Austin artist Valerie Fowler has created a body of work that includes paintings, drawings and mixed media inspired by the light, air, and landscape that is Flower Hill, the 1877 Austin home to three generations of the Smoot family.
The Neill-Cochran House Museum, in collaboration with the Flower Hill Foundation, will display Fowler’s works in an exhibit titled “Art at Flower Hill,” on view September 1-15.
Fowler, known for her oil paintings and intricate drawings of the natural world, spent more than a year exploring Austin’s historic Flower Hill, which is now surrounded by downtown Austin. These works, while still based in nature, also explore how human interaction with the environment alters it. Various household items left behind by the home’s previous inhabitants all make their way into Fowler’s exhibit.
