David Amdur was a staple of the Austin art community for much of his life, from his days at the UT film school, to Amdur Gallery and Frame in downtown Austin, to his dream home he designed and built. Drawings, paintings, prints, music posters, wood furniture, wood and stone sculpture, Amdur was a master at it. 

This exhibit is not ordinary. Five decades of Amdur's art will be on display. It is a different show than initially imagined when drawing up the starter list for the gallery. But with his passing, it became more important to help disseminate his work to the Austin community and beyond.

It's rather fitting that the gallery has both "high" and "low" art on display, as Amdur himself was never too proud, taking any job over the years, with grace. The humble spoon and fork were taken to higher planes. Music posters he designed for the likes of Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators; Barton Springs meditations in drawings, prints, and paintings; wood "objets d'art", furniture and sculpture. Some of his work is sprinkled with humor, others are the essence of pure beauty and wonder.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until June 25.
