Spellerberg Projects announces the opening of its second gallery space in Lockhart, Texas, 30 minutes south of Austin. The new space, Spellerberg Projects, Masur Gallery, occupies a circa 1900 building in the heart of the city’s historic downtown. Owner Marty Spellerberg opened the first space, Spellerberg Projects, in 2016, and has featured work by local, national and international artists, as well as public programs and community events. The Spellerberg Projects spaces serve as cultural hubs for the city’s burgeoning artistic community.
“I’m thrilled to open my second gallery in downtown Lockhart, activating the Masur building with artistic and cultural energy to create a new essential destination in the historic district,” Spellerberg says. “Opening Spellerberg Projects was a signifier of the change that was taking place in Lockhart, and over the past two years the vibrant community growth has made a second space viable.”
The space features a schedule of art exhibitions and installations, and it presents music performances, film screenings and art activations, as well as invites community organizations to host meetings, forums and a variety of events. Spellerberg partners with members of the Lockhart and Austin arts and culture scenes to bring world-class contemporary art to Lockhart.
The Masur Gallery grand opening includes exhibition openings featuring artists Elana Langer, Chris St. Leger, and Honoria Starbuck, live music by Rain Cross Trio, and a voter registration booth in support of Art Action Day.
