Buckle up folks, the 10th annual East Austin Studio Tour kicks off tomorrow. Running both this weekend and next, this is your opportunity to check out (and purchase) a ton of local artists’ work. Considering the hundreds of artists on the tour, it can be overwhelming to try and tackle the entire list. If you’ve never hit the tour before, my advice is to start with the larger studio complexes that house multiple artists’ spaces…like the Pump Project (stop #57) and its Satellite (#76), Big Medium (#75), Smith Road Studios (#67), Flatbed Press, Bay 6 (#73), Splinter Group South (#53), and Artpost (#54).
My favorite stops:
Jennifer Chenoweth at Fisterra Studio, Stop #8
Michael Yates Design, #44
Court Lurie at Artpost, #53
Satch Grimley at Red Bluff Studios, #56. Satch is a silkscreen artist by day, so he usually has amazing concert posters for sale during the tour in addition to his outstanding (and affordable) art.
Damon Arhos at Pump Project, #57
Susannah Blanton, #59
Zoe Comings ceramic tile, jewelry and vessels, #70
Cari Washburn at Pigoata Studios, #74
Judy Paul at Big Medium, #75
Clarke Curtis at Big Medium,#75
Shea Little at Big Medium, #75
John Mulvany, #84
Catherine Dudley at 701 Tillery, #91
Cherie Weaver at The Bread House, #92
Sara Hasslinger (Monsterlove), #95
Susan Wallace custom aluminum grillwork, #109
Jennifer Balkan at The Little Blue House, #122
This tour is one of the highlights of my whole year…I highly recommend it!
