Spellerberg Projects Fall 2021

Gallery update! We have partnered with ICOSA, an Austin-based artist collective, for the programming of the Fall 2021 season. Artist/curator Michael Villarreal did a prodigious job coordinating the effort.

EN MASS,” a group exhibition by members of the ICOSA Collective, at our Masur Gallery. The show takes full advantage of the grand space, with works exploring scale and texture. Opened Sept 3 and runs into the winter.

Several people stand in a large room. Artwork is hung throughout. Sculptures that recall dandelion seeds are arranged in the foreground. A large tarp painted with upward-pointed arrows hangs in the background.
A man holding a baby looks at a large mural painted on an interior wall. The mural looks like a mouth with red lips. In this context, the windows above the mural look like eyes.
Two people look at paintings hung on a brick wall. The ceiling is low, and the floor is rough. Spotlights illuminate the wall in the otherwise dark room.

Together with the Earth,” paintings by Suzy González, at our Main St gallery. The artist’s materials includes corn husks, which references Mesoamerican beliefs that our very beings are created from maíz. Runs Sept 3- 25, 2021.

The Ocean Between Us (bein hai ben chung ta),” painting, sculpture, and installation by Loc Huynh, at our Main St gallery. This work depicts the bond between the artist’s maternal grandparents despite their geographic distance from each other.

Fade Like a Sigh,” photographs by Zora J Murff and Rana Young, at our Main St Gallery. The artists explore the void left by an absent parent and highlight the relationship between the photographic record and the fragmented nature of memory.
