Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery presents Umlauf Generations
One Texas artist has become nearly synonymous with sculpture on a regional, and even national scale — Charles Umlauf (1911 – 1994). Austin residents are no doubt already familiar with the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum, which showcases 51 pieces of his sculpture in verdant gardens among babbling brooks.
However, most people are unaware that he had six children — four of whom became artists and have produced remarkable work that is building upon the already visually luxuriant Umlauf legacy. The Russell Collection will present a show comprised of the work of Charles Umlauf as well as that of his children: Arthur, Madelon, Lynn, and Karl. All of the work displayed will be available for purchase.
The four Umlauf children will be on hand at the opening reception on April 2, 6-8 pm. Please RSVP at 512-478-4440.
