This May Be the Coolest Gallery in Austin!

DanielJohnstonBale Creek Allen is opening a new gallery this weekend in Austin (at 916 Springdale Road, Building 2), appropriately called Bale Creek Allen Gallery. Why do we have high hopes for the coolness factor of this new gallery?

Bale, a prolific artist who works in a multitude of mediums (view works here), is also the son of artist/songwriter Terry Allen and writer/actress/artist Jo Harvey Allen. During his childhood, Bale was hanging out with the likes of Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Chris Burden, John Baldessari, and William Wegman.

Also, the inaugural exhibition, which opens March 12, 7-10pm, will feature 50 works by Daniel Johnston, Texas’ favorite bipolar, schizophrenic, romantic, lo-tech musician and artist, and the subject of the 2005 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Daniel will be playing live with a band at the opening.

That’s a pretty good start, Bale!

    This is some great news and I’m looking forward to visiting Mr. Allen’s newest endeavor! I recall seeing some very nice shows at Bale Creek’s former Austin space, Gallery 68 (located in the Flatbed World Headquarters building.) I got to meet his father, Terry Allen, when he was in the gallery installing a show of some of his works on paper; very nice folks!
