THE CATHEDRAL MARCH OPEN HOUSE FEAT. ART BY WHITNEY AVRA - POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Join us at The Cathedral for our monthly Open House event! Sip on cocktails, have a bite, and chat with member artists. We will feature artwork by atxGALS mixed-media artist Whitney Avra.
Whitney is a contemporary mixed media artist working with vintage portraiture photography to explore ideas about female identity. She has exhibited at The Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin, TX, and her artwork has been featured in The Austin Chronicle, Austin CultureMap, and GlassTire. Pieces by Whitney belong in private collections internationally.
ABOUT THE WORK: Working with vibrant acrylic paint, women in vintage images begin to glow like goddesses. Layering a visual story beyond what the viewer can see, tapping into what is felt, the work starts with a color field— a veil, an ever existent barrier between souls. Then a golden halo is manifested, and embroidery stitch is added— a nod to femininity and the thread that binds women together. Lastly, tiny details are added to signify that no moment is too small to be insignificant.
Tickets are just $12 with sales benefitting Saint Louise House. Your drinks and delicious noms are on us. See you there!
