Out From The Shadows

Gigi Grinstad is a naturalist meets mystic. Living and making art in Austin for over a decade, Gigi is influenced by both nature and the esoteric.

Her tarot series is made of watercolor paper that has been painted, then cut up and collaged into the archetypal cards of the Major Arcana.

Her paintings are a also multi step process: she surfaces the paintings with encaustic medium (which is a beeswax and resin mixture), then scribes the line-work into the surface, and then finally paints them with oil paints.

This is the first time she has showcased work outside her home since the pandemic began!

Jan. 25-Feb. 28th

Flora + Fauna

Artwork by @katiecowden

Katie Cowden was raised in Bryan, Texas by an art teacher and a mad scientist, given mixed media supplies and books for every birthday, and brought up to take traditional materials and techniques from around the world to bend into something entirely new.

After ten years of teaching preschool, she took one laser cutting class and was ready to make her artistic bent into an artistic business. The end result was the eclectic, electric, and ultimately inimitable Killer Queen Designs.

Katie now wields light-based laser blades, barely-there flashes of silver needles, and teeny-tiny paint brushes with equal proficiency to make wearable and museum display worthy artwork in her South Austin studio. And as her repertoire of techniques and materials expands, so too does the Killer Queen empire.

@katiecowden would like to give a shout out to @austincreativereuse for the wooden plaques used in this installation as well as @makeatx where they created the cut out animals on their lasers.


This show will be on display Jan.4th- Feb.7th

A Study in Nature

By @bekkabakerart

Bekka Baker is a queer artist living in ATX for the last 10 years. Bekka came to Austin from Beijing, China, where they grew up heavily influenced by Chinese art. A major theme in their work is a love for nature, originating from a childhood spent exploring outside, catching insects and other small animals. You'll find elements of animal life in nature, symbols of death, and symbols of rebirth in much of their work. Bekka also creates digital artwork and illustrations for books.

"A Study in Nature"

As our world begins to warm more and more each year, the threat to our environment and the natural world is more prevalent than ever. Human destruction of the planet is a threat to the existence of thousands of creatures. Each of these creatures is dependent on us to make real change quickly.
As an artist I want to draw attention to this issue by creating portraits of animals. I hope that with each portrait I am able to capture the beauty of each creature that will instil a desire in us all to preserve them.

Hello! My name is Abigayle 'Abi', I am a 15-year-old Freshman at Crockett High School, I use she/they pronouns, and have lived in Austin my entire life. I have always loved drawing and painting, but didn't find my passion until the pandemic hit 3 years ago when I needed an outlet. I take inspiration from my interests like the shows I watch, the games I play, things I see on social media, and sometimes things from school. I enjoy using a variety of media when making art but all of my paintings were made using acrylic paint.

Ailee has always had a distinct art style that people have either loved or hated. Instead of letting critique hinder her, she's used it as fuel to push forward and continue creating art that makes her happy.

Justin Kipp Art

Instagram - @justinkippart

Vintage health and English text books, vinyl records, record covers, sheet music, comic books from my childhood, typewriters and cook books from the 70s are just a few places where I find the materials to make my art pieces. I enjoy taking images and items from their original place, then repurposing them to tell a new story. Inspiration varies - sometimes it's the position of a head, the look on a face or the shade of color that I have cut out with an xacto knife. These are then laid out in a massive pile before me and a blank canvas, swapping, changing, moving until the finish product comes to fruition.

I currently sell 8x10 prints at Prima Dora on Congress Ave and hope to be at other Austin Stores soon.

Canvas Chaos

Sarah was born and raised in Austin Texas in the 1980s . The golden years of the WWF . The athletic ability and showmanship captivated her immediately and early . That passion never dissipated . Cut to 2020 the world came to a halt. Her second passion of hairstyling was put on hold . Her love of wrestling morphed into a re visualizing of her childhood heroes on canvas . The love of painting wrestlers continues with no signs of slowing down .

"Redivivus" by @bekkabakerart

Everything in the world is recycled stardust. Every atom in our body was the result of a star’s death millions of light years away. The earth goes through many cycles of its own. Every year the seasons tell the old story of the cycle of rebirth.

Just as we live and experience the physical life cycles, our lives are also in a constant state of death and rebirth. Whether the end of a job or the end of a relationship, parts of ourselves end and then begin again as something new and more evolved.

I would like to welcome the viewer to think about what changes may be occurring in their own lives at this moment and what new life may be born from it.

A Celebration Of Cicadas

By @thehuxleycollection a Bele) Curious u

My love note to Austin cicadas, our summer-long neighbors screaming from the treetops. These silly-zombie critters annually bust out from the ground in a complete trance, looking for higher ground to molt and scream our season's soundtrack for a few months. Thank you for taking a moment to cruise my creations. I hope that they inspire you to bee) curious. About the process All of the insects that you see are real, ethically sourced cicadas found on walks with my dog. No cicadas were harmed in the process of creating the displays shared with you. The Metamorphosis of the Huxley Collection The Huxley Collection was created from a literal and figurative butterfly effect. I came across a yellow African Swallowtail butterfly on a walk after it had just passed. I took it home like a treasure and made my first display a few weeks later. I started making more and sharing them, and here I am, about eight years later. ½ Favorite Bouldin Creek Order: The Renedict or Breakfast Scramwich (both with tofu or eggs), and a vanilla oat milk latte.
