Drink, Draw, Discuss in DC

UPDATE (February 29, 2012):  At 4pm on Saturday, March 3, Austin Thomas will wrap up her exhibition and salon series with a talk about her work. See you there!

This Friday, February 10th, at 5 pm,  Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Austin Thomas and I will talk about making art, blogging, and how the two activities intersect. If you are in the DC area, or feel like taking a field trip, please join us. The discussion is part of a series of salon-style events that Austin has organized in conjunction with her exhibition at Heiner
Contemporary in Washington, DC.

in which she uses vacation blogs to explore online representations of “exotic”
landscapes, specifically vacation blogs written about Ecuador’s La Ruta
del Sol. Her project includes a series of cyanotypes and performative
