Weekend Happenings: December 7-8th

We were really excited to read up on the numerous shows that are opening this weekend and had to share what we found. This weekend promises to be a good one. Why not immerse yourself in art?

This Friday, December 7th:

Wardenclyffe presents Dana Ellinger: Stories, Stones and Sticks

Reception Friday December 7th, 6-11 pm

Deconstruction Saturday December 8th, 12-7 pm

Earth art by Dana Ellinger. Dirt, sticks, rocks, spoons, shells, moons
The 1000 year accord story with the help of Judy Marquez
The Carl Marshall story, outsider art from inside a Texas prison.

Clearing out her studio, getting ready for the next phase, Dana Ellinger is sharing her collections from nature, prison art from a deceased friend, stories of her innermost journeys, hand carved spoons and water color moons.

Reception Friday December 7th, 7-11 pm
Through January 5th
Tiny Park Art Space
Leah Haney’s work explores the malleability of space and architectural structures on a two-dimensional plane.  The paintings are examinations of perspective and vanishing points blown out of proportion, perverted by multilayer shapes, hyper-colors, and light. Haney plays with the geometry of a room or building, exploding and distorting interior and exterior space. Architectural history, science fiction, and interior design serve as references and inspiration for these dynamic new works.
Reception Friday December 7th, 7-11 pm
Through December 22nd
New work by Chris Evans and Ashley Watson, exploring “unguarded moments that occur within the public arena.” They totally saw what you did there – and they have the photos to prove it.
Tomorrow, Saturday December 8th:
Reception Saturday December 8th, 7-9 pm
Through December 31st
You Make the Difference explores the nature of personal self-identification through the window of interior decoration. This work is the product of having been raised in a meticulously curated and creative home environment and an ode to the design-heavy era of the 1970s, a time also defined by heavy-handed ideas of individuality and the special flair of a particular perspective.
Reception Saturday December 8th, 7-10 pm
Potentiality will consist of installations reflecting the powerful potential of collective efforts,  inspired by Native American and Japanese cultural traditions. The artists, Nimura and Mintz, will conduct participatory events for the Austin community to create objects that will be included in the exhibition. Held in the UP Collective community room, the artists will prepare for their exhibition in December by having hourly events where they teach the participants how to create part of their installation.
