Artwork by Charlotte Clark & Jane Fier Now Showing at Westgate

By | Art, Community | No Comments

The work of Austin artists Charlotte Clark and Jane Fier is now showing at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate.

Ms. Clark has always been interested in art and began studying it seriously when she was in high school, continuing in college with a minor in the subject. Her bright, bold images seem to leap off the canvas in celebration, whether they depict abstract images of landscapes, animals, emotions, and concepts or are more realistic but still stylized pictures of everyday objects, such as pitchers and musical instruments.

Ms. Fier’s work comprises acrylic paintings on canvas and monotypes painted on plexiglass and then hand-printed on dampened printing paper. She creates abstractions of landscapes and other subject matter as well as more realistic-looking landscapes. The artist states on her website, “Currently my work is about conveying a mood from my impressions of nature.  I do this by using elements of color, light and shadow and at times by abstracting the shapes I see in a particular place that has inspired me…As I begin each painting I try to paint what I’m feeling toward my subject matter knowing that intuitively my foundation (experiences, techniques, materials) will all coalesce into my final work.”

Charlotte Clark and Jane Fier’s artwork will be displayed at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate through September 24. You can see their online galleries at https://www.facebook.com/pg/ClarkImages/posts/?ref=page_internal and http://www.janefier.com/home.

New Featured Artist at Duval: Linda Kimble

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The paintings of Austin artist Linda Kimble are currently on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Duval. Much of Ms. Kimble’s work consists of abstract art in muted colors, some featuring bold, geometric shapes and others blending together mistier, fuzzier images. She has also painted a series of colorful, peaceful longhorns and cows and has lately been working on a series called Austin Asphalt, which incorporates patterns she finds in the pavement of the streets near her home. As her personal website notes, Ms. Kimble was born on her family’s farm in Iowa, where she “gained an early appreciation for landscapes, animals and nature. When most saw cattle and grain fields, she saw colors and textures.” Ms. Kimble mostly works with acrylic on canvas. Her art will be on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Duval through July 16.

Trish Sierer’s Artwork Now on Display at Westgate

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Local artist Trish Sierer’s works can now be viewed in the main display space at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate. After working extensively in jewelry design, Ms. Sierer began drawing in pen and ink, and she also does Japanese wood block art. These pieces, which are mostly black and white, seem to highlight the space in and around the various shapes and lines that make up each image, and the contrast strikingly with the artist’s digital prints, which seem to leap off the surface in bright colors. Ms. Sierer prides herself on using high quality materials, and she states online, “My work tends to be abstract with inspiration coming from patterns I see in nature. The symmetry of palm leaves to the complexity of plants under a microscope [sic].”

Trish Sierer’s pen-and-ink drawings and digital prints will hang at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate through June 25. To see more of her artwork, visit https://www.trishsierer.com/.

Art Party | Ann Flemings & Mary Jo Kennard | Monday, May 22, 5-7 PM

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The work of local artists Ann Flemings and Mary Jo Kennard is now up on the walls at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Duval!

Ms. Flemings, who has been painting since age seven, is now in her second year of working full-time as an artist. Her website describes her as “an acrylic painter who loves creating abstract art inspired by the natural world.” She is known for textured landscape and quilted-mosaic imagery, as well as linear geometric pieces that represent “an attempt to bring order to [her] life.” Recently, she has begun applying digital techniques to her geometric paintings.

Ms. Kennard is inspired to paint by looking at the work of artists from previous generations as well as her contemporaries, and she draws upon elements from those works to create her own unique images. “The paint quality, color, and composition are what it’s all about in my work,” she states on her website. “The subject matter can be anything, using whatever I have on hand or see out my window.” Ms. Kennard’s paintings depict interiors, landscapes, flowers, still lifes, and human figures; recently, she has been working on a series of large paintings of doors.

The artwork of Ann Flemings and Mary Jo Kennard will be on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Duval through June 4. An Art Party is scheduled for May 22 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. Join us for the Art Party, or come in another time to see the breadth and depth of these talented Austin artists!
