February 2018 - January 2019
The People’s Gallery is designed to showcase the work of regional artists and to encourage public dialogue, understanding, and enjoyment of visual art. Each year, the Cultural Arts Division issues a call for artworks to Austin-area artists, galleries, museums, and arts organizations. This year, approximately 1,300 entries were submitted by more than 320 local artists. The 2018 selection panelists were arts educator and artist Teruko Nimura; artist and Preparator (Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas at Austin) John Sager; and artist and Professor of Art, St. Edward’s University Tammie Rubin.
