The Love of Art at Austin

Apr 1, 2008
Every vacation traveler has heard the popular phrase, "Everything is bigger in Texas," at some point or another. The same holds true in the realm of the artist. For some unknown reason, the Texas artisans seem to see things on a broader scale, to look into many worlds and cultures for their inspiration and delicately prepared works. Texas artists, contrary to popular belief, do not explicitly work only on old Western style art, though some do. There are a number of different style artists from the many wonderful cities of Texas that focus their works on a wide variety of styles and genres. Take the Austin Galleries in Austin Texas for example. This is the perfect reference point for the unique variety and originality found in the Western United States artisans works.

The Austin Galleries itself is a well-established old institution, constructed in 1964, and the largest of its' kind in Austin, as well as the surrounding cities. In the seemingly never ending halls of this fine establishment you will find some of the most talented works of art that this state has ever produced, as well as the works of some of the major international artists of renown. There are the works of fine artisans such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Alex Calder, and Richard Anuszkiewicz, to name a select few.

The artists whose work is on display at this wonderful vacation attraction are varied in particular preferences of mediums. You can find art in the form of sculpture, sketches, reproductions, and paintings. The focus of the art here is as varied as the mediums, as the Austin Galleries does not believe that art can be 'corralled' into one basic subject. There is modern art, expressionistic art, abstract works, and even the rarely attempted Cubism form of artistic expression.

The Austin Galleries also recognizes that art does not always come in the form that one would expect. It doesn't' have to be a painting to be a masterpiece. Art can also be viewed in historical artifacts. With that in mind, there is also a wide selection of antiques and classical items with an artistic accent to them. There are items here that actually date back to the seventeenth century. Most of these items are decorative in nature, such as old hardwood chairs, benches, tables, porcelain vases, chandeliers, lamps, desks, and wall sconces. There are many more to view as you make your way through the galleries. The effect of this intrinsic mix of art and antiquities is that you have stepped back into time to a place of wealth and style. This is truly an artistic wonderland.

Those who truly understand the act of creating art, regardless of the medium or genre, know that the art itself is a gateway, a portal if you will, into the creative heart and soul of the creator of that work. No artistic work is done without a reason. Armed with this powerful inspirational knowledge, won't you consider a trip to the lovely state of Texas this year to feel the hope and emotion in the works of the artists of the Austin Galleries?
