Lisa Austin & Will Garner: New Works
The show opens Wed. Aug 4 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 29. The reception is Sunday, Aug. 15, 1-6 p.m. Gallery hours are Wed-Sun 1-6, First Friday 1-9 p.m.
Lisa Austin is a self-taught collage and assemblage artist, and a Signature Member of the National Collage Society with regional and national awards. Austin lives in Louisville and has a longstanding artistic inquiry into regional American culture, exploring contemporary issues through the manipulation of printed memorabilia.
In New Works, Austin debuts 3d collage technique for a light-hearted look at the loss, death and terror of the pandemic. She writes, “I began to make 3-D collages as a way to challenge myself technically and find that place in me that laughs at the world instead of crying. I made collages with several of my favorite items in them: old-fashioned pin-up girls, orchids, dinosaurs and pop culture (can you find King Kong?).”
Will Garner is a second-generation artist (son of gallery co-founder Joyce Garner) and has worked as a fencing coach, a sprite designer, and a sculpture studio assistant. He manages operations full-time for garner narrative, with his studio on site.
His mixed media paintings approach contemporary life through attention to our natural world. Garner writes, “Nature is all about finding things that work and continuing to do them with slight variations—in case there might be a way that still works, but differently. Some things have worked well in the same way for a very long time. Others have become very different. There is much to marvel at in both results. Who can say ahead of time what living will look like?”
