Beauty is Embarrassing at Domy Books, March 11

Beauty is Embarrassing, one of this year’s documentary films slated to debut at SXSW–featuring the art of Wayne White, also comes in the form of an art exhibition at Domy Books in Austin—opening Sunday, March 11th, 7:00 – 10:00 pm. The exhibition is produced in collaboration with Brkly and Marty Walker Gallery and exhibits through April 19, 2012.

The film is a celebration of Wayne White’s brilliance as an experimental, fun artist. However, fun, in White’s case, does not imply a lack of technical ability.

Although White has worked as illustrator for prestigious publications such as the New York Times, and Village Voice, my generation might best remember him as the designer for Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

On opening night the artist will be present signing his book, Maybe Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve.

Wayne has an upcoming solo exhibition, I Say A Lot of Things, opening March 31 and running through May 5, 2012 at Marty Walker Gallery in Dallas, TX.
