The 2011 Texas Biennial, showcasing the work of 49 Texas artists, is on display in Austin, Houston and San Antonio. There are also 60 Biennial-inspired exhibitions running throughout the state, so put this on your calendar if you’re up for a little viewing pleasure.
The Texas Biennial runs through May 14, 2011. In Austin, you can catch parts of the exhibit at seven locations…make a day of it! Check out their Web site for more locations, dates and times.
Shannon Cannings is my favorite of the artists, by far.
I’ve also come to realize that I don’t fully understand sculptural “installations”. I enjoy art that can be owned, but the idea of having something installed in a gallery (like a huge, statement-making, sculptural piece) doesn’t make sense to me. No one gets to take that home! /:
I think I need to broaden my horizons.
