Tomorrow and Sunday are the final two days of E.A.S.T. If you love art, or just want to see some of the coolest things happening in Austin, this is the place to be! Visit the East Austin Studio Tour website to find which artists will be where. You may still be able to find a gorgeous printed catalog and map, but you can also view the catalog online.
One of the coolest features on this year’s EAST website is the ability to create your own tour (because let’s face it, there is no way you could visit all 300 artists, 150 studios, 28 exhibition spaces, 19 happenings, and all the furthermores in 2 days, or even 4, in case you’d already started last weekend). Go to the EAST website and click on the link for “Your E.A.S.T.,” then start searching and adding artists, studios, and exhibition spaces. I quickly made a very tiny list, which you can view here, though it leaves out whole great groups of artists. Sorry, I was a bit bleary-eyed, and unfortunately, it seems you can’t add to the list, once you finalize it. Drat! In fact, I left out the exhibition space where I will be this weekend!
I will be at The Vortex again tomorrow, from 11am-6pm: Exhibition Space #E28, 2307 Manor Road–a large Theatre and yard located just east of the dry cleaners at Cherrywood/Chestnut and Manor. It’s deep back behind the parking lot that’s to the south of
I should be there Sunday, too, though I’m not making any promises. I’m not sure I can stand to hang around that long, and I’d sure love to visit some other artists! (So do let me know in advance if you are planning to come to visit me on Sunday; otherwise…you can always call me after the tour if you’d like to visit my studio.
