Site-specific interventions primarily constructed of light and plastics, climb, grow and pulse in Adela Andea's sculptures. A purveyor of all things light emitting diode and cold cathode florescence, she creates immersive shimmering environments. Using commercial technologies in unexpected biomorphic ways, Andea invokes a variety of references: bioluminescent sea life, cellular structures, discos, rock concerts with light shows, sci-fi space films, and alien life forms. These light sculptures writhe and stretch creating a rhythmic, seductive, and intriguing environment.

On Saturday, April 26th, please join us at the beautiful, central Austin home of Peggy O’Shaughnessy for a night of high style and conversation. In past years, our spring events have been noted as tour de force parties (deemed the Best Art Fundraiser of the Year by Stephen Moser of The Austin Chronicle and Gatsbyesque by Michael Barnes in the Austin American-Statesman). Our annual spring party will also be a night to savor. With funds raised, we will bring more of the art of our time to Austin and introduce the joy and wonder of art to more than 950 students in underserved schools.
Leslie Wilkes' geometric paintings are initially based on graphic design patterns from the 1960's. Her use of symmetrical arrangements and unexpected color combinations create simulations of kaleidoscopic Rorschach blots. Wilkes' paintings challenge viewers' visual consciousness and perceptions with complex and arresting imagery.
