We are thrilled to be participating in Big Medium's Austin Studio Tour this year as stop #542! Our team has curated an incredible solo exhibition, "Optical" by Erin Carle, to be displayed at Moontower Cider Co through December 10th.
A surrealist painter, Erin Carle was inspired by the optical art movement throughout this body of work."Optical" addresses themes of inadequacy, consent, conformity, sexism, body standards, and other challenges women face in a world dominated by media and constant social interaction. This solo exhibition also draws inspiration from Erin's personal experiences as a ballerina and model, two of the most physique-centric industries for women.
Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, November 11 from 6-9PM at Moontower Cider Company, with complementary hard cider beverages for the first 50 attendees courtesy of our sponsor Big Country Organic Brewing Co.

The Gallery ATX's Mujer Manifesto Zine presents an extraordinary event to showcase the powerful creativity and joyful experiences of marginalized groups. Tired of the narratives centered around trauma and tragedy, we are flipping the script and focusing on the beauty, love, and whimsical fun that fill the lives of women, nonbinary individuals, LGBTQIA+ community members, and BIPOC.
The "GOOD TIMES" Group Exhibition and Zine is a collaborative project that aims to visualize intersectional community and positive media representations, supporting the creative expression of marginalized populations. Our Texas-based feminist zine, Mujer Manifesto, has handpicked a selection of talented artists who have beautifully captured these moments of joy, love, and pride in their identities.
The Gallery ATX presents “Split”, a solo exhibition featuring the works of multidisciplinary artist Rewon Shimray (@artbyrewon)
Rewon's surrealist art explores themes of identity, discrimination, grief, and deconstruction. Her work challenges viewers to reconsider seemingly regular truths and elements in their day-to-day lives.
The exhibition features four series exploring a different facet of the artist's clashing identities as a biethnic Asian-American.
The Gallery ATX Presents: "Birthing Justice" an exhibition featuring 20 artists from all over the world. These selected works respond to the political and social climate as well as explore themes of feminism, gender identity, and empowerment. "Birthing Justice'" encourages viewers to envision what justice means to you through the lens of the broad spectrum of bodily agency and the desire for a world free from gender constraints. This exhibition aims to mobilize and share the varied truths of those affected by the overturn of Roe v. Wade (1973)
“The truth is, no one of us can be free until everybody is free.” –Maya Angelou
After nearly 50 years of access to safe abortion for all, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) on June 24, 2022. While this decisions affects us all, it has especially compromised the safety of historically marginalized communities, such as Black, Indigenous, disabled, migrant, trans, low-income, and rural folks.
'Birthing Justice' as an exhibition seeks to provide a platform to empower marginalized voices to put forth artwork that explores intersectional feminist thought, action and lived experience in the fight for reproductive justice for all. The Gallery ATX aims to create a safe space and collaborative platform that visualizes activism, solidarity, and the fight for reproductive justice. We aspire to facilitate change and cultivate a space for open dialogue regarding reproductive justice, including the deconstructing of the gender binary as an organizing principle.
Without the basic freedom of reproductive rights, we are not all equal under law. For women and other folks capable of pregnancy, reproductive freedom intersects with our emotional, psychological, physical, and financial wellbeing. Everyone deserves the right to abortions, medical care, and self-determination. We pledge our solidarity to all people seeking to express their body autonomy and rights to reproductive justice.
