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/.

Art of Darryl Freeman on Display at Westgate

By | Art, South location | No Comments

We are thrilled to be displaying the work of local artist Darryl Freeman at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate! Mr. Freeman’s paintings range from sunny, colorful landscapes full of brilliant details to introspective, somewhat-stylized images of women going about their daily lives, each captured in a beautiful, fleeting moment. “I try to create some positive energy about my paintings,” the artist says on his website, and we can attest that he succeeds! Come brighten your day with delicious food and splendid paintings at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate, now through April 25.
