The presentations will feature a wide array of painting, sculpture, drawing, and other media by over 120 artists from across the Austin area. The public is invited to the opening reception to view artworks throughout City Hall, meet the participating artists, and to enjoy light refreshments and live music by Hora Once!.

Limited parking is available in the City Hall garage and will be validated; however, visitors are encouraged to walk, bike, or use public transportation.

About the District 6 Gallery

Last year, our office invited local artists to show their work in our City Hall office. Our office gallery is one of the finest and coziest lounges on the 2nd Floor (see picture). Our display features the work of Rebecca Bennett, Jennifer Idol, Lisa Koerner, Kelley Ramirez, Kathryn Yu, Gino Barasa, Gladys Poorte, and Thomas Evans. We are so proud of this gallery and the generous sharing of these artists, we are leaving the show up for as long as these artists will allow through our first term. If you’ve seen our office, come by again to say hi (and maybe meet these fabulous talents)! If you’ve not see our office, you are in for a treat!

More About People’s Gallery

The People’s Gallery is designed to showcase the work of regional artists and to encourage public dialogue, understanding, and enjoyment of visual art. Each year, the Cultural Arts Division issues a call for artworks to Austin-area artists, galleries, museums, and arts organizations. This year, approximately 1,250 entries were submitted by more than 350 local artists. A diverse panel of three local visual arts professionals served as the jury this year: Vy Ngo, Ric Nelson, and Stephanie Sandoval.

This year, the People’s Gallery exhibition will include a special selection of photographs— Bold Beauty Project Texas. Featuring images of Texas women with disabilities by a range of photographers from across the state, the presentation aims to break down the stigma associated with disabilities and encourages all to recognize the beauty of the courageous women featured.

Each year, the public is invited to vote for their favorite artwork in the exhibition, and a “People’s Choice” is selected from among the top-voted artworks to be purchased and added to the City’s permanent collection. Ballots for the 2019 People’s Choice will be available during the opening reception on February 22, and during normal exhibition hours through October 25, 2019. The People’s Choice award for the 2018 recipient will be presented at the opening reception at 6:30pm.

Visitors to City Hall can view the People’s Gallery during regular building hours, from 8am to 5pm, Monday – Friday. Admission is always free. The 2019 exhibition will remain on display through January 1, 2020.
