Women & Their Work

Artist Talk: Ann Johnson
It's the not knowing that burns my Sole: experimental printmaking
Thursday, February 5, 6-7:30 pm
Join us in welcoming Houston based artist Ann Johnson to Women & Their Work as part of the city wide celebration of PrintAustin! Johnson will discuss her experimental printmaking process that includes intaglio on feathers and leaves, iron relief prints, and incorporating found objects and family photos into her prints. Her work often addresses African American genealogy, family folklore and legacy. Her delicate sensitivity to texture and combined elements creates moments that feel intimate while simultaneously addressing broad social issues. Johnson's pop up print and mixed media show will provoke and entice. Questions from the audience are welcomed.

City of Austin

Hello Lamp Post: Austin Launch Party
February 12, 4-6 pm
Republic Square Park, 422 Guadalupe Street
The hidden life of Austin's street furniture will come to light next month with the launch of Hello Lamp Post:Austin, an international art project created by London-based designers Pan Studio which invites people to strike up conversations with familiar objects around the city using text messaging.
The project has been commissioned by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division of the Economic Development Department in celebration of the Art in Public Places program's 30th anniversary year, and in partnership with Art Alliance Austin. Starting February 12, anyone can text the official Hello Lamp Post phone number and "wake up" lamp posts, mail boxes, hydrants, or even buildings and discover what these objects have to say.
A short video about the project, starring the streets of Austin, is available now at www.hellolamppostaustin.com.
