Contracommon is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit arts organization that focuses on being a collaborative community for emerging artists.
Established by a group of artists across multiple disciplines, we work to create an inclusive community where everyone’s voice is valid. Moreover, we offer members affordable studio spaces, workshops, and have a dedicated gallery space for members to share their work.
Located just west of Austin, TX, Contracommon has a dedicated 1200 sq/foot gallery space, 12 artist studios, communal work space, office, onsite laundry, and kitchen. Sound booth, dark room, and other amenities are also in the works.
We believe in providing artists the opportunity to present their work to the world without the obstacles of a traditional studio/gallery arrangement.
From Almost Real Things…
December 1 & 2, 2018
“Art, and life, require collaboration. Even if you’re accustomed to plugging in and zoning out, endless hours in solitude will only get you so far. New people and new ideas challenge you, support you, and open up new avenues of creativity.
For this reason, we explored the theme of Juxtaposition for our end of the year double issue, to celebrate creative differences and show what can be made when diverse perspectives come together (cue The Beatles please). This issue features work and interviews from 56 fantastic creatives in and around Austin.”
Taylor collaborated with Austin artist Matthew Trujillo to create an artwork featured in this issue! The piece will be unveiled at the ART Club Block Party on December 1st and 2nd. The event is two full days of art, music, and collaboration. It will be held at Meet at Relay from 2-8pm each day.

From Southwestern University's Sarofim Gallery...
APRIL 4 – 9, 2017
The Art and Art History Department at Southwestern University presents three senior art exhibitions for the Bachelor of Arts degree by Taylor Bailey, Eamon Rogers, and William H. Soller in the Sarofim Gallery, East Rutersville Drive, Georgetown, Texas. All three artists explore both the internal and external landscape.
Taylor Bailey’s exhibition, Land: Unsettled, uses large-scale, monochromatic works on paper and canvas to explore the influences of nature and human architecture on framing the perception of landscape, questioning what constitutes the idea of landscape from a cultural and historical perspective. The dichotomy of organic form and structured geometry meet in a new dimension in her work, where a chaotic fight for dominance takes place between the natural and constructed environment.
Can a pot evoke a multi sensory experience of our own natural landscapes? Eamon Rogers’ exhibition of ceramic vessels Careful Splendor asks how the landscape is experienced: visually or through immersion? The synthesis of form and finish are an expression of the artist’s personal landscape, and the work implores the user to carefully observe and explore the vessel as one navigates their own personal environment.
Disjointed /// Memory /// Pieces /// Together is an exhibition by William H. Soller of large, colorful paintings that search for personal and communal identity through memory and shared experience. He uses abstract and representational forms to create mental landscapes where seemingly unrelated objects find connections manifold; these reflections aim to both bring together and isolate identities.
The reception is on Thursday, April 6 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. with artists’ talks beginning at 5p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
