WELCOME TO THE EAST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR S a t u r d a y No v e mb e r 1 8 t h

&

S u n d a y N o v e m b e r 1 9 th

10 am - 5 pm E.A.S.T. has become a great way for east Austin artists to meet and connect with a large and diverse section of people from our city and beyond. November 18th & 19th is your chance to stroll through the working spaces of over 120 artists, and converse with them about how and why they do what they do. This studio tour first began in 2003 as a one day event with only twenty-eight studios. Now, with eighty-six studios, one would be hard pressed to visit every artist even over the course of the entire weekend. That's where this book comes in as it gives you the opportunity to preview the work of every artist on the tour. While this book was designed and compiled by us, it was authored by the artists themselves. Each artist decided on which image to publish, and word for word what to say about themselves. We find this not only gives you a glimpse into their work, but often into their personality as well. So read carefully, make notes, and figure out who you don't want to miss. Then, when the weekend of November 18th and 19th arrives, visit the studios, meet the artists, and hopefully come home with some new art to enrich your life. The studios are all located east of I-35, west of 183, south of 51st street, and north of the river. The map on pages 8 and 9 shows the location of all the studios, and the numbers refer to the studio numbers in red on the index on pages 6 and 7. Larger, more detailed fold-out maps are also available from the studios and will be distributed around town in the weeks before the tour. This is a self guided tour, so pick up a map and get to it. Come rain or shine, we'll be waiting. EAST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 5305 Bolm Rd #12 Austin TX 78721 512.385.1670 info@eastaustinstudiotour.com www.eastaustinstudiotour.com

SODALITAS 1000 CRANES PROJECT As part of the 2006 E.A.S.T. experience, this book includes a project initiated by the Sodalitas Art Group that is contingent on the participation of those attending the studio tour. You may have noticed the origami crane theme running through this book, and some of you may already be familiar with the origami crane as a symbol of peace, and more specifically the tradition of '1,000 Cranes for Peace.' For those of you who are not familiar with the origins of this tradition, it lies with the story of Sadako Sasaki. Sadako was just two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. While she suffered no immediate injury, the effects of her exposure caught up with her some ten years later and she fought a courageous battle with leukemia. After she had become sick, Sadako’s best friend told her that the crane, which is a sacred bird in Japan, grants a wish to someone who folds one thousand paper cranes. After hearing this, Sadako immediately began folding cranes for her one wish: to get well again. Her health gradually deteriorated and Sadako began to wish instead for world peace, that children could live safe from the effects of wars. Sadly, she did not finish. When Sadako died in October of 1955, she had folded a total of 644 cranes. Her classmates folded the remaining cranes in time for her funeral. This tradition has continued and the paper crane has remained a symbol of peace for children around the world. Sodalitas is trying to collect at least 1,000 folded cranes over the course of the E.A.S.T. weekend to be added to a continually growing installation at Bolm Studios. To aid in this endeavor, this book includes three pages of patterned origami paper for you to use located on pages 45, 97, and 159; as well as instructions for folding the crane on the opposite page. We hope everyone who visits Bolm Studios during the tour will bring with them a crane, ambitious individuals are welcome to bring as many as they wish. All you need is a square of paper and a moment or two to fold, reflecting on the possibility of peace, and what can be accomplished by people working together towards a common goal.

Liliana Wilson Art Acrylic | Painting | Drawing

Chilean artist Liliana Wilson creates richly colored paintings and drawings with images often drawn from the subconscious. “My images come from the subconscious. Many of the figures I create appear in “other-world” environments. Realities collide on multiple levels while beauty emanates from the subjects. Often my compositions represent moments in the lives of individuals that serve as metaphors for those lives. Recently my work hats shifted to incorporate the universe and its beauty as a

Painting

Over the last year I’ve been interested in the symbolic nature of classic children’s stories, Aesop’s Fables in particular, and their application to our modern day lives. I’ve also been working on a number of domestic themes in order to develop technique. My hope is to eventually combine human expression, symbolism, and a classical technique into each work. Perhaps not directly on the lines of Carevaggio or Bosch, but some dark and dirty place between. I take great pleasure in following my inspiration, and I just hope this comes out in the work. 1402 E 2nd St | 633-9728 | casylva.com

Barry George Sculpture Studio Metal Barry George began creating found object sculptures in steel in 1987, half a mile from his present studio. The found object, along with the ever stranger and scarier world that we live in...., has always been his muse. But a trip to Antigua, Guatemala in 1992 and a chance encounter with a metal working studio there taught him new methods, forging sheet steel to incorporate in his works. The sculptures today combine both found and forged elements, resulting in anything from a bird that fits in your hand to one that hovers 5 feet over your head, figurative works, many of them kinetic, all juxtaposing organic next to manufactured mechanical forms. The works often make social or political comments using whimsy and humor. They can be indoor or outdoor sculpture, just “art” for your living room, or functional, such as bird baths and bird feeders meant for the yard. After you visit the studio go see his “Do it Yourself Icarus” at city hall (through Feb. ‘07) and ride his pedal powered wings to the sun or go up to the third floor there and visit the kinetic-sound sculpture tree. This will be my last year to participate in E.A.S.T., so please come visit my studio one last time.

Clayworks Studio Gallery Clay

The Clayworks gallery is stocked with handmade wall sconces in traditional, Southwestern and Craftsman styles, as well as coordinating tile address numbers and plaques. We also feature tile murals, tables and wheel-thrown pottery. During E.A.S.T. visitors are invited to tour the production area where we mix our own clay and fashion it into finished pieces. Expect to see tile making, wheel throwing and glazing demonstrations. Firing, the last and trickiest stage of the process, requires both skill and luck for success. Since time immemorial potters have been placing tiny clay good luck pieces in the kiln along with their wares. The little Kiln God presides over the firing, fending off cracks and other unfortunate outcomes. Visitors are invited to make their own Kiln Gods during the tour and leave it with us to be loaded along with our regular ware into what should be an exceptionally lucky kiln. Come back in a few days to pick up your creation at no charge. 28

THE NEXT FAMOUS ARTIST My name is Caroline Martinez and I am an artist from inspiration. My artistic abilities came to me after my oldest daughter went through a life-threatening illness.

Dillo Glass Studio

Glass

The studio is set up to do warm glass fusing and slumping. The two artists that conceived the studio are former glass blowers that work at Armadillo Clay & Supply. They needed a place to express themselves and warm glass was a more practical studio for them to set up. The studio is open for glass artists who need a space to create.

Jewelry | Chess Sets | Sculpture | Portraits in 2 & 3 dimensions | 2D art

Laura Sturtz creates jewelry, sculpture, art chess sets, and 2-dimensional art in a variety of media including: metals, clay, wood, paint, pastels, printmaking, photography, or mixed media. She has displayed internationally and has received several awards in national juried shows. She is currently an art faculty member at Austin Community College and the Art School of Austin Museum of Art. Laura says, “Making something useful appeals to my pragmatic side. Part of the reason I make chess sets, ‘furniture’, small sculptures, and jewelry is that I like the viewer to become tactilely involved with my work. The piece changes as the viewer becomes physically involved with it, either by manipulation, being worn, sat upon, or placed in a daily living atmosphere.” 3401 E 4th St | 282-9480 | www.io.com/twinck | twinck@io.com

Painting

I am of the mind that painting suspends knowledge regardless of its “style�. This suspension, or transference, is a purposeful and positive disconnection from understood and taken-for-granted ways of knowing and percieving. Painting engenders space where things can be examined in a renewed context. These thoughts are the underpinnings of what about painting is important to me. I regard what I do with a sense of irony concerning both my life and the life of painting as an historical practice and a poetic circumstance. Recent accomplishments: two person exhibit with Adreon Henry at the Dougherty Arts Center, solo exhibit at Bolm Studios, cover art for New Orleans Review, Loyola University, a literary magazine. 4709 E 5th St | 385-7220 | andystmartin.com | andystmartin@hotmail.com

He recently returned from Ireland where he hosted his most recent exhibition, “Strawboys”. “Most of my recent work relates to Irish history and mythology and how one’s understanding and perception of these elemental issues can take on new meanings in a different cultural context. Maybe I’m just trying to see the Irish in everybody.”

Surgeoil Acrylic and Paintskin on Canvas 7 ft 5 in x 10 ft

2006

Taylor Winn’s fresh take on Abstract Expressionism brings new zest and accessibility to large scale paint and clay abstractions. The raw process of creating art is clearly valued here and viewers are mesmerized anew with the sincerity of this young man’s work. Winn’s paintings, up to 8 feet tall by 14 feet wide, feature unusually appealing color choices and striking chemical reactions between selected paints. His clay ‘stacks’ successfully distill the primal and the mod. “Each medium affects the other. The technique-driven parameters of clay sculpture bring balance and thoughtful constructions to the paintings while the painting steers the clay work away from conventional forms.” 702 Shady Ln Studio C | c: 971-1540 | h: 330-0012 | taylorwinnart.com | taylorwinn16@yahoo.com

Early works involved mixing paints and resin with concrete stain, oils, bubble solution, glass, pencil shavings, Styrofoam and metallic egg tempera. Winn’s current work on the Cubist Series and Squares Series features geometric themes with emphasis on color, shading and space. Winn’s early interest in origami is evident throughout the works. 66

Oil | Acrylic Painting | Collage | Collaboration

The short history of the Painterly Handsomes Group can trace its origin to a chance meeting of painting students at San Marcos’s Texas State University. Through the visual methods of Chris Holloway, Garrett Lacy and Frederick Tabares are different, these individual approaches provide the group drive to continue producing creatively. A majority of these works are done as a result of conversation(s) that occur in and out of their studio. It is because the Austin art community shares “conversation” in the same manner that the Painterly Handsomes Group has; the trio has agreed to take residence in the state’s capitol. 68

Jaime Jo Fisher Jewelry | Art Objects The jewelry of Jaime Jo Fisher is a refreshing mix of traditional silver work and collage. Many of the stone settings are, in fact, found objects. These range from bits of plastic and glass to something as unusual as dryer lint! Jaime’s willingness to explore combinations of found objects and set them together in “families” gives her work a contemporary sensibility with a timeless quality. Jaime is a recent arrival to Austin’s East Side and is excited to be participating in the E.A.S.T. tour for the first time.

Angela Piehl Painting

Angela Piehl is a painter who works primarily in oil on birch panel. Her recent works are abstracted from photo sources and small-scale still life arrangements. These pieces are an investigation of mass media images that relate to gender. “I am juxtaposing abstract moments from the backgrounds of advertising in ‘lifestyle’ magazines with the luxury items often used in contemporary culture to create a particular gender identity. These moments are chosen for their expressive qualities, their capacity for nostalgia, their potential malleability, and their resonance (or confliction) with my own identity. I am creating an environment in my paintings that is grandiose-overwhelming and seductive, yet ultimately very empty and lonely. My investigation stems from the observation of distress as it relates to gender stereotypes and the many complex levels this distress can embody.” Angela Piehl lives in East Austin and works at Bolm Rd. studios #2. She teaches Studio Art at Texas State University, and has lived in Austin (off and on again) since 1993. 74

Design | Build

Assemblage design/build is an idea that started out big, but grew small. Assemblage has been an art school student, a freelance writer, a musician, a maker of props and film scenery, a record store clerk, a cabinet shop drone, a high school drop-out, a hip cafĂŠ waiter, a remodeling contractor, a father, a friend, a citizen of late-night, dark and smoky rooms thick with music and sex and vain, secret notions of aesthetic glory. Assemblage is a process, not a noun. Assemblage makes stuff. Cool stuff. The kind of stuff you like. The kind of stuff you need. The kind of stuff that costs too much for you and pays too little for us. If you can think it and convey it, Assemblage can design it. Assemblage can build it.

The Bewildering World Charcoal on Paper 28" x 40"

I am working on narrative charcoal drawings that usually involve animals. The animals are depicted in situations that are intended to suggest human dilemmas. Unlike animals, humans are blessed with and burdened by the condition of almost perpetual decision-making. I am interested in the moral, psychological, philosophical and emotional factors that inform the decisions we make or avoid. On the side I make small still life paintings of humble, ephemeral objects. These paintings keep me practiced in working from direct observation and provide a structured way to explore the formal aspects of painting that most interest me. 5305 Bolm Rd. #7/8 | 350-8825 | hillarylmc@yahoo.com

Sodalitas Art Group Painting | Collage | Mixed Media Installation

Sodalitas Art Group is Shea Little, Joseph Phillips and Jana Swec. A year after forming Bolm Studios in 2002, we started the East Austin Studio Tour, and more recently were one of the founding partners of the Texas Biennial in 2005. To us, these are more than just peripheral projects - we consider this part of our art. Because we're three people attempting to work together, collaboration is an ongoing theme in our work. Collaboration, cooperation, working towards a goal unattainable as an individual, but achievable as a group. This isn't easy, and some of us are not idealists. Finding ourselves constantly challenged, we understand the difficulties and obstacles that can impede the progress of cooperative endeavors. One of our most recent projects has been a series of psuedo-anthropological 'Walks' through our city; picking up debris, discussing systems, the way we live, move and interact as a community. Attempting to gain a better undersatnding of how we function as a group, and how we function on a larger scale as a society. This project is currently the focus of an exhibit at Sewanee University in Tennessee. For E.A.S.T 2006, we are encouraging people on the tour to bring folded origami cranes to Bolm Studios, hoping to collect at least 1,000 cranes as part of an interactive installation in our gallery.

Meg Stone Ink on Paper

I design drawings that are meant to be entered into and explored. They contain a great deal of information that is heavily influenced by my extensive background in figurative and abstract sculpture. I use a series of patterns inspired by connections and actions found within the body and in nature. Geometric elements create a labyrinth of three dimensional spaces in which numerous figures are layered one on top of another. The figures themselves reflect a childlike stream of consciousness motivated by memory and emotion. The drawings are both primitive and illustrative, creating a landscape where conscious and unconscious images co-exist. The Room Ink on Paper 22� x 30� 2006

One night, about four years ago, a group of us got together for a bbq/pool party that went late into the night, and turned into a marathon game of Marco Polo. My brother took pictures that night - this series comes from those. I complete each small painting (5" x 7") in one session, forcing a quick, gestural representation, one that mimics the movement and unconstrained, carefree fun of the game and that night. 92

Abstract Expressionist Oils on Canvas

Arthur Simone is an abstract-expressionist oil painter who has worked to reestablish himself in Austin after an unexpected move from New Orleans following a curious little storm. Growing up wanting to be a cartoonist, he fell in love with the free expression of line and color from artists like Jackson Pollock and Hassel Smith, and his own paintings just get bigger and bigger. Simone invites the discovery of danger, humor, and comfort in several layers of distorted shapes using a palette of sharp yellows, fleshy reds, and stark whites. His large home studio in East Austin makes him giddy. 3204 Kay St | 773-575-3303 | arthursimone.com | arthur@arthursimone.com

Benne Rockett Encaustic | Paper Casting Concrete Casting Benne is a storyteller fundamentally, and has probably been influenced by a rich tradition of Southern literature and storytelling as a part of her New Orleans heritage. She is also a story-listener or facilitator, a therapist and teacher who listens and helps people turn that story around to see all the sides of it. Her love for materials is like a writer’s love of language. It is a visceral and emotional engagement. Benne is a contributing writer to the visual ar ts section of the Austin Chronicle.

Germaine Keller Sculpture | Drawing

My work begins with a manipulated digital photograph of a scene that I construct in the studio or natural environment. Linear computer drawings or wire constructions are then overlaid until the work contains its own inherent integrity and reveals a complete sensory and visual event. I am concerned with the inherent form in randomness; how we perceive order in chaos. I look for congruencies. I look for the inherent logic we mistake for order. 110

Crown of Thorns

Photography for me is a series of steps moving towards the object that reflects my own personal view. It is a delightful process often surprising in the framing and the capture. Then the work begins to hone the image until a print results that is true to the original vision.

Greg Davis Photography Digital World Travel Photography

Blanket Weaver, Vietnam

Traveling around this great big, exciting, lonely, lush, sad, bustling, wondrous, lavish, friendly, beautiful, intriguing, humorous, spiritual, generous, adaptive, dangerous, creative, sincere, simple, ever changing world of ours had been on my life list of things to do for over a decade. The opportunity to travel around the world presented itself to me in early 2004. I evaluated my choices and made the decisions that would take my life down a very exciting path, one I had always dreamed of; it would be an experience that would always live within me, mine forever. Welcome to my trip. You may order prints directly from my website, or if you have interest in a custom piece, just let me know your ideas and we will work together to ensure that you get exactly what you want.

Hank Waddell Sculpture | Wood | Metal | Paint

I explore this relationship between nature and industry in my sculpture. I approach a once living and breathing thing and use my intuition and senses to bring new life to it, allowing it to continue to speak. I begin with "an Original", a branch or stump or root of a tree that finds me in my daily course. I rarely discover them and if I search they are elusive. I have to wait for them but when Originals find me, they are already laughing, crying, expressing something personal.

Painting | Collage

Scarlett Olson is a native Texan and a graduate of the UT fine arts program. Scarlett's paintings reflect Mexican culture and are influenced by her upbringing in San Antonio as well as living in Mexico. She has several styles that she works in, including abstract landscapes, symbolic paintings influenced from Catholic art, collages and contemporary portraits. Scarlett strives to contrast her traditional history and upbringing with living in the world today, and she especially focuses on the virtual world of on-line commerce and communication. Her newest body of work consists of a series of collages rendered from images on eBay resulting from searches of words like love, hope, truth and beauty. She finds traditional images and collages them with contemporary items on eBay to come up with whimsical combinations. Scarlett currently works at her studio at the Bread Factory and runs Artillery Gallery with four other artists next door. 701 Tillery Suite B-1 | scarlettolson.com

Peter Ortiz Paintings

Everything is a process of growth. When creating many of my works, nature’s essence inspires me- like flowers gently gliding to earth, persons strolling along, or the bud of a flower waiting to show its grandeur. Complementing this essence, music enhances the mood. Many larger paintings begin outdoors. Drenching them with water allows for the color to bleed. This, in turn, inspires the strokes that follow. After sufficient applications they’re brought indoors for detailing before completed. Generally, because they reveal themselves more easily, the energy of smaller works, such as my abstracts, is best captured indoors. 130

I regularly contribute paintings to art galleries and nonprofit organizations in Austin. Using acrylics on canvas I take familiar subjects; city landscapes, everyday items in my kitchen, chairs, houses, cows and chickens, galaxies and UFOs, and combine them to create paintings. I am excited to be part of 2006 E.A.S.T. I will also be hosting my Christmas art show at the In House Gallery.

Elvia Perrin Printmaking Recent work explores the residues and traces of the body surface. My work consists of sectional figures in which I imprint my body onto copper plates, through the printmaking process. The transfer manipulates and distorts the image of self, revealing a skin-like quality. The process modifies and displaces the human form, signifying the relationship between idealism, reality and perception of the physical self. This series of prints, like all of my work confronts the ideas between beauty and femininity.

Pascal Simon Studio Glass Mosaic Munich-born Pascal Simon began working on mosaics in 1996, creating functional art that leaned more toward the crafty side of things. In the decade since, Simon taught herself various techniques and now creates intricate fine art pieces that appear romantic on the surface, but which explore the complexities of compromise in women’s lives. She is well known for her mosaic instruments, which began when she tiled a guitar as a birthday gift for her husband. “I use guitars where the face is warped or the neck is broken. It’s like giving an instrument a new life,” she says.

Michael White Sculpture I am a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, with a BFA in Studio Art. My emphasis lies in the sculptural world, but in particular the technique itself. Every piece I create is the result of a long process, beginning with drawings and an assessment of what skills and abilities I already have. Once I know what things I cannot accomplish, I throw myself into those processes. This way of working results in a piece very different from the original sketch, but affords a great deal of learning and personal development. It has also resulted in many home made tools, including a furnace for casting metal and a small power hammer for shaping metal. This reflects and emphasizes my belief that the journey to the final artwork

Sarah Bird Fiber Arts

I work in salvaged textiles. I use materials drawn from the bottom of the textile “food chain.” The majority of my materials are destined for landfill. I have a passion for lateral creativity. By that I mean the inventive and efficient redesign of existing objects. Up until recently I worked primarily in wool but in the last year I have expanded into cotton, linen and silk. My first love is constructing rag rugs using unusual and nearly lost techniques. I also design one of a kind hats, bags, scarves, and blankets. Most recently, I have become obsessed with children’s clothing. 166

Barbara is also a collector of over thirty different things such as hands, mirrors, wasp and bird nests, faeries and elves, hearts and much more. Barbara’s studio and home have been described as an amazing feast for the eyes. She takes esthetics to a whole new level.
