Helmut Barnett: Solo Show

March 10 - 31, 2018

Happy Hour and Artist Talk Thursday, March 8th at 6pm

Starting in a loft studio on what was in 1975 a quiet Congress Avenue and now working in an 100 year old house on the east side, Barnett has been a part of the evolving Austin art community for over 40 years. This upcoming show exemplifies the range of Barnett's talent, featuring geometric and organic forms on large canvases as well as large scale collages incorporating found material.

Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1946, Barnett moved to Abilene, Kansas in 1957. After finishing high school in Chicago and four years service in the Air Force, he moved to Austin, Texas and graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1974.
