About this project

The heart behind this intended collection of work to be displayed this fall/winter 2017 in San Antonio will be centered around Soul Food. Depicted in my personal style of abstract work, I hope to convey not only the different foods that are considered "soul food", but the feelings and emotions that come with the idea as well. The essence of what it means to feed your soul - with truth, self-care, light, goodness, nostalgia and new beginnings.

I would love for your support in bringing this idea to life with me! Your pledges will help offset art supplies such as canvases, hardware for hanging, framing, paint, and tools to cover over 190 feet of wall space at the Carver Community Cultural Center!

This will be my first solo exhibition in Texas and I am excited! Thanks to the Carver, I have the opportunity to expand my work past Austin's city limits, and on into San Antonio! In addition to creating for the process, I absolutely love opportunities that allow artists and non artists alike to come together in community, surrounded by art. Art for conversation, art that evokes feelings and emotions, art that brings people together.

Arielle Austin Studio began in my hometown of Northridge, California. I now dream and create in Austin, Texas. It was a complete leap of faith moving out to the Live Music Capital of the World in 2015, but I'm very grateful I took the chance. I've received nothing but love and encouragement from Texas' creative community in addition to those outside of it.

Risks and challenges

I have been painting professionally through Arielle Austin Studio since 2014 and I'm both ready and excited for this next opportunity in my practice. I want my artwork and business to evolve to a new level, but I need the help of my community to get there. I've dreamed about an opportunity like this - a space to showcase my heart's work, a challenge to refine my gift, and an event to bring others together, surrounded by art, in community.
I would hate to not be able to fully bring this vision to life because of lack of funds. With your help WE will be able to grow a space just for that. I am confident that this is only the beginning for Arielle Austin Studio.

Contingency time has been planned into the delivery of rewards allowing for the possibilities in production set back. Should any unpredicted / extended delays occur I will keep all of my backers informed about the delivery timescales.

Should the campaign become oversubscribed, rewards will be prioritized in pledge order and I will keep everyone informed about my progress and their anticipated deliveries.
