Oh, springtime. Our MasMasMas Spring Fling last week popped off beautifully. Silky Shoemaker cast a spell on Women & Their Work.
Afterward, No Mas Bodas played the dreamiest sounds. Goosebumps y’all!
Then, with lots of help from fantastic volunteers, we packed up the Texas Biennial show in one afternoon. Next, we set about installing Megan Geckler’s upcoming exhibition Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme. We had some awesome students from Eastside Memorial High helping Megan tie and stretch the thousands of cords of flagging tape that will comprise her site-specific masterpiece.
Megan’s show opens this Thursday, April 16 at Women & Their Work, with a reception from 6-8pm.
And finally, our Gala Ganesh spring fundraiser is this Saturday, April 18th.
Gala Ganesh benefits our Arts Education Outreach Programs, which bring thousands of kids from underserved Austin schools into contact with art and art programs at Women & Their Work every year. It’s taking place amidst the succulents and twinkling lights at Big Red Sun, with an Indian dance showcase by Anuradha Naimpally, a bhangra soundtrack courtesy of DJ Orion, catering by Fête Accompli, and an unbelievable silent auction with art from Julie Speed, Kelly Fearing, Elaine Bradford, Jules Buck Jones, and many more.
