Apr 18th to May 22nd — Mettle: ACC Alumni Art Invitational 2016
Location: Rio Grande Campus Kramer Gallery, Bldg 3000
Time: Artists’ Reception: Thursday, April 21, 6-8 pm
The Austin Community College Art Department will hold its first invitational alumni exhibition titled Mettle: ACC Alumni Invitational 2016 in the Rio Grande Campus Kramer Gallery. This exhibition will run from April 18th through May 22nd with a reception on Thursday, April 21st from 6-8pm.
Mettle features the work of three alumni: Pamela Tajmajer, Moses Tsai and Michael Villarreal. Together, the works complement one another and reflect bold artistic directions since the artists’ foundational work at ACC. Villarreal’s quirky bulbous shapes and artificial surfaces alongside Tajmajer’s soft tactile woven materials and cascading wall sculptures contrast with Tsai’s life-size bronze nudes.
This exhibition is included in the West Austin Studio Tour (WEST) and will be open 11am - 6pm on the weekends of May 14th - 15th & 21st - 22nd. An ACC student art fair and student performances will accompany the exhibition during the WEST weekends.
All events at the Kramer Gallery are free and open to the public. Free parking for the reception and WEST is available at the ACC parking garage on 12th Street.
