After exhibiting Daniel Johnston, Bob Schneider, Terry Allen, and having discussions with Derek Boshier about the early British Pop scene in the 60’s, I came to the realization that many of our great musicians were also visual artists.  David Bowie, John Lennon, members of the “Who”, “Clash”, “Rolling Stones” and so on.  Imagine my surprise when I arrived at Joe Ely’s studio in Austin. His art studio is a large as his recording studio.

This exhibition, which was suggested by Melissa Nobel, includes drawings, collage, prints, and paintings over a long span of time.  Joe Ely’s new show “Carbon, Ink and Asphalt” at Redbud Gallery brings into focus 50 years of drawings from the road. Selected drawings span from 1969-2019.

Joe Ely is a Texas artist, poet, singer, songwriter and guitarist whose music touches on honky-tonk, Texas country, Tex-Mex and rock and roll.  He has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Tupelo, Los Super Seven, the Chieftains and James McMurtry in addition to early work with the Clash and more recent tours with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and Guy Clark.

As Joe writes...
“And that’s the way it is with Dreamers
They feel the Doom but stay one Storm ahead
If a man knows not his next destination
Then any road he takes will get him there on time”

Please join Joe and our friends for the opening on Saturday, May 4th, 6pm to 9pm at Redbud East Gallery.  The exhibit will be on view from May 4 through May 26, 2019.

Best,

Booker-Lowe Gallery Presents "Whose Business is it?" Opening Reception


In traditional Aboriginal culture, business or law - the rules by which people live - are strictly segregated by gender, with centuries of tradition dictating relationships within families, with members of the community, even with the land itself. "Whose Business Is It?" will feature paintings by Warlpiri men, who create detailed patterns representing complex connections with ancestral country. The exhibit will also showcase new paintings by Warlpiri women, whose bold patterns evoke their rugged desert homelands, and whose vibrant colors reflect the brilliant hues of land and sky.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on until August 4.
When:
May 4, 2019
Booker-Lowe will be open 2-5 pm, Saturday, May 4th, and 11 am - 4 pm, Wednesday, May 8th through Saturday, May 11th.   After May 11th, the gallery will be open 11 am - 4 pm, Wednesdays through Fridays, and by appointment.

Hidden Layers


After nine years of dedication to JoMar Visions and helping many artists ramp up their art careers, Joana Esteves is now finally having her solo show. “Hidden Layers” is a retrospective as it is an unveiling of new mediums and hidden emotions expressed through art. The exhibition will feature the artist’s intricate inks on paper and many acrylic paintings. You can expect an event of beauty, hidden layers and meanings yet still to uncover, and direct interaction with the artists’ work by helping peel off drawing gum layers to reveal a finished work. This will be a birthday and personal art celebration to add to your calendar.

EXHIBIT: Looking at a Flower, Chapter 3 by Joseph Cohen

"Art meets science" in this latest body of work by Joseph Cohen in the culminating chapter of his trilogy

This culminating chapter of a trilogy by Joseph Cohen features artworks created with paint that he developed in a medical research laboratory using nanomaterials -- from tracer dyes to separated carbon nanotubes. The works fluoresce outside of the visible spectrum -- ultraviolet and infrared, allowing for multidimensional viewing. When observed with a special light source, the art transforms into vibrant color; and when viewed under natural light, an evident, but faint glow emits from the works due to Cohen's use of purified phosphorous. Also on view are works from Cohen's Chapters 1 and 2.

ABOUT JOSEPH COHEN: Joseph Cohen was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Cohen received his MFA from the University of Texas in San Antonio, where he also taught undergraduate drawing and received his BFA from Texas State University in San Marcos. Cohen’s art practice has afforded him the opportunity to travel the globe and take part in international projects, residencies, and exhibitions. For the past decade after returning to Houston, his artwork has been acquired by The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, he was awarded best in show at Lawndale’s Big Show, and he has given presentations at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, The Menil Collection, and the Children’s Museum of Houston, among many others. Following the artist’s 2015 solo exhibition in New York at De Buck Gallery, Cohen began working with leading figures in the science and health industry. This led to an Artist-in-Residency program being created for the artist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York. Likewise, Cohen has taken part in Artist-in-Residency programs at Rice University, and the Houston Methodist Research Institute, collaborating with researchers and scientists. For over four years, Cohen has been working in Houston, New York, and Gaithersburg (MD) developing works from nanomaterials in an effort to develop a conversation between the two fields of art and science that goes beyond the superficial and fully integrates artist-researcher in ways never before seen. Cohen is also the Co-Founder of Davis Cohen Art, a full-service art advisory and appraisal firm. To learn more, visit www.josephcohenart.com.
