Women & Their Work (W&TW), the central Austin non-profit art space founded in 1978, hosts its Red Dot Art Spree party on Thursday, September 12, from 7-10 pm. Chaired by Rose Anderson Lewis, Sarah Luna, and Silke Morin, the party will feature more than 150 works which can be purchased tax-free, with no artwork priced more than $750. The space hopes this kind of initiative will help grow the collector base in Texas (presumably especially Austin), as attendees participate in the evening’s silent auction. Proceeds from Red Dot will support the exhibitions, performances, and free education programs offered by W&TW each year.
The extensive list of artists participating in this year’s Red Dot includes:
