Austin Working Artists Pages

Hi! My name is Tom Gordon d'Avila - - and I'm the founding Organizer of Austin Working Artists. My new Co-organizer, Chrys Grummert, and I would like to start an ongoing commentary about the theory of art and other issues, but we want to separate our contributions from the "Discussions" blog to emphasize their importance. (Sounds pretentious, but it won't be...)

So the following "pages" are our observations about the Austin art scene - at least from a theoretical viewpoint, since neither of us lives within the Austin city limits - and what's going on around Texas in terms of world-class museum exhibits which I usually attend, and various juried events that Chrys is more directly "up" on, since he has won two of them in recent years (Austin Art Boards in 2011 and an Honorable Mention in 2013, with 200+ entrants including myself and just ten winners each year, and the People's Gallery, opening at City Hall in late February, 2014, which is a high honor) plus he's a pristine painter to boot! (More about that later...)

Since few of you seem motivated to take advantage of the opportunity for doing something potentially useful, like hosting an actual AWA meetup, where connections could be made between artists and the occasional collector which might result in an actual sale or commission, Chrys and I will give "Keeping Austin Working Artists on Life Support for a While Longer" a shot. (For anyone who hasn't met me, I have a dry sense of humor that borders on seemingly harsh criticism, for which I apologize.) ~TGd'Avila
