Joe Ely “Carbon, Ink and Asphalt” Opening at Redbud Gallery


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.

Work, Identity and Gender Disparity in the Arts

Three Artists in Conversation: Pat Colville, Terrell James and Rabea Ballin

Three generations of artists, currently based in Houston, speak about gender dynamics, challenges and rewards of creating through their personal experiences: Pat Colville during the 1960's, Terrell James during the 1980's, and Rabéa Ballin in the current decade. The artists will discuss experiences and challenges that shaped their careers, and what motivates them to continue to create and believe in their artistic practice. This conversation will also examine the current state of gender equality in the art world, considering progress we have made, but what steps are needed to move us forward. Moderated by Sarah Beth Wilson, Director of Exhibitions and Curatorial Projects, Art League.

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.
