Considering retail stores had holiday decorations two seconds after Halloween, who isn’t sick of looking at Christmas visual clutter?
Austin’s indie galleries got fix for that this weekend.
Also Friday 7 to 10 p.m., Pump Project celebrates the opening of “I Saw the World: Betelhem Makonnen.” Using appropriated images from the British military invasion of Ethiopia, Makonnen subverts history and its authority.
At Mass Gallery, the cooperative is hosting a Big Blowout Holiday Sale, with 20% off everything in their shop including the one-of-a-kind artwork in the 12 x 12 bin. It all happens 5 to 8 p.m. Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. (On Saturday they’re spinning vinyl and offering eggnog.)
It’s also the final chance to see “Understory,” yet another super smart group show by this artist-run gallery.
On Saturday afternoon, from 1 to 4 p.m., the galleries in the Flatbed building host an open house.
Flatbed Gallery itself will offer 10% off any of its one-of-a-kind prints
