"I loved it when Big Medium organized the first East. It brought together the whole east Austin art community and gave us all an opportunity to show and sell our work and establish relationships with patrons and other artists. Long live Big Medium and East. I'm a big fan." - Ethan Azarian, East Artist since 2003

"As an organization, Big Medium is small but mighty. They have blazed trails within the contemporary art community in Austin. Big Medium has set the standard for grassroots organization with an impressive ‘build it yourself’ attitude that has inspired organizations to take risks and push the barriers of their own limitations." - Leslie Moody Castro, 2017 Texas Biennial Independant Curator

"Having a solo exhibition at Big Medium was a huge opportunity for me. The gallery provided a fantastic platform to show my work, and I learned so much through the process. The Big Medium Gallery is an essential point in Austin's arts community, an innovative and welcoming space where artists and audiences grow together." - Lauren Moya Ford, Big Medium Gallery Artist, 2016
