Stephanie Bonham.

I got an email today that artist Stephanie Bonham is having a reception for her work, this Saturday at 4:30, at Schatzelein.  Which is hard to spell?  But oh well.  (Rhyming!)

I really like the middle piece up above, titled "Somebody's Hurting."  Something about those statements -- and the way they get me out of my own little self-referencing world for just a moment -- is very refreshing.

Stephanie graduated from University of Texas with her Studio Art BFA in 2008, and in addition to her drawings, I'm also digging her photography.

This one is titled, "Hickoids Again?" which completely cracks me up.  I'm pretty sure it's taken of the ladies' bathroom at Hole in the Wall.

I love collage art, this is amazing! and yes, I'm pretty sure that's Hole in the Wall, though I don't see all the graffiti I've left over the years.

In addition to Stephanie's opening, The South First Art Walk is going on from 11am-7pm Saturday including art shows, open houses, demonstrations, live music, and family projects.

It will be a fun way to spend a leisurely Saturday!

Wow! So inspiring. I desperately love good collage art. ALSOOO... your comment on my blog was so delightful! And I feel like I can confide in you that I actually had a dream... you know, the kind of steamy dream.... about Brian Krakow. Ha!

@Jess -- Right? I love it too. Text inside art -- done well -- gets to me. In a very good way.

@ForgeYou -- Thanks for the info!

@BSimms8907 -- You totally should!!

@Mandi -- Oh girl, I know you do! Scrapbooking Queen. And, BRIAN KRAKOW? That is just too good!! Don't you wish we could go back in time and tell him so? He'd need it, after all those clueless brush-offs from Angela!
