Seeing is Believing
November 10, 2012 - January 6, 2013
Emerging and international artists show new work at the Wells Mason Gallery in East Austin. In an age of image obsession, what happens when we begin to identify with our own carefully curated images? Do we encourage our own eyes to deceive? Addressing issues of art and identity, the Wells Mason Gallery will host an opening reception for “Seeing is Believing” at the gallery in East Austin. This exhibit will also be part of the upcoming East Austin Studio Tour, and it will remain on view through January 6, 2013.
The Wells Mason Gallery exhibits contemporary art by emerging and
internationally-known artists. “Seeing is Believing” will feature:
Jennifer Chenoweth — an Austin painter and sculptor whose quick painterly gestures form the basis for a new kind of visual language.
Larry Graeber — an innovative San Antonio painter and sculptor with an intense expression of analytical abstraction.
Jim Huntington — a veteran sculptor from Texas with abstract works in prominent museums and sculpture gardens around the world.
Wells Mason — an award-winning designer and free-thinking sculptor in the Austin area whose work is metaphor and message.
“With this exhibit, we’re exploring whether seeing is believing, and whether our strongest beliefs are born of habit,” says Mason.
