Cuernavaca Arts Cooperative – Our Neighborhood: An Art Show @ Laura’s
May 21 – Aug 6 all-day

Join us for a summer art show inspired by our neighborhood. This exhibit will feature multiple mediums by local artists from the Cuernavaca Arts Cooperative. Come enjoy these one-of-a-kind works drawn from our very own splendid environs.

We will be having a Reception on Sunday, May 26 at Laura’s.

The Cuernavaca Arts Cooperative is a cooperative support group for visual artists that live in or near the Lake Hills neighborhood in Austin, TX. Our purpose is to create a community of artists to network, share ideas, as well as to support and inspire one another. We are here to promote the arts in general within our local community.
