Open Heart Open House Austin, Texas

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Well, today before the art reception I invited you to yesterday (“For the Love of Art” which had a GREAT turnout), I brought some of my sculpture, drawings, and paintings to a new cultural space in south Austin, Texas: the Curioseum, inside the soon-to-be-renamed “Austin Marketplace.”

Come to the Festival!
Date: Sunday, February 14, 2010
Time: 10:00am - 6:00pm
Location: 6800 Westgate Boulevard Austin TX 78745 (NW corner of Westgate and William Cannon)

From instigators Ruth Glendinning, Susan Buhrman, Beth Krueger, and Bruce Banks:

We are opening our heart and house to the community on Valentine's Day so you can see how we've changed!

Marketplace Austin is transforming into a multi-cultural community that will honor the interest, passions, and creativity of our neighbors. Our Austin culture is a blend of many diverse ideas. We look forward to planning great opportunities for all merchants to be a part of over the next few months. Working together with a common goal.

Please join us as we give the community a sneak preview of what we're creating. We'll have local food vendors, acoustic music, art, antiques, collectibles and all those things that we all love so much about Austin.

This is a family-friendly event and we look forward to welcoming you to your new favorite place to hang out in South Austin!

Don’t forget to bring healthy, non-perishable food items for the Capital Area Food Bank.

Happy San Valentino!

[The sculpture you see here is “The Little Mermaid” – bronze figure with a granite base.]
