AMOA: One Peace ... In Pictures!

There is nothing we love more than traveling the world through photography. Intense, poignant, and overall eye opening. Sometimes it helps to get out of our own skin to remind us to be grateful for the things we do have.

Austin Museum of Art has a collection of photos on view this week, courtesy of the Nobelity Project. Stop by to check out the work of Austin writer, actor and filmmaker Turk Pipkin, who traveled to several locations during the making of his critically acclaimed film
Nobelity. The Exhibit is free to the public in the Community Room through April 15th.

If you can't make it this week, the museum is a great place to spend a few hours to get out of the hot summer sun. It is just $5 ... great price to take you to another world for a few minutes.

I went to a contemporary art fair in Shanghai recently, which was a real eye-opener. Chinese contemporary art has come leaps and bounds from the watery Zen landscapes to huge canvases of strange-looking beings. The prices being asked and paid were huge too.
Oriental, if not Chinese, my print of Jean-Léon Gérôme's painting, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWS6R, bought some time ago from wahooart.com, is as lovely as ever.
