A Few February Austin Art Shows

If you are feeling like getting out of the house after watching all those great art documentaries (see Feb. 14th post), here’s some art happenings you may want to check out in the next few days.

“Mixed Media Experiences” by Leslie Kell

Jan 30-Feb 25, 2012_Scarborough Building LOBBY_101 W. 6th St. Austin, TX 78701

Lobby Hours M-F 7am-6pm, Sat 7am-1pm

Leslie creates beautiful 3-D quilt patterns out of photographs she has taken at various locations from the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center to the Alamo.  By re-contextualizing modern scenes into this traditional art form, Leslie creates comfort while also introducing something new and riveting. Some of her pieces look like kaleidoscopes and all make you want to fall right into them. More info at: http://kelldesigns.com/
