Let’s begin the adventure of 3Ps (Pets (animals), People, and Places)! The gifts the Universe bestows upon us in the form of animals, the beautiful earth, and all the people. 3Ps began as an idea to acknowledge our gratefulness for companion animals; we expanded to all animals and all other entities that can create a magical difference in the world. We have 58 Austin Artists participating in 3Ps, many of the artists are exhibiting with Art for the People for the first time!!!! Many of the artists have multiple artworks & we’ll be rotating art throughout the exhibition…..come see our dynamic and spectacular 3Ps!!!

We all face a time when we shatter and are forced to rebuild from the broken pieces of our former self. "The Reinvention" illustrates becoming a better version of our self through the contrast of our lives. Reinvent yourself.
Artistic style was inspired by the Cubist movement.

"Embracing the Queen"
Acrylic on Canvas | 16" x 20" | $700
We stand at a crucial intersection in our existence where we are being asked to return to the Divine Feminine within us all. To start looking at ourselves, our Women and our Earth with the honor and respect they deserve and to treat them accordingly. This piece displays the interwoven essence of the Sacredness, Strength, and Beauty that both Mother Nature and Women hold within and without. They will ultimately restore Balance and Joy in our lives if we choose to embrace them with open hearts.

"Lunch on Lady Bird Lake"

Inspired by one of Austin's most precious natural elements, this piece displays how people and nature interact. Everybody's got to eat!
Jara Fatout Lang
Graphite on Paper | 30” x 22.5” (framed) | $650
A sleek cruise liner on the open ocean, a crisp cool morning at breakfast. This man, with his ukulele, adds a fun yet nostalgic ambiance with a variety of tunes that make your heart dance in anticipation for the day’s adventures. The people in our lives make the most difference, like the example here where our cousin set the mood for this particular vacation day. This drawing was inspired by a snapshot of my cousin playing the ukulele for our family while on a rare, but extremely needed, summer cruise vacation. The soft grays of graphite as the drawing medium adds to the calming and nostalgic feel.

Known for being sociable, charming, and goofy companion dogs, it is difficult to look at their wrinkly faces without cracking a smile. Their faces exude personality and that is what inspired me to use a pug as a subject for this piece.

"Under The Willow Tree"
Watercolor On Paper | 9.5" x 16" | $500
The image is a memory of a special time and place enclosed in a glass jar for safe keeping.

Animals bring us healing through their companionship, warming touch and listening spirits. They call us back to the gifts of the present. A pet can be a “best buddy” and his family.
Michelle Lawrence Schwartz
Watercolor and Ink | 24" x 21'' | $475
"Julia and The Racoons"
Acrylic on wood | 28.5" x 26" | $500
Acrylic paint, modeling paste & non-toxic epoxy resin | 2’x2’ | $800
This painting is called Claw Bay and was created through a build-up of multiple painting layers in between three layers of epoxy resin. Building up each wave layer to create depth and to draw your eye inwards to see details that may be missed from far away. The rocky cliff layers are sculpted on with modeling paste and then painted to create depth. The cliffs allow for a tactile response as they breach the top layer of resin, allowing for a unique experience.
"Watery Eyes And Blue Skies"
Photographic print | 11" x 14" print in 16" x 20" frame | $125
The wonderful reflection of the Lamar Boulevard bridge on Lady Bird Lake creates perfect oval shapes that remind me of eyes. This also happens to be one of the best places in Austin to admire our gorgeous skies due to the limited development in the Barton Springs/Zilker Park area on the far side of the bridge.
Scott Wilkes (Ironheart Welding)
Steel sculpture | 30" x 16" x 12" | $2,400
Made from a thousand or so small steel rods welded together to create a soft flowing female form. She is mounted on a steel plate so she can stand tall with pride. Her form is smooth to the touch but the edges are sharp and pointed like teeth. To me: she is a representation of the beautiful grace of the female form yet keeping in mind the animalistic quality of a woman, and that if handled wrong she can bite from every edge of her being. Treat every woman like the flower they should be. If you don't you will, could and should be bitten. Admire the beauty, respect the woman!

Pure innocence of children and their pets, one helping the other.
