Sydney Yeager’s Persistent Memory Exhibit
August 29 – October 26, 2014 The Gallery at Vaudeville presents Sydney Yeager’s "Persistent Memory" Exhibit
Private Opening Thursday, August 28th 6:30 – 8:30pm

“This exhibition spans the years 2009 to the present, and represents my evolving interest in fragmentation and the dissolution of the whole into singular, independent parts. The idea arose as I visited ancient ruins in Italy,Turkey, Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. As well as these ancient sites, I find the demolition sites that I pass en route to my studio to be fascinating. Some of the paintings are loosely based on photographs of these sites. In my mind, there is a connection between these construction sites and the ancient ruins I love to visit. Both exist in a dreamlike space, neither here nor there, but in between.

In addition, my influences include Italian Baroque ceiling paintings, the preserved fragments of Roman fresco,Italian mosaics, pixilation, and process painting.

These diverse influences hold in common the themes of fragmentation and transition. The question is whether these fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past, or the beginnings of a new form. The answer is never clear, and is always interesting to me.”

- Sydney Yeager

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "

5 Eco-Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas

Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
