ARTBASH Artist Happy Hour
November 11, 2017 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PMFree
During the first weekend of the East Austin Studio Tour, Art Alliance Austin will be hosting two free happy hours and artist talks at Native Hostel, where visitors are invited to grab a cocktail, experience an original exhibition created for Art Alliance Austin’s third annual ARTBASH event and chat with some of the Austin artists whose work made ARTBASH come to life. The exhibition will be on display all weekend, with the happy hours taking place Saturday and Sunday from 4-6 p.m.
ARTBASH participating artists Teruko Nimura and Suzanne Wyss will speak about their work during the happy hours on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, with refreshments provided by Stella San Jac and Chef Martin Wilda.
Teruko Nimura is a visual artist based in Austin with a diverse practice including drawing, painting, clay, mixed media sculpture, installation, social practice and performance. Nimura takes inspiration from personal experiences and Asian, Asian-American and Indigenous cultures to create participatory installations, sculptural objects, and two-dimensional works that aim to facilitate reflection and social interaction.

Suzanne Wyss is an Austin based artist who creates large-scale sculptures and installations that aim to invoke curiosity of place through personal encounters with a relatively unknown world. Using large quantities of material, ideally reusable or recycled, Wyss creates fantasy growths, environments and encounters that overwhelm and create space which highlight the often-overlooked intricate interactions of nature.
