Austin Details Art Gallery & My First Piece Of Real Art

Austin Details Art Gallery & My First Piece Of Real Art

News about destinations on the north end of Congress Avenue just keeps coming.  First, an office tower at 907 Congress.  Second, the Hogg building could become a boutique hotel could.  Third, there is a new art gallery opening – Austin Details – on E 8th Street, just west of Congress Avenue.

The space is well suited to showcasing artists and hosting workshops.  Amber and I checked out the soft opening this past Saturday.  Supposedly, taking photos in a gallery is a no-no, (I didn’t know, I swear.  Bloggers beware!) but I got permish, and below are two of my favorites from the collection.

Expect the grand opening in a few weeks.
