At any given time, dozens of artists, young and old, brand new and experienced, can be found creating their own masterpieces at Hausmann Millworks on Russell Place.
And now until Feb. 25 several pieces of this work will be on display for the public’s pleasure at the Critical Mass Exhibit happening at the millworks.
“We have a sign here that says, “Grow where you’re planted,” Rex Hausmann said. “That really resonates with me as we’re the most unique studio facility in South Texas and there’s so many great local artists here in San Antonio.”
The exhibit gives the public a chance to tour the millworks and also see pieces from international artists as well as locals.
“It’s a really unique environment here and I think people will really like to see all we have going on in our studios,” Hausmann said.
Viewings of the exhibit are by appointment only. For more information, log onto www.millworks.gallery
