The repetitive motion of her work allows her time to meditate and each bead is woven with intention. Changarrito is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to the official gallery selection presented by the Mexican cultural authorities. Faithful to their original, informal spirit, Changarritos exist throughout the world, evolving as forums for the sale of original artwork to the general public, presentation of public programs, special curatorial projects, individual and collective exhibitions. 501 Congress Ave – (512) 480-9373 –

19. Neena Buxani – Austin ArtSpace Gallery & Studios Acrylic, gouache My work attempts to create a notion of strength through the use of daring color and inviting texture. When a viewer must resist the urge to touch a piece because she simply wants to experience its energy, I have achieved some success.

I have a general idea of what the background will look like, but it can change during the actual rendering. It’s what I see in that moment in the background. Eventually, it reveals itself to me.

Cliona Gunter

Painting, mixed media, router carved wood, wood relief, spinners I like to mix graphite sticks, prismacolor and acrylic paint. Sometimes it’s mud; sometimes it’s gorgeous. If I clean them up too much they go a bit dead, so I try to err on the raw and vulnerable side. Why do some pieces hum and others don’t? I try for hum daily but there are no guarantees. Come see routered wood images, wooden reliefs, night landscapes, abstracts, game boards and spinners. Artist Studio 1305 Piedmont Ave – (512) 586-9867 – Accessibility: 2, 7

Monoprints, oil painting This year I will be showing my City of Dice mono-prints and a few Morse Code oil paintings. Monoprints are the demolition derby of printmaking, few survive, one prevails, but hopefully fresh and interesting. My Morse code paintings are a punch drunk pattern of knobby dots and dashes of an obsolete tongue fallen on hard times, Tom-tom drum tapping out news on deaf ears and empty cells.

Jeff Bent

Sculpture, ceramics, drawing Nature is beautiful, scary and weird. We live in nature, but feel apart from it. Clay is a great vehicle for exploring the forms of nature and artifice, how the hard edges of the inanimate meet the softer contours of life.

I also often use Old Master’s techniques of colored glazes to create a depth of skin tone, warmth and otherworldliness. Artist Studio 1819 Piedmont Ave – (512) 322-0333 – Accessibility: 6, 7, 8

Hand-carved stone sculpture Exploring a place where geometry and sensuousness meet. Each sculpture hand-carved from a single quarried block or a weathered field stone. First the stone, then an idea, a mental image. The stone’s reality, purity, density, flaws, hardness, fragility. Me, my tools, body, my little aches, impatience, and persistence. And the idea.

Oil painting I paint from life using the expensive mud we call oil paints. I’m interested in any object that may happen to be in front of me.

Photo encaustics and fine photography Why Studio Cygnet? It’s a reference to the story about the ugly duckling that turns out to be a beautiful swan. The ducklings couldn’t recognize the beauty because their only experience was as a duck chick, and not as a cygnet. The moral of the story is my inspiration. There is beauty in all things; we just may need to change who we are to experience it and be allowed to appreciate that beauty.

Bob Swaffar – artStar Pottery

Porcelain thrown, textured, multiple glazes, wood, salt, soda fired Although my professional career was in computers and architecture, I periodically worked with clay. After retiring from the University of Texas, I built my studio and in 2005 I started making pots full time. I work with porcelain fired in atmospheric kiln conditions, such as wood, salt, or soda. My pieces are functional and thrown on a potters wheel emphasizing surface texture and color. Artist Studio 906 W 17th St – (512) 477-7449 – Accessibility: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9


Jamie Kovach

Painting, photography, sculpture Desserts offer a pretty package, concerned as much with form and aesthetic presentation as with content. These treats are symbolic of celebration, play, and reward. Kovach uses these symbols, and others like them, to explore the dichotomy of innocent childhood cravings and beleaguered adult “control”. Artist Studio 1515B Woodlawn Blvd – Accessibility: 2

Jeanne Philquist

Oil on linen I paint relationships described by moments in time. I try to tell a story of our slightly absurd lives and, with humor and empathy, our interactions with our environment, our animals, and one another. Cats intrude on many of my works, but so do bears, goats, dogs, birds and fantasy animals. I hope you will come see my new work. We’ll laugh! Artist Studio 1709 Palma Plaza – (512) 478-9590 Accessibility: 0


Jean Synodinos – guest of Jeanne Philquist

Acrylic, oil pen, gouache, sand, cement, fabric The work is an abstract exploration of the perfect imperfection of curves implied by nature, as well as the lines imposed upon nature by people. Surfaces are highly textured with paints and the occasional injection of fabric, sand, or other materials to build dimension. Pieces are quite purposefully dulled or given multiple coats of high gloss for additional contrast. Artist Studio 1709 Palma Plaza – (512) 740-0013 – Accessibility: 0


Carol Hayman

Printmaking These prints are from a series on manikins, in a surreal presentation of artificial bodies in various stages of decomposition. The dents and chips contrast with the usual decorative role of manikins. The images convey feelings that these figures have a history, a life of their own, momentarily paused, but might continue when the viewer turns away. Artist Studio 1001 Eason St – (512) 477-3099 – Accessibility: 3, 5, 6, 7, 8




Barbara Timko – guest of Carol Hayman

Painting with washes and color pencils on cloth My dreams make powerful pictures of a woman on adventures with her dog companions. On thin translucent cloth, the image is fleshed out with terracotta washes and markers. The negative space is as alluring as the positive. The muted colors enhance the inner world depicted. My goal is to capture attention by a space that becomes a doorway to a meditative state. Artist Studio 1001 Eason St – (512) 296-8685 – Accessibility: 3, 5, 6, 7, 8


Phillip Wade

Oil and acrylic on canvas My fourth West Tour, and I’ve learned the public is always right! It’s boring to me painting the same things, and I had a great response to my interiors, landscapes, portraits and the children’s book paintings inspired by the years I spent at my mother’s place in Cornwall. I’ve been painting and teaching in Austin since 1981, coming from Philadelphia to earn an MFA at UT Austin. Artist Studio 1202 Lorrain St – (512) 658-0465 – Accessibility: 0


Theresa Bayer – guest of Phillip Wade

Acrylic, mixed media, oil, canvas, panel, paper My paintings feature dreamlike scenes of mysterious people, animals, and landscapes and have a storybook quality to them. Symbols inspire me, because they compress complex ideas and philosophies into immediately accessible images. I love portraying the figure and seeing how many different ways it can fit into a fantastic scene. Artist Studio 1202 Lorrain St – Accessibility: 0

Georgia Xydes – guest of Phillip Wade

Eve Larson – guest of Phillip Wade

Oil I come to visual art from the world of ballet. I was a dancer for many years. I imbue my paintings with the romance and movement of the dance. I always look for the beauty, expressiveness and theatricality in life and art. My paintings have an implied story which I leave to the viewer’s imagination.

Frieda Pangestu

Sterling silver, copper, jeweler’s brass and mokume-gane Contemporary Jewelry. Simple geometry with subtle complexity. Strives to achieve a sense of duality, of lightness and substance, of light and shadow, of concealing and revealing, in the hope of elevating the senses. Architectural and sculptural yet wearable and comfortable. Striking yet understated, modern yet timeless, and bold yet quiet. Handcrafted in sterling silver, copper and mokume-gane. Artist Studio 704 Pressler St – (512) 479-7044 Accessibility: 2


Peter Bellonci

Stone sculpture Starting a sculpture is the most difficult part of the whole process. It involves examining the stone for its unique characteristics, and imagining the endless possibilities that it holds. My tools are simple; a hammer, chisels, rasps, rifflers and an eye that evaluates the various ways forward to a balanced form. Artist Studio 615 Oakland Ave – (512) 784-2371 – Accessibility: 3, 6

Co-Lab Projects’ DEMO GALLERY YOUNGSONS Live Free with Guys

Painting and collage YOUNGSONS is the collaborative painting duo of Drew Liverman and Michael Ricioppo. The artists trade turns at every stroke, at every idea point and counterpoint from detail to composition. There is a visual rhyming here, a syncopation, perhaps even a punning. The results are accumulative, energetic, omnivorous, and flirt with but never wholly emerge from the zest of the painting process itself.

Andrea Loomis – guest of Larry Akers

Mostly glass Each piece begins with a spark - evolving through a process of analytical evaluation, thoughts, questions and emotions. Colors, transparency and texture of glass provide me with the language to create an object that is one with its reflections and shadows - stirring the beholder - a moment of surprise, a pause of joy, a memory, an idea - carrying on creativity by prompting the viewer.

Malina Cipleu – guest of Larry Akers

Fused glass, polymer clay My tools for self expression are playing, experimenting, and day dreaming. Ideas develop in layers of glass powder and enamels, evolving in an open conversation between the piece and myself - some dialogs louder than others. The results are abstract fragments of this journey, drawing attention to movement, balance and harmony. Artist Studio 2311 Ridgeview St – (512) 964-4408 – Accessibility: 3, 4 , 5, 6

Steel, oil paint, watercolor I am primarily a sculptor, but I also paint and draw. I mainly work with steel: welded and forged scraps and yard steel.

Acrylic, mixed media My work is a collaboration of intuition and exploration. It’s about a relationship with the materials and paint. It involves control and giving up control.

222. Dameon Lester – Fuzzy – Art for the People Gallery Sculpture, mixed media Lester transforms modest materials into intricate sculptural forms. In this iteration, pipe cleaners reference the open-celled skeletal structures of Radiolaria, a microscopic planktonlike creature. These sculptures portray a complex aesthetic between human and natural production; both systems control and influence each other, vacillating between the familiar, to objects of natural phenomena.

Susi Brister – Fuzzy – Art for the People

Mixed media, photography Brister’s work explores the interplay between the natural world and the synthetic imitations that humans have conceived to recreate nature. Using man-made materials that mimic organic objects and patterned textiles that reference aspects of the natural world, Brister stages and photographs mysterious forms in the landscape as interventions that highlight the slippage between reality and fantasy.

Julie Williams – South Austin Studio

Oil painting, mixed media I am drawn to objects and subject matter that reflect the feminine spirit. Frequently, I choose settings or views that depict a glimpse of a woman’s daily routine or personal attire. If the art evokes a response from the viewer, it’s likely to be one from personal experience. Once the memory is recalled, it becomes a shared experience with the artist - part of our collective feminine mythology. Artist Studio 701 W Mary St – (512) 585-6666 – Accessibility: 3, 5, 6, 7

Abstract painting installation Although my work radiates a resolute materiality in a firm shape, my approach to the world is poetic and very speculative.

Chuck Voelter

Oil and urethane on canvas, hemp canvas, and plywood In painting I’ve found the opportunity to create a world that fuses the literal with the ephemeral, nature and human nature, plants and animals, the macro to the micro; when I paint shapes, with lines or with poured paint, I often seek to mimic forms I know from the human body and the natural world in combinations that evoke a primal familiarity.

313. Lee Ross – Back Painted Glass Studio 103 Back painted glass I am a visual artist who is interested in nontraditional applications of acrylic painting. Currently my work is painting on the back of glass with acrylic paints. To work directly on glass, the composition needs to be reversed, and the order of the layering is switched; from bottom/back to front/top. All images are lit from the front unleashing, the “life” in the paintings. Artist Studio 820 Shelby Ln, Unit #103 – Accessibility: 6

Matthew Warren

Sculpture, printmaking, painting, mixed media, digital I like making neat stuff. I like taking things apart. I like finding new and interesting ways of utilizing and extending the life of otherwise overlooked, expendable materials. Like a hip hop artist samples old jazz, funk and soul records for their tracks, I sample technology, industrial design, manufacturing and popular culture for my works. Math and geometry too. Also humor and comedy. Artist Studio 6509 Bluesky Way – Accessibility: 2, 3, 5, 6


Marilyn Skalberg

Oil, acrylic, ink At once playful and unsettling, these diminutive paintings are metaphors for questions about life: what we see and what we know.

Watching. Marilyn Skalberg is an American artist that works in painting, drawing, and print. Artist Studio 1203 Spearson Ln – (402) 770-7409 – Accessibility: 2, 3, 6
