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!

John Kuehne’s Artwork on Display at Westgate

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The work of Austin artist John Kuehne is now on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate. Mr. Kuehne paints landscapes, still lifes, and figures in a soft, muted style that borders on Impressionism. He states on his website, “I paint and draw from life. I am interested in the particular rather than the universal. My subjects are not meant to be symbolic of anything. They are just themselves.” This characteristic specificity shines through in Mr. Kuehne’s paintings; each one takes an ordinary moment or everyday object and captures its unique character and grace. His paintings will show through May 21 alongside the art of fellow Austinite Cameron Petri, so come in to Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate soon to view these unique works!

ART PARTY | Mike Etie | Monday, March 13, 5-7

Mike Etie graphic

It’s almost springtime, but Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate is celebrating bright colors and warm sunlight a little early with the work of local artist Mike Etie! A fabulous Art Party will be held at the Westgate location on Monday, March 13 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Come out to meet the artist, view his work, and enjoy a complimentary appetizer buffet and drinks at Happy Hour prices!

Mike Etie’s medium of choice is generally soft pastel, but he also uses other techniques, including painting and giclée, a form of computer-generated art. His images capture striking landscapes in bold colors, many of them from Texas Hill Country and other areas of this great state. As he states on his website, “I strive to capture the intensity of emotional response that describes the way one feels as he sees the sun move quickly at the beginning and end of each day…Of course, the sun rises every day, but never appears the same exact way. The appreciation of that daily difference is one of the blessings we are given without any obligation – we have only to notice and enjoy.” 
Mr. Etie’s works will be on display on the “island” at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate (4521 Westgate Blvd., Austin) from March 11 through May 5. You can see more of his art at http://mikeetieart.com/.
