New works by Lance McMahan
Saturday April 18th, 6 – 9 PM

Bearded Lady General is proud to present a show by Lance McMahan.

Lance McMahan is a Texas native who has been creating and showing mixed media artwork since 1995. He’s been an active Austin musician for 20 years and has performed in the past as Attic Ted and is currently with the band Palit. He was a regular contributor to the much-missed San Marcos based art publication Proper Gander, and was involved with Camp Fig – an early gallery effort of the Okay Mountain crew.

His skills as a carpenter have also been playing a larger part in his recent works, as he has been building tiny scale models of houses recalled from his past, often with petite versions of his paintings placed in the windows. His upcoming show will be a mix of paintings and these intricate wooden structures.


Here are some photos from a studio visit with Lance in preparation for the show.

Come by and see what happens when Mason McFee and Connor O’Leary paint on eachother’s work tonight from 7-10. “Public Private” will be hanging for the rest of the month, so if you can’t make it this evening, come poke your head in the shop anytime in December to get a good look.

Last Weekend at EAST

Don’t miss out on the last weekend of EAST. Looks like the weather is going to be a little bit ugly, but lucky for you, we’ve got close parking and plenty of space for warm and dry bodies.

We’ll have some vinyls on the decks, spun by some of your good buddies and plenty of beer to go around. Not to mention we’ll have artwork being printed during the weekend and hanging on the walls. Don’t forget pop-up shops from New Bohemia and Been Bags.

Artwork and prints from Anna Gogusey, Rich Cali, Jessica Clark, Caitlin Alexander, Abi Daniel and Mason McFee.

Come one, come all! Let’s finish this EAST off with a bang!





Get Peaced at EAST

We’re super pumped up about this year’s EAST. We’ve not only spruced up our retail area to accomodate room for two pop-up shops, but we’ll have a print exhibition from a handful of Austin artists hanging as well. Look for artwork from Rich Cali, Anna Gogusey, Jessica Clark, Caitlin Alexander, Mason McFee and Abi Daniel.

We hope to see you, come through, have a beer and relax at Bearded Lady.
