Meet Her Hands: Angel Oloshove

We're producing our second Meet Her Hands production with the Elisabet Ney museum. This summer salon series features three self-identifying women, Texas-based artists in discussion about their work, their inspiration and their hands (hence their process). 

On July 6, July 20 and August 10, we'll gather on the banks (yes, literal banks of Waller Creek) of the Elisabet Ney Museum, the former home of sculptor, Elisabet Ney. As the sun sets, attendees will enjoy an intimate exhibition of the artist's work, a Q&A with the artist herself and cider provided by Argus Cidery.

This event is free and open to the public with RSVP.

6:30 to 7:30 PM — View Angel Oloshove's small exhibition and tour the Elisabet Ney Museum. Enjoy complimentary libations from Argus Cidery.

7:30 to 8:15 PM — Listen to a Q&A with Oloshove about her process, how she started out and the vision behind her work.

8:15 to 9:00 PM — Stick around for a closing reception and mingling.

Madeline Taylor of Women & Their Work Gallery: I graduated from Sewanee: The University of the South in 2016 with a B.A. in Art History. During my time in Sewanee, I was on the Executive Board of the University's Women's Center, which is one of the few student-run women's centers in the nation. After moving to Austin, I quickly became acquainted with the Center for Women and Their Work and began volunteering once a week at the gallery on Lavaca Street. Women & Their Work is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to promote contemporary women artists living and working in the state of Texas, and I now serve as the organization's Program Director. On my free time, you can catch me walking around Laguna Gloria or with my head in a book at any of our local swimming holes.

About the Elisabet Ney Museum: In 1892, European portrait sculptress Elisabet Ney (1833-1907) purchased property in Austin, established a studio named Formosa and resumed her career as a noted sculptor of notables. At FormosaNey sculpted legendary Texans, among them Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston.  Ney also assembled at her American studio portraits of European notables, including King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Otto von Bismarck, Arthur Schopenhauer and Jacob Grimm rendered from life as a young artist in Europe. At the turn of the 19th century, Elisabet Ney’s studio became a gathering place for influential Texans drawn to “Miss Ney” and to the stimulating discussions of politics, art and philosophy that took place there.  Following Ney’s death in 1907, her friends preserved the studio and its contents as the Elisabet Ney Museum and established the Texas Fine Arts Association dedicated to her memory.
