WEST Austin Studio Tour Pop-Up Featuring Brooke Mackenzie, Yuliya Lanina, Sarah Davis & Nick Schnitzer

Polyglot Gallery is happy to announce that it will be opening up its by appointment only space as a pop-up gallery for the WEST Austin studio tour which takes place Saturday and Sunday April 27 -28 and May 4-5, where they will be showcasing artwork by Austin-based artists Brooke Mackenzie, Yuliya Lanina and Nick Schnitzer and New York City artist, Sarah Davis.


Brooke Mackenzie graduated from UT with a BFA and then went on to receive her MFA at the Edinburgh College of Art. Her artwork is characterized by its intricacy and attention to detail that often lends her work the illusion of an airy tapestry. A common theme in her body of work is the passage of time, which she illustrates by imbedding images of clock gears and illustrations of the budding, flowering and wilting of a flower, amongst other subtle images. Drawn with delicate lines and a subtle palette, Mackenzie beckons her spectator to slow down and pay attention to the details which slowly reveal themselves.

Yuliya Lanina is a Russian- born American multimedia artist who paints on canvas and paper, makes animations and animatronic sculptures which portray alternate realities that fuse fantasy, femininity, and humor. On exhibit will be her fantastical paintings and video of her signature grotesque yet beautiful imagery work that simultaneously elicit feelings of uneasiness and empathy.

Sarah Davis is a New York based artist whose work has been featured worldwide on subjects ranging from boisterous celebrity culture to tranquil urban and rural landscapes. On exhibit at Polyglot is a selection of her pastel works on paper from the series “Stars and Cars”. Work from this series has been shown in Switzerland, London, Houston and now Austin and has received rave reviews.

Nick Schnitzer was Polyglot’s first artist to be showcased in January in Austin. Return to see his meditative photo reactive and sometime kinetic wall sculptures and paintings come to life with a new led light box installation.
