Advanced Young Artists: Teen Artist + Mentor Exhibition // July 11 – August 9, 2014

AYA_Postcard_FINAL-front (1)

The Contemporary Austin’s Advanced Young Artists education initiative pairs ten professional artist-mentors with ten exemplary high school art students. Together, they work collaboratively over seven months in the artist’s studio space. Hours of conversation, exploration of new mediums, and discoveries related to navigating a multigenerational creative experience culminate in this display of the resulting work from all twenty artists.

Iceberg // May 30 – June 21, 2014

                             ICEBERG 5

Work by the 2016 M.F.A. candidates at the University of Texas at Austin encompassing five disciplines; painting, sculpture, photography, transmedia and printmaking. Each participant selecting a small percentage from the large amount of work made in the past year. Iceberg represents the overall feeling of creating massive amounts of work with the idea that the public will only see a small fraction of this process. With this concept comes the exciting notion of individually displaying snippets of our work while together constructing a truly interdisciplinary show; representing provocative trends within the greater art world through a tiny fraction of artists in Austin.
