An amalgamation of some of Austin’s most brilliant artists is on display at Link & Pin as part of its Summer Strut exhibit. Showing through August 28, Austinites are invited all summer to view exceptional pieces from each artist.
“I chose some of my favorite artists that have shown in the gallery previously and have a good local reputation,” shares gallery owner Debra Watkins. “I asked each artist to choose an excellent example of their work to display. Then there will be at least four additional works for sale in an online store. It’s a model I’ve wanted to try, sort of like the Art Garage but gallery style instead of salon style … I’m also hoping to attract tourists now that Austin has them again, and featuring local Austin artists is important to me,” adds Watkins.
Additional opportunities are available for those who want to learn more about the creators and works, with artist talks held nearly every Sunday. At these special events one or two artists visit the gallery to discuss their work and inspirations. Art lovers who also wish to mingle with others can go to Link & Pin’s happy hours and savor light refreshments on Thursdays until 6:30 p.m.
The Summer Strut show is a remarkable opportunity to experience Austin through the lens of its creatives. Visit Link & Pin this season and learn more about the artists of our city.
