We ♥ John Hung Ha!

This is like a full on 1980's school girl crush for us. We had to have matching art. (Can you guess which one's Wendy's and which one's Melissa's?)

John won best mixed media at Art City and sold all his art during the festival. And what an inspiration. He CUTS out all that stuff y'all. It's crazy intricate. The flowers are smiling at you. For real. Which got us thinking.......

Art is in the Air

Yep, it is. Crazy, crazy week for the Art Alliance and all things downtown in Austin. We had so much fun and walked away with some matching art work.

It started Tuesday night with an opening to Art Week.

But I drank and talked too much, it got dark and I didn't take pics of anything else. That's my usual MO.
Then Saturday was the actual ART CITY which turned out to be so cool. We had so much hype. In the Statesman, Chronicle, News 8, KVUE, Fox. They all were into it. My favorite thing was this.
A giant Plexiglas cube filled with kid art. My favorite medium with my favorite type of artist.

And Magda's cool installs.

I didn't really take a lot of pictures because I was busy walking up and down Cesar Chavez 1000 times from stage to stage and was being yelled at by various people that the music was too loud. But at least this was my view.

Art City!

It's been two weeks since we Well lots 'o change here at ModPlexi, but we still hustlin' and this week I promise to deliver the goods!

Right now I've been working on this great event here called Art City! It's a 60 year old event that started as a little festival and has grown to include close to 200 artist.

Tomorrow night kicks it off with the opening of Art Week where they have amazing installations in the 2nd Street Warehouse District. (Pics coming later this week.) They also have art talks, bike art tours, think tanks and other cool stuff.

My good friend Magda Sayeg will be putting up some cool installation pieces like this.

She's not the only artist to install on site, so just imagine. (Random side note, we're working on framing a knitted piece right now!)

There's a kids area, where the all talented Matt Sonzala will be DJing kids music and the city hall stage will feature bands like these guys.

Hope to see you there!

Spring makes my heart go pitter patter

I love you Spring ... wondrous and fabulous. If only you weren't the gateway to mosquitoes, gnats in my wine, frizzy hair, and other such summertime hazards. But for now ... I celebrate and adore you!
