Congratulations to Austin-based artist Jeff Williams, winner of this year’s $30,000 Texas Prize!! Statewide audiences will perhaps be most familiar with Jeff’s dust-encrusted sculptures from a few years ago (as seen at Okay Mountain and LA><ART), or more recently with his stressed concrete sculpture from his 2011 Artpace residency. For more on Jeff, see his interview from … might be good. (Congrats are also due to AMOA-Arthouse, in the midst of a major transition period after merging last year, for pulling off the TX Prize at all this year; and also to finalists Jamal Cyrus and Will Henry.)
