Contemplative Photography is the art of seeing and appreciating the world, moment to moment, through a camera’s viewfinder. Contemplative Photography aims to move past our habitual ways of seeing in order to relax into the present, which allows the vivid and beautiful world to blossom in astounding ways.
An Artists’ Reception will occur on Monday, February 23 from 6pm – 8pm
Man With Umbrella
Audiences and participants of the Dougherty cross disciplines, backgrounds, and levels of exposure to various arts experiences. We are proud to support emerging through professional artists by creating opportunities to showcase work, see a show, and experience art-making first hand. Artists presenting their work in the Butridge Gallery have the benefit of high visibility, as several thousand visitors attend the award-winning art school and theater each month. This collision of creative activity contributes to the Dougherty's long reputation among the arts community as an accessible and nurturing venue and incubator. Our audiences know us for the diversity of work that has made this center Austin's oldest neighborhood arts center with the inspiring skyline.
