Wednesday, December 19, 2018 by Tai Moses
The People’s Gallery, an annual showcase of regional artistic talent, will launch its 2019 exhibition with an opening reception on Friday, Feb. 22, from 6 to 9 p.m at Austin City Hall. The more than 140 artworks in the exhibition include painting, sculpture, drawing and other media by 113 Austin-area artists. The reception will feature light refreshments and live music and a chance to meet and mingle with participating artists and hear remarks by Mayor Steve Adler. A project of the city’s Cultural Arts Division, the People’s Gallery exhibit is designed to spark public understanding and enjoyment of visual art. More than 350 artists submitted 1,250 entries for this year’s exhibit, with the final selections chosen by a panel of three professionals from the local arts community. The exhibition will be on display at City Hall through Jan. 1, 2020. Visitors are encouraged to walk, bike or use public transportation, if possible, as parking is limited in the City Hall garage.
