Generous Art with Jade Walker

Austin artist Jennifer Chenoweth started Generous Art with a two-pronged purpose: Give artists a direct means to sell their work at a fair price, and direct some of that profit to area non-profits.

With each sale of art either on the Generous Art website or at any number of Generous Art events, the purchaser can chose from a list of non-profits to receive 30% of the sales price.

This weekend, Generous Art is hosting one of its studio sales with Jade Walker.

Walker’s sculpture — mostly crafted from fabric — seem like benign, even humorous, abstractions of the human body. Yet there’s also an unsettledness and other-worldliness to them that’s compelling and intriguing.
