FATHER’S DAY SHOW
Portraits of Dad
Thirty Austin Artists
Named Top Ten Visual Art Thing of 2006, Austin Chronicle
On Father’s Day, Bolm Studios is proud to host a special group show celebrating Dad. Thirty Austin artists will be invited to paint, draw or capture the essence of their father, for better or worse, and have the results hang in the Bolm Studios Gallery.
Among the artists lined up to participate include Sam Hurt, all of the members of SODALITAS,Ian Shults, Chris Chappell, Meg Stone, Bob Sabiston and David Ohlerking. The complete lineup will be finalized in the next few months. The show will spill out into the Bolm Studios courtyard, as a full fledged tribute to ‘Dear Old Dad’ will take place with a real live BBQ featuring the best dogs and burgers this side of the Colorado, along with cans of cheap ‘Dad beer’ and Kool-Aid for the little ones.
All fathers are encouraged to attend with their families, and see the imagery and thoughts brought to mind by the artists in the show.
Michael Schliefke, the curator of the show, recently co-curated the successful ‘Will There Ever be a Rainbow’ show held at Bolm Studios in November, 2005. He has also put together two ‘Shoulda Been a Plumber’ painting exhibitions as well as the ‘While We’re Young’ show held at Blue Genie Art in April, 2005.
