Upcoming Exhibitions & Events

Gary Floyd: The Elder Child (Exhibition Dates: May 4th - May 31st, 2018)

Prizer Arts & Letters is honored to be exhibiting a selection of paintings by legendary musician and artist Gary Floyd. In Austin in 1980, Floyd co-founded and was the lead singer of the punk band The Dicks. As an openly gay punk musician in the 80's, Floyd is considered a queer icon and music pioneer. He has gone on to front bands such as Sister Double Happiness, Gary Floyd Band, Black Kali Ma and The Buddha Brothers. The Elder Child pays homage to Floyd's irrepressible creativity and sense of wonder. Come take it all in and welcome Gary back to Austin for this exhibition!

Opening Reception: Friday, May 4th, 6pm to 9pm

Open Gallery & Performance by The Himalayan Mountain Boys: Saturday, May 5th, 3pm to 8pm; musical performace by Gary, Buxf, Walter Daniels, and Mark Smotroff will begin at 4pm.
