Where:  The Sky Lounge on The Gables’ Rooftop at 300 West Avenue and W 3rd Street, Austin, TX
Admission:  FREE

Manifestations Artistiques is a multi-medium Art Collective that produces artistic events.  The Sky Lounge Soiree is a free special event created to showcase the work of local Visual, Musical, and Performance Artists.  The Sky Lounge is located on the rooftop of The Gables in Downtown Austin.  The event’s Door Staff will welcome you at the entrance and escort you up the elevator.  The rooftop provides a panorama view of the  Austin city lights, which will serve as the backdrop in presenting the work of local Austin Artists.

Visual Art by local Austin Artists will be curated by Coley Jackson.  Patrons are invited to meet and speak with the exhibiting Artists over a complimentary cocktail, provided by Austin’s 360 Eco-Friendly Vodka.  All artwork is available for purchase at the event through Manifestations Artisitiques.  Please read below for the list of Visual Artists presenting at the event.


7:00 – 9:00PM  Austin’s musical talent, Atlas Maior will spice up the night with some hot jazz numbers.

The Atlais Maior Trio makes indigenous American music given birth through Jazz, Indian classical & folk, Classical Arabic, Southeastern European, Flamenco, North & West African & Native American musical traditions.

9:00 – 10:00PM  Bold! Daring! True! will be singing delightful vaudevillian and holiday melodies.

Bold! Daring! True! is an old-time trio with a diverse repertoire of folk, classic Hollywood/Tin Pan Alley, old Dixieland jazz, spirituals, and some more modern tunes with a throwback flavor.

10:00 – 11:00  Canadian Singer,  Carolyn Mark will also be performing, not as a local musician, but in support of Austin Artists.

Carolyn Mark delivers her own brand of modern vaudeville. A raven-haired siren in a scarlet gown- love songs, simple riffs, and dirty jokes.


The Sky Lounge Screening Room will feature short films by local filmmakers, curated by Jose Lozano with Magic Spoon Productions.

The Screening Room will also present live digital painting and dance performances by ARTheism.

ARTheism is the live “dancimation” performance art of Topher Sipes and Samantha Beasley. Live, hand-drawn animation is projected directly onto a dancing body providing an optical interplay between improvisation and choreography set to music.
