Oh, you made us blush!

What a year for the gallery!

Major kudos came this week by way of The Austin Chronicle’s annual Best of Austin reader’s poll!

Best Art Gallery: Women and Their Work

For over 30 years, Women and Their Work has fought the notion that art is the province of men. The gallery focuses on a much more contemporary conversation – with shows ranging from Ann Wood’s disturbing pastorals to Lauren Kelley’s meditations on race. And the gift shop is one of Austin’s finest, a jewel within a jewel.

Thanks to all who voted! We’re honored to be recognized for putting our all into our mission and wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the amazing art community in Austin. On that note, congratulations also to the Blanton Museum for their Best Museum Award and to the creative and industrious folks at Big Medium for East Austin Studio Tour’s Best Arts Festival and Best Place to See Local Art.

Back in May, the Austin Critic’s Table took special note of an impressive number of our exhibiting artists–nominating four different shows from the previous year and even more artists who have exhibited here. We couldn’t have been more excited when Laurie Frick, whose May show here at the gallery, Quantify Me, garnered attention both locally and nationally, won a best artist award.

If you haven’t made it over to see Ann Wood’s “disturbing pastorals” (Violent Delights), come soon! We’re taking the show down next Monday (Nov. 19th) and will begin installing Lauren Kelley’s True Falsetto, a video-based exhibition.
