Women & Their Work

Women & Their Work seeks artists who create inventive, high-caliber contemporary art that breaks new ground or proposes innovative approaches to form and content. Accepted artists will be awarded a six-week solo exhibition with honorarium, support for a curatorial advisor, an exhibition catalog, a profile video, and a public program to compliment your work. Deadline for submissions is March 30, 2018. We will choose artists for 6-week solo exhibitions occurring March 2019 - December 2020. Applicants will be notified May 15, 2018. Women artists currently residing in Texas who have not had a solo exhibition at Women & Their Work within the past ten years are eligible. We strive for a diversity of experiences and perspectives. Women of color and all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and we welcome any artists who identify as women in a way that is significant to them. We do not accept applications from students. Apply here

Brown Bag Lunch conversation with photographer Bill Leissner

Austin History Center

Pack your lunch and head to the Austin History Center on Friday, March 30 for a trip down memory lane! Former Austin photographer Bill Leissner offers this noontime talk about 1980s Austin, shares some of his favorite photographs and talks about his experiences documenting this period of Austin’s story. Leissner’s work, numbering well over 100,000 images of the ‘80s in Austin, covers a range of topics from live music to street scenes/nightlife and from politics to animals (sometimes the same thing). The event is free and open to the public and drinks will be provided. Photos ©Bill Leissner, used with permission. Please do not copy or use without permission of the photographer.
