Come See Me Get My Butt Kicked in Ping Pong

Women and Their Work is a non-profit organization in Austin, TX that promotes women artists. The heartbeat of their operation is their centrally-located art gallery, which has won ‘Best Gallery’ in Austin at least five times in recent years.

Since launching in 1978, Women and Their Work has promoted 1,787 artists in 248 exhibitions, organized 109 music, theater and dance events, 19 literary readings, 13 film festivals, and 328 workshops.

These birds are busy. And they are damn good at what they do.

Which why I am deeply privileged to be involved with their 30th Anniversary Celebration. This Saturday April 19th, Women and Their Work is hosting a bash that is not to be missed:

Saturday April 19th from 7 until 10 pm
Be a part of the year’s most entertaining and unpredictable party

Click Here To Get Your Tickets Online

There will be a silent auction with wonderful art by Kate Breakey, Candace Briceno, Diana Dopson, Joey Fauerso, Malou Flato, Martha Gannon, Emily Tracy-Haas, Jan Heaton, Lance Letscher, Bonnie Lynch, and Denise Prince Martin.

There will be all sorts of InterActivities such as playing ping pong with national champs. That's right, you heard me. Ping Pong. Now I don't think I'm very good at ping pong -- but then again I've never played in heels. Could be my magic weapon. Don't you want to come see how this plays out?

And you don't want to miss the other InterActivities such as wii, xbox, guitar hero, Atari, performance dance, disco dancing, quick draw portraits, and comedic video interviews with our good friends from The Midlife Gals.

Don’t you want to show your support for the women of Texas who keep putting the ART in PARTY? Here are some easy ways to help:

1. But a ticket and come drink and dance this Saturday night
2. Email this post to anyone and everyone
3. If you can’t make the party, then consider becoming a friend of Women and Their Work

Women. Art. Parties. Libations. It’s a good combination – help us keep it going for another 30 years….

CF in heels playing ping pong. It's a toss up between that and you on stage with the governor in fish nets. Either way, I'm sure it's well worth the price of admission!

That sounds like so much fun. I think I would rock a ping pong tourney....

I love going to art shows here in cincinnati. Nothing feels better than buying a piece of art and knowing that the money is going back to the artist.

That's AWESOME! Actually my daughter show just opened in Austin and I think she is part of Reel Women. I think what you are doing is great. I really have enjoyed reading your posts. Sorry I have not been blogging lately! I have been taping shows which I am excited about because I was able to post them on my blog YAY!! If you get a chance to check it out, then let me know what you think. The more feedback I get the better I can make the segments Also, your stories are great and my whole idea behind this show is for other moms to share real stories like you do. Anyway, I’d love to hear from you.
