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.

East Austin Studio Tour Nov. 10-11, 17-18

I have begun my serious countdown for the East Austin Studio Tour. Clean up the excess art supplies out of the studio space, finish getting prints made, get prints up on the walls…

Not only is my studio on the tour, but in the same art facility I will be participating in the “Emergence: Transformation” group exhibit with Studio2Gallery at the O2 Gallery Space.  Here is one of my images to be on display, “Meditations.”  I feel 5 years of practicing Kundalini Yoga has influenced my life in a great way, creating a “Transformation” within myself.

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!

E.A.S.T. tours info – stop on by!

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”.

east austin studio tour

Haven’t had time to post, as I was preparing for the East Austin Studio Tour.

What a groovin’ time! I must thank Bolm Studios (who just changed their name to Big Medium) for the time and effort they put forth for our local art community. This year the addition of the Yellow Bikes was awesome, way to go for a “green” turnout.  Also enjoyed the music happening at the building – and where was my camera when “Rubber Robot” was playing???  I missed a great opportunity as the band members all wore rubber horse head masks and the pony tails were flying to the beat of the band.
