We are excited to announce the opening of DORF, a pop-up alternative and experimental project space located in the South Austin in-home studio and grounds of Sara Vanderbeek and Eric Manche. With DORF, we provide a space to support and promote Texas-based artists as well as add vitality and momentum to the Austin art community. The inaugural exhibiti...on, Landscapes, Portraits and Still Lifes,
opens May 11.
We open DORF as a response to recent closures of art
spaces in Austin, attributed to skyrocketing real-estate prices. Over the past few years, rising rents have displaced hundreds of artists and art spaces in Austin.
DORF’s inaugural exhibition, Landscapes, Portraits and Still Lifes, is a group exhibition of Texas-based artists creating
contemporary inroads within these age-old art-historical
genres. The show features Elizabeth Chapin, Jeffrey Dell, Joey
Fauerso, Ana Fernandez, Raul Gonzalez, Jules Buck Jones, Drew Liverman, Raymond Uhlir, Vincent Valdez and Sara Vanderbeek.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts
Division of the City of Austin Economic Development
