Winter is nice, but Autumn is better.


Adam walked into Nina's house a couple of weekends ago, as we were drinking wine and eating dinner.  "Hey, I'm Nina's neighbor," he said, grinning.  

Nina gestured to a new print she had picked up hours ago, and told me that this talented man had created it.  I was intrigued.

We chatted, and I found out that Adam belonged to Austin art collective Common House (906 E. 49th St).  There was a photographer there whom Nina thought I would like.

"Tolly.  Seriously.  You would go crazy over her stuff.  I think her name is Autumn."


(This is Autumn.)

The photographs above are all by local photographer Autumn Spadaro, and Nina was right: Hers is the kind of art that makes me want to build more walls in my house, so I can cover whole sections with her shadowy black-and-whites.  If you like them too, Autumn's work currently hangs in two spaces: Common House through the end of December, as well as End of An Ear Records.

Also.  Guess what, Reader.  Today I will visit a different sort of artist ... a hair color artist.  It's the close of a chapter, my redhead chapter!  I'm nervous.  But ready.  More on that tomorrow.
