Retrospective by Sam Richardson

Friday, April 17, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
(ISO and BYOB: Informal soft opening and buy your own beer)
a documenting the original Austin music scene

The works were done when the “Austin scene” was evolving in the early ‘70s. In those volatile times, the hippies and rednecks got together and discovered they enjoyed something in common – country music with a hard driving beat.

The Austin beat was labeled “progressive country” by many music journalists.

Among the artists depicted in Richardson’s works are Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Clifton Chenier, B.W. Stevenson, Joe Cocker and Navasota. There are also sketches of Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnics and of Luckenbach, Texas, a small town (population 2), that Nelson made famous in a song.

The collection will be on display through May 1.

Quote: “There has always been a strong connection between Austin and Taos. There are a lot of recovering Austintacious Outlaws in Taos, people who spent time at places like New Buffalo in Taos and at Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin and traveled back and forth over the years.”

Sam Richardson, 758-9539

Looking for a new drawing group space

The Thursday night drawing group is about to loose it's space. The Harwood is about to start to demolish the tired building. If anyone has any thoughts on this please let me know. I would prefer a central Taos Location. We have until the end of May.
