Koelsch Gallery

march 23rd, 2024 - april 27th, 2024

koelsch gallery is pleased to present our latest exhibition Geoff Winningham: 101 Chiripadas, debuting Saturday, March 23rd, 2024. Winningham translates the real world and its insatiable desire for creation into what he presents as a collection of chiripadas, “unplanned but surprisingly successful collaborations”. In a series of photographs captured between 1998 and 2024, he collaborates with an unwitting string of both the animate and inanimate. Whispering scratches, shouts of sprayed paint, cast shadows, meandering figures, and civil structures unify in the capture of social rhythm and cultural constellation. In a showcase like never before, Winningham reveals that beauty is as present as ever, merely awaiting to be found.

february 22nd, 2024 - march 16th, 2024

koelsch gallery is honored to announce our latest exhibition The Taplet Twins, a showcase dedicated to the life and legacy of twin brothers Alfred “Big Al” and Alvin “Little Al” Taplet. Known for their infectious spirit and uncanny ability to find delight in the simple things, their journey tells a story of unconditional love throughout hardship, hurricanes, and even death. Join us for an evening of life and laughter as we celebrate two shoe-shiner turned folk artists. We will be recreating their folk art gallery & shoe shine business that was once located in New Orleans. Bring a pair of dirty shoes as our friend Brother C. will be shining!

koelsch gallery is pleased to announce our latest exhibition, Dream Language, debuting Saturday, January 13th, 2024. Through the exquisite medium of sculpture and assemblage, self-taught artist Claire Cusack translates visions and memories of the dream world into a compelling visual narrative. Inspired by found objects and discarded materials, she reinvents the context of these once-forgotten entities and gives them a second chance at life. By providing these remnants of the past with a new purpose, she tells a tale of hope and new beginnings. For Cusack, these discovered wonders possess individual voices that play a vital role in her story. After the passing of her husband in 2005, she began to have precognitive dreams that foreshadowed her future creations. Dream Language is her great attempt to evocate said visions and transmute them into a tangible experience.

november 11th, 2023 - december 16th, 2023

Enter the mind of Martin Bernstein in his first-ever exhibition with koelsch gallery in Touchstones, debuting Saturday, November 11th, 2023. The multi-disciplinary artist tells a never-ending story of self-discovery through his mastered works of installation, painting, sculpture, and jeweled objects. Join us for a harmonious display connected by its many mediums and countless narratives, told through trendils of beads and cords and lights alike, intertwined and meandered like vines left to their own devices for a lifetime. With some elements dancing together and some standing alone, Bernstein creates a universe of infinite imagination, playfully taking the viewer through an open-ended story full of ideas, thoughts, dreams, innuendos, and possibilities – bridging the gap between fantasy and reality.

september 16th, 2023 - october 21st, 2023

koelsch gallery is honored to announce our newest visual artist, Austin-based collagist Lance Letscher. Best known for his dexterous three-dimensional illusions, Letscher meticulously constructs his compositions from a variety of discarded and found objects from a myriad of sources. With antique notebooks and magazines to record covers and letter fragments, Letscher creates powerful compositions fueled by their juxtaposition of color and value.
