Vanishing Austin / True Blues, at right, is an homage to the art of tatoo in blue, and one of five prints included in the upcoming group exhibit Singing the Blues: Art in One Hue. A unique show featuring the work of seven Austin artists, sculptors, painters and photographers (including my own) all working in a hue of blue, the opening party is Thursday, October 23 from 6-9pm with live blues to put the mood in the show's theme. Drop in to the new Gallery at AMPLIFY, 2608 Brockton Drive (one block North of Burnet and Braker) for the party and enjoy the show, some wine, some food, tatoo'd or not. Wearing blue: optional.
What's old is new again, but sadly, what's old is often ripe for sacrifice. Here's my homage to Austin's irresistible scenic gumbo --Vanishing Austin, my on-going photography project that records the Austin I first fell in love with, and sounds a visual alarm to what we stand to lose in the face of potentially insensitive development. My images of Austin in transition contrast the often-contradictory beauty of the old juxtaposed against the new. Visit VanishingAustin.com to view a slide show of the series.
