustic Demo

I will be giving a demo in encaustic at The Contemporary Art School @ Laguna Gloria this Sunday between 3-4 PM in Studio 3. The grounds at Laguna Gloria are a great place to stroll through and this weekend they have some great new exhibits going up from Miriam Vitale and Liam Gillick, and a live performance of “Inuksuit” @ 2pm, all of which looks like a blast to see in person.

The Contemporary just received a grant award of $9 million dollars to create a sculpture garden on the Laguna Gloria grounds. Charles Atlas, Tom Friedman, Orly Genger, Charles Long, Tom Sachs and Do Ho Suh are a few of the artists names being considered for commissions. This art museum is really progressing fast and is exciting to be a part of. Keep an eye on it in the coming months for some great events. They also have lectures, art talks and openings on a regular basis.

I am excited about the prospect of a work installed by Do Ho Suh on the grounds!
