Welcome to the Price Center's Tiny Garden Gallery! Here you will find artworks from our San Marcos Community displayed within the space. The Tiny Garden Gallery was donated by Karen Cross originally as an outdoor library, repurposed to become an outdoor gallery space within the Price Center Garden.
The outdoor gallery brings in those who pass by to be drawn in by the artwork within. This space is a starting point of the artwork displayed throughout the Garden, so make sure you go look for the other artworks hidden within the bushes!
The outdoor gallery is a rotating gallery which allows many artists to apply and display their work in the Garden. Every few weeks the Price Center will release a new artist call for new artwork to be placed in the Gallery.
Be Aware! The dimensions of the Gallery are 22 x 14 inches. No artwork larger that 20 x 12 inches!
About the artist: Madeline enjoys making work that brings some humor to the viewer. She often draws aesthetic inspiration from animation and comics.

Luna Lane art is a mixed media exploration in search of all things authentic and imperfectly charming. This current series is focused on ceramics and finding beauty in even the most simple and raw forms. While creating a variety of shapes through repetition and surrender to the natural movement, colors and textures of clay- these calming chime bells emerged. Through my art journey, these pieces served as a soft reminder to trust the process and allow the medium to work it's own way into form and being..
My art is not directly representative of my life’s struggles, but about the collective experience of what it’s like processing trauma: isolation, building walls, setting boundaries, and learning the difference between healing one’s heart and guarding it - accepting the scars of my past. My past work has been about gilding scars (broken butterfly and organ series), imagery with broken pieces filled with gold leaf and thread. Healing. Living with scars but seeing the beauty and strength in overcoming. Recently I’m delving deeper into the experience of that which creates brokenness and scars: the coping, the struggle. I’m exploring the escapist mindset in experiencing trauma. A woman’s disassociation required to handle crises, compartmentalizing. Losing herself as her colors fade and daydreaming of escape or hiding in order to just deal with daily routine in toxic relationships, generational sadness and mental illness. Isolation.

That, and a few welding and blacksmithing classes at Austin Community College minimally prepared her for the vast and intrepid world of metal upcycling. She has been happily engaged making jewelry and art from vintage decorative tins for nearly two decades now. She also enjoys making collages, collecting and sharing good things and swimming in the headwaters of the gorgeous river that begins in San Marcos, TX where she lives with her husband and two boys.About the Artist:

As my three daughters left home in various stages, I came upon little boxes of incomplete or broken jewelry they no longer wanted (or even knew they had!). I was inspired by some of the single earrings, broken strands of beads or brooches to construct little works of art based on the various pieces. In some cases, I deconstructed and then reconstructed. Upon seeing the results, friends then offered me little bags and boxes of like materials. Away I went - to the number of 53 mini canvases!

I love art, it is my passion. I have a BFA in Studio Art from UT Austin, TX. I use paint, paper and fabric in my art work. I love sewing with a machine and hand stitching. Sewing on paper creates beautiful textures. Textures, patterns, less color than more and soothing compositions are what I aim for when making art.
