Architecture at the Umlauf Series - Thursday September 3rd 7:00PM

The next event of the third season of the Architecture at the Umlauf Series season takes this place Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 pm.

The monthly series was founded and is produced by two of my associates at AvenueOne properties; Scott Harvey and Carla Umlauf (granddaughter of the esteemed sculptor) and is sponsored by our firm, AvenueOne Properties and hosted by The Umlauf Torchbearers. The lectures take place at the beautiful Umlauf Sculpture Garden and the series is now in the second half of its hugely successful third season.  Rick Black is the featured speaker. Catering will be provided by The Steeping Room. There is a minimal charge of $5.00 for the event but is free to museum members. Come out and enjoy an excellent talk in this beautiful venue. You might want to show up early because this event has been at capacity at all of the previous lectures!

Thanks again for your continued support I look forward to seeing you there!

Hello Russell-I am with Cynthia, if you attend and take pics I hope you will come back and post them. It is most definitely something I would enjoy attending if I was in TX.  Enjoy it if you attend. Have a great week. <SMILE> P.S. Your First Day of School Post was awesome.  I can tell you are a wonderful Dad. Thank you for sharing such a touching and heartfelt post. Well done. <SMILE>

Can't make it Russell.  I'll be turning 50 that day.

You know, that is a great suggestion. Take pictures during the event and also of the grounds and post about the Umlauf Sculpture Garden. It would make a cool Localism post!

Hi Russell,

Thanks for getting the word out. Sounds like a wonderful event. Would love to hear some follow up on this!

Posted by Dorie Dillard: Canyon Creek & NW Austin Living (Coldwell Banker United) about 1 year ago

OK. This is a bit off topic (so what else is new?) but I got stuck on the word "Umlauf". Is that someone's name? It sounds distinctly German (which I am... ) so my curiosity got me stuck there. =)

Posted by Lisa Hill (Daytona Beach Real Estate) (Florida Property Experts) about 1 year ago

Hi Russell-This sure sounds like it would be a enjoyable and relaxing event. Are you planning to attend. Hope you had a great day. :-)

Posted by Pat Preston (RE/MAX 1st Olympic Lynchburg Va) about 1 year ago

Susan NO WAY!!! You are not 50...But do enjoy your Birthday, we celebrate all week long at the Lewis house!

Mattie I am going to do that and it would be a good way to showcase the Sculpture Garden!

Patricia Thanks, it's one of many reasons to visit and if you ever do, give us a call!

Scott You are welcome, you and Carla have done a magnificent job with this event!

June Hello my friend! Yes, after the comments, I am going to write another post and give more details about the venue. And yes, I am fortunate to work at a place that encourages creativity, energy AND production!

Marchel Thanks, it's a monthly event that takes a break over the summer and has been an excellent way to engage the public about Architects and architecture!

Dorie We have had wonderful attendance and feedback at this event and I will post more in the future!

Hi Lisa You are correct, it is German and is named for the local sculptor, Charles Umlauf.

Here is a link to the site for more info http://www.umlaufsculpture.org/

Hey there, I was checking back in to see that you are FINALLY posting again. Thanks for posting about this cool event! Nice to see you back blogging!

Posted by Lindsay about 1 year ago

Renee Yes, this is an event you would really enjoy!

Tomas & Mary I agree and it's an excellent way to put architects and the public together to learn more!

Betina Yeah, it finally got a tiny bit cooler so it's on again and thanks for stopping by!

Diane I am very fortunate to work with a diverse and well connected group that actively promotes this and other great events throughout Austin! Thanks!

Karen This is one of my favorite places in Austin but the Architecture event, held there and sponsored by our company is something I really enjoy promoting!

Susan Thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a fantastic birthday!!!

Lisa Central Texas is home to many people of German descent as the area was settled waaaaaaaay back by German settlers! As far as you and school, I have a feeling you always managed to hold your own in any situation!

Caren Funny you should mention that but I received a smal digital movie camera for my birthday earlier this summer and plan to start using it soon!

Lindsay So nice to see you here and yes I am going to start posting on a regular basis again! Thanks for stopping by!

Okey Dokey, I was popping back to see if you posted any photos Russell!

Cynthia Hi there and thanks for stopping back by! I did not take pictures at this one but plan to at the next one in October!!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Cool Russell, I'll be looking for it. I know some functions & galleries do not let you take photos, and I can completely understand that rule.

Posted by Cynthia Bartch ~ Redesigned Spaces ~ all round nice gal... (Home Stager/Property Stylist & more! Granville, Ohio) about 1 year ago

Cynthia, thanks again! Actually we do have permission to take pictures and your comments have inspired me to do a post about this very cool Austin location!
