Come on…admit it. You know you want to be among the first to see the offerings from this year’s annual East Austin Studio Tour. This annual fundraiser for Art Alliance Austin, which takes place over two weekends (November 12-13 and 19-20), extends an open-door invitation to the community to visit art spaces and studios on the city’s east side.
For those of us who just can’t wait long enough, there’s the Art Night Austin E.A.S.T. Kick-Off Event and Artist After-Party. The tour will be hosted by a handful of venues, all tricked out with the latest works from established and emerging artists. Nibbles and beverages from east side favorites, including Takoba and Buenos Aires Cafe (among many others), will fortify you at each of the locations along the way which, in the case of Austin Social Planner, tends to make our wallet open up a little faster!
Top the night off with a grand after-party alongside participating artists. Last year’s after-part was a humdinger, and this year promises to take it up a notch with performances by electro duo BK and Mr. E and DJ Lil Lolo the Don of Time, also known as visual artist Carlos Rosales-Silva, whose work is currently showing in the lobby of The Jones Center on Congress Avenue.
