Welcome to Ticka Arts! We are excited about the upcoming year, and the artists that we’ll be working with. As of November 1, 2013 Ticka Arts was made a non-profit corporation with the State of Texas. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen for us.
We also would like to inform you that “Ticka Arts: A Photographic Collaboration” was a wonderful success. August 16-30, 2013 Ticka Arts exhibited works by our online gallery artists – plus a couple of pieces from Austin’s own Malia Moss – at the O2 Gallery here in Austin, Texas. We are extremely grateful that the O2 Gallery was the first gallery to display works from our artists. The opening reception was held on August 23rd from 6-8pm. Once a year Ticka Arts will put together an exhibition for our online gallery artists. We already have our next city picked out, so stay connected to find out the goings on of Ticka Arts. To view the gallery and the opening reception click on the Ticka Arts Exhibition @ O2 Gallery link above to take a gander.
Thank you to all the artists, the donors, and the volunteers (meaning my parents) who helped make our first exhibition wonderful.
On an even brighter note. Ticka Arts had a wonderful time in New Jersey. We would like to thank everyone who assisted in putting the conference together, as well as the wonderful new friends we had the opportunity to meet. Speaking at the Society for Photographic Educations Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference was a special treat for us. We look forward to the national conference in March.
Finally we would like to introduce to you a new group of artists that we now have on the Ticka Arts website. We have beautiful images on display by photographers Tiffany Smith, Gina Phillips, and Christopher Mortenson. We’ve also included works from Italian artist Chiara Baragatti. In our Photographic Essay section we are thankful for having Ashley M. Jones’ work on display. Thank you to all the artists on the site so far! We love your work!
