The Phenomena of Place- Artist Panel

Artist Panel
Thu Aug 12, 2010


Join us for a conversation with artist Karen Mahaffy, Megan Crigger, Austin’s Public Art Administrator, Chris Oglesby, author of Fire in the Water, Earth in the Air: Legends of West Texas Music, and artist Chris Sauter.  Sauter’s artwork deals with many themes, on his website he states, “The home is an extension of our bodies and is the primary source for the production and propagation of culture.”

We will discuss the art exhibit, the persistence of moment and the phenomena of place.  We will talk about private space and public space, literary spaces and visual spaces.  The phenomena of place refers to how these artists feel about Texas; the organic vs. manufactured creation/production of place;  preservation, loss and/or appropriation of place; public/private place; place experienced through a sense of harmony, parallax or discord.
