First of all, thanks to everyone, all 200-plus of you, who came to Artspace 111 last Thursday night for our inaugural Visionary Awards. And thanks, in general, to all of our readers and supporters –– on that Thursday night on the other side of town, at Central Market specifically, Weekly friends and employees and music lovers were out in force for a show by Kevin Aldridge and Blackland River Devils as part of our and Central Market’s free weekly outdoor concert series, Thursday Night Live. We couldn’t do anything without you guys, and we thank you all from the bottom of our collective journalism-and-arts-lovin’ heart.
Thanks to Seryn for plugging in at Artspace 111 and blowing everyone away, and congrats to our Visionary Awards honorees: photorealist Michelle Brandley, filmmaker Andrew Disney, and multimedia artist Micah Yarborough. Congrats also to Jordan Roberts, whose label design for the forthcoming Visionary Brew, brewed by Rahr & Sons Brewing Company to commemorate our Visionary Awards, was the popular favorite based on the votes of attendees. View the five finalist designs below and also some images of the event. See you next year.
