November 12-27 , 2013
Opening reception: November 16, 6-8pm
Tina Weitz’s images are a photographic journey of her passion for Polaroid processes and subjects fading and nostalgic. She shares her vision of awakening memories of something familiar with old cameras, new instant film alternatives and by embracing digital technology.
Pola-Vision encompasses works from Polaroid Time-Zero film while it was still being manufactured, her decaying stock of expired film and the possibilities offered by photography phone apps such as ShakeItPhoto.
Hours E.A.S.T. Weekends: 11am-6pm November 16, 17 and 22, 23
Regular Hours: Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday 10am-3pm
Closed Nov. 28nd for the Thanksgiving holiday
November 10-18 East Austin Studio Tour will be here, I have applied and will await my confirmation that my studio will be participating. Time to get prints and materials rounded up. This is one of my image choices for advertising. Taken with an Olloclip lens for my iPhone 4. I love the feeling I can convey with multiple apps being combined. I’ll be having a preview party on November 9, from 6-9pm if you want to visit before the weekend crowds.
I’m excited to have been selected for the “num6ers” exhibit, juried by Carol Watson and Amanda Smith at the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City. Click here to see the accepted images.
“Aqua Barbie” is in the current exhibit at A Smith Gallery titled “Alterations”, juried by Jill and Dan Burkholder. A reception will be held on November 26, exhibit dates are November 11 – December 18, 2011. Click here to see the accepted images.

I would love for you to come by and visit my new studio #1 during the East Austin Studio Tour which is stop number 56. There was a mention in The New York Times about this fabulous event http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/18/us/gtt.html?_r=2&ref=texas.
I have “Stratosphere”, my newest artwork featuring iphoneography, (and an extra print of “Aqua Barbie” 😉 ) on view with 13 other artists at the Studio2Gallery exhibit. Also, I can’t wait for you to see my Polaroid designs on the latest bags and clutches which are available for sale. Last chance to visit the art tour is November 19 and 20 from 11am-6pm at 2830 East Martin Luther King Blvd, Austin, Texas 78702. Hope to see you there!
I have some things cooking up for East Austin Studio Tour 2011 and can’t wait to share the new Tina Weitz Photography/Studio2Gallery space! I am still working on the wall prep (they were a bit pitted over the years by many a great resident artist) and electrical stuff. Also have some upcoming exhibits I have been selected for to announce (another post) and good things lining up for 2011/2012. For now here is the E.A.S.T. scoop and a funny little image I couldn’t resist displaying for “Eastside”.
