Doug LaRue - A Solo Show
On March 9th, Gallery Lucid will be presenting a solo show by Doug LaRue. This will be something a little different than the artists we typically present. Doug is an Austin-local painter, photographer, and ink artist.
He was exposed to a wide range of creative expression at an early age and embraced the organic nature of painting expressed by his mother, and the technical aspects of Photography and Design he drew from his father, an Engineer.
LaRue took classes in photography at SMU and interned with several photographers including Dan Coleman, a peer of Ansel Adams in the 60’s. He got a BS in Environmental Design while working as a photojournalist and artist for newspapers and magazines
Doug is always creating. He has worked in architecture, been a creative director, a medical illustrator, a photographer, cinematographer, a painter, and he owned and operated an arts Zine in Austin.
Join us for his solo show. It will be sponsored by The Brewtorium; lite fare will be provided, and the show will run through April 6th.
Join us for a FREE reception and art show at Gallery Lucid with artist Elliot Rogers for his first solo show - “Mindscapes” as we celebrate his vibrantly colored, mind-bending artwork from 6pm to 9pm on Dec. 15th. Elliot constructs hypnotic spaces and surreal mindscapes which reflect his inner meditative visions and explore the connection between the self and the alien other. Pair this with live music by Fyo͞oɡ (aka William Allan Ross), as well as a preview of Elliot’s upcoming album of electronic music (Mystic Prism).
Elliot’s work is the kind you can get lost in while listening to ethereal tones that warp along with the fold of psychedelic patterns on the canvas. The magic is that Elliot composes and performs that very music. He is known for reality-challenging art and chill, flowing music. Elliot’s art combines aspects of surrealism, abstraction, and psychedelic visionary art. Using vibrant colors, mathematical forms, and repetition, he constructs hypnotic spaces, which reflect inner meditative visions and explore the connection between the self and the alien other.

Elliot will have large and small original paintings, as well as prints and giclées available for purchase. We usually require that purchased paintings stay up throughout the show, but as this is the gift-giving season, we will be allowing those who desire to take the works home with them that night!
Enjoy complimentary creative spirits from Dulce Vida Tequila -Austin (including a return of the favorite Perfect Paloma)
Join Gallery Lucid for this highly-anticipated FREE EVENT on December 8th, as we welcome back visionary artist Leah Dorrian to close out her first solo-artist exhibition. Not only are we welcoming her back, we are welcoming her to Austin. She loved Austin so much when she visited for the opening of her show, she decided this is where she wants to live! Our city is different and amazing and artists from everywhere recognize it the moment they get to Austin.
Join us from 6pm to 9pm to meet Leah Dorrian, enjoy liquors and liqueurs provided by Revolution Spirits, deliciously dark craft beer brewed by Black Star Co-op, and delicious organic coffee from Fat Cat's of Austin.
Leah's art is a form of communication which expresses the subconscious, spirituality, beauty, divinity, and nature in various archetypal modalities. It is embedded with symbols and messages that invite the viewer into intuitive contemplation of the intrinsic nature of the human experience beyond our physical reality. Venturing deep into the mind, Leah's art captures the reverberations of what she has discovered and wishes to share with the collective consciousness to illuminate an ambience of mystery, magic, and peace. From Akashic Records to torroidal unfoldings, Leah's works epitomize the upward shift of human consciousness.
10% of sales for the entire run of the show will go to benefit All Things Wild Rehabilitation. ATW rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured, orphaned, and displaced wildlife and release them back into the appropriate habitat and also provides sanctuary for all animals in need. This charity was chosen by the artist, Leah Dorrian.
Thanks to all of our amazing sponsors!
