Don’t miss a single galleryPublished 6:17pm Saturday, July 12, 2014

Under the heat of last August’s sun and in the midst of so much to see, do and hear, it was easy for festival goers (myself included) to miss a gallery or two.
While this August may very well bring that same heat and even more to take in, I’m here to make sure you don’t miss out on any of it. This includes our galleries, which I want to take a minute to run down so we all know what we’re in for.
This year, visual artists will show their work in the Turbine, Dock, Annex and Fourth Avenue galleries as well as the newly and grandly opened ArtWorks Center.
The Turbine Room will be our biggest gallery, featuring professional artists of all mediums and styles, while the Dock gallery just next door will host a few up-and-coming artists.
In the Annex gallery you’ll find fine crafts and see creative demonstrations (think pottery throwing, glass blowing, and calligraphy). And the Fourth Avenue gallery is reserved for young artists from Austin and Pacelli High Schools whose art shows true promise. Those of you who mosey down Main Street will find, nestled on the corner of third and Main, the ArtWorks Center along with must-see artists Joseph Sand, Zane York and Angie Pipkorn.
Don’t miss this last one, as it’s a great opportunity to see and help warm up Austin’s new creative space.
Lastly, I must apologize for an error in last week’s column and set the record straight: Eric Anfinson’s work will be displayed in our Turbine gallery; however, Anfinson himself will not appear. Thanks for your patience and readership.
