East Austin Studio Tour 2018 Pop-up Edition

The East Austin Studio Tour is a free, annual, self-guided art event spanning two weekends in November. This year it will be November 10–11 and 17–18.

For EAST this year I will be part of a pop-up exhibition at the new location of Pump Project Art Complex in partnership with Almost Real Things. As one on the studio members, I would normally be opening my workspace, but this year I'll be participating in a temporary pop-up show. We will be moving into our new studios fully when construction on the new location is finished.

I'll be displaying my recent oil paintings and drawings as well as prints of my work. Along with my artwork, the exhibition will feature 22 other local artists. Come to see me at tour stop #560!

Address: 1600 Pleasant Valley Road, Austin, Texas
Dates: November 10-11 & 17-18
Times: 11am–6pm every Saturday and Sunday


Work in Brooklyn, Album Art, and Etsy!

I am excited to be part of a group show of small works  at Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. If you’re in the city this summer, you can see my piece Desiccated 15 alongside great works by many artists from New York and around the world. Go to Trestle Gallery’s website to see photos of the show and all of the work included. 

The second place you can find my work this summer is on the cover of the new album Nights and Weekends by Teddy Glass. You can see my piece Desiccated 10 on the album at their in-store performance at Waterloo Records at 5 pm on August 22.
