Our Story

Busy-Being was launched in 2004 and is owned and operated by Amber Abramson, a Los Angeles native living in Austin, TX where the Busy-Being brick and mortar shop now resides. Amber has been a working curator and art dealer since 2002 in addition to being the former director of LA's "four x four Gallery" and the ongoing associate director of the famed "New Image Art Gallery" in Los Angeles. She has curated exhibitions internationally and has been working closely with artists of all mediums in platforms ranging from art galleries, public murals, corporate campaigns and events, museum work, community workshops, non-profit sector, political arena, book and catalog production, as well as retail pursuits. 


In February 2013 Busy-Being relocated to it's current location where we share a storefront space with Solid Gold TX, a women's boutique in East Austin owned by Katie Friedman.
