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.

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/.
Local artist Sally Fraser’s paintings are now on display in the island space at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate. Ms. Fraser works in a variety of mediums, including oil, acrylic, cold wax, and mixed media. Much of her art is abstract, but she also paints landscapes, flowers and plants, and human figures. “I paint with my head, my heart, and my hand,” Ms. Fraser says on her website. She enjoys working with texture and layering, and she frequently paints with a palette knife instead of a brush. If you’re looking to enjoy a wide range of subjects, mediums, and color schemes (as well as some delicious food), visit Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate and check out Sally Fraser’s unique works. They’ll be on display through July 1.

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!
The paintings of local artist Cameron Petri are currently on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate. Petri, who is also a cartoonist and graphic designer, paints landscapes, animals, and more. Each image communicates a striking feeling, whether it’s the mood of the animal subject or the artist’s state of mind while surrounded by a given environment. You won’t want to miss this beautiful, introspective showing, so come in now through May 21 to view Cameron Petri’s work alongside the paintings of fellow Austin artist John Kuehne at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate!
You can see more of Cameron Petri’s art at http://cameronpetri.com/.
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!

In honor of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and a longtime friendship, Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval will offer slices of Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte this week for $4.50 a slice.
Described by Austin American Statesman food writer Addie Broyles as “unique …The cakelike crust on the bottom and top envelop a sweet, smooth and buttery sweet potato filling,” the torte is handmade with love by Jennifer Cumberbatch. In the 1980’s, Jennifer’s husband Ashton played basketball at Enfield Park with Hyde Park Bar & Grill founder Bick Brown. The 3 cooked up the idea of Jennifer using Hyde Park’s commercial kitchen to make her tortes, which are, in her words “baked from the heart: it is memory, a tribute to those who have gone before, love emanating from the work of my hands, and an ode to family fellowship and the community table.”
After a few years of Jennifer baking the pies, and Hyde Park selling them by the slice while she sold the whole, life took another turn for the Cumberbatches and they put Jennifer’s pie business on the back burner in favor of leading a congregation.
But life has a way of coming full circle, especially when it comes to pies. So when Addie Broyles asked Bick about an article she was writing about Jennifer Cumberbatch’s return to sweet potato torte making, a phone call between Jennifer and Bick stirred their interest in having the tasty, historically-based dessert once again at Hyde Park Bar & Grill.
