Austin, while known for being 'weird', is also overwhelmingly considered a hub of creative thinkers and artistic souls. You can find great art in Austin any day, but there's one weekend a year that's the perfect time to experience Austin's unique artistic community: the East Austin Studio Tour. Happening this weekend on Austin's East Side, we've gathered some of our top picks for studios and artists to visit this year to help those who are here narrow down their list and those who won't be here have a taste of Austin art.
Okay Mountain Gallery This gallery always has interesting and thought-provoking artist exhibits, and we're expecting nothing less for the studio tour.
Jacob Borshard, Cartoonist We love the whimsical and free-flowing spirit of this cartoonist and love even more the idea of bringing this kind of fun to a wall in your home.
Germaine Keller Studio This artist's career of mixing surprising mediums together to create art always has us excited to see what he's going to create next.
Studio 1308 Three photographers, all in one studio. We love the mix of traditional photography along with commercial and product photography, proving everything looks great as art.
Arthur Simone, painter This award-winning painter has created a new series of paintings that are high-energy, brightly colored and a stark departure from his earlier work. We're excited to see what he's come up with next.
