Louis Shanks Furniture will hold a special event with interior designer Bobby Berk, one of the stars of the popular Netflix series Queer Eye and local musician and artist Bob Schneider on THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2020 from 6 – 8 PM.
Bobby Berk is best known as the design guru on Netflix’s Queer Eye, but his rise to fame didn’t happen overnight. After years in the creative and design field, he took the leap to start his own brand. Epitomizing hip, urban luxury, Berk’s designs reflect a stylish and youthful spirit that perfectly fits any lifestyle.
Bob Schneider is best known for his music, but he is also a very serious and accomplished visual artist. Images and text, cut from old magazines and books, combine with ink and paint to make faces bursting with gorgeous flowers, nightmare intestines, pinup girls, cowboys, WWII fighter planes, faces, eyes and all kinds of cultural ephemera.
The collaboration is part of a program created by KMFA Classical 89.5 Radio, Austin Home Magazine, and Louis Shanks Furniture called Art & Design. The program pairs a new local or regional artist each month with an interior designer to create a custom gallery in the Louis Shanks showroom. This event creates a space for consumers to view art in a natural setting as it might appear in a home or office space and gives local artists the opportunity to be exposed to consumers actively seeking to purchase art and home décor items.
The Art & Design Gallery Opening featuring Schneider’s work along with interior design by Bobby Berk will take place on THURSDAY, MARCH 5 from 6 PM to 8 PM at Louis Shanks Furniture, located at 2930 West Anderson Lane, Austin, TX 78757. Both Schneider and Berk will be on hand and guests will also enjoy light bites from Cover 3 restaurant along with sips by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Milam & Greene Whiskey, and Topo Chico Mineral Water. Alex Lew from Austin Classical Guitar will also perform at the event.
