East Austin Studio Tour 2012: Emily’s Picks

So, we’ve been busy… mostly with work. Oh yeah, and planning our wedding which is happening in a little over a week. Yikes!

This guy was in a studio at Big Medium a few years ago during E.A.S.T.

The wedding planning has sparked an unprecedented surge of productivity in other areas. Basically, super productive procrastination. We’ve hosted a number of dinners for groups of friends, made a baby quilt, and cleaned the house a number of times. I guess that’s a good thing.

This rare blog post is yet another sophisticated procrastination attempt. It’s East Austin Studio Tour this weekend and next, and since we won’t get to go on much (if any) of the tour this year, you’ll have to go for us!

Catalogs are bigger than ever this year, and are available at Austin Library locations (as well as E.A.S.T. stops, but they go quickly!). There are nearly 200 studios on the map and even more participating artists.

Because I just didn’t have enough to do, I made a quick list of my picks for tour stops this year. Download yourself a copy here: EAST2012

The list is by no means comprehensive, but it does include a few of my all time favorite stops, many of the multi-artist sites, and some spots that I haven’t checked out before but look particularly interesting to me.

As always, if you find yourself on the eastside this weekend or next, I encourage you to stop into a few studios – the diversity is my favorite part of the tour. Some of my favorite spots have been accidental discoveries, only revealed because I checked out something nearby a planned destination.

Bring some money and buy some local art for holiday gifts (for yourself or others!).

Best of all, just get out there and see how artists are working in your backyard (sometimes quite literally).
