Art at Redbud Cafe
We are fortunate to be able to be in the heart of a vibrant local art community. Redbud Cafe features local artists regularly on the beautiful expanse of plaster wall on the west side of the cafe. Shows generally run for 2- 3 months. During that time, work by our featured artist (s) is available for purchase through, Brieger Pottery, adjoining the the cafe.
Opening October 2nd
Green Dog Studio • Jim Bob Salazar & Candice Granger
We are so happy to have the innovative clay art of Jim Bob Salazar and Candice Granger on the wall at Redbud Cafe this fall. Their show will open on October 2nd and be on display and available for purchase through the end of December. Be sure to come by to see their work on the wall and more of their other functional work available at Brieger Pottery, next door.
Jim Bob and Candice quit their “real” jobs to pursue art full time. They sold their house, renovated an old school bus for a home and built a studio out in the country in Gonzales County. Six years, two kids, 4 dogs, 1 cat, 18 chickens, 26 goats and 2 fish later, they are still living their dream of doing what they love.
In their work, they are exploring ways to alter the clay surface using various found objects: gears, bobbins, knobs, you name it, they have probably tried pressing it into clay. Although their work is similar in textures, they break free from each other in their color pallets. Jim Bob uses a monochromatic color scheme to make his precisely placed texture compliment the color of the clay. As opposed to Candice, who uses acrylics to wash the clay surface of shades of every color she can get her hands on.
