Garde Rail GARAGE

GRG is taking on a whole new meaning the next two weekends in Austin.

Garde Rail Gallery will inhabit a GARAGE in East Austin debuting work by some of the artists on our roster for the first time ever in Capital City. 

If you’re on the East Austin Studio Tour please stop by, we’re #17 on the map and you can find us at 1911 Garden St, Austin, 78702.

Days+Hours- November 12th and 13th and 19th and 20th, 11-6.

I was intrigued some years back when I heard about a band called ART BRUT, naturally. When I heard them I loved them. Turns out, lead-singing, high-kicking frontman Eddie Argos also paints and has a great style.

Marcus was in New York last week and stopped by an interesting store in Soho near his hotel.

KISAN-Concept Store

www.kisanstore.com- Their other location is in Reykjavik, Iceland!

KISAN carries clothing, toys, housewares, AND a few choice books.

I don’t see Blackstock’s Collections on the site but if you’re in Soho, stop in to have a browse around.

Garde Rail Gallery will make its Austin debut as Garde Rail Garage as stop #17 on the East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T). We’ll be open Nov. 12th & 13th and 19th & 20th from 11-6. If you’re in Austin then, please stop in! GRG>#17>E.A.S.T!

Blackstock’s European debut is on exhibit at CDL’AB from 9.30.11-2.19.12.
The response from the press and the public in Lausanne was so positive and plentiful and Blackstock enjoyed the time of his life on his week long Swiss adventure. Merci!

Terry Turrell to be represented by Garde Rail Gallery 
Garde Rail Gallery has long admired the work of Seattle artist Terry Turrell, and we are pleased to debut Turrell’s paintings and sculpture at Aqua Art in Miami, December 2-5th 2010.
A self-taught figurative painter and sculptor, Terry Turrell is a natural fit for Garde Rail Gallery. Turrell’s preference for found materials and the juxtaposition of rugged with playful create his unique narrative. His signature layering of paint and building of texture allows for an emotional interchange with the art and define Turrell’s raw sensibility as an artist.
We will be debuting Terry Turrell’s work at Aqua Art Miami, located at the Aqua Hotel, room 202, 1530 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL, December 2-5, 2010. For more information about Aqua Art Miami, visit www.aquaartmiami.com.

Introducing Pooneh Ghana!

Garde Rail Gallery is proud to be the first gallery to represent the photography of Austin, TX artist Pooneh Ghana. After seeing a photo of the band Art Brut (ironically enough) taken by Ghana, GRG perused more photos to discover a mountain of incredibly candid Polaroids of musicians at close range. These photographs are untouched and unfiltered, a real and fresh perspective in the digital age. Ghana’s work is not only behind the scenes; her precise and colorful live shots demonstrate great range for the emerging artist.

Pooneh’s love for music has been the driving force in her photography taking her around Europe and America for the love of it. Having the gumption and the height (she’s 5’11”) she’s never hesitated going where she needed to in order to get the shot; her talent was quickly recognized and rewarded when press passes started gaining her more and downright legitimate access. Ghana’s work has already been featured in online zines and blogs such as Swide, Stereogum and Rollingstone.com.

We will be debuting Pooneh Ghana’s work at Aqua Art Miami, located at the Aqua Hotel, room 202, 1530 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL, December 2-5, 2010. For more information about Aqua Art Miami, visit www.aquaartmiami.com.
