I’ve had the pleasure to work with Erin Kuykendall for over a year now; she’s not only fun to be around, but also, a creative, outspoken, proactive soul filled with contagious energy to fight the good causes with you.
Erin is the editor in chief for The Audacity, a local publication composed of artists, activists, and storytellers, that has inspired me and many others to see things differently and taking a stand.
The Audacity team will be on site promoting their zine and also bringing artist Vero Caceres to our lovely Studio #95.
Come say hi, meet Erin and her team of trendsetters, have a drink with them and toast for a more beautiful world in the making.
More info about the studio here.
Miranda is the latest addition to our killer artist roster; She resides in NYC and has been working on different Art related projects for years.
She’s sending us the coolest more colourful pieces to make your days hipper & happier 😉 Pierce does fun sculptures sometimes with household items that you never thought were art material; she transforms them into the coolest compositions, creating weird eclectic worlds that you wish you could immerse in.
If you’d like to know more about Miranda and her work, follow her on Instagram or check her website!
Thank you, Miranda, for sharing your amazing work with us and the city of Austin!
You can buy her work in our happenings November 18th and 19th 2017
See you soon!
If your thing is Photography, Patricia Carrington is the artist for you. Her eye is magical, she can see the beauty in everything and uses her camera to capture it and sharing it with us.
She’s been part of The Projecto since day 1 and this year won’t be an exception, we’ll have her Horizon series for sale, which is benefiting Mexican organizations to rebuild cities affected by recent Earthquakes such as Oaxaca and Chiapas.
Support this important cause while adding a cool, limited edition piece by this fantastic Photographer.
