Earth, Land, Property - Oct. 27 through Dec. 1

It's been an insanely long time since I've posted to my blog. I'm sure if you're still paying attention, you've assumed I was never coming back to this platform. Instagram has co-opted my daily posts and made frequent posts easy, but I wanted to put a plug in here for my biggest show yet. Earth, Land, Property opens this Saturday, October 27, and runs through December 1. The opening is at Davis Gallery in Austin, 837 W. 12th St., and is from 7 - 9 pm.

"This five-person exhibit featuring work by Nicholas Baxter, Julie Davis, David Leonard, Garrett Middaugh, and Jason Webb, examines the human perspective of land. This show intends to question our place among nature and how we've chosen to use our land. Each of the five artist's work will represent a specific "locale" on the spectrum between natural land and dense metropolis.

Julie Davis explores the space just outside of our town centers. Her paintings imply a delicate harmony between man and nature. In some of her work, fields are plowed or simple homes are seen in the distance. In other paintings, Davis illustrates nature steadily reclaiming old shuttered shacks."

The pieces below are a few of the 31 pieces I dropped off last week for the show. If you're in the Austin area and can stop by for the opening reception, please find me and introduce yourself!
