Event Description

As humanity enters a new graphic skin, how will we remember our physical selves…or are we becoming computational mochas? Where do our avatars hang out when not in use? Café Avatar explores these questions with a playful collection of images and objects, both figurative and abstract. Large modular works, screen printed on industrially stamped synthetic felt, stretch and teeter across acrylic pegs. These works are complimented by a series of small room-scapes that mix screen printing, wood block, and photo copying techniques. Exhibited behind vacuum-formed plastic, traditional technique collides with idiosyncratic presentation. Makeshift clockworks silently activate the space and a collection of sculptural floor pieces give a sense of place to the otherwise fleeting abstractions.

About the Organizer/Venue

grayDUCK was founded in 2010 in South Austin, and relocated to East Austin in 2014. In our art-energized neighborhood, we strive to exhibit the work of exceptional artists while creating a welcoming place for everyone: viewers, artists and neighbors. Monthly shows highlight artist’s work from a broad range of experience, both locally and nationally. Our refurbished 100-year old house is a hybrid of new and old, clean lines and comfortable wood. The inviting space with a modern sensibility is a beautiful place for artwork, poetry readings, film, music and performance, a place where art is integral to everyday life.
